The Walking Dead’s already huge horde of actors only keeps getting bigger as they announce a new cast member for Season 5.

Tyler James Williams (Everybody Hates Chris) has been cast in the show but it is so far unclear whether he will join as a guest star, a recurring character or a regular.

Details about the 21-year-old’s role haven’t yet been confirmed. All we know is he’s playing someone called Noah (which, if he does make more than one appearance, will probably ensure a nice, ahem, character arc).

Williams won’t be the only new face in Season 5. He’ll be joining the show as a newbie along with Seth Gilliam (The Wire), who was confirmed to be playing a new series regular called Michael Todd last May.

Additionally, Alanna Masterson (Tara), Christian Serratos (Rosita) and Andrew J West (Gareth the creepy Terminus ringleader guy) have been promoted to series regulars.

The Walking Dead Season 5 begins 13 October at 10 pm on FOX. You can buy The Walking Dead Season 1-3 on DVD for £28.49 at Get the latest news on The Walking Dead with every new issue of SciFiNow.
