Band of Brothers was a stirring series on HBO created by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks in 2001 that re-discovered the history of "Easy" Company, the 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, of the 101st Airborne Division. The story starts in the beginning phases of the company and mixes commentary and video footage of the actual soldiers who were in "Easy" Company and their thoughts and takes you to the end of World War II. The show won multiple Primetime Emmy's and a Golden Globe as well. But one of the real soldiers in the show has a unique local tie.
"Suck. My. Nuts." Those are the iconic last words of Abraham Ford on The Walking Dead, but actor Michael Cudlitz reveals Abe's final one-liner nearly had more color. The exchange happens when Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) lines up Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his pants-pissing group of survivors in the Season 7 premiere, "The Day Will Come When You Won't Be." After Abraham takes a swing from Lucille, Negan's barbwire-wrapped baseball bat, he cracks off one last Abe-ism as Negan bludgeons big "Red" to death before turning the bat on Glenn (Steven Yeun).
Michael Cudlitz played Abraham Ford on The Walking Dead from season four to season seven. Abraham was a character from the comics that Cudlitz did justice to compared to his comic counterpart. His presence on the series is greatly missed. Since his departure from the series Cudlitz has been involved in many great projects. Next, he will star in a film called Unspoken.
ComingSoon is excited to debut the exclusive trailer for Cinedigm’s upcoming action-thriller Red Stone, starring Neal McDonough (Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, Captain America: The First Avenger, Justified) and Michael Cudlitz (The Walking Dead, Band of Brothers, Clarice). The movie will release on December 3, 2021, in select theaters and on Premium VOD and Digital.
Abraham Ford is dead, but the Michael Cudlitz and Josh McDermitt bromance lives on. Cudlitz, who played cigar-chomping military man Abraham from Seasons 4 through 7 of The Walking Dead, made his directorial debut behind the camera of a Season 9 episode and helmed another two in Season 10. The Abraham actor will return as director on at least one episode of The Walking Dead's expanded Final Season, where McDermitt's Eugene is on the road with Ezekiel (Khary Payton), Yumiko (Eleanor Matsuura), and Princess (Paola Lazaro) as the newest residents of the Commonwealth.
