Did 'Walking Dead' Season 6 Cast This 'Deadwood' Star as Negan?

5 November 2015 6:05 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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. »
