ROOKER CONTENDER FOR EMMY FOR “THE WALKING DEAD”

By Elaine Lamkin

And we thought it would never happen! Michael Rooker, our favorite bad-ass mo-fo, has been submitted by cable channel AMC as a contender for an Emmy as Best Male Guest Actor for his stellar portrayal of redneck, ass-kickin’ Merle Dixon in Frank Darabont’s production of Robert Kirkman’s THE WALKING DEAD. Sure, he’s in the same category of contenders as his “little brother”, Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus), but here’s hoping big brother gets the well-deserved nomination which will be announced July 14th. The awards ceremony will be telecast September 18th. Fingers crossed…

Rooker & TWD producer, Gale Anne Hurd
