Let's show the love for the phenomenal Lennie James!
I love the title of this thread!
Some gorgeous photos from The Guardian
When I first heard his real accent, I was shocked. I had no idea. He does the small town country accent perfectly.
So was I.
I found out when I bought the first season on blu-ray.
I was surprised. His accent for Morgan is so good.
Yes I have little crush on him from since I saw him in the tv show Jericho. He's so talented and I love his smile. His British accent is lovely. I so glad I get to see him in another America show.
I've never watched the show Jericho, but I've heard of it though. And most likely seen clips somewhere. Maybe that's where I've Sen him before. I know when I first started watching TWD About a month ago, I'm like, he looks really familiar. I didn't bother to check. Just chalked it up to he has a familiar looking face.
Lennie as Sol in the movie Snatch ... I saw this flick a few years before I got into TWD, so I kinda geeked out when I saw him on the show.
Snatch is one of my favorite movies.
I haven't seen it. But I know Guy Ritchie directed, and Brad Pitt starred in it. Lol I looked him up. He's in the movie, Colombiana starring Zoe Saldana, which the DVD is sitting on my table still waiting to be watched. Lol He's also a screenwriter and playwright too. We have some talented people in the TWD cast.
I really like Morgan. The scene in "Clear" and the walkie talkie convo still gives me chills. During that last walking scene to Terminus and Morgan revealed himself I was screaming. I feel like his Carol storylines are below him. He's better than that mess. He is a phenomal actor, the best on the show next to Andy. In S7 I want some story of him that doesn't involve Carol. If Gimple wants that Emmy he needs to be focusing on Lennie and let go of the Carol obsession.
I was one of those super-pissed folks that didn't want Jericho to be cancelled. I remember how passionate the fans were about it, sending tons of boxes of peanuts to network offices. lol It actually came back on air briefly, just to get cancelled again for the second and final time.
But yeah, I've been a huge fan of this guy since I first saw him in Jericho, so I look forward to seeing more of him on TWD and in other projects. I didn't know he was a talented and accomplished writer, as well. Just learned that recently, but no big surprise.
Also, I loved the pictures of Danai and him on the red carpet at MSG last year. We don't really see his interaction with the rest of the cast, but it appeared that he could possibly have a good relationship with Danai outside of the show. I would love to hear his thoughts on Rick taking his comic bae.
I'd love to hear his thoughts too.
Love the photos! They look really good together.
I love this thread, I can't believe I had seen this man in several movies and didn't know who he was until The Walking Dead. I mean I watched the Prisoner and saw Lennie James in the credits but other films I had seen his performance in them was just wow and impressive. I have heard of the show Jericho, now I have to get it on DVD and binge watch it.
Oh, I'm just melting a little bit at all the pics of the man on this thread so many nice pics.
Lennie is so amazing
Morgan is too
New interview here, he mostly talks about Carol and Daryl. I don't know why though.
