Following Sunday's new episode of The Walking Dead, Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick will have a full house to recap the zombie drama.
On Sunday's Talking Dead, which starts at 10:13 pm ET due to a slightly extended Walking Dead episode, Hardwick will be joined by Steven Ogg, Desus Nice, and Lisa Edelstein.
Ogg joined The Walking Dead late in its sixth season, playing Negan's right-hand man Simon. He would emerge as a fan-favorite character quickly throughout Season 7, as the extravagant acting choices (which many recall from his Trevor Phillips role in Grand Theft Auto V) made Simon one of the most fun and unpredictable characters on the screen.
Desus Nice, real name Daniel Baker, is a comedian. Desus' prominence in the comedy space began following Complex TV's Desus vs. Mero, which was a 46-episode podcast beginning in 2013. He now co-hosts Viceland's Desus & Mero talk show.
Edelstein is best known for her role in Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce, with dozens more credits to her name, and has previously appeared on an episode of Talking Dead following a Fear the Walking Dead episode.
The Walking Dead Episode 8x05 is titled, "The Big Scary U." The official synopsis for The Big Scary U reads, "With war raging all around him, we get a close look at Negan and the lives of the Saviors during the conflict through a familiar set of eyes."
The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9 pm ET on AMC. For complete coverage and insider info all season long, follow @BrandonDavisBD on Twitter.
