Michael Cudlitz Cast As 'Abraham' In THE WALKING DEAD; First Official Still Revealed
Well, that search we mentioned didn't take too long! Just minutes after it was revealed that Josh McDermitt will play 'Eugene' in season four of The Walking Dead, it has now been revealed that Michael Cudlitz will play 'Abraham', and we have the firs official still of him to prove it!
Despite the fact that Michael Cudlitz has been shooting on location in Georgia for weeks now, it has somehow remained under wraps that the Southland actor will be playing 'Abraham' in the fourth season of The Walking Dead (hence why we just ran a story in which even The Hollywood Reporter thought the hunt was still on for someone to take on this role). "I was laying low because [Abraham has] a very iconic look," explains Cudlitz. "It would be very easy for somebody to put the pieces together if they saw me strolling around [near the show's set.] So I was staying very close to the hotel. And I didn’t hang out with any of the other cast members" As for what he's bringing to the character and how long he hopes to stick around, the actor added: "Abraham is someone who comes with a lot of emotional baggage. And he’s on a mission. There’s no guarantee of how long or how short it will be, which is one of the things I actually find pretty exciting about the job after being locked into Southland for so many years. But [Abraham] is very important in the comic, so I imagine even if it IS short, it’ll be bright." How do you guys feel about this latest casting addition?
