We have breaking news from the Walking Dead front, zombie fans! Somebody in the casting department must really like Baltimore drug crime dramas, because the third Wire alum has joined the cast (Chad L. Coleman, who plays Tyreese, and Larry Gilliard Jr., who plays Bob, were both on The Wire). Our newest Walking Dead cast member is Seth Gilliam, who played Sgt. Ellis Carver on the HBO show, and also starred in Starship Troopers as the extremely attractive Sugar Watkins.
Gilliam has been added as a series regular for season 5, and while there hasn't been much information released about his character yet, it sounds like he may be playing someone based on Gabriel Stokes from the comics. Here's what we know so far about Gilliam's casting -- and some backstory on "Father Gabriel."
