Have you ever heard of the one true Punisher AKA Thomas Jane? Ok, I added the first part to his name and it’s totally opinion but yes, Thomas Jane played the best Punisher in the best movie about the Punisher to date. The one with John Travolta mailing it in from far, far away and the Johnny Cash dude with the guitar. Not the Punisher where the guy doesn’t speak or the one from the 80’s with just for men hair dye Ivan Drago.
From dealing with the apocalypse in The Mist to becoming a male prostitute to pay his bills in Hung he’s always been underrated. He can play a great everyman/badass who will mess sh*t up but only if he absolutely has to. Sounds perfect for a show like The Walking Dead.
It was almost so. The great Frank Darabont who originally ran the show had shopped Dead to HBO with Thomas Jane in mind to play the main dude himself Rick Grimes.
I have no qualms with Andrew Lincoln who ended up nabbing the role. He does a great job. But personally I’d just be lying to your faces right now if I told you that I didn’t think the show would have been totally different with Thomas Jane in the lead. He would have added somehow a more comic book feel to the show which after all is based on a comic book. Not to mention the guy can go from testosterone fueled berzerko mode right into teary eyed dad if needed. Also, did you see the ending to The Mist?
We are also missing a huge point here…..HBO. Could you have imagined The Walking Dead on HBO? Well it doesn’t take that weird naked Oracle lady from 300 to figure it out. Lots more blood. Lots more sex. I mean, the zombie’s would have been banging eachother. That’s the HBO way. Whether or not that’s a good thing is a matter of pure personal opinion. (Not the zombie sex part thats just wierd)
Again I think Andrew Lincoln has done a great job and I’m just being honest. Truthfully it’s the other guy about to play the Punisher on Netflix that I still don’t like. I can’t get over the fact that Jon Bernthal’s character slept with his bro’s wife after he “died”. Yes, I know it’s just a TV show. Yes, I still hate Jon Bernthal for it. Sorry. Not sorry. Do you fine folks think The Walking Dead would have been better with Jane and HBO? Keep your eye to GeekNation for more stories about zombie sex.
