The latest on The Walking Dead

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.

Aidan Gillen is Littlefinger on Game of Thrones, John Doman is on Person of Interest and Domenick Lombardozzi  is Al Capones brother on Boardwalk Empire.....I think the white guys from "The Wire" are doing just fine!! Im glad to see Seth back...he was great on the wire.

 I hope the credits for Season 5 of Walking Dead start with Bodie breaking a CCTV camera...

Personally....I hate the black male characters (Michonne is BAD-ASS) on Walking Dead! T-Dog and Tyreese are whiney little bitches and Bob is a straggly looking alcoholic! I was hoping they brought back Lennie James (Morgan) as a permanent character, but no they had him go nuts (great performnce btw!!) They need to get Marcellus Wallace, and a couple of hard pipe-hitting brothers to come in and get medieval on those walkers!! lol

Umm... It's Seth Gilliam, not Seth William...

 ........ I hope Wiseguy isn't being serious... becuase the main character of the show was white.
