    Who else is waiting for this hunk of good-looking to ninja his way onto our TV screens?

    Jesus, I can't wait! I just hope they give him all the attention he deserves keeping his TV version very close to the comic books. Yes, please.

    I am more than ready. Jesus is one of my comic faves(and I'm hoping they don't screw him up/over) Also I love that Tom's been interacting with fans on twitter since it was officially announced he was cast. Including retweeting my joke about the fact that him and Andy have previously worked together in an adaptation of Wuthering Heights. "And it has been confirmed. Now I can joke that Rick was Jesus' uncle in 19th century Yorkshire" I'm always pleased when the show casts good apples.

    My hope is that Tom and Andy have a naturally good chemistry that translates to screen. I want Rick and Jesus to be BFFs.

    That's my dream. My nightmare is that Jesus gets the Abe treatment and Rick barely acknowledges his existence because the writers think he should only have one friend....

    While I"m not a GN reader, my understanding is that Jesus is a fan favorite and I believe Kirkman has great affection for him as well. My hope is that 6.10 is the passing of the torch from Rickyl to Risus. Or is it Resus? lol.....

    Andy and Tom worked together on a version of Wuthering Heights years ago so I'm sure they will have great chemistry together.

    Resus sounds like Reese's, they'd be the best peanut butter cup.

    I know he only gave a brief blurb on what Jesus is like as a character but it was enough to give me hope(I should know better) that they haven't and won't screw him up.

    Tom wears t-shirts very very well and I love that he is training!

    Did you read that he took gymnastics as a kid? Can't wait to see his skills in action!
