If you were eagerly following actor Garret Dillahunt’s Twitter campaign to bag the role of Negan in The Walking Dead a while back and were a little disappointed that he lost out to Jeffrey Dean Morgan, all hope isn’t gone just yet.
Obviously Dillahunt hasn’t been cast as Negan – we just established Jeffrey Dean Morgan won that one – but it seems as though his tweets didn’t go unnoticed: the actor has officially been added to the cast of Fear The Walking Dead Season 4.
Nothing is currently known about Dillahunt’s character besides the fact that he’ll be a series regular. But the actor did express his excitement at joining the show on Twitter:
Thanks boss. We got some pretty cool stuff planned! https://t.co/R9vbvRFxqo
