Official Pic of Michael Rooker in The Walking Dead Season 3

8 Comments

Well, the cat’s out of the bag now, right? No need to keep hiding it anymore. After all, AMC has now released an official image of Michael Rooker from the third season of “The Walking Dead”. Rooker is reprising his Season 1 role of Merle Dixon, redneck racist douche bag extraordinaire. Last we saw ol Merle, he was handcuffed up on a roof with zombies pounding at a door to get at him. (Merle appeared as a hallucination in Season 2.)

From the looks of previously posted set images, it looks like Merle has found some new friends and allies, or at least, people willing to put up with his charming ways. The problem, of course, will be when Merle and his little brother Daryl (Norman Reedus) meet up again. Little bro has changed a bit, and has even grudgingly accepted Rick and company as his new family. That’s going to get a little dicey with Merle back.

Season 3 of “The Walking Dead” returns this October on AMC.

    Forget about Merle Vs. Darryl I wanna see Merle Vs. Rick!!! He stranded his ass on that roof handcuffed to a pipe. If you thought Merle was ornery before I can only imagine how pissed he’ll be now! Can’t wait!

      Me either! “You cost me my hand!” I’ll be taking yours! Oh Shit! I just realized I bet theyre gonna make Merle the Mayor’s right hand man and have him do all the messed up stuff like well…I can’t say anymore without spoiling it!

        Right hand man, Priceless!
        By all means don’t say anymore! I haven’t read the comics and am going into this fresh. The only things that I know of the story are tidbits leaked in internet articles and posts and what I’ve googled. Lol.

            I just had a thought! What about Rooker for Two-Face in a live action The Dark Knight Returns film?!

            How awesome would he be in that role?! His role in Mallrats is what I first thought of. He’s such an unbelievably insane sociopathic, narcicist and is seen by his peers as a professional who has it all together. He’d be perfect!
            I know that I’m changing my picks here but what about Sean Young as Selina Kyle? The aging starlet who had a very publicized crack up when she stalked the director to play Catwoman in the Batman sequel. Who better to play the aged villainess in the big screen adaptation of TDKR?!?!?!

            I also like Chrispother Lee as Alfred, SAm Elliot as Gordon and Willem Dafoe as Joker, Elliot Gould as Dr. Wolper, Robert Maillet(body)/Clancy Brown (voicce) as Mutant Leader
            Kurt Russell as Batman!
