Actor Jon Bernthal Announces His Return To AMC’s The Walking Dead!
With the cancellation of TNT’s Mob City, actor Jon Bernthal will be returning to AMC’s hit show The Walking Dead. Bernthal, who famously played Shane Walsh will be returning as Hugo, the twin brother of the deceased character.
"He’s not like Shane at all… I mean he has a beard!" Bernthal said about tackling his new role.
Well, there was a lot of breathing room in the comics between them. Whether or not we have the same amount of breathing room, or if we do cut that down a little bit and bring him into the show a little early, remains to be seen. But I definitely do think there needs to be some kind of space from a Governor into a Negan. You have to have something of a break in there. So I wouldn’t expect him to be showing up — definitely not in season 4. I don’t know. I wouldn’t expect it too soon. But we are all very excited about the prospect of bringing that guy into the show. The plan is that we will see him eventually.
The Walking Dead’s Robert Kirkman on when Negan could show up on the show.
I pumped Robert Kirkman for some scoop on the second half of the season and he offered up three interesting tidbits: 1) Carol will definitely return before the end of the season; 2) The Sanctuary, which was discussed in that radio message, will come into play; and 3) Via flashbacks, there will be glimpses into the lives of our favorite characters, likely including Michonne…
He was the moral compass of the group and it’s always good to lose the moral compass. It will all become clear when we finally show you the back half of season 4. It wasn’t enough for these characters to lose the prison. They also had to feel some kind of loss over something important and Hershel was that thing that was important to each and every character, so it made the most sense to take him off the table and see how it affects the characters, which we’ll see when we come back in a bit. So there’s a lot of cool stuff ahead because of that.
The Walking Dead’s Robert Kirkman explained why Herschel needed to die and how it will impact the rest of season four:
Maybe she’s dead, but if she’s alive, that changes the story in some interesting ways moving forward as we go into some of the other stories from the comics that happened after the prison where Judith wasn’t present. It’s fun to think about how she could potentially change those stories if she is alive. She certainly could be dead. There’s a lot of blood in that car seat.
