According to Uproxx The Walking Dead’s creator, Frank Darabont, originally had another actor in mind for the lead character Rick Grimes. Thomas Jane. He was ‘The Punisher’ and also starred in HBO’s ‘Hung’. He’s a good actor and has been working for many years but can you imagine anyone other then Andrew Lincoln as Rick? It would be a very different show. Darabont originally shopped the series to HBO. It’s crazy to think how differently TWD could have turned out.
