In an interview with Entertainment weekly, actor Seth Gilliam discusses how he got the role and shooting in the upcoming season of The Walking Dead. Gilliam will be playing Father Gabriel Stokes, a character originally introduced in THE WALKING DEAD #61. He and a whole slew of other characters, some from the comic and some not, will be making their way into this new season of TWD. Most people will recognize Gilliam for his roles in the HBO shows The Wire and Oz. Slowly, but surely, TWD is adding more and more actors from The Wire with Chad Coleman (Tyrese) and Lawrence Gilliard (Bob) joining in previous seasons.

What do you think about Gilliam joining the cast? What do you think his role, early on, in the show will be?

You can really tell the people who are hiring these actors really loved THE WIRE haha.

Walking Dead has 4 actors from the Wire now. Just waiting for OMAR to show on and kick everybody's ass.

Yeah I like when you can you tell the shows that producers like. The producers on Arrow love everyone from Spartacus and have had 4 of the cast on the show so far. This should be cool, Gilliam is also really good on Teen Wolf.
