TV NEWS: Jeffery Dean Morgan Cast as Negan on AMC’s The Walking Dead

November 10th, 2015 by Irwin Fletcher Comments



It’s official folks! Everybody’s favorite foul-mouthed villain is on his way to AMC’s hit show, The Walking Dead. He will be played by none other than Jeffery Dean Morgan who has also starred in The Watchmen, Grey’s Anatomy, and The Losers.

Negan first appears in The Walking Dead #100 with his trusty baseball bat covered in barbed wire, Lucille after Rick kills of a number of men in his group, The Saviors. His entrance  also ushers in the death of a major character within the main group. While Negan is well-known for dropping plenty of F-bombs throughout the comic series, surely AMC will have to either clean up his language or censor him until the show is released on Netflix. (My hope is the latter)


Negan will be introduced during the season 6 finale and will surely be the prominent story-line throughout the next season and possibly more seasons to come.

What do you guys think of this casting? Are you big fans of Negan? Let me know in the comments below!
