AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ has finally found its Negan.
According to THR, actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Watchman, Grey’s Anatomy, The Good Wife, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice) has officially landed the role as the villainous Negan, the foul-mouthed leader of a brutal group known as The Saviors.
Morgan will debut as Negan in the Season 6 finale, directed by Greg Nicotero, and becomes a series regular in Season 7.
With Negan’s arrival, the question (once again) is about Glenn’s fate. *SPOILERS* In issue #100, Negan makes his debut by brutally kills Glenn using a baseball bat covered in barbed wire that he calls Lucille.
What do you think of Morgan as Negan? I think it’s the perfect casting decision.
