Speculation recently was rampant and today we have an answer as to who’s playing the epic role of The Governor in AMC’s The Walking Dead.

Deadline reports that David Morrissey secured the role:

The British actor is set to join the megahit zombie drama as a new series regular in Season 3, playing The Governor, a popular character from Robert Kirkman’s graphic novel that serves as the basis for the AMC series. The Governor is the leader of Woodbury, a small settlement of survivors, and becomes the chief antagonist for The Walking Dead‘s lead Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his group.

The Walking Dead season 3 is expected to premiere towards the end of this year. Congrats to David Morrissey – we’re sure he’ll be an instant hit on the show!

    If they can pull off the governor arc as good as it was in the comic books, The Walking Dead would recover the momentum it had in the first season. I have liked the season 2 so far, but I think its a bit slow. They should leave the farm ASAP, something is going to happen that would make them leave the farm for good, because right now they are very comfortable there.
