im a little disappointed here. I really dont care how great of an actor is when they dont look like the character. You would't cast robert dinero as batman just because he can act would you? This guy looks nothing like the character and in a visual medium such as film looking the part is important.
Andrew Lincoln looks nothing like Rick in the comics, but he's done well in the role so far.
I think Andrew Lincoln is a great actor, but almost from day one this role really just wasn't meant for him. Its never felt organic or right. When this show was pitched to HBO I heard they had Thomas Jane set for Rick. He probably could have channeled the character much better.
On the other hand, Jon Bernthal is killing as Shane.
I think this dude will make a fine Governor based on what I've seen him do.
I always assumed that Thomas Jane would be the first actor they went for, especially with the Darabont connection.I kinda guessed that he was unavailable at the time so was unable to take up the role.
As for Savini I think it would be pretty cool to see him pop up as the biker Character he played in Dawn of the Dead
