The Walking Dead casts Xander Berkeley

Xander Berkeley The Walking DeadAnother new character will be joining the sixth season of The Walking Dead.

TVLine reports that Xander Berkeley (24, The Mentalist) has been added to the cast of the second half of The Walking Dead season 6. Berkeley will be playing a character from the Kirkman comics, named Gregory.

According to TVLine, Gregory is described as “the leader of the Hilltop Colony, a coward to the core, and a total nightmare for Maggie and Rick.” We won’t reveal any spoilers here, but his character apparently has some link with the villainous Negan (played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan.) So it’s clear that he will be causing some trouble for Rick’s group in the near future.

The Walking Dead season 6 will return on February 14, 2016 on AMC.
