THE WIRE'S Seth Gilliam Joins Season 5 Of THE WALKING DEAD
Gilliam is now the third actor from The Wire (along with Chad Coleman as Tyreese and Larry Gilliard Jr. as Bob) to sign on to the show, and he'll be playing an undisclosed character..but one THR believe will turn out to be Preacher Gabriel Stokes. More past the jump.
According to THR, Seth Gilliam has joined season 5 of The Walking Dead as a series regular. His character is listed as "Michael", and he's described as "friendly with a puckish demeanor who also has a haunted side", but this is apparently a dummy name and the site believe the info is not accurate either -- they think he'll actually play a preacher from the comics named Gabriel Stokes, who joins Rick and co. in issue #61. Gilliam played Ellis Carver on all five seasons of The Wire and now becomes the third alum from that acclaimed HBO drama to join The Walking Dead along with Chad Coleman (Tyreese) and Larry Gilliard Jr. (Bob). He can currently be seen on MTV's Teen Wolf. The Walking Dead returns for its fifth season in October.
