Why not? – but doesn’t believe it’ll happen any time soon: “I don’t think Barbara [Broccoli, the James Bond producer] would allow a gay Bond to happen in her lifetime.

• Steven Yeun, Glen on The Walking Dead, explains his take on season six to “I think last year was a very good indicator of where we’re headed. We’re seeing everybody as who they are now. You’ve found them grizzled. You’ve found them completely broken and shattered and they’ve all witnessed and experienced terrible things. And so you get to see them there. We wear it on our face. We wear it on our body. To see where we’ve evolved to is awesome. So season six is that, is showing how much has been taken away from us. The end goal is to find some semblance of life that we lost before. I think you’re going to see some deeply emotional character story and you’re also going to see, as we always do, some crazy-ass shit.”

• Steven Knight has given an update on World War Z 2 to Collider revealing that he’s turned in the latest draft of the screenplay. “I was approached with the idea of, ‘How do we move this along?’ so how could I resist?”
