According to The Hollywood Reporter, actor Seth Gilliam has joined the cast of The Walking Dead as a series regular. Details on his character are being kept under wraps for the time being, but the site has a theory that he could be playing the role of comic character Gabriel Stokes in the series.
What is pretty cool about Gilliam’s casting is that he is the third former cast member of HBO’s The Wire to join the series, following Chad Coleman who plays Tyreese and Larry Gilliard Jr. who plays Bob.
Based on the comic created by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard.
Season five of The Walking Dead is set to air on AMC this fall.
