Jeffrey Dean Morgan Joins The Cast Of ‘The Walking Dead’ In Major Villain Role

While there’s every chance a certain fan-favorite character made it out of that situation alive a few weeks ago, it looks like his time might actually be up very soon. The Hollywood Report has revealed that Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen, Batman v Superman) will join the cast of The Walking Dead as the villainous barb bat-wielding f-bomb dropping Negan. Batters up! The character, who has been teased to make an appearance since the series fifth season, will debut in the season six finale which will be directed by Greg Nictero and begins production this week in Atlanta.

There’s been speculation for quite some time that we would see Negan & Lucille pop up this season and rumors began speculating earlier this month regarding the character and casting. It seems that Timothy Olyphant, Matt Dillon and Garett Dilahunt were all in the running for the role but I’d definitely say that they made the right decision here. Let us know your thoughts on Morgan joining the cast in the comments below.
