A ‘Walking Dead’ Star Admits To An ‘Eye-Opening’ Mistake


In the classic The Simpsons episode “The Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie Show,” Doug, the most stereotypical of nerds, is at a meet-and-greet with the voice actors behind his favorite cat, mouse, and outrageous dude of a dog, Homer Simpson and June Bellamy. Rather than praise them for the “thousands of hours of entertainment for free” they’ve given him, he tries to outsmart them. “In episode 2F09,” Doug says, “when Itchy plays Scratchy’s skeleton like a xylophone, he strikes the same rib in succession, yet he produces two clearly different tones. I mean, what are we to believe, that this is a magic xylophone, or something? Ha ha, boy, I really hope somebody got fired for that blunder.”

Chandler Riggs didn’t get fired for one of The Walking Dead‘s biggest (and hilarious) goofs, exactly — his character was just bitten by a zombie.

Carl Grimes, who lost his right eye in season six, was spotted aiming his rifle in a season seven episode… with his eyepatch-covered eye. I know he’s a good shot and all, but still, that’s impressive, even for Rick’s son. And also, as Riggs admitted before last night’s midseason premiere, a mistake on his part.

“After I got my eye shot out, we ended up switching my holster to my left pant leg, and … I had to retrain my left hand to shoot and aim down, and by the time I got to do it with machine guns and assault rifles and stuff I got lazy with it,” Riggs told The Huffington Post. “It felt way too awkward having to put [the guns] on my left shoulder and aim down with my left eye. It was super weird, so I was just like, forget continuity. That’s just ridiculous.”

I respect Carl’s honesty. It’s a shame he died on the way back to his home planet.
