iZombie Q&A: Taking Aim at Iconic Characters with Worst Quarter-Life Crises Ever

at .

Until now, very little was known about iZombie - but we have scoop about the new series from The CW, direct from the producers and stars at Comic-Con!

For starters, being a zombie comes more naturally to star Rose McIver than being a medical student and she thinks death becomes her character Liv:

Malcolm Goodwin plays a desperate detective named Clive who uses Liv's help get his first collar. Find out what other genre shows you can catch him in:

David Anders is the evil zombie who will cause some problems for Liv. It's not his first zombie role, either, something he completely forgot at the iZombie panel:

Robert Buckley was a great sport as I struggled to figure out how in the heck his role, Major Lilywhite, fit into the series as the compassionate ex-fiance:

Rahul Kohli will play Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti, Liv's boss and the only person in the know about her special undead status. Kohli sees similarities between Liv and strong iconic characters like Veronica Mars and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, with Ravi taking on a Giles-like role:

Diane Ruggiero has worked with Rob Thomas before and as a big comic and zombie fan, she couldn't pass up the fertile ground offered on the project:

Veronica Mars creator and producer Rob Thomas previews the two zombies at the core of iZombie, the funniest zombie program we'll find on TV, as well as Veronica Mars actor crossovers and the worst quarter-life crisis ever!
