BABEWATCH: The Walking Dead‘s Glenn, aka The Last Asian Man Standing In The Zombie-pocalypse

November 9th, 2010 | 6 comments | Posted by Jen


Name: Glenn

Age: Twenty-something

Hails from: Atlanta

Occupation: Pizza delivery boy (pre-Zombie-pocalypse)

This is how deep in I get with zombie stories: during the cold open of episode 2 of The Walking Dead, which aired Sunday, when the sheriff’s deputy was trapped in the tank, counting how many bullets he had in his 9mm clip, I was thinking to myself, “Note to self: acquire better gun skills in order to increase chances of surviving the zombie-pocalypse. Also: acquire more canned goods,” because, you know, five minutes into a TV show about undead flesh-eating creatures, I’m thinking, OF COURSE THIS SHIT IS REAL.

So.

By my own apocalogic, Glenn–played by actor Steven Yeun–is a catch. He presumably knows how to fire a gun, since he’s entrusted with one of the Atlanta survivor group’s few firearms. So there’s that. He’s also funny, in an ironic, wiseass, slacker kinda way, a team player–risking his life twice in episode 2 for his fellow survivors–brave enough to walk among zombies and hang their putrid guts around his neck, and he knows his way around a muscle car.

In the rare event that you had some down time in the zombie-pocalypse, you could imagine a date with Glenn involving jokes, a fast drive to somewhere cool and deserted–An old drive-in? A swimming hole in the woods?–and some serious, chivalrous zombie-slaying on Glenn’s part when a bloodthirsty walker jumps outta nowhere at the end of the night, eyeing your jugular like a piece of turkey jerky, just as you and Glenn are about to swap spit.

Sounds pretty fun, right?

Like I said, OF COURSE THIS SHIT IS REAL.

    I really wanted to check out Steve Yeun’s improv show tonight, but my enormous unpopularity means I have no traveling companions. It just wasn’t meant to be.

  2. isaacakira says:

    He is not the last Asian stading. In Japan, they fight zombies too. Google Big Tits Zombies: Hot Spring Zombie Vs. Strippers and Hightschool of Dead.

    @isaacakira “Big Tits Zombies: Hot Spring Zombie vs. Strippers” etc. sounds like the key to Search Engine Optimization.

    “Big Tits Zombies: Hot Spring Zombie vs. Strippers”…that would not happen to be that film with Sora Aoi would it? Not that I would know who Sora Aoi is…*not suspicious

  6. isaacakira says:

    @rockmanj I knew Sora Aoi because I she was in Japanese drama, back in 2005. I used to watch this drama and didn’t know about her previous career. And I just discovered after my girlfriend in that time told so (yeah, she was a Aoi fan).
