The Performer | Regina King
The Show | The Leftovers
The Episode | “Lens” (Nov. 8, 2015)
The Performance | We know we sound like a broken record, going on the way we do about The Leftovers. But if you watch the show, you understand. And if you don’t, not only should you, but you oughta get used to our praise, because both the drama and its stars are just. That. Good. Take, for example, King’s tour de force this week.
At first, the actress showed us the Erika that we already knew and admired, a woman as solid as the rock that Nora »
The most menacing villain in the history of “The Walking Dead” is making the leap from the pages of the comic book to your television. Negan — leader of a brutal group known as The Saviors — has long been speculated to join the cast and now AMC has found their man in Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Which is probably bad news for Glenn (Steven Yeun). THR reports Morgan will first appear as a guest star before being promoted to series regular for Season Seven. Morgan snagged the role from other contender including Matt Dillon, Garret Dillahunt, and Timothy Olyphant. But the arrival of Negan could show which way the wind is blowing for Glenn, who is currently stuck in a Schrödinger's Cat scenario. Warning: “The Walking Dead” Spoilers And Speculation Beyond This Point! In the comic, Negan first appeared in the 100th issue and wasted no time proving he was a vicious dictator. »

After a lot of speculation on when the comic book villain would make his appearance on The Walking Dead series, and an copious amount of rumors regarding Who would portray him, AMC has picked their actor for Negan.
A few months ago there were rumors of Jon Hamm (Mad Men) supposedly set to play Walking Dead villain, Negan. Hamm had mentioned that he had spoken with show execs numerous times and mentioned in an MTV interview that “It would be fun to play the series’ most famous villain.”
I, for one, was pretty excited to hear that Hamm would be a part of the series and that he’d be playing that character. Unfortunately Hamm did not get the part. Insert sad face here. The role of Negan has been given to, Jeffery Dean Morgan. Insert wildly ecstatic smiley face here.
Morgan has starred in Supernatural, Watchmen, & The Losers to name a few. »

As fans of Robert Kirkman's comic book series know, Negan is a notorious leader of a group of survivors known as The Saviors. A big man with a warped sense of humor and a penchant for dropping "F-bombs", Negan rules with a barbed wire-wrapped baseball bat he lovingly calls Lucille. Local communities are forced to comply with Negan's demands for food and other resources, or risk the wrath of his swing.
Negan first appeared in issue #100, making an immediate impact on readers' psyches with his horrifying slaying of a key character, leading to the action-packed events »

It finally happened! The Walking Dead has cast Negan. The iconic villain role will be played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan as a guest star in the The Walking Dead Season 6 finale. He will then become a series regular in The Walking Dead Season 7. The character was first introduced in Robert Kirkman's comic book upon which the AMC series is based. He has a long and storied history in the pages of the comic. And he quickly became a fan favorite, one that audiences have been clamoring for ever since the show was launched in 2010.
The casting search for Negan was an extensive one. And last week, it was believed that Garret Dillahunt had walked away with the role. Though, that actor may still be involved with the series somehow. Negan will be the show's next major villain. And he is known as an F-bomb dropping, dastardly presence. Warning. There »
Following an extensive casting search, Morgan has scored the iconic role, a frequently swearing character who is considered the darkest and most evil of Robert Kirkman's comic series to date.
Morgan's character is first expected to arrive in the sixth season finale and is the violent leader of a group known as The Saviors who use force and intimidation to subjugate other communities.
Morgan reportedly beat out the likes of Timothy Olyphant, Matt Dillon and Garret Dillahunt for the role and will first join the series as a guest star before being promoted to series regular for season seven. Filming on the sixth season finale begins this week in Atlanta.
In the comics Negan has a baseball bat covered in barbed wire named 'Lucille' »

Though Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Deadwood star Garret Dillahunt had seemingly been linked with the part, AMC has announced that Jeffery Dean Morgan will be joining The Walking Dead Season 6 as infamous comic book villain Negan.
It’s an iconic role for the Watchmen and The Good Wife alum to assume, and it raises all manner of questions about the fate of certain characters on the network’s hit zombie series. As such, we’d advise against venturing any further if you want to avoid spoilers.

Warning: This post contains Spoilers about "The Walking Dead" TV show and comics. Read on at your own risk.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the character is set to make his debut during the season six finale, setting up a long arc for the f-bomb-loving antagonist. Negan is the leader of a group known as The Saviors, which begins taking over other isolated communities -- including Alexandria -- through the use of brutal force and intimidation.
Negan's arrival had been anticipated for some time by fans of the comics, though recent events on the series have called his iconic introduction into question. In the comics, Negan kills Glenn in a shocking, bloody scene. As viewers know, Glenn's fate is currently up in the air, as »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan will debut as Negan in the season 6 finale of The Walking Dead. The news comes after rumors began circulating the internet that Garret Dillahunt had won the role. If AMC viewers thought the show would never have a villain as evil as The Governor (David Morrisey), guess again. In the comic series, Negan has inflicted more damage on Rick Grimes and co. than any other single force. THR confirms that Dillahunt was indeed in the running for the role, along with Timothy Olyphant, Matt Dillon. What do you think of the casting? A lot of Justified fans will surely be miffed that Olyphant missed out on the role. Take the conversation to the comment section below and tune in this Sunday to finally find out what happened to Glenn. Did he miraculously survive only to be setup for a momentous meeting with Lucile? »
Despite reports that he has been cast, actor Garret Dillahunt has revealed that he's only lobbying for the role of iconic comic villain Negan in AMC's "The Walking Dead". In a series of tweets, Dillahunt says:
"It's true, I am a @WalkingDead_AMC fan. I want #Negan. They are looking at some great actors and will make the best choice for the show. So surprised and grateful for all the support my public lobbying has received. Thank you. If not #Negan then something else someday! #Wd" [Source: Twitter]
Two cable TV series have scored renewals. First up, IFC has announced that they will continue to be the TV home for comedian Marc Maron and have commissioned a thirteen-episode fourth season of his semi-autobiographical comedy. The new season premieres late 2016.
Meanwhile Syfy has renewed its zombie drama "Z Nation" for a third season. The channel has ordered fifteen new »

Rumour has it that Negan will first appear in the season six finale of The Walking Dead. For those of you unfamiliar with the character, he’s a foul mouthed thug who uses violence and intimidation to bully the other communities and take a share of their supplies (those communities are expected to be introduced later on this year when it’s revealed in the show – as it was in the comics – that the Alexandria Safe Zone isn’t the only one out there).
Needless to say, Rick Grimes doesn’t take too kindly to this, especially as Negan actually murders one of his best friends with his signature weapon (a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire called “Lucille”) when they first meet.

Rumours surrounding who might play Negan in The Walking Dead have floated around the internet for quite some time; Kevin Durand and Jon Hamm have been said to be the alleged frontrunners, with Hamm even expressing an interest to work with Robert Kirkman earlier this year.
Now, this is simply speculation at the this point, but talk is circulating suggesting that Garrett Dillahunt – star of Justified and Deadwood – has been cast in the role, which stems from a post on Twitter where he revealed he’s busy reading Compendium Three of The Walking Dead comic.

Whilst this is no indication that he has actually been cast on the show, the general reaction is that he will play Negan and will show up some time in Season 6. But of course, take this with a »

Rumor has it, Garret Dillahunt ("Justified," "Deadwood") has won the role of Negan on The Walking Dead. As readers of the comic book series know, the TV show is not a direct adaptation of the comic but still loosely follows the comic's progression. These same readers know that the TV show is quickly approaching the point in the comic where Negan will be introduced. At the very least, AMC and The Walking Dead showrunners have to be actively searching for someone capable of wickedly swinging a barbed-wire bat. According to Uproxx, that search is over as Dillahunt has landed the role based on some clues they've uncovered via Twitter. Can you picture Dillahunt in the role? Did you have your own pick? Until this is confirmed by AMC or someone from the show, keep your salt handy. Reading material for the day: @TheWalkingDead Just cause. pic.twitter.com/AIvktnk3XX »
Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead comics have provided fans with a slew of memorable heroes and villains over the years, many of which have been brought to life on the massively-popular AMC TV series. There is one character, however, that fans have been clamoring for more than anyone else, the brutal villain Negan. Showrunner Scott M. Gimple has always played coy about whether or not Negan will surface at some point this season, and a casting call from September seemingly teased that the producers were searching for the right actor to play him, even though this particular character was named Rich. Today we add another mysterious piece to the Negan puzzle, which comes from actor Garret Dillahunt, who tweeted a photo of his "reading material," The Walking Dead Compenium #3, the same volume where Negan first appears.
Naturally, a photo of a comic book is far from any sort of casting confirmation. »
Amazon Studios have had a pretty good year. Comedy drama Transparent has become an awards darling, and holds the distinction of being the first series shown on a streaming video service to win the Golden Globe for Best Series. The recent release of other popular shows including Mozart In The Jungle and Bosch has cemented their place as a rival to Netflix and other streaming services currently producing their own content.
Unlike their rivals, Amazon Studios let the audience have a major role in choosing what content they produce – each year Amazon orders a series of pilots, and it is down to audience viewing figures as to what shows are picked up for a full series run. Sometimes this system works, and other times it »
Jokers, circus masters and demonic dolls. Which TV characters terrify you? Den Of Geek asked its writers that very question…
The subconscious is a terrible place; dark, mysterious and peopled by spectres from the past. As a bit of a laugh then, we sent our writers journeying into theirs and asked them to drag out any TV terrors they found lurking in the shadows.
Some television fears had been ensconced there since childhood, others were more recent tenants. Some were morally terrifying; human beings with icy hearts capable of atrocities, others were simply… atrocities.
Join us as we count down in order of terror from the sort-of-creepy to the downright terrifying, the 50 TV characters that, for whatever reason, give our writers chills. It’s by no means an exhaustive list, so feel free to fill in gaps by adding your own peculiar television nightmares below…

A mixed-race boxer in Manila tries to undo the wrongs wrought by a fixed fight in “Beast.” Promising debut feature for brothers Tom and Sam McKeith captures that city’s humid, teeming life with atmospheric familiarity, while its not particularly complex character writing and narrative get an additional boost by newcomer Chad McKinney’s lead performance. In nearly every scene, and with relatively little dialogue, he delivers a strong, thoughtful screen presence that lends “Beast” its substance. Beyond New Director-type showcases, commercial exposure will likely skew toward streaming sales.
Pugilist Jaime Grey (McKinney) has his hands full looking after ne’er-do-well American father/manager Rick (Garret Dillahunt). While the family’s Filipina matriarch is apparently working abroad — and, judging from the evidence of her occasional brief phone calls, eager to keep a cautious distance, even psychologically, from her menfolk — the interdependent father and son have a lopsided relationship, as Junior »

No, Mindy Lahiri is no longer drunkenly riding bicycles into swimming pools, but please don’t think that means she’ll have her stuff together when The Mindy Project returns — on Hulu — on Tuesday, Sept. 15.
Executive producer Matt Warburton tells TVLine that the comedy is viewing its expanded, 26-episode fourth season as an opportunity to mess with its main character, who seems like she’s gotten pretty much everything she wanted.
