Fans of “The Walking Dead” are in for a particular treat, as, in addition to Reedus, numerous other stars of the smash hit series will attend the show. Michael Cudlitz, who plays “Sgt. Abraham Ford,” Sarah Wayne Callies (“Lori Grimes”), Steven Yeun (“Glenn Rhee”), Josh McDermitt (“Dr. Eugene Porter”), Michael Rooker (“Merle Dixon”) and Scott Wilson (“Herschel Greene”) are all scheduled.

“Flash Vs. Arrow” is coming to The CW on December 2, and filming the episode, which features a fight between the two heroes, provided a new challenge for Stephen Amell.
The “Arrow” star had to do quite a bit of slow motion acting for the big face off against Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen/The Flash, which occurs in the first episode (on “The Flash”) of the two-night crossover event.
“There are a couple of different things when we’re fighting in ‘The Flash’ world that we do that we never do on ‘Arrow,'” Stephen told Access Hollywood on the black carpet at the special fan screening of the two episodes at The Crest Theatre in Westwood, Calif., on Saturday night.
“We never do slo-mo in our fights with very, very, very rare exceptions and there are a couple of instances where I’m fighting Grant, but I’m fighting a digi-double, so I’m fighting nothing,” he continued. “So it’s a – I’m just glad that I’m comfortable in my own skin and I once played a hooker [on ‘Hung’] and was naked all the time, so nothing embarrasses me.”
Stephen said he had some enjoyable moments filming the sequence, where he got to see The Arrow’s former fanboy in a new light.
“It was actually fun when — we shoot a couple of scenes where Grant really gets in my face and Oliver is just standing there and he is just a blank canvas, and Grant’s flailing around and stuff like that and I loved it,” Stephen said. “I thought he did really well.”
“Flash Vs. Arrow” airs December 2 at 8/7c on The CW. The second night of the crossover event, titled “The Brave and The Bold” takes place on “Arrow,” airing December 3 at 8/7c on The CW.
The episode will be called ‘Canaries.’
The return date for the show is January 21st after it goes on break.

The man who plays Oliver Queen on Arrow says the best episodes in the show’s two-plus season history are coming up soon.
Stephen Amell joined the Arrow After Show on theStream.tv Wednesday night to talk about this week’s new episode, “Guilty,” as well as what’s coming down the road. While he proved a master at staying away from spoilers, he didn’t hide his enthusiasm for a couple of episodes that are coming up soon.
