Will The Walking Dead's Jon Bernthal join the L.A. Noir series?

Jan. 23, 2012by: Niki Stephens

I could easily spend this entire article discussing the true douchebaggery of Shane Walsh from THE WALKING DEAD (comic vs. series). Unfortunately, that would majorly derail this article and cause me to spit out spoilers.

Jon Bernthal who plays scumbag Shane is being eyed for Frank Darabont's upcoming L.A. NOIR series on TNT. According to sources, talks have only just begun and there's no telling if it will actually pan out. This would reunite Bernthal and Darabont if it came to fruition.

If Bernthal if cast then he will take on the role of, "Joe Teague, the Los Angeles cop at the center of the show that examines corruption in the LAPD and ties between police and underworld figures in the 1940s and '50s." Darabont wrote the script, which was based on the book by John Buntin, "L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of Americas Most Seductive City".

The actor recently wrapped on the action-thriller SNITCH, opposite Dwayne Johnson and Susan Sarandon.

I've read every single WD comic book. I dont need to state the obvious of peoples worries. All I can mention is if it does happen I think Berthal would be great in L.A. Noir. As brdman13 said. Berthal was the most interesting character in WD. From what I've read, Frank Darabont was screwed. AMC or the Producers at the network can go fuck themselves.

I guess this isn't based on the game of the same name?

Avoiding any spoilers...

...as I haven't read the comics, but I quite like Shane's character. I think he's a bit misunderstood, yes tapping his BFF's wife a few hours after abandoning his BFF to the hoards of the undead was a bit of a douche thing to do, but he's a man of action and he makes the show interesting and keeps the tension up in the group. I hope he's around for a while yet...

No More walking dead?

I hope this doesn't mean he's getting ready to leave The Walking Dead, Shane is definitely the most interesting character on the show

SPOILER ALERT.....








Just being careful...but in the comics, Shane is dead by the end of the first book, so I've been waiting for that to happen in the tv show.

Hollywood Reporter and Variety did it too. Oh well. It's just the nature of the internet these days. Sorry.

JoBlo . . . what am I gonna do with you?

Hey guys, every single site I've been to today has a headline that says "Actor from Walking Dead joining LA Noir" because it would constitute a MAJOR SPOILER to reveal the name of that actor! I've read the comics. I know what happens to Shane, but the fact that he's still alive in season 2 would have made it a surprise. Not any more, I guess.

I guess with this news that his character Shane may potentially die this season on The Walking Dead? I mean I know what happens to him in the [link] [link] FUCK IT....Shane gets shot by Rick's son. The dude is tied for my favorite character alongside Rick and Daryl, but if he had to die then it would be nice seeing him in another show that original Walking Dead creator created.
