David Morrissey Will Play The Governor On The Walking Dead

Deadline is reporting that David Morrissey has been cast as The Governor in AMC’s The Walking Dead. Starting in season 3, Morrissey will become a regular on the show in a role that has been highly anticipated by fans for a while now.

For those unfamiliar with the show, or the comics, The Governor is “the leader of Woodbury, a small settlement of survivors, and becomes the chief antagonist for Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his group.”

While I’m not too familiar with the character, I do love the show and I have heard of The Governor before. From what I’ve read on forums and whatnot, fans are quite eager to see him show up in the show so this casting news will surely excited the hardcore followers of AMC’s wildly popular show.

If you’re familiar with the comics and you know who The Governor is, let us know what you think of this casting decision.
