Xander Berkeley, probably best known to Terminator 2 and 24 fans, has signed on for a major, long-term character on The Walking Dead.
Who’s not Negan.
In truth, he’s probably not… but we’re excited to have him on the show anyway.
His character, according to TVLine, has a name that is being kept under wraps and “does share some of the same characteristics as Negan. Namely his narcissism, huge ego and self-preservation. He’s also said to relish the superiority that comes with being in control, but he plays it off with a car salesman-type charm.”
He sure as hell sounds like Negan and, while older than we imagine Negan being, Berkeley certainly has the mannerisms and acting chops for such a role.
He will appear in the second half of the season and he’s already got the option of staying on for Season 7.
What do you think? Are we being duped? Could he be Negan? Or can you see him as someone else from the comics?
Let us know…
The Walking Dead Season Six shambles to our screen on October 11th.
