One of my fave Brit actors, David Morrissey, is joining the cast of AMC's "The Walking Dead." In Season Three, he will take the role of The Governor, a character from Robert Kirkman's graphic novel, who leads the settlement of Woodbury and becomes the chief antagonist for Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his group.
The 16-episode Season Three order from AMC begins production this spring in Atlanta.
The star of "State of Play," "The Deal," and "Blackpool" recently wrapped "Welcome to the Punch" opposite James McAvoy and Mark Strong.
Check out TOH's reviews of "The Walking Dead" Season Two, which run right after the show airs each Sunday at 9pm on AMC.
