That is quite an excellent point, sir. Darabont has never been particularly good at casting. Some of his best casting choices have been by accident.
I think Dale, Daryl, Merle, T-Dog, Glenn, Morgan Jones, and Herschel were cast well. I think all of the leads are embarrassing (Rick, Shane, Lori), and most of the rest are really bland. Even Laurie Holden isn't up to her usually pretty good standards, though I don't think she was miscast.
