The Walking Dead: Casting for New Series Regular

by at . Comments

The Walking Dead Season 4 will feature at least one brand new face.

AMC confirms that it is seeking an actor in his 30s or 40s to come on board this fall in the role of Roy Stark, a former army medic whose self-deprecating public persona masks some seriously major personal demons.

The character will be a series regular.

Following Sunday's record-breaking season finale, it was also announced that David Morrisey would return next year as The Governor, a departure from the graphic novels in which that villain is killed in his raid on the prison.

Look for The Walking Dead to return with new episodes in October.

ENOUGH !!! with the Governor. How long is TWD going to beat that horse that should have died 10 times by now, He absolutely should have died in the season finale,...violently and painfully. It is getting beyond reason and to the point of ridiculousness already with the Governors seeming invincibility, ...zombies can't kill him, trained police can't kill him, badass rednecks can't kill him, give me a break, let's move on with the story already there are so many other things and places to explore with the series, the governor arc was already OVERPLAYED out by the end of season 3.

Enough with the Governor. He should NOT return. There are many new obstacles they will face. Get on with the story, don't rehash the same one over and over.

They could try to get the actor who played Nathan Stark on the series " Eureka ".
The Governor story - arc might be wearing a little thin by next season.

I find it annoying when they prolong a villain on a show longer than necessary.
