According to iDigitalTimes, Lawrence Gilliard Jr. (The Wire) is on the verge of being signed to the Season 4 cast of The Walking Dead as the recurring character Roy Stark. Gilliard, who recently co-starred with Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator) in the grisly thriller Would You Rather, is on the short list after a round of auditions earlier this month.
Roy Stark is described as a "former army medic who is deeply haunted by his past,” and if Gilliard is offered the role, he will be joining fellow Wire alumnus Chad Coleman, who joined up last season as Tyreese.
Roy Stark and other new characters should be finalized soon, and Season 4 goes before the cameras next month. More news to come!
