David Morrissey is 'The Walking Dead's' new villain
British actor David Morrissey will join the cast of AMC's "The Walking Dead" next season, the network announced Friday.
Morrissey will play the Governor, the notorious villain from the comic book on which the drama is based, when the series returns for its third season. Morrissey is probably best known for appearing in the TV version of "State of Play" that aired in the U.K.
The third season, which will consist of 16 episodes, is set to begin production this spring. No word yet on a premiere date.
