RICHMOND, Va. — When a new series in the “The Walking Dead” franchise begins filming this summer, it will be filled with local talent. The show is now looking for extras to fill scenes and if previous versions of “The Walking Dead” are any indication — those scenes will be filled with the undead.

Filming is scheduled from July through November 2019, according to Kendall Cooper Casting.

This new story, from Scott M. Gimple and Matt Negrete, who will serve as showrunner, will feature two young female protagonists and “focus on the first generation to come-of-age in the apocalypse as we know it,” according to a release. “Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever.”

“Production is seeking people of all ethnicities, ages, genders, and types to play various characters throughout the series,” the casting company wrote. “Specifically seeking actors with a background in movement or dance, with open availability and a flexible schedule.”

Mysterious explosion in German cornfield was probably a WWII bomb

Residents of Ahlbach, Germany, were mostly asleep at about 4 a.m. Sunday when they were jolted by a sudden blast.

Something seemed to have exploded, large enough to feel like an earthquake, and a massive crater in a cornfield was all that remained.

Police were sent to inspect the hole, which measured 33 feet wide and 13 feet deep, they said.

Was it a World War II bomb? At first, officials weren’t sure. But after a day studying the crater, they said it “almost certainly” was a 550-pound dud.

“With the former railway depot, we were quite a bomb target at the end of the Second World War,” city spokesman Johannes Laubach told the German news website Hessenschau. “We can be glad that the farmer was not in the field.”

Undiscovered bombs can often explode without outside forces acting on them, experts say, as their detonators decompose over time.

Old bombs are not uncommon finds in Germany and elsewhere, with hundreds found each year.

Police defused an unexploded World War II bomb weighing 1,100 pounds in Berlin in April 2018, CNN reported at the time.

In September, a 3,000-pound bomb discovered in Frankfurt caused nearly 60,000 people to be evacuated while experts defused it.

In May, more than 50,000 people were evacuated from Hanover after bombs were discovered during pre-construction work.

Trump on assault accuser: ‘She’s not my type’

President Trump responded to E. Jean Carroll’s sexual assault accusation Monday with a strange choice of words: “She’s not my type.”

In an Oval Office interview, the president told the Hill: “I’ll say it with great respect: Number one, she’s not my type. Number two, it never happened. It never happened, OK?”

He went on to say that Carroll, an Elle columnist who accuses him of sexually assaulting her in the dressing room of a high-end department store more than 20 years ago, is “totally lying.” “I know nothing about this woman,” he said. “It’s just a terrible thing that people can make statements like that.”

This isn’t the first time Trump has fired back at women accusing him of sexual misconduct by saying he wasn’t attracted to them, the New York Times reports. “Believe me, she would not be my first choice, that I can tell you,” he said of an accuser in 2016.

“I love that I’m not his type. Don’t you love that you’re not his type,” Carroll told Anderson Cooper on CNN after Trump’s remarks.

She said Trump was delivering his standard response to being accused of sexual misconduct. “He denies, he turns it around, he threatens and he attacks.” (Trump has denied ever meeting Carroll, despite photographic evidence.)

Baby died after suffering nearly 100 fractures, blows to the head, autopsy reveals

HOUSTON, Texas — An autopsy reveals the horrific circumstances that lead to the death of a Houston baby at just 10 weeks old.

Jazmine Robin was born premature at just 29 weeks. She spent several weeks in the hospital before being released to her parents on July 3, 2018 as a healthy baby, according to court records obtained by KTRK.

Just 11 days later, she was brought to the hospital with “clearly inflicted head trauma.”

Katharine White

An autopsy, which was released last month, shows the baby had 96 total fractures, including a skull fracture, 71 rib fractures, and 23 long bone fractures, KTRK reported.

“It makes my heart break,” said Jazmine’s great-grandmother Virginia White. She said she never got a chance to meet her great-granddaughter.

White’s granddaughter, Katharine White, was Jazmine’s mother. She is charged with injury to a child by omission.

The baby’s father, Jason Robin Jr., is charged with murder.

About a week before Jazmine’s death, the parents said they had to give her CPR because she stopped breathing, according to KTRK. Once she regained consciousness, the parents did not take the baby to the hospital, court records revealed.

A man who lived in the same house as Robin and White told investigators that he told Robin he needed to take the baby to the hospital, but that he refused. A pediatrician who saw Jazmine a few days before her death also advised the parents to take their baby to the hospital, but that they showed “no interest.”

KTRK reports that the couple’s older son has been placed in foster care. A third child that White had since Jazmine’s death is staying with a relative.

As of Monday afternoon, neither Robin nor White had been arrested.

Michigan high court taking up fight over private school aid

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The Michigan Supreme Court has agreed to take up a major lower court decision that allows Michigan tax dollars to flow to private schools.

A coalition of public school groups and the American Civil Liberties Union had urged the state’s high court to reverse an October opinion by the appeals court. The court said private schools can receive public money to help them comply with health, safety and welfare rules.

In Tuesday’s order, Michigan Supreme Court Justice Stephen Markman said the court needs to resolve the issue with a “final decision.”

Critics say the Michigan Constitution clearly states that no public money can aid a private school.

The Republican-controlled Legislature and then-Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, a Republican, approved $2.5 million in 2016 for state requirements at private schools.
