Chad Coleman is ready to kill some zombie.
The actor (The Wire, I Hate My Teenage Daughter) has signed on for a key Walking Dead Season 3 role: he will come on board the AMC smash as Tyreese, a graphic novel character who comes to Rick's aid as he prepares for battle with The Governor.
According to TV Overmind, Coleman will debut around Episode 8, which would mean we'll see him either on the upcoming winter finale or in the spring of 2013 when The Walking Dead returns.
Look for Tyreese to mostly be seen in Woodbury.
