THE WALKING DEAD

Following last night's episode of "The Walking Dead," EW.com has posted an interview with showrunner Glen Mazzara about the new developments and the [SPOILER] death of Axel[/SPOILER].

"That was a really tough choice because we had to have the Governor exact some revenge," Mazzara told EW. "If he just shot up the prison without resulting in someone’s death it would have looked completely impotent. So now you start looking at characters and which character is going to go. And we evaluated almost every character -- is it time to kill this character or that character? Unfortunately, the axe fell [SPOILER]Axel’s way. It was tough because there may have been more story with him. I think we were just finding that character. I loved what he added.[/SPOILER] It was just that someone had to go and that was a really, really tough choice. That was something that I wrestled with almost more than say, Lori, because I knew we were getting story out of Lori’s death. So this was a different kind of death that was tied into the existing story but it didn’t prompt further story. I did really feel that loss. That was a tough one. I wish…. I didn’t see another way out of it."

Here's a sneak peek at next week's episode, "I Ain't A Judas."

STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS

The Huffington Post spoke with Zachary Quinto about his interpretation of Mr. Spock in J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek Into Darkness."

"It's definitely my own interpretation, Leonard [Nimoy] and I obviously spent time working together on the first film and became very good friends and are still very close and speak of the character from time to time," Quinto told The Huffington Post. "He was very clear about wanting to hand it [the character of Spock] to somebody that he could trust and that would respect the character the same way that he did. We are very different people and we come at the experience from very different perspectives and invariably it is going to be unique to me even though it is a character he created. I think J.J. really supported that as well, he wanted all of us to bring our own points of view and perspectives to the characters we are recreating. I think all of us have done that and I think that now that we are into our second film the thing that was most important to all of us was maintaining our sense of personal integrity and personal relationships to the characters we set."
