Sarah Wayne Callies staring in "The Walking Dead"

I haven’t posted much about the casting for ABC’s “The Walking Dead” I’m excited about this series so I’ll have to start doing that now.

Fresh off a guest-starring stint on House, Sarah Wayne Callies (Who is very cute BTW) has just scored a much bigger role. The former Prison Break star will take on the female lead in AMC’s heavily anticipated The Walking Dead, a show based on Robert Kirkman’s comic books.

As first reported by Entertainment Weekly, Callies will portray Lori Grimes, the troubled wife of the show’s hero, Rick (Andrew Lincoln).

The comic book series “The Walking Dead” follows the travels of a group of people trying to survive in a world overrun by the living dead. The drama begins production in August.
