It's no longer "unconfirmed." Lawrence Gilliard Jr. (likely best known for his role as D'Angelo Barksdale on The Wire) is indeed joining the season 4 cast of AMC's hit zombie drama series The Walking Dead, in a new series regular role.Of course the question we all had yesterday was, what role exactly could that be, especially with key black roles already filled, like Chad Coleman (who plays Tyreese, and who's also a former cast member of The Wire) and Danai Gurira as Michonne. Sonequa Martin-Green (who plays Sasha, although she's not a character that exists in the comic book source material) was promoted to series regulars in the series, which returns in October.Now we know what role Gilliard is going to play. A character named Bob Stookey.
