The Hollywood Reporter has announced that another Wire alumni will join the cast of The Walking Dead. Seth William will be the third cast member from HBO series to join AMC’s zombie show. 

“The actor, who played Ellis Carver on The Wire for its entire five-season run, becomes the third alum from the acclaimed HBO drama to join the AMC series based on Robert Kirkman's best-selling graphic novels. Chad Coleman (Tyreese) and Larry Gilliard Jr. (Bob) also count The Wire among their credits, and Kirkman is a big fan of the series”.

Who Seth Williams is playing is being kept under wraps. At this point it could be a number of characters from the comic, but with the path the series has taken, he could play a new character.
