at . Comments

Xander Berkeley has been cast on The Walking Dead Season 6.

This news was initially broken back in September, but TV Line has now updated its announcement to confirm just which character the veteran actor will bring to life on AMC this winter.

Berkeley will be coming on board as Gregory, a villain from Robert Kirkman's comic book series who acts as the leader of the Hilltop Colony.

He is described as being cowardly and as someone who will cause major problems for Maggie and Rick.

Look for Gregory to betray the heroes at one point and to work with Jeffrey Dean Morgan's Negan, the main antagonist for Rick and company when The Walking Dead returns on February 14.

Berkeley has previously appeared in… pretty much everything. He’s enjoyed roles on Zoo, Salem, 12 Monkeys, Nikita and 24, just to name a few.

Here's a look, meanwhile, as the first official promo for The Walking Dead's return.
