Josh McDermitt can neither confirm nor deny whether he'll be in season 2 of "Stranger Things" ... but does have a funny way of explaining his run-in with the kid stars.
We got the 'Walking Dead' actor Tuesday at LAX, where our camera guy grilled McDermitt about a pic he posted Monday with 3 of the boys from the Netflix show ... with hashtags like #CrossoverEpisode fueling rumors he'll star in the upcoming season.
Like Josh says ... he can't talk about that. But he's happy to deadpan his way through their meetup in Portland.
ZOMBIES, BEWARE ... a couple of MLB stars just got some heavy-duty undead killing weaponry in the form of Lucille, the iconic barbed wire covered baseball bat from "The Walking Dead."
BTW -- if you don't watch 'TWD' (which you should), Lucille is wielded by the ultimate scumbag/badass Negan ... and was used in one of the most brutal scenes in television history earlier this season.
That brutality didn't stop J.D. Martinez of the Tigers and Yasiel Puig of the Dodgers from fanning out when replicas of Lucille were delivered to their team's spring training earlier Friday, courtesy of the show's production.
Thomas Payne's setting the record straight -- the character he plays on "The Walking Dead" is NOT gay ... not that there's anything wrong with that.
We caught up with Thomas at LAX Wednesday and asked him about a recent interview where he seemed to insinuate his character, Jesus, is gay. Thomas says people misunderstood him a bit, but he still thinks the world's ready for the concept.
The brothers who convinced their half-sedated little sister the zombie apocalypse was upon them ... are getting their shot to make it in Hollywood.
Cabot Phillips, the main prankster behind the viral faux zombie attack video, tells us that since the video went viral they've gotten offers from producers to do reality shows. He says one of them even had a test shoot planned for the fam.
If you missed it, Cabot sprang the zombie plot on his sister, Millicent, right after she got her wisdom teeth pulled. It's brilliantly hysterical.
Even though Millicent's reaction was painfully real ... Cabot says she's getting offers from talent agents who want to rep her as an actress. He says she's more interested in writing comedy, but adds they'd all love cameos on "The Walking Dead" -- which was the inspiration for their prank.
"The Walking Dead" creator Robert Kirkmanis 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 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.
Pewdiepie and 'Walking Dead' ... the union of YouTube's biggest star and TV's biggest show -- the kind of thing that would blow MILLIONS of superfans' minds -- and we got Pewdiepie to weigh in on the rumor.
Ever since Pewdiepie touched down in L.A. two weeks ago, his fans have been dying to know why he's here. Keep in mind the guy posts tutorials on how to play the 'Walking Dead' video games ... which gets tens of millions of views.
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."
