‘Walking Dead’ Season 5 Adds a New Cast Member – The Wire’s Seth Gilliam

Project Casting

With people dying on The Walking Dead, faster than zombies in an apocalyptic movie, AMC zombie drama has needed to cast new actors for the series.

AMC has recently announced that Seth Gilliam from HBO’s The Wire, has joined Walking Dead as a new series regular for the fifth season.

It is expected that he will play a character listed as Michael Todd (his real name is being kept under wraps).

Michael is described as having two sides, displaying a friendly humor, but also having a haunted side from a dark secret.

You may also remember Gilliam from MTV’s Teen Wolf, where it is expected that he will continue to do while acting on Walking Dead. 

Seth Gilliam is the third of three other actors from the cast of HBO’s The Wire’. Other cast members include The Wire’s Cutty (Chad Coleman) and D’Angelo (Larry Gilliard Jr.).

Maybe we can get lucky if they add Omar Little (played by Michael K. Williams).  Not only The Wire’s most badass character, but most likely the most badass character in the history of television.
