D'Angelo Barksdale Is Reportedly Joining 'Walking Dead' Cast As Series Regular

Lawrence Gilliard Jr.

I'd file this one under unconfirmed for now. Although International Digital Times is a reputable magazine...


International Digital Times is reporting exclusively that Lawrence Gilliard Jr. (likely best known for his role as  for 18 episodes of The Wire, although he's done a lot more) is in talks to join season 4 of AMC's hit zombie drama series The Walking Dead, in a new series regular role.

Of course the question is what role exactly could that be? And are producers of the series really going to have a 4 black series regulars on the show at one time? 

Recall that, just a couple of weeks ago, it was announced that Chad Coleman (who plays Tyreese, and who's also a former cast member of The Wire) and Sonequa Martin-Green (who plays Sasha) had been promoted to series regulars in the hit zombie series, which returns in October.

And there's also Danai Gurira as Michonne, who's slowly coming into her own, as the actress instructed us in a video interview posted in this site last week.

Earlier this month, it was reported that a casting call for a new series regular role for a character named Roy Stark, was issued. The character was described as a former army medic who is deeply haunted by his past. As a result, he’s a bit of a loner, although he maintains a charming/self-deprecating/confident public face.

Could Gilliard be Roy Stark?

Stay tuned...
