Amid all the horror of last night's 'Walking Dead' midseason climax "Too Far Gone," viewers were privy to two mysterious unidentified teasers highlighting found footage of assembled rats, and a tagline "He is Here." Some have pointed to potential viral advertising for 'Godzilla,' but are the teasers actually undercover spots for Guillermo del Toro's FX vampire drama 'The Strain'?

The other day we were exhaustively relieved to learn that FX's Guillermo del Toro vampire pilot 'The Strain' had officially been picked up to series, following a long development process. However, scheduling conflicts forced out del Toro regular and 'Doctor Who' star John Hurt, which is why 'Game of Thrones' baddie David Bradley has now joined the cast!

It's nigh impossible to believe at this point that we're still talking about Guillermo del Toro's forthcoming FX-adapted pilot 'The Strain' without an official series order, though it seems the vampire drama has continued casting for recurring parts all the same. '24' and recent 'Revolution' star Leslie Hope is the latest to catch 'The Strain,' but whom will she play if the FX series finally gets off the ground?

Going on months now, we've heard plenty of casting reports from FX's Guillermo del Toro-adapted vampire thriller 'The Strain,' though little in the way of a highly-anticipated series order. That process continues today, as '24' vet Roger Cross has been announced to join the massive ensemble in an action-heavy role, but as whom, you ask?

We thought Guillermo del Toro's forthcoming FX horror adaptation pilot 'The Strain' had delivered its biggest casting with yesterday's addition of 'Lord of the Rings' star Sean Astin, but today has proven us literally wrong. Hulking 'Pacific Rim' star Robert Maillet has signed on to play the vampire thriller's major villain, so can a series order from FX be far behind?

Seriously, how has FX not picked this up to series yet? Guillermo del Toro certainly has much to prove at the box office this weekend with the release of 'Pacific Rim,' but his upcoming FX pilot adaptation of 'The Strain' is proving monstrous in its own right. 'Lord of the Rings' and 'Goonies' star Sean Astin is the latest high-profile star to join the cast, but will he prove friend or foe?
