Studios' comic book series prequel to War of the Planet of the Apes, coming out this July just before the new film hits theaters from 20th Century Fox. For our latest Q&A feature, we had the chance to discuss the new four-issue series with Walker, as well as his Day of the Dead and Escape from New York dream projects.
Burning rubber on the small screen tonight is the first episode of Blood Drive, a new Syfy series that's both a lurid love letter to Roger Corman's Death Race movies and the gory, glorious drive-in days of old, while also making a mark with its own crimson-stained swagger. Taking place in a world circa 1999 where water is coveted above currency and violence is commonplace, Blood Drive is populated with intriguing characters looking to make it across the finish line in a cross-country race with a big prize and an even bigger penalty for losing. There is nothing else on television quite like Blood Drive, and with the series premiering tonight on Syfy at 10:00pm ET, I had the pleasure of speaking with lead actor Alan Ritchson about playing Arthur Bailey, a moral compass in a world gone mad.
Born on Halloween night (in the US, although it was already November 1st in Istria), actor Massimo Dobrovic has shared a link with the horror genre since his birth, and he's strengthened that connection over the years with memorable roles in a wide range of films and TV series.

For our latest Q&A feature, we caught up with Massimo to discuss both series, as well as working with Brendan Fraser on Behind the Curtain of Night, his new cookbook, and much more.

Season 3 of Fear The Walking Dead will prove to be the most dangerous one yet for the Clarks, and with the third season recently kicking off with back-to-back episodes on AMC, I had the great pleasure of speaking with Kim Dickens about what's next for one of the most enigmatic characters in The Walking Dead universe.
In the shared world of The Walking Dead and its companion series, there is no one quite like Victor Strand. With sharp wits and a cunning, chameleon-like nature, words are Strand's greatest weapons. Although as smooth and suave as they come, Strand faces new obstacles that will challenge and maybe even change him in the third season of Fear The Walking Dead, premiering Sunday, June 4th on AMC, and I recently had the great pleasure of catching up with actor Colman Domingo to discuss the next chapter for his endlessly intriguing character.
For a group of friends in the web series Graves, the only thing more horrifying than turning thirty in their hometown is the resurgence of literal demons from their past. A potently funny and heartfelt blend of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Todd & The Book of Pure Evil, and its own original spin on the horror and drama genres, Graves just finished up a stellar second season, and we had the pleasure of catching up with the web series' creator, Terence Krey, for our latest Q&A to discuss the first two seasons of his show and his plans for a third and final season.

Clay McLeod Chapman doesn't just write horror, he performs it in The Pumpkin Pie Show, an immersive storytelling experience that recently celebrated its 20th anniversary. If you haven't had the pleasure of seeing Chapman perform (which our own Daily Dead Editor-in-Chief Jonathan James experienced at The Overlook Film Festival), you can certainly read his work anytime in a number of books, including his new short story collection, Nothing Untoward: Stories from The Pumpkin Pie Show. To celebrate the release of his new collection, we caught up with Chapman for our latest Q&A feature to discuss his literary influences, twenty years of The Pumpkin Pie Show, writing The Tribe trilogy for Disney press, and his upcoming Marvel project that he describes as "a love story between Deadpool and Venom."

You may know him as Winston Zeddmore, Sergeant Albrecht, or even Justin Jones, but right now Ernie Hudson is using his versatile talents in front of the camera to bring the character of Captain Ned Conrad to life on the FOX series APB. To celebrate the season 1 finale of the high-tech yet emotionally grounded police series, I had the great pleasure of speaking with Hudson about his new show, and we also had the chance to talk about his desire to play Winston once again in the world of Ghostbusters, why he doesn't plan on returning to The Crow franchise, and his secretive time on the Twin Peaks revival.
As a man with multiple personalities (23, to be exact), James McAvoy is enthralling to watch in in M.
