THE WALKING DEAD Villain Negan Is A Ninety Nine Percent Lock For The Show; But Don’t Expect Him Anytime Soon


walking dead bannerIn the craziness that was season four of The Walking Dead, Rick was finnaly able to lay to rest one of his biggest nemesis. No, it wasn’t the Walkers, but rather the evil Governor, who over the course of a season and a half toyed with Rick. He captured his people tortured them, and even killed some of them.

Now that the Governor is gone the next logical bad guy that fans will was to appear is Negan. Negan is the current bad guy terrorizing Rick and his group of survivors in the comic books. He first makes his presence known, dispatching one of Rick’s comrades with a barbed wire baseball bat he named Lucile.

This is the question that MTV posed to comic book writer and Executive Producer of The Walking Dead, Robert Kikman. They asked about the character and whether Jon Hamm will play him. “He’s not tall enough,” he joked. “I think Jon Hamm would be perfect. I think after “Mad Men” has run, Jon Hamm is going to have a Tom Hanks level film career, so I don’t think he’ll be coming back to television anytime soon. Although that would be cool!” He did go on to say that you can expect the character, just not anytime soon. “As far as Negan casting goes, Scott and I are always talking about who we would put in that, it’s definitely on our minds, and there are definitely a lot of candidates. But I wouldn’t expect Negan too terribly soon, although he is definitely in the plan. It’s a 99% lock that he’s going to be in the show eventually, so be on the lookout for that,” explained Kirkman.

While we may have to wait a while for Negan, we will not have to wait for Terminus. Rick was reunited with some of his group that scattered from the prison in the season finale, and season five seems to be gering up for a big showdown between Rick and his group of survivors and the group at Terminus.
