These Two TV Stars Are Hooking Up

6/17/2015 2:16pm EDT
Norman Reedus & Emily Kinney
Norman Reedus is reportedly dating his former "Walking Dead" co-star Emily Kinney. The pair "had a connection early on in the show," an insider told Us Weekly, adding, "the romance developed recently. They're still pretty guarded about it."

The couple has clicked for quite some time -- both on set and off. The source added, "She always called him the sweetest guy on the set."

Kinney's character, Beth, had formed a close relationship with Reedus' character, Daryl Dixon, but Beth was killed off in 2014. Kinney she told Us in December: Everyone reached out, though I remember Norman texted me...

5 Badass Moments From 'The Walking Dead' Season 5 Finale
If you didn’t end up sopped in nervous sweat by the end of “Conquer,” you may not have been paying attention. Nobody does heart-pounding tension like The Walking Dead and the season 5 finale had it in spades. Half of the show’s beloved characters were in mortal danger at one point, not that that’s anything new. But in a finale it feels like anything could happen. Rick be on their doorsteps in the last few moments. And you never know what a The Walking Dead finale’s biggest shocker is going to be.

“Conquer” sets up the next season’s arc better than any other of the show’s finales ever has....

'The Walking Dead' Review: Five Badass Moments From 'Try'
The Walking Dead can feel predictable at times. There are inevitable moments that can make everything else feel like filler. We knew Rick and Shane would one day have an epic showdown, so everything in between was buildup. When Rick promised to kill Gareth with that axe, the audience only had to count the minutes until it actually happened exactly as expected. As soon as Pete was introduced, sitting in a shadowy silhouette on the porch, it was obvious to every regular TWD viewer that Rick would eventually kill him and everything else is just bidding time.

So, when the show manages to pull ...

5 Badass Moments From 'The Walking Dead' Sunday Night

'The Walking Dead' Recap: 5 Badass Moments From 'Spend'
“Spend” took a huge risk when it sat out many of The Walking Dead’s biggest characters. For an episode so pivotal to the Alexandria arc, it doesn’t feature some of the show’s most important characters like Michonne, Carl, Sasha, and Daryl. Even Rick takes a backseat to most of the action, mostly reacting to the more personal dynamics in Alexandria. But unlike most episodes that focus on the show’s least used characters, “Spend” does so successfully.

The episode does a far better job showcasing the dynamics of Alexandria’s people and Rick’s group than the previous episode’s disastrous dinne...

5 Badass Moments From Last Night's 'Walking Dead'

'The Walking Dead' Recap: 5 Badass Moments From 'Forget'
It must be strange be to go to a party after years of living in a constant state of fear, always looking over your shoulder for a new threat. How do you act and interact with people? Do you bring gifts? Do you make small talk? (“I baked some cookies today. What did you do?” “Killed some animated dead dudes.” “Cool….did you see any pasta makers out there?”) What’s the post-apocalyptic party etiquette?

It’s even stranger that Deana practically forced the Alexandria newcomers to attend this pretty boring party with no real purpose but to acclimate the crew to normality. For somebody who is po...

'The Walking Dead' Review: 5 Badass Moments From 'Remember'
Remember when Rick’s best friend and most trusted ally ended up being his worst enemy? Remember when the group found a safe location in the prison that they thought could sustain them with that puny garden and fenced walls? Remember when a charismatic one-eyed leader promised to take care of his people? Remember when Terminus was going to be the savior community? All of those things may have happened before, but that doesn’t mean they can’t happen again. Is it even possible for our group of survivors to ever feel safe again?

“Remember” explores that idea of acclimating to a society again a...

'The Walking Dead' Recap: 5 Badass Moments From 'The Distance'
A safe location, the promise of food and safety, and new characters who don’t look like they slept in the gutter for a month? Things are looking up for both the group and the viewers. After years and years in Atlanta, encountering the same walker-filled wooded area, with the potential for the same type of villains, the group has finally gotten somewhere new. There’s a lot of exciting potential for the future of this show, but its success all depends on the next episode and on the characters that are introduced there. The Governor and the hipster cannibals were terrific antagonists, so those...

'The Walking Dead': 5 Badass Moments From 'Them'

2/16/2015 9:00am EST
'The Walking Dead' Recap: 5 Badass Moments From 'Them'
It’s fitting that the slowest episode of The Walking Dead is the one where the gang most resembles walkers. The crew is trudging towards Washington DC fueled by their last remaining energy. Without a car, food, clean water, or much hope left, the gang is barely surviving as they inch towards their destination. They’re also all dealing with the recent loss of two of their group. To say morale is low would be an understatement.

Although “Them” is by far the slowest episode of the season, and perhaps the entire series, it made way for some pivotal moments. The episode felt like it was trying ...

'The Walking Dead' Recap: 5 Badass Moments From 'What Happened A
Wow. What an episode to open the second half of the season. Although it started off feeling like a new art school graduates attempt to be deep, all of the pieces eventually came together to make a stunning episode. Not only did “What Happened and What’s Going On” advance the plot quite a bit and introduce a possible new danger, it was also a beautiful send off to a character who never really got a chance to be his best self. Only The Walking Dead could manage to make a slow episode also exhilarating and filled with tension. If this is the quality we can expect from the rest of the season, n...

10 Things We Want to See On The Rest Of 'The Walking Dead' Seaso
The first half The Walking Dead season 5 was undeniable proof that the new showrunner, Scott Gimple, was the perfect person to put at the helm of AMC’s biggest show. TWD has only improved throughout the season, giving us better drama, more satisfying action sequences, and a greater understanding of the characters than ever before. Carol’s transformation from timid mother to full-out Rambo, the introduction of Abraham and his out-of-state mission, and the constant evolution of Rick as a leader have been highlights of a constantly interesting season.

With the second half approaching, we have...

8 Killer 'Walking Dead' Facts You Didn't Know - Behind The Scene
AMC's The Walking Dead is well into its fifth season and is still pulling in great reviews from critics and fans alike. The comic book turned TV series has had some great plotlines over the years, but there's been some great stories behind the scenes of the show as well.

Here are 8 facts about The Walking Dead that you probably didn't know.

Zombies Are Friendly to the Environment

Those zombies may look like they're out to destroy everything in sight, but the costumes themselves are actually very friendly to Planet Earth.

TV used to have rules. On pay cable- your HBOs, your Cinemaxes- anything and everything is fair play.

Want to turn a TV show into softcore porn? Watch a man's skull pop in the grip of a man-mountain? Replace an entire scene's worth of dialogue with nothing but F-bombs?

Go for it. It's pay cable- no one can stop you.

But the other TV stations- the kinder, gentler ones that don't cost a bundle on top of your normal cable bill each month- those are supposed to tone down the violence.

Not anymore. Now, the same network that once brought you "Friends" brings an assembly line of severed faces...

Television's 10 Best Female Characters Of 2014
No more simple sidekicks. No more dopey love interests with no purpose other than mooning over the smoldering leading man. Female characters have come a long way. From the anti-hero badasses who don’t mind destroying lives if it means getting their way to intelligent, compassionate women with ambition, 2014 was home to dozens of amazing female characters. These women push boundaries, more than hold their own against their male counterparts, and entertain audiences all over.

While it was tough to narrow down the barrage of awesome women to a short list, we have the 10 best female characters...

Kim Dickens Heads Up 'Walking Dead' Spinoff Series

Kim Dickens
"Gone Girl" star Kim Dickens is set to play the female lead in the forthcoming "Walking Dead" spinoff.

The actress will join actor Cliff Curtis in the as-yet-untitled series pilot, which is called "Cobalt" for now, and all the zombie action will move from Georgia to a west coast setting.

According to, Dickens beat out several other actresses who read for the role. She'll play a guidance counselor named Nancy Tompkins, who is also a single mother of two teens.

Robert Kirkman, who created "The Walking Dead" graphic novel which the series is based upon, co-created the series sp...

'The Walking Dead' Midseason Finale: 10 Badass Moments

'The Walking Dead' Midseason Finale Recap: 10 Badass Moments Fro
As far as credible threats go, the Hospital Officers were probably the least effective villains The Walking Dead has ever had. For a big part of the season, they were really only a threat to Beth, who, at the time, was one of the least developed characters on the show, barely earning the credit of being a main character. While the season took great pains to build up Beth, it couldn’t make Dawn and her rapist officers memorable antagonists. Gareth and his band of cannibals were far more frightening, even if they only lasted three episodes total. If there’s one major fault in the first half o...

'The Walking Dead': 10 Badass Moments From 'Crossed'

11/24/2014 9:40am EST
The Walking Dead
“Crossed” proves that episodes that feature all of the characters are stronger than the episodes featuring one group at a time. Last week’s jaunt with Carol and Daryl was great, but we also had to endure Beth and Abraham’s episodes in order to get to it. These standalone episodes probably have more to do with filming schedules than creative opportunities, but they’re to the detriment of the show. In “Crossed” there was plenty of time for each of the groups: Rick’s group, those left at the church, Abraham’s dawdlers, and the hospital crew. Most of the characters got a moment to shine, even o...

'The Walking Dead' Review: 10 Badass Moments From 'Consumed'
The past few episodes didn’t quite capture the excitement of the opening ones. With the group once again split up, it’s tough to care for a full hour about characters that haven’t had enough time or emotional resonance to carry an episode. “Consumed” is proof that episodes where the group is split off can work and be shining examples of what the show should be.

First, the collection of characters is perfect. Daryl and Carol are two of the show’s most popular and interesting characters, both of which still have pasts to explore. Previous episodes featuring Beth and Abraham as the leads were...

'The Walking Dead' Recap: 8 Badass Moments From 'Self Help'
The show is never as strong as it is when the group is all together. Without Rick, Daryl, Glenn, Carol, Maggie, Michonne, and the rest of the gang working together, the episodes often feel like they’re a diversion from the real story. It’s even worse when these filler episodes come one after the other, with Beth and Abraham-centric episodes airing in subsequent weeks. After last season’s disaster, the show should be keeping the group together for as long as possible, because those episodes are always the strongest.

After weeks of nobody in the group (sans Daryl) caring a lick about the whereabouts of Beth, we finally discover what she’s been up to these past weeks. While some might say she had a lucky escape from the cannibal safe haven, Beth found herself in a completely different type of terror. The threat was less about getting eaten and more a slowly drawn horror where your life and body become somebody else’s property, without much hope of freedom. It was one of those rare glimpses of different societies and survivors that The Walking Dead hardly ever spends time exploring.

Damn, this season is moving at a lightning speed. After 4 seasons of slow moving plots, in which spending half a season looking for a single character was expected, The Walking Dead has finally found an exciting pace that matches the tone of the show.

Every episode so far this season has resolved some issue (how long will it take to get out of Terminus? Will they get a clue about Beth’s whereabouts? Will they ...

Retailers are reporting that a record number of consumers will be celebrating Halloween this year because the annual fall event has increased in popularity.

“Strangers” was a much quieter episode than the season 5 premiere, but that didn’t make it any less bonkers. In fact, the quiet moments only made every moment more tension-filled. Every time the characters slow-mo walked through the covered woods, there was an ominous feeling following them with each step. As Season 4 taught us, there’s no safety, not even for a minute. And last week’s episode left a couple of hanging threads that come back to haunt our survivors in a major way.

7 Bold Predictions For Season 5 Of 'The Walking Dead'
After four seasons of rivalries, tension, shocking death, and tons of reanimated dead people wandering around, it’s still a wonder that The Walking Dead can still manage to surprise us week after week. Throughout the haitus many viewers believed that our protagonists would be stuck in Terminus for ages, with the much wanted reunions unbearably delayed. But the season opener “No Sanctuary” exceeded all expectations by putting a season’s worth of activity in one episode.

After an excruciating wait, The Walking Dead is back and bloodier than ever. If you thought the show was brutal before, “No Sanctuary” kicked it up a level or two.

The fifth season of The Walking Dead is set to kick off Sunday night, and producers of the hit AMC show were kind enough to share the first four minutes of the season five premiere episode, "No Sanctuary." The clip surfaced on Saturday.

The zombie-less teaser is filled with tension and will surely make the rest of the wait leading up to the show painful for fans.

The video begins with "Then" and a brief scene featuring Gareth, who was introduced last season, and a group of people in a dark room while a woman screaming can be heard nearby.

Cut to "Now," when Rick and the others are seen i...
