The Wire is one of the most respected series in cable television history, known for its complex characters on both sides of the Baltimore drug game. The Walking Dead is one of the most popular television series in cable television history, known for the fact that it’s a television show about zombies and zombies rule. Fans of both shows expressed a collective “OH SNAP!” last season on The Walking Dead with the appearance of Tyreese played by Chad Coleman who had previously played the ex-con with a heart of gold Dennis “Cutty” Wise on The Wire. Now the word is out that actor Larry Gilliard, Jr. who played The Wire’s ill-fated drug dealer D’Angelo “D” Barksdale is playing Bob Stookey on season 4 of The Walking Dead. That got us thinking of what other Wire characters we’d love to see on The Walking Dead’s cruel new world. Who would rise to the occasion and put down walkers and who would end up zombie meat with the quickness? Here are 10 Characters From The Wire We’d Like To See On The Walking Dead.

Vampire Academy BFFs Zoey Deutch, Lucy Fry Share Tales Of Burnt Cookies And Lissa-Vision

Frankly, I really didn’t need to host yesterday’s Very VH1 Spreecast with Zoey Deutch and Lucy Fry, the stars of next year’s Vampire Academy.

Frankly, I really didn’t need to host yesterday’s Very VH1 Spreecast with Zoey Deutch and Lucy Fry, the stars of next year’s Vampire Academy. It was all about watching the co-stars-turned-BFFs giggle with each other, pretend to be office drones at my boss’ desk, and say hi to their fans across the globe. But I’m selfish, and I really did want to join in on their fun, so every once in a while I got to ask a question of the girls who play a vampire princess and her vampire-hybrid best friend and bodyguard-in-training. The pair were at their most adorable when talking about their own friendship — starting with their tale of meeting at the audition, and how Zoey had to play guardian right away and drive Lucy home.

“When we found out we got the parts, we started hanging out a lot before we went to London,” Lucy told us.

“I burnt cookies that she was making!” Zoey put in.

“We got through it,” Lucy continued. Like her character, Lissa, she definitely seems to be the more diplomatic of the two. The movie, based on Richelle Mead’s novels of the same title, was written by Heathers screenwriter Daniel Waters and directed by his brother, Mean Girls director Mark Waters, and it shot on an appropriately picturesque campus in England.

While there’s plenty of action, high school mean-girl high jinks and romance in the book and movie, both actresses said they were drawn to it because of the value the story places on female friendships.

“That’s one of the messages that I love about this film, is that it’s sending such a nice idea to young girls that you should prioritize your best friends before boys,” Zoey said.

Unlike Rose and Lissa, fortunately, the pair do not share a psychic bond. But I asked how that bond — Rose can see the world through Lissa’s eyes every once in a while, and not always by choice — will be portrayed onscreen.

“We shot it specifically calling it ‘Lissa-vision,’ ” Lucy explained. “When I was doing a scene that Rose was looking into, they would do some shots with the camera in my perspective, and I think that Mark’s going to blur it a little bit. … Originally, there were going to be weird contacts, but they didn’t really work.”

Oh, thank goodness for that.

“You’re going to have to watch and see, folks!” Zoey added. Yes, we will!

Tom Hanks is getting rave reviews for his performance in Captain Phillips (out today).

Tom Hanks is getting rave reviews for his performance in Captain Phillips (out today). It’s familiar territory for the two-time Oscar winner, but after recent offerings like Cloud Atlas, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, and Larry Crowne underperformed, we began to worry about his status inside Hollywood’s golden circle. With Phillips and the forthcoming Saving Mr. Banks (he plays Walt Disney!), Hanks is poised to once again be a mainstay come awards season–and we couldn’t be happier. Nobody hits a promo circuit like Hanx.

In addition to his fine acting, Hanks continues to be one of the most adorable, endearing people in the biz. From his contributions to the internet, to his continued support for his longtime love (and aspiring rapper of a son), Hanks is the one actor we’d want to play our father in the hypothetical movie about our lives. If you’ve been sleeping on Mindy Kaling‘s rom com king, check out five reasons why Hanks is still the best.

1. He Embraces Social Media

In a pool of endless celebrity self-promotion, Hanks (or “Hanx,” as he prefers to go by online) has made himself a must-follow in the three-and-a-half-years since he joined the bluebird. Pairing self-awareness with positive punctuation, the actor provides insightful commentary about the weirdness of this business we call show. There’s also observations about the world around him and personal revelations that will go on to make headlines–but it all has that cheery, “Hanx” spin.

Even his biography is delightfully on point: “Sometimes I’m in pretty good shape, other times I’m not. Hey, you gotta live, you know?” Oh, we know, Tom. We know.
