The Wire and Teen Wolf alum will join the cast of The Walking Dead as a Series Regular in Season 5.
When we left our favorite group of survivors at the conclusion of Season 4 of The Walking Dead, they had turned the page in the story. They now know that Terminus was definitely not everything that was promised. There is no sanctuary, and everyone does not survive. Now, they are going to have to fight their way out; however, it’s not the walkers they have to worry about.
When the new season kicks off on October 12th, we will have a new character on the show. According to Deadline, The Wire alum Seth Gilliam will be joining the cast of the show as a series regular.
He will play a character listed on the breakdown as Michael Todd, though his real name is being kept under wraps. (Maybe fans could recognize a character from the graphic novel in the description?) Michael is described as having two sides, displaying a friendly, puckish humor but also having a haunted side stemming from a dark secret.”
Deadline is also reporting that Gilliam, who currently stars on the hit MTV Original Series Teen Wolf, is currently expected to remain in his role on the MTV series while he is starring in The Walking Dead for AMC.
At this point, which character he will portray is up for speculation; however, I am sure that as we get closer to the premiere date, more information will slowly make its way to the world.
Which character do you think Gilliam is actually scheduled to play in the series? Is there anyone in the graphic novels that you feel properly fits the description that AMC has released? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
The Walking Dead returns on October 12, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. on AMC.
