The Walking Dead has added a new castmember to its ranks in a mysterious new role.
Xander Berkeley has been cast in the hit zombie apocalypse series and upon first read, the part sounds like that of a certain bad guy everyone has been waiting for.
According to TVLine, who broke the news, Berkeley’s mystery character shares “some of the same characteristics as Negan. Namely his narcissism, huge ego and self-preservation. He’s also said to relish the superiority that comes with being in control, but he plays it off with a car salesman-type charm.”
The site promises that Berkeley, however, is NOT playing Negan, so fans will still have to wait on that casting news.
Berkeley has a long list of acting credits including Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Candyman, 24, Taken, Being Human, Nikita, Salem and Longmire, to name a few.
Look out for the actor to appear in his new role during the second half of the show’s sixth season.
