David Morrissey On For The Walking Dead
He's The Governor...

David Morrissey On For The Walking Dead

With The Walking Dead more running than stumbling in the ratings on the telly box both across the pond and here, it’s already been renewed for a third season. And now US channel AMC has announced that David Morrissey will join the cast.

We’ll add a possible *Spoiler Warning* here for anyone who has yet to read the comic books that the series is based on, though given how the series tends to deviate in terms of plot and characters’ fates, it could be nothing of the sort.

Morrissey will play The Governor, the cruel leader of a community called Woodbury that Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and co stumble across. Given the comic’s bleak outlook, you won’t be surprised to learn that the Guv turns out to be a spectacularly nasty piece of work, and ends up doing some very nasty things to our heroes. So nasty, in fact, that we have a suspicion he’ll be toned down a bit for TV.

The Walking Dead, which also features Jon Bernthal, Sarah Wayne Callies, Laurie Holden Jeffrey DeMunn, Steven Yuen and Norman Reedus, airs Sunday nights in the US and the following Friday in the UK. The third season will kick off shooting this spring in Atlanta.

Bear in mind Andrew Lincoln is also British and he's arguably the hero of the piece. Oh and we are generally nastier than our American friends. More
