'Walking Dead' Creator Drop the Zombie Cigarillos!! Sues Merchandisers

12/8/2015 9:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1208-robert-kirkman-walking-dead-getty-4"The Walking Dead" creator Robert Kirkman is fighting off alleged squatters like a pack of zombies -- he's suing to stop them from cashing in on his hit show. 

According to his lawsuit, Kirkman is going after 5 people who've filed for 'Walking Dead' trademarks to sell everything under the sun. He says they're stealing the brand to promote lipstick, coffee mugs, carpets, candles, and even cigarillos.

The most bizarre one -- Kirkman says someone in NJ wants to open a zombie-themed health food restaurant. 'Cause nothing says healthy living in Jersey ... like undead quinoa. 

He wants the court to block sales of all the products, and any profits the defendants have made off his baby.

Norman Reedus Hints that Glen on 'Walking Dead' is Dead

11/22/2015 7:07 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Norman Reedus did not say for sure if Glen on "Walking Dead" is toast, but he sure hinted it was so.

We got Norman at LAX Saturday and our photog initially knew better than to ask straight up if Glen was dead.  Instead he asked if Glen was like Jon Snow, who could actually still be alive in some form on "Game of Thrones."

Norman gives an interesting answer, and then our photog can't help but ask the question he initially resisted asking.

Add to that a video he posted of his pants covered in blood -- and you start to understand why everyone thinks he's about to guest star on either "The Walking Dead" or "Fear the Walking Dead."

'Walking Dead' Star Show Isn't Racist It's the Opposite!

9/4/2015 7:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sonequa Martin-Green -- one of the few African-Americans on "The Walking Dead" who hasn't met a swift death -- says the show isn't racist ... it's just coincidence lots of black people die.

Sonequa goes a lot further, and says the dye is cast before the actors are chosen, and it's just the luck of the draw that black actors excel in the auditions.

Just don't kill Glenn, we beg of you!

Exclusive Details

0617-main-norman-reedus-emily-TMZ-01'Walking Dead's Daryl Dixon is not dating his fellow survivor pal Beth Greene in real life ... so he says.

Norman Reedus' rep tells TMZ, the actor's relationship with former co-star Emily Kinney is strictly platonic.

We got these pics of Norman and Emily at Paper Plane, a dive bar in Decatur, GA. It looks real chummy, but the two have been good pals for a while and that's it. 

She had a concert in the area earlier in the evening and they hung out afterward.

Emily played Beth on the zombie thriller but was killed off last year. Their characters were in the same survival group and he was protective like a bro.  

Too bad ... we were rooting for more.


'Walking Dead' Producer Tyreese and Father Gabriel Are Still Family

5/8/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's been a tough week for "The Walking Dead" stars Chad L. Coleman and Seth Gilliam ... but show producer Scott M. Gimple still has their backs, and says society can learn a lesson ... from one of them.

Gimple was at LAX when he told our photog that Chad -- whose character Tyreese has already been eaten by zombies -- made a good point when he questioned humanity. Granted, he could've done it without screaming on a packed subway train.

As for Seth ... Gimple gave us his prediction for Father Gabriel's future ... on the show -- and in the legal system. He also has some tasty zombie apocalypse tips for folks in L.A..

'Walking Dead' Star Arrest Vid Partly Released Put Your Hands Where I Can See 'Em!

Breaking News

"The Walking Dead" star Seth Gilliam took police on a 4 minute high speed chase down a highway before they cuffed him and hauled away ... and the whole incident was captured on dash cam video.

Cops in Peachtree City, GA busted Gilliam early Sunday morning and said he was doing 107 mph when he blew past them -- and you can see in this video ... he was definitely flying low.

When officers finally pull him over ... one of the officers yells, "I need your hands where I can see 'em. Come back here." Gilliam steps out and immediately gets cuffed while the officer explain he's being arrested for reckless driving.

Now, the odd part -- the video cuts off right after the handcuffs go on Gilliam. Cops say they also found a joint in the car, and Gilliam said he'd had 3 beers and a shot. Seems strange that portion of the arrest video wasn't released.

Peachtree City PD tell us, "It's part of a criminal investigation and anything related to evidence that could prosecute him won't be given out until the investigation is over."

Seth Gilliam Arrested For DUI

Seth Gilliam plays a priest on "The Walking Dead," but got busted for blazing like a bat out of hell down a highway, possession of marijuana, and DUI. Let us pray. 

Police in Peachtree City, GA arrested Gilliam -- who also played a cop on "The Wire" -- early Sunday morning after officers say they clocked him at 107 mph. Once he was pulled over ... cops smelled booze, and asked Gilliam if he'd been drinking. They say he admitted to having 3 beers and a shot.

According to the police report, the arresting officer also discovered a joint in a cigarette box, hidden in the arm rest.

Cops say Gilliam blew a .107 blood alcohol level. He was arrested and released after posting a $9,818 bond.

It's weird -- Seth's arrest came 2 days after his 'Wire' and 'Walking' co-star Chad L. Coleman freaked out on an NYC train. Something in the water?


'Walking Dead' Star I Regret NYC Subway Rant

5/2/2015 7:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Walking Dead" star Chad L. Coleman regrets causing a scene on a NYC subway Friday, but stands by his message.

Coleman tells us, he had a lot of "built up frustration" because of the Baltimore situation and just lost it when someone on the train used the "n" word in referring to him.  The guy's friend said she recognized Coleman, and he responded by saying, "No, we don't know that n*****."

Coleman insists he was not drunk during the rant, but adds he's not proud he couldn't control his emotions.  

And the actor wanted to apologize to cast members of "The Walking Dead" and his family.

Chad L. Coleman -- an actor who famously played Tyreese on "The Walking Dead" and Cutty on "The Wire" had a complete meltdown Friday on a New York City subway train.

Coleman is screaming, making sure everyone knows he's Chad L. Coleman from "The Walking Dead" and "The Wire." His rant is nonsensical and ear-shattering loud.

You see passengers recoil and eventually the seats around him are empty.

We spoke with Coleman, who told us he heard a guy and a girl on the train talking, trying to figure out where they knew him. He says the guy told the girl, "No, we don't know that n*****," and that set him off.

As for the screams about humanity, he says he was referencing the problems in Baltimore.

He says he was sober on the train.

If you want to make "Walking Dead" star Andrew Lincoln spill his show's secrets, there is one way to do it … threaten to ruin "Breaking Bad" for him.

Our photog caught up with Lincoln before the season finale of "WD" aired last night, and we asked him whether he thought the show could eclipse the finale of "BB."

But to our surprise, Lincoln said he's not caught up on the antics of Jesse Pinkman and Walter White.

'Walking Dead' Creator to AMC I'll Cremate You In Court

12/17/2013 2:28 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News
1217-walking-dead-amcThe creator of "The Walking Dead" -- one of the most popular shows on TV -- wants his pound of flesh from AMC -- to the tune of TENS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS.

Frank Darabont was the mastermind who adapted the popular comic book into a series back in 2009.  He claims in his suit he would get 12.5% of the profits, but he claims AMC unceremoniously fired him in 2011 and he hasn't received a penny.

Here's what he says is especially galling.  The show is a juggernaut, sometimes even beating Sunday Night Football.  Yet AMC tells him the show is operating at a deficit.  Darabont says AMC has outright defrauded him by producing and distributing the show to itself and essentially cooking the books to screw him out of his share.

What really pisses him off ... Darabont says the creator of "Mad Men" -- which also airs on AMC -- gets a huge cut of a $3 million fee PER EPISODE, even though "Mad Men" gets less than 1/4 of the viewership of "The Walking Dead."

Darabont wants 10s of millions of dollars.  And this is kinda funny.  He also wants a cut of "The Talking Dead," the talk show that follows each episode.
