Casting Announcements: A.F. Grant & Jimmy Folco

Awesome casting news today, as we premiere not one but two of our redneck zombie performers!

First is up is A.F.Grant, an actor known for playing featured zombies and henchman in a number of films: Zombie Town, Chaos Unlimited, and Surrogates. He was also in the late Anna Nicole Smith's comedy film Illegal Aliens, and has director and co-producer credits on a number of projects. He'll be assuming the role of Daryl in CvsRZ, and we're really excited to have him on the cast.

Next is a newcomer to television acting, Jimmy Folco. Jimmy recently started his acting career with a small part in Backmask, and he's excited to be taking on a larger role with us. Jimmy will be playing Jed. (Fun fact: we originally wanted to borrow a gag from the TV show "Newhart" and call him "the other brother Daryl.")

With these two casting announcements we should also note that we've made our final selections and call backs for principal casting, and as of today the official casting call for Cheerleaders vs. Redneck Zombies is closed. However, do keep checking here as we may need stand-ins and extras in the future. We will also need additional talent if we proceed as a series after the pilot.
