AMC’s been casting up for Season 4 of “The Walking Dead” and the role of “Roy Stark” may have been filled. It was revealed earlier this month that AMC was looking to fill the part described as a “former army medic who is deeply haunted by his past.” The role is to be a regular on the series. Now iDigitalTimes is reporting that Lawrence Gilliard Jr. (pictured above; “The Wire”, The Waterboy) is in talks for the role. Sadly, I don’t think this indicates a “Game Of Thrones” crossover despite the name.
We already knew that for October’s return David Morrissey will return as a series regular as The Governor. The British actor initially signed on for a one-season role to play the famed villain from the comics created by Robert Kirkman on which the TV series is based. In the Image/Skybound comics, the Governor fails to survive a brutal showdown at the prison with Rick.
Gilliard will join newly minted regulars (and former recurrings) Chad L. Coleman and Sonequa Martin-Green on the show.
