Following the announcement that Jeffrey Dean Morgan was cast on The Walking Dead as the show’s latest villain Negan (and the gasps died down from fans of the comics) it seems that everyone was firmly on board. Everyone, except Morgan’s mother.
Speaking with talkshow host Seth Meyers on Tuesday night, Morgan said: “When I took the show, she was like, ‘What does this mean with The Good Wife?’” His mum is clearly a big fan of the US drama, but on whether or not we’ll see his character depart from that totally to focus onThe Walking Dead, he says “She was devastated that it could be the end. And I’m like, ‘Mom, just keep your pants on.”
Speaking on the role of Negan, he calls him “a game-changer. It’s a complete 180 from what I’m doing on The Good Wife, which for an actor is a dream come true,” further pleasing fans by saying “I get to be the biggest ass in the world. It’s awesome.”
