Wednesday, August 19 by

CHUD was the first to point out that sexy model-actress Diora Baird has announced via Twitter that she has auditioned for a role in the upcoming Thor film. No one is certain which role she read for or if she'll even get the part but it's a slow news morning so conjecture like this makes headlines. Honestly. It was between this or pictures of dogs sniffing celebrities.Tee-hee! Look at 'im sniff her!!Get a whiff of these fresh-scented morning links… A Gallery of Dogs Sniffing Celebrities.

FRANK DARABONT ADAPTS ‘THE WALKING DEAD’ FOR TV
Wednesday, August 12 by

The world's greatest zombie comic book is shuffling its way toward a small screen adaptation. The ridiculously rad Frank Darabont is in final talks to write and direct The Walking Dead for AMC. If you're unfamiliar with the books, the story centers on a group of strangers who must fight for survival in a zombie-infested world. Though the focus is on how we deal with one another once society and the creature comforts crumble, there is quite a bit of disturbing gore throughout. This is super exciting and Darabont is the perfect choice to helm. I'm also very excited that zombies will finally be brought to the small screen. The zombies on The Hills don't count because those are fast zombies. (/Film)Sink your teeth into these fleshy morning links…Studios line up for Kick-Ass.
