The Hollywood Reporter has shared with us who will be playing the evil role of Negan on The Walking Dead–Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen).
Lesley Goldberg of THR says:
Morgan first will join the series as a guest-star before being promoted to series regular for season seven. Morgan was one of multiple actors who had buzz as being in the running at some point for the role, though no others received offers.
We are excited to see what Morgan does with the role!
