According to Bloody Disgusting, the Eli Stone star is in talks to portray lead character Rick Grimes in the upcoming AMC series.
Grimes is a police officer who guides a group of survivors as they attempt to stay alive following a zombie apocalypse.
If cast, Miller would join actor Jon Bernthal in the project. Bernthal landed the role of Shane, Grime’s best friend, last week.
The show is based on Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore's The Walking Dead comic, published by Image. AMC is to record the pilot episode for the series in May.
Miller is also known for his roles in Trainspotting, Hackers and Aeon Flux.
