Former Power Ranger Rose McIver To Star In The C.W.’s ‘iZombie’ Pilot

iZombie Yellow Ranger
Toei/DC Comics

Look, I haven't cleared my TV-watching schedule to enough to catch Once Upon a Time or Masters of Sex, but if there's one thing I've watched it's the 2009 Power Rangers R.P.M. So I can say with some degree of certainty that The CW's upcoming iZombie pilot starring former R.P.M. Yellow Ranger Rose McIver could perform quite capably as Olivia “Liv” Moore (*ba-dump!) on the Rob Thomas-produced drama that sounds almost nothing like the Vertigo Comic by Chris Roberson and Mike Allred -- that is, if this show includes martial arts and mecha.

The C.W.’s ‘iZombie’ Casts Star, Sounds Almost Nothing Like The Vertigo Comic

Liv Eats Brains izombie

Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero's TV adaptation of the Vertigo comic iZombie has made its first casting choices, including the male lead.

That role, a police detective named Clive (a character who wasn't in the comic), has gone to Malcolm Goodwin, who starred in the A & E series Breakout Kings. Alexandra Krosney of the sitcom Last Man Standing and Alias' David Anders have also been cast as female lead Liv's best friend, Peyton, and the chief antagonist, Blaine, respectively.

If none of those names look familiar, it's because the TV version of iZombie is shaping up to be vastly different from the Chris Roberson and Mike Allred-created comic that inspired it. Even the lead character's name has apparently changed from Gwen to Liv.

‘iZombie’ Gets A Pilot Pickup At The CW

iZombie

The TV adaptation of writer Chris Roberson and artist Mike Allred's Vertigo Comics series iZombie is one step closer to being a series, after news broke Wednesday that the show has gotten the green-light for a pilot at The CW.

The pilot will still be written by Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas and co-writer Diane Ruggerio, and it'll be a little different from the comic.

‘Veronica Mars’ Creator Rob Thomas To Helm ‘iZombie’ Series For The CW

iZombie

Fresh off the fan-funded Veronica Mars movie, series creator Rob Thomas is teaming up with writer Diane Ruggerio to write the pilot for a show based on the Vertigo comic iZombie by Chris Roberson and Mike Allred.

The series is in development at the CW, as many TV projects based on DC properties are. Like the comic, the show would follow the exploits of a zombie med student named Gwen who has to eat brains to keep her human appearance.

Parting Shot: Chris Roberson Fired from ‘Fairest’ for His Statements about DC’s Ethics

chris-roberson-1334959119

Writer Chris Roberson announced yesterday that he would seek no further work at DC Comics because of his concerns about the company's treatment of creators, though he intended to complete his planned work on the Fables spinoff Fairest. The professional fallout for his criticism of the publisher's ethics appears to have been swift, as Roberson posted
