The long awaited crossover between The Walking Dead and spinoff Fear The Walking Dead will see Lennie James’ Morgan Jones character bridging the stories between the two series and moving to the latter.
This doesn’t mean that the Morgan character will be leaving TWD, even as James prepares to start filming on FearTWD tomorrow morning in Austin, Texas – at least not right away. “Even though Morgan is going to be featured on Fear, he has a lot of story left on The Walking Dead,” said showrunner Scott M. Gimple in a statement read out on Talking Dead on Sunday. “Morgan’s arch on The Walking Dead Season 8 positioned him for the story on Fear,” the EP added. “It was also important to see Fear‘s world and characters through new yet familiar eyes.” – Deadline
Morgan Joins Fear The Walking Dead
If you have 11 whole minutes, the above video goes in depth on the move to have Morgan crossover to Fear TWD. If you don’t, that’s why I’m here. On last night’s Talking Dead Lennie James (who plays Morgan) announced he will be filming season four of Fear TWD today. Now while some websites are upset about the decision, this is definitely a sign of the times.
Lennie James could not have shown up on the set of Fear TWD without someone getting a picture of him. I have to believe producers knew this and wanted to get this news out there on their own terms. While this may be a spoiler on Morgan’s fate for this season of TWD, the news would have leaked either way.
The decision to make Morgan the character to cross over can be debated all day, but once again, filming HASN’T EVEN STARTED YET. I’m willing to see how this all plays out before casting a ton of judgment. My hope is that the Fear TWD timeline lines up with The Walking Dead between seasons 1-3, which is when Morgan went from mild mannered father to zombie hunter.
Morgan (and pretty much every other character) has always been more interesting when he puts inner conflict aside and decides to be an actual human being living in a zombie apocalypse and turn into a murder machine. The Morgan that learned to make cheese and twirl a stick doesn’t interest me, so if we get crazy CLEAR Morgan, I’m down.
I also don’t think that Fear TWD is going to make Morgan the only crossover character, as they have too deep a roster of characters we care about from The Walking Dead to only feature Morgan. Abraham? Dale? SHANE? Pretty much anyone but Andrea is OK with me. The possibilities are endless, and I’m excited to see where they go from here.

Tucker Carlson Doesn’t Think Falling Alseep While Driving and Causing a Death is Reckless Driving…Wait What?
“I’m not trying to take anything away from the tragedy of this,” Carlson replied. “But 10 years in jail for falling asleep? It strikes me as very different from taking drugs, drinking. Has that ever happened? Has anybody ever actually gone to jail for falling asleep?”
“For falling asleep and causing a death?” Schwartz asked. “Absolutely.”
“But, I mean sometimes people — and I’m not defending anyone here,” Carlson continued. “I’m really struck by the idea that someone who falls asleep — which is something that everybody does every day, not necessarily considered an act of recklessness — does it unintentionally, nods off is a criminal.” – UPROXX
The only good thing about this interview is that Fox News had the brains to put an actual lawyer on the air to dispute everything this moron Tucker Carlson was saying. Falling asleep while driving a vehicle, not to mention a semi truck, might as well be the exact definition of reckless driving. There’s a reason most people fall asleep in a bed or on a couch: because they’re laying down not doing anything. like say, driving a car. Obviously this wasn’t intentional by the truck driver, but if you operate a vehicle and fall asleep and that act kills someone then you go to jail. In Tucker Carlson’s world I guess we’d just chalk it up a loss because everyone falls asleep. That’s like saying its OK to go out naked in public because everybody, every day, is naked at some point. But you can’t just go around hanging dong and expect not be picked up for it. Just like you can’t drive a semi truck and decide it’s nap time. Go back to Waterloo, Tucker.
Captain Morgan Learned the Hard Way That Americans Will Literally Eat or Drink Taco Flavored Anything

I love the effort here on Captain Morgan’s part, but when you bring tacos into the mix you’re just over matched. We will literally eat or drink anything with the word taco in it. It doesn’t even have to taste like tacos. You just have to put the word in there and people will go for it. I really wouldn’t be surprised if people start an uproar because this DOESN’T exist. In the 24 hours it took to come out as a joke I bet millions of people planned Captain Morgan taco party’s this weekend. Part of me wants to say its cool but a much larger part of me thinks its disturbing. But then that small part of me eats a taco and everything makes sense again. Better luck next year, Captain.
Source – Justin Bieber is in trouble – again.
The pop star was arrested early Thursday for drag racing and DUI in Miami Beach, police confirmed on Twitter. Police say R&B artist Khalil was also arrested.
Bieber was charged with resisting arrest and had consumed alcohol and marijuna, reports AP.
Bieber, 19, was in a rented yellow Lamborghini.
A while ago I wrote about the slow and steady downfall that Justin Bieber was going through. Now before I get started here, I want it to be clear that I could care less if this guy fails. He’s 19 and he’s already made more money than me, slept with more girls and is one of the most recognizable people on the planet. I’m just here to call a spade a spade. You want to know why Justin Bieber is going to fail? Because he lacks the one thing that every famous person had who fucked up and got their life back together: resiliency. He got discovered on YouTube by Usher, made a cute popsy song that attracted literally the easiest audience to attract (young girls) and got a boatload of fame and fortune thrown in his face. Now that the shit is hitting the fan, he wants his bodyguards and inner circle to make everything go away like it’s a bad dream. Unfortunately for him, it’s real life.
Do you ever wonder why so many child actors/musicians have fucked up lives? Because a 16, 17, 18, 19 year old shouldn’t be living in Los Angeles or Hollywood where the vices outnumber pretty much anything good or moral you’re trying to accomplish. That’s why it’s always great to see someone like Justin Timberlake, who got famous young (17 when NSync started taking off), but kept his head above water and turned into an other worldly talent. DUI’s are becoming so common for celebrities that Bieber may get off the hook for this one, go back to making his music for teenage girls, and have a good career. But if I were a betting man, I’d say this is just the beginning of something bad.
Back to the resiliency angle. Does Justin Bieber strike you as someone who deals with animosity well? The same kid who had his bodyguards carry him up the Great Wall of China doesn’t seem like he’s taking the backlash in stride. Again, his bread and butter IS MAKING SONGS FOR TEENAGE GIRLS. Even at the peak of his fame, no one took this guy seriously. So now that everything is going wrong, who does he lean on to get his shit right? If I had cameras in my face 24/7 while websites like TMZ were dissecting my every move, I’d probably lose my mind too. In a way, its kind of sad to see a 19 year old with the world by the balls just be such an idiot and an asshole. Between the constant bad press, on and off retirement and the general dismay people my age or older have for him, it’s going to be a long road back to the top. Like I said, I’m not rooting for him to fail, but at this point, I don’t see any other outcome.
That’s as good a Justin Bieber impression as you’ll ever see. Cherry on the ice cream was the fact that she actually looked like Bieber. There’s talent, and then there’s Kate McKinnon. FYI, the entire Drake hosted episode of SNL was awesome. Drake just got his newest and most deranged fan.
I learned a long time ago that unless I want my kids physical peak to be an outfielder in men’s league softball I’d have to marry someone with some athletic ability. Alex Morgan was always on the top of that list. She’s a bonafide 10, and I looked forward to all the ketchup fights we were going to have together. Then she goes and gets engaged and completely pulls the rug out from under me. Coming out of left field with this longtime boyfriend/engagement crap. I guess my dreams of marrying an Olympic athlete will have to be put on hold a bit longer. Oh and Servando, if that is your real name, I have a little message for you..
