Is he a beast? Whether Sam is or not, he definitely shares some characteristics with those who have mutated DNA.
First skyrocketing to prominence in 1996's "That Thing You Do!," Scott has appeared in numerous movies and TV shows over his career. Although most recently seen in "Southland," other TV roles have included "Gcb," "Sons of Anarchy," "Law & Order" and "ER. »

If you’ve been following casting news for The Walking Dead Season 4, you know that some major characters will be showing up before the end of the season and we have one more addition that will keep you guessing.
According to THR, Andrew J. West (Greek, pictured below) will appear in the second half of The Walking Dead Season 4 and will play an important part in the season, with a possibility of being promoted to a series regular in Season 5 (if he survives).
