The Walking Dead’s Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) is currently packing heat on the October 2014 cover of Men’s Fitness. Life is good.
But, when you think about it, it is kind of weird that the guy holding signs for Keira Knightley in Love, Actually is now a 40-year-old action hero. Andy isn’t just a badass leading man on AMC’s No. 1 ratings darling, though — he’s also become a heartthrob and a sex symbol. Part of that has to be tied to the physical transformation of his character, Rick Grimes, from the pale, clean-shaven sheriff’s deputy of Season 1 to the bearded man who bites people’s necks off in late Season 4/early Season 5.
Andy told Men’s Fitness he hired a trainer for the first time last season, to help him bulk up. He said he’s usually more of a runner than a gym guy, but his trainer made him stop the distance running and add free weights to build some mass. Andy also said he (shudder) cut carbs and sugar out of his diet, even though it wasn’t easy or fun. “Why would you want to do that to yourself, man?” he asked. Good question.
Watch the video below to see Andy behind-the-scenes of his Men’s Fitness shoot; he talks about going on a diet for the first time in his life, and you can see cool black-and-white shots of the British actor a horse, making him look like a retro Western star. Nice.

To some invasion of privacy is as worrisome as the pending zombie apocalypse. A class action lawsuit has been filed against AMC for allegedly sharing its website’s users viewing habits with Facebook without permission.
Ethel Austin-Spearman is one ticked off The Walking Dead fan. Since 2013, Spearman has been visiting AMC’s website to watch video clips of the hit zombie show. Unbeknownst to her, every time she stayed logged in on her Facebook account and watched a clip, AMC would share that information with Facebook. AMC transmits the user’s Facebook identification as well as the title of the video viewed by the individual. This is not just for The Walking Dad but for any other video on AMC’s website. Facebook can use that information for any purpose including creating targeted advertisements based upon the user’s viewing habits. For example, if Facebook knows that Spearman is spending time watching clips of The Walking Dead it may show her an advertisement for a website that sells zombie merchandise.
Spearman filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of herself and similar situated AMC website users for violation of the Video Privacy Protection Act which prohibits the disclosure of video viewing records without a person’s express written consent. She seeks damages of $2,500 per violation which could be an astronomical numbers based on the number of Facebook users that have had their information shared.

As for last-gen, the first season of The Walking Dead is already available at retail, so today’s announcement will just be bringing the second season to store shelves.

Dutch Bros. Coffee has teamed up with Walking Dead co-creator Tony Moore to create Issue 2 of the Dutch Bros. Rebellion: Further Adventures of Rebel Man Comic Book.
Brant Boersma, Dutch Bros. Director of Culture, has been a fan of Tony’s work for quite some time. When the opportunity to meet Tony came up, Brant jumped. They met for coffee, and through a shared love of comics they immediately became friends.
“We are super stoked to have Tony on board for the Dutch Bros. Rebellion,” said Brant with his infectious humor. “It’s great to work with him. He is so handsome and brilliant with a pencil.”
The Dutch Bros. Rebellion: Further Adventures of Rebel Man is a short, full-color comic. Written by Dan Buck, penciled and inked by Tony Moore and colored by John Rauch. It follows Issue 1, Dutch Bros. Zombie Rebellion, which was black and white drawn by Jeff Wester and written by industry star Nathan Edmonson. (more…)
