Will THE WALKING DEAD Welcome Stephen King?

A cast member certainly thinks so.

This weekend there was a big convention called C2E2, the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo, which I think I never heard of before in my life. A ton of stuff happened at this convention and it sounds like it was a good time. But perhaps the most intriguing bit of ‘news’ comes from the lips of one of the stars of AMC’s The Walking Dead.

According to Laurie Holden, who plays Andrea on the show (you know, the blonde sister who didn’t die), Stephen King is in talks to write a season 2 episode. This makes a lot of sense considering the long history between King and Walking Dead showrunner Frank Darabont. King has even done some TV writing before; for instance he wrote an episode of The X-Files back in the day.

But does that mean it’s true? I rarely trust info like this from actors, especially on TV series - they often know even less about what’s happening behind the scenes on their own shows than we do. I guess we’ll find out soon enough.
