The Walking Dead spin-off series, which is titled Cobalt, has found its male lead in Cliff Curtis.

The star’s acting credits include Fire Lord Ozai in The Last Airbender and Javier Acosta in Fox’s 2014 series Gang Related.

Though AMC declined to comment on who Curtis will be playing, we’ve narrowed it down to Sean Cabrera, a “Latino male in his early 40s… a good man trying to do right by everyone else in his life”, mainly because he’s listed first in the character descriptions. 

Curtis is the third cast member to be announced, following the news that Frank Dillane (Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince) and Alycia Debnam-Carey (Into The Storm) are also joining the show earlier this week.

The Walking Dead returns to AMC in the US and FOX in the UK in February. You can buy The Walking Dead Season 1-4 on DVD for £39.99 from Get more undead news with every new issue of SciFiNow.
