First Look At Lawrence Gilliard Jr. As 'Bob Stookey' In Season Four Of THE WALKING DEAD
Despite the fact that he was aligned with 'The Governor' in both The Road To Woodbury novel and The Walking Dead comic book, Lawrence Gilliard Jr.'s 'Bob Stookey' will play a very different role in the fourth season of the AMC series. Read on for details and an official photo!
The Wire's Lawrence Gilliard Jr. will play former Army medic 'Bob Stookey' in season four of The Walking Dead, but in the AMC adaptation of the Robert Kirkman penned series, he won't be a resident of Woodbury. Instead, he's found by Daryl Dixon and showrunner Scott M. Gimple explains that his character will be going through some issues. "His backstory is not entirely the same as in the comic and the novel. I think he’s seen things go bad over and over, and winding up in this stable place doesn’t shake him from his experience. He struggles with that." This is a sentiment echoed by Gillard, who adds: "You can see there’s something deeper and darker that’s going on with this character, just from the first episode. We don’t really know what it is. We just know he’s got some issues that he’s dealing with."
