Update: Lawrence Gilliard Jr.’s role in “The Walking Dead”

April 27, 2013

Last week iDigitalTimes reported that Lawrence Gilliard Jr. (“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.

Gilliard will join newly minted regulars (and former recurrings) David Morrissey, Chad L. Coleman and Sonequa Martin-Green on the show.
