NEWS: David Morrisey Joins Cast of The Walking Dead

British actor David Morrisey will be joining the cast of The Walking Dead for its third season.

Warning: The following contains spoilers.

From AMC's Website:

AMC announced today that David Morrissey has been cast in the role of The Governor in the network's critically acclaimed hit series The Walking Dead. The Governor, a character from Robert Kirkman's graphic novel, is the leader of Woodbury, a small settlement of survivors, and becomes the chief antagonist for Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his group.

The Governor will appear in The Walking Dead Season 3, a 16-episode order from AMC, which begins production this spring in Atlanta.

A BAFTA Award nominee, Morrissey has appeared in many acclaimed British series including State of Play, Meadowlands, The Deal and Blackpool. Along with his celebrated work in television, Morrissey is also known for his leading roles in feature films such as The Reaping, The Other Boleyn Girl, Centurion, The Water Horse, Nowhere Boy and Blitz

It's interesting to note that there were rumours last year that fan-favourite Michone would be making the leap from printed page to small screen - a move that seems more likely now with the addition of The Governor to the cast...

The Walking Dead airs on AMC, Sundays at 9PM EST.
