AMC's The Walking Dead: Casting Choices

As far as I know there has been no announcement on when AMC's adaptation of Robert Kirkman's comic book series The Walking Dead will hit the air. But what we do have are 10 (almost 11!) trade paperbacks of the series thus far, which make for some really good reading for those uninitiated (including myself, who has just been discovering it).

But... to get the ball rolling on some discussion before AMC makes an announcement, I'd like to put the question out there:

Who would you like to see cast in The Walking Dead TV series?

My only for-sure choice after reading the first two trade paperbacks would be Thomas Jane as the lead character, Rick Grimes. Jane starred in director Frank Darabont's The Mist, so there's surely a working relationship there. (Darabont is a writer and executive producer for the TV series).

So, what do you think? Comment here or let your thoughts be heard on the KryptonSite Forum.
