RUMOR: Negan Has Been Cast On THE WALKING DEAD

Jon Hamm and Kevin Durand were rumored to be the front runners to play Negan on The Walking Dead for a LONG time, however, a new report states that the role has been awarded to another actor. Continue reading to find out who could be wielding Lucille.

Rumor has it, Garret Dillahunt ("Justified," "Deadwood") has won the role of Negan on The Walking Dead. As readers of the comic book series know, the TV show is not a direct adaptation of the comic but still loosely follows the comic's progression.  These same readers know that the TV show is quickly approaching the point in the comic where Negan will be introduced.  At the very least, AMC and The Walking Dead showrunners have to be actively searching for someone capable of wickedly swinging a barbed-wire bat.  According to Uproxx, that search is over as Dillahunt has landed the role based on some clues they've uncovered via Twitter.

Can you picture Dillahunt in the role? Did you have your own pick? Until this is confirmed by AMC or someone from the show, keep your salt handy.
