Carl (Chandler Riggs) will get a friend of sorts it seems in the upcoming season 4 of AMC's The Walking Dead. That companion comes in the form of Vincent Martella who fans may recognize as the voice of Phineas Flynn on Phineas and Ferb.

Vincent Martella Phineas and Ferb Walking Dead

If you thought one of the voices in the recent season 4 teaser for The Walking Dead sounded familiar, you were correct. Vincent Martella, who plays Phineas Flynn on Phineas and Ferb has joined the cast. Martella plays a character named Patrick who becomes friendly with Carl Grimes. "He’s right around Carl’s age,” said Martella. “He’s a little bit older. He’s one of the new people who Carl gets a little closer with. Carl hasn’t really had anybody his age, so now you kind of get to see Carl’s relationship with people his own age and that’s one of the things that Patrick is bringing to the show.”

Without giving any spoilery details away, this casting and new friend for Carl immediately brings to mind a certain chapter from The Walking Dead comic book that's a real defining moment for Carl. However, it's very likely the showrunners are well aware that readers of the comic book will immediately make such an assumption. Given the show's history, there's a high chance that they will try to spin those expectations for a surprise.
