I like their names so much that I decided to put them in the title of this page, especially since their names don’t get mentioned for several pages to come. Murdo’s young and Grady’s old! This is the first scene at the school in South Dakota, with two of the survivors carrying a dead zombie (and not just ANY dead zombie — and he may not actually be “dead”) towards a dumpster (spoiler for the next page, you’ll see a DUMPSTER!).
Murdo’s the main sniper who keeps watch from the tower rooms of the school building and takes out the small groups of approaching zombies from a distance with head shots. He used to be a Marine and he knows his stuff. Grady’s just the unlucky guy who had to help Murdo carry the dead on this particular morning. I played poker with Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes recently, and I’m thinking Jay would be a good option to play Murdo. And if I had to pick a Grady? Hmm . . . John Ratzenberger!
