According to iDigitalTimes, Lawrence Gilliard Jr. is currently in talks to join the Walking Dead crew for season four. What role could he be up for? Well earlier this month we told you that AMC was looking for an actor to fill the shoes of a new character named “Roy Stark.”
Based on the character being described as an “army medic haunted by his past” many fans believed that Roy Stark is actually Sgt. Abraham from the comic series. At this point, nothing has been confirmed, but with the season set to start shooting in May I imagine the news will be made official soon enough.
Interesting side note: Lawrence Gilliard Jr has already had screentime with another Walking Dead alum. Chad Coleman, who plays Tyreese, previously starred with Lawrence in “The Wire.”
