Last week iDigitalTimes reported that Lawrence Gilliard Jr. (pictured above; “The Wire”, The Waterboy) was in talks to play the role of “Roy Stark” in AMC’s Season 4 of “The Walking Dead”.
Per THR, it turns out he’s actually playing “Bob Stookey”, “a former Army medic who is deeply haunted by his past — both before and after the apocalypse. He’s a loner, though he maintains a charming yet self-deprecating façade.” Apparently Stookey played a decent-sized role in the comics so fans of the book should be pleased.
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.
