'Walking Dead' briefs: Lauren Cohan, Sonequa Martin-Green on 'Lip Sync Battle,' Norman Reedus on 'Talking Dead' season finale

In a "Walking Dead"-theme episode of "Lip Sync Battle" Thursday at 10 p.m., Lauren Cohan (Maggie Greene) and Sonequa Martin-Green (Sasha Williams) face off.

Spike released some teasers of Cohan mouthing the words to Night Ranger's "Sister Christan" while Martin-Green opted for Silento's "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)"

The two actors will sing two songs each.

"Lip Sync Battle" has been an inexplicable hit for Spike TV since Jimmy Fallon came up with the concept a couple years ago.

It's part of the whole "celebrities can do fun things too" concept that Fallon has perfected. Other hosts have found their own niches such as James Corden and his insufferable "Carpool Karaoke."

AMC has released part of the guest list for the final "Talking Dead" of the season following "The Walking Dead" season finale Sunday.

Favorite Norman Reedus - whose character Daryl was shot in the shoulder by Dwight at the end of last Sunday's peisode - is joined by executive producers Robert Kirkman and Scott Gimple and a surprise cast member at 10:30 p.m. My guess: whoever dies.

Andrew Lincoln knows how to hype up "The Walking Dead."

In this case, he told Entertainment Weekly that the entrance of Negan will be epic and the finale really really dark. Isn't this show dark enough already?

“You know …” he begins, before laughing again. “Just get ready, man. Just get ready.” Lincoln shares that exec producer Greg Nicotero, who directed the episode, has called it “the best one yet,” and Lincoln seems to agree, especially when it comes to  the introduction of his soon-to-be-on-screen nemesis. “I read the script and I went, ‘This is the greatest entrance ever written.’ ”
