Walking Dead: Jeffrey Dean Morgan Plus 3 Others Promoted to Series Regular

NewsProjectsThe Walking DeadTV

Negan’s going to be extra cocky now.

The Walking Dead has promoted the bat-wielding baddie’s portrayer, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, to a full-fledged series regular ahead of Season 7, TVLine has confirmed. The AMC smash has also upped Tom Payne (Team Rick’s Jesus), Austin Amelio (Team Savior’s Dwight) and Xander Berkeley (Team Hilltop’s Gregory) to the regular ranks. All four joined the show in Season 6 as recurring guest stars.

The Hollywood Reporter, which broke the news of the quartet’s status change, notes that The Walking Dead will now enter Season 7 with a record 20 series regulars, although that number will quickly drop down to 19 once Negan’s victim is identified.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan on why ‘Walking Dead’ fans should root for Negan

InterviewsNewsThe Walking Dead

Sunday night on “The Walking Dead,” a newcomer named Negan bashed someone to death with a barbed-wire baseball bat. Yet actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan doesn’t necessarily think of his character as a villain.

“People say he’s this psychotic guy,” Morgan, 49, told reporters on Monday. “I never looked at him like that. I think there’s a lot of similarities between him and Rick [Andrew Lincoln]. If we had been following Negan from day one, the audience would be rooting for him.”

Besides, Negan only offs one person with his trusty bat, named Lucille. Says Morgan with a laugh: “Rick just killed 20 of Negan’s men. I feel Rick’s getting off really easy here.”

The new baddie’s first appearance had been drummed for several episodes, and it was obvious his introduction would have to make a splash.

Yet Morgan — who shot his big “Walking Dead” scene while on break from “The Good Wife,” where he plays sexy investigator Jason Crouse — had little time to prepare: He got his lines a couple of days before stepping in front of the cameras.

“I had to make my decisions right then and there,” he says. “In Negan, you have something that people want to follow. A little bit of that is fear, a little bit is charisma, a little bit is a sense of humor. I tried to mash all that into one character on the fly. It was like doing a play — you’re kind of onstage. [Showrunner Scott] Gimple said he’s the star of his own movie. I tried to take that and run with it.”

Many fans have been upset by the episode ending on a cliffhanger: The scene is shot from the POV of the person who died, and we don’t know the victim’s identity.

“I didn’t know about the cliffhanger until I watched the show,” Morgan says. “The death of the person will kick off Season 7, and obviously, who is on the receiving end of Lucille will be a big part. I understand the fans’ frustration, I get that. That said, I have to trust these writers, and they know what they’re doing.”

Morgan’s been familiar with the series’ source material for a while. A few years ago, fans at Comic-Con actually thrust a copy of “The Walking Dead” issue 100 — which introduced Negan — in his hands and told him that “when they get to this guy, you should be this guy.”

Now he gets to dream up a backstory for “this guy”: “I feel like he used to be a used-car salesman and he’s survived. What has he done to get there? We’ve seen what Rick has done to get there and keep his people alive. There’s probably strong parallel lines with Negan and his story.”

Still, even taking into account different perspectives and all, it’s clear that Morgan’s character hardly qualifies as a Care Bear.

“We’re going to see Negan do some stuff in the next year that’s not going to be very nice, and I may have to approach that from a different angle,” the actor concedes. “I realize Negan is a bad guy, but he’s one of the most well-rounded villains we’re going to see on any screen in a long time.

“He’s got a lot of stories yet to come. It’s going to be an interesting road.”

Jeffrey joins ‘The Walking Dead’ as villain Negan

NewsTV

The Walking Dead is about to get its biggest bad guy yet.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan has been cast as Negan on the zombie show, AMC confirmed to USA TODAY. Negan is a character that fans of the original Dead comics know very well, a nasty villain who leads a group called The Saviors. In the comics Negan and the Saviors subjugate the Alexandrians in exchange for protection against the Wolves. AMC wouldn’t give any further details on when or for how long Morgan would appear on the show, but considering that the Wolves and the Alexandrians have already clashed this season, fans may speculate that Negan will show up soon.

Supernatural: Jeffrey Dean Morgan Wants to Return

NewsSupernatural

Count Jeffrey Dean Morgan among those Supernatural fans anxious for a John Winchester resurrection.

The actor — who last appeared as Sam and Dean’s late pa nearly a decade ago — tells TVLine that he wants back in bad. “I would absolutely love to come back,” he says. “There’s no official talk that I know of, but I’m always in contact with Jared [Padalecki] and Jensen [Ackles] — they’re very good friends of mine”.

With me it’s always been about scheduling,” adds Morgan, who just booked a season-long stint on The Good Wife. “But hopefully we can find a little time and they’ll write something that I can do. It would be a great joy to go back and play with those guys.

And Morgan only has one small request of The CW: he wants Ackles to helm his comeback episode. “I would love to have Jensen direct me, honestly.” he says. “I think that would be a very cool deal. That’s always what I’ve been pushing for.

Creatively, there has never been a better time for Papa Winchester to resurface. At Comic-Con last weekend, executive producer Andrew Dabb hinted that Season 11 (bowing Oct. 7) will dredge up “some things” from Sam and Dean’s past that “we haven’t dealt with in a long time but will have some really interesting repercussions for both guys.”

Dabb later added that Morgan’s return was inevitable. “To me, it’s not if he comes back, it’s when. When’s the right time? When it’s going to be for maximum impact? What you don’t want to do is bring a character like that back and waste the opportunity.”

Jeffrey Dean Morgan Joins ‘The Good Wife’ As New Regular

NewsProjectsThe Good WifeTV

Meet Kalinda’s replacement. Jeffrey Dean Morgan will join The Good Wife as a series regular for the CBS drama’s upcoming seventh season. He will play Alex, a calm, experienced hourly investigator whom Alicia (Julianna Margulies) hires.

The Good Wife, from CBS TV Studios, ended Season 6 with two vacancies in its regular cast after the departures of original cast member and fan favorite Archie Panjabi, who played intrepid investigator Kalinda Sharma, and recent addition Matthew Goode, who stepped down after a year as a regular. Morgan already is in the CBS/CBS Studios family: He is a regular on their summer drama series Extant, which he joined in the current second season as the male lead opposite Halle Berry. Extant got off to a slow Season 2 start but Morgan could in theory juggle both series as he remains a regular on Extant. (That show only films 13 episodes a year.)

On The Good Wife, which returns with originals on October 4, he joins fellow regulars Margulies, Christine Baranski, Matt Czuchry, Alan Cumming and Zach Grenier.

“We’ve loved and admired Jeffrey Dean Morgan for years, and we were thrilled to hear that Julianna did too, so it was a no-brainer to ask him to join our troupe,” said The Good Wife creators/executive producers Robert and Michelle King.

Morgan also recently starred in the History miniseries Texas Rising and toplined Starz’s period drama series Magic City.
