Casting Rumor: JB up for The Walking Dead? (Did we mention this is a RUMOR?)

This is only a rumor at this point - I did say that, right? :) But the Big Shiny Robot gang have faith in their sources. And they do point out that is their most reliable source which states that Jamie is in the running for the lead role in Frank Darabont's TV adaptation of Robert Kirkman's epic comic series The Walking Dead. (For anyone who hasn't been following this story, he's developing it at AMC with Gale-Anne Hurd.)

For those unfamiliar with The Walking Dead, here's the summary:

The Walking Dead is centered on Rick Grimes, a small-town police officer from Cynthiana, Kentucky, his family, and a number of other survivors who have banded together in order to survive after the world is overrun with zombies. As the series progresses, the characters become more developed, and their personalities shift under the stress of a zombie apocalypse. Fighting growing despair — and sometimes each other — the group searches for a secure location which they can finally call home.
