Larry Gilliard Jr.'s Real Role In Season Four Of THE WALKING DEAD Revealed

It was recently rumoured that The Wire's Larry Gilliard Jr. had signed up to play 'Roy Stark' in the upcoming fourth season of The Walking Dead. Well, his role in the AMC series has now been confirmed as has the character from the comics he will actually be playing...

As we previously speculated, 'Roy Stark' is indeed 'Bob Stookey'; the alcoholic former army medic who saves the life of the Governor after a brutal attack from a revenge driven Michonne. The AMC series has so far taken a huge departure from the comic books when it comes to how they handled the town of Woodbury, so it seems likely that the character will have a slightly different role on the show. Regardless, he's still described as being, "deeply haunted by his past" and "a loner" who "maintains a charming yet self-deprecating and confident façade". It has also been confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter that The Wire's Larry Gilliard Jr. has been cast in the role.
