Daybreak: Meet the Apocalyptic Thriller's Stacked Cast
Daybreak isn't just a post-apocalyptic zombie series with an epic soundtrack and snappy dialogue — it also has a cast stacked with your teen TV favorites. That's no surprise, given that the show takes place after a nuclear blast that renders most adults dead or into Ghoulies, who are basically the living dead. It stars Supernatural's Colin Ford as the extraordinarily ordinary Canuck Josh Wheeler searching for Sam Dean, his manic pixie dream girlfriend played by Disney star Sophie Simnett. You might recognize the biggest name on the call sheet: Matthew Broderick. The seasoned actor plays one suspiciously nice Principal Burr, a throwback to the star's cult high school films Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Election.
