Being that he's dealt with enough zombies -- known as "walkers" and "biters" -- on AMC's smash hit series "The Walking Dead," actor Dallas Roberts says he will pass on coming to Minnesota to the next Twin Cities Zombie Pub Crawl.
Roberts, who plays Milton Mamet, the vulnerable scientist assistant to The Governor (David Morrisey) on "The Walking Dead," told me in an interview Monday that it's unlikely you'll ever see him or his alter ego -- living or (walking) dead -- taking part in what has become a huge cultural event.
"Milton would basically find just a dark, safe place and lock himself in it," Roberts said, laughing.
Zombies aside, Roberts said he loves Twin Cities area and at one point had a very personal connection.
"I dated a girl from Minnesota for quite a while, so I learned to operate a snowblower," Roberts said with a laugh. "I've spent some time there and also have been to First Avenue. I drive across the country relatively frequently, and that's my northern route, through Minneapolis and St. Paul."
Since Milton survived the most recent episode of "The Walking Dead" (he wasn't featured in Sunday night's episode and his future didn't look too bright at the conclusion of the one before it), Roberts says you will definitely see him in the season finale of the show Sunday night.
For people unfamiliar with the show, Milton, The Governor and several others are holed up in the age of the zombie apocalypse in the town of Woodbury.
But before people in the Twin Cities suburb start looking over their shoulders for walkers, it's important to note that Woodbury just happens to be a fictional town in Georgia, where the show is set.
