Lawrence Gilliard Jr. in talks to join “The Walking Dead”

April 24, 2013

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. (The WireThe Waterboy) is in talks for the role.

It’s already been reported that 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.
