EW has your first look at Larry Gilliard Jr. as the new character Bob Stookey in AMC’s Season 4 of “The Walking Dead”.
“His backstory is not entirely the same as in the comic and the novel,” says new showrunner Scott M. Gimple. “I think he’s seen things go bad over and over, and winding up in this stable place doesn’t shake him from his experience. He struggles with that.
“You can see there’s something deeper and darker that’s going on with this character, just from the first episode,” says Gilliard. “We don’t really know what it is. We just know he’s got some issues that he’s dealing with.”
“The Walking Dead” returns this October with brand new episodes. Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, “The Walking Dead” tells the story of a group of survivors who travel in search of a safe and secure home in the months and years following a zombie apocalypse. The series stars Andrew Lincoln, David Morrissey, Steven Yeun, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Chandler Riggs, Lauren Cohan, Scott Wilson, Melissa McBride, Chad Coleman, Sonequa Martin-Green, and Emily Kinney.
