    @ghostman -- Yes, I have. That's not the problem, though. Judging by the plot, he seems like a complete miscast.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx As for Jonah Hill? He can be a serious actor, have you seen him in Moneyball?

    @SherlockHolmes2009@diaigma As long as he doesn't act like a total dick and a douche-bag in the show like he did in TWD, I'd be glad to watch it.
