TV Line has reported that Ross Marquand – who played Paul Newman in the sixth season of Mad Men – is set to join the cast of The Walking Dead as a series regular for the latter half of the show’s fifth season, with the option of returning to the recently announced 6th season.

We don’t know who Marquand will be playing as of yet due to AMC remaining tight-lipped on the part. However, TV Line has speculated that it may by Aaron, a gay character and Alexandria resident from the Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead comic book series. Kirkman has previously mentioned that there would be a prominent gay character from the comics coming to the hit television show.

Could this casting news hint at the crew reaching finally reaching Alexandria this season?

Derek Robertson has dabbled in many aspects of the media industry from a young age. He has always had an admiration for, film, science fiction and all things geek-like. Working in the music industry with Sony/BMG Records gave Derek insight and experience into video directing. Thusly, for many years he took a hands-on, multi-disciplinary approach in creating and editing treatments; working with performance artists, writing and producing music and working both; in front of, and behind the camera. Studying a Msc in Forensic Psychology has embedded a conceptual ethos that has spawned his signature writing style that he now infuses whilst blogging for numerous websites; writing music reviews, movie news, and reviewing network shows et al., . Derek continues to try and erase the boundaries between the homogenous and the insanely dull, culturally enmeshing contemporary socio-political aspects into the mix of the monolithic media industry.
