Question of the Day
King to write for ‘Dead’?
Stephen King is in talks to write a season-two episode of AMC’s “Walking Dead,” actress Laurie Holden said at a panel event at the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo last weekend, notes the Hollywood Reporter.
Miss Holden, who plays Andrea on the show, didn’t provide further details.
“Walking Dead” creator and executive producer Frank Darabont has an existing relationship with Mr. King — he previously adapted the horror master’s “The Shawshank Redemption,” “The Green Mile” and “The Mist” for the big screen.
“Walking Dead” actor Jon Bernthal, a native of the District, told the panel that Mr. Darabont will not direct the show’s season-two premiere, but most likely will direct an episode later in the season, according to THR.
Sheen empathizes with son
“I know what hell he’s living in. I’ve had psychotic episodes in public,” Martin tells the U.K. Telegraph. “One of them was on camera — the opening scene of ‘Apocalypse Now.’ So I know what Charlie is going through.
“When you do something like that, that is out of control, that’s the most difficult thing,” he goes on. “You have to have courage.”
He blames his son’s behavior on his long history of drug abuse.
“You know, Charlie’s 45 years old. He’s not a kid. Emotionally he still is,” the elder Mr. Sheen says. “Because when you’re addicted, you don’t grow emotionally. So when you get clean and sober, you’re starting at the moment you started using drugs or alcohol. You’re emotionally crippled.”
He says he thinks his son, who was fired from the CBS sitcom “Two and a Half Men” last month, can recover.
“Faith can help all of us,” he says. “Addiction is the dark side. It’s a reflection of despair. And it’s fed by all the other negativity.”
