Watch: Jeffrey Dean Morgan Talks Negan On The Walking Dead
For the first time we hear from Jeffrey Dean Morgan who has been cast as the new bad guy in The Walking Dead.
Morgan participated in a Q&A at PasCon where he offers the following in the above video:
"The role we are talking about is The Walking Dead. The role of Negan. It's a whole different ball game. You all know about Negan? Me, too. That's why I did it. Here is what I will tell you about Negan... When my agent/manager called they said, ‘You’ve been offered this thing on The Walking Dead…to play this big bad." Which is supposed to be secret, and I’m like, ‘Is it fucking Negan?’ And they’re like, ‘I don’t know, we’re going to call you back. Hold on a second.’ And I’m like, ‘No, it’s fucking Negan. And I'm fucking doing it.' I think the challenge for this role in me is going to be 'is there any heart in Negan.' For me I look at that as a challenge for an actor...”
Negan was name-dropped in the mid-season after credit scene for The Walking Dead.
