I can’t think of another character, except perhaps the enigmatic Michonne, that has fans speculating more as to who would play them in the The Walking Dead TV series than The Governor. He singlehandedly encapsulates all that’s evil about the new world Rick and his companions find themselves in after the dead begin to rise.
And now, we know what actor will be taking on that coveted role. He is British thespian David Morrissey and he will join the show as a new series regular for season 3.
In case you’re not familiar with the character, he’s the leader of Woodbury, a small settlement of survivors, who becomes the chief antagonist for Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his group. Of course, that doesn’t really do him justice.
Let’s just say he’s a bad man. A very, very, bad man. Now that we know Morrissey will play him, what do we think of this casting choice? At first glance, I’m not convinced. However, I’m willing to give the actor a chance to prove himself worthy.
What say you Walking Dead fans?
