‘Wire’ actor Larry Gilliard Jr. landed a pivotal comic book character in the awaited return of The Walking Dead season 4.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, who first learned the news, Gillard has booked the series regular role of Bob, a former Army medic who winds up becoming a key character for the Governor.
Gilliard will play the series regular part of Bob Stookey, a former Army medic who is deeply haunted by his past — both before and after the apocalypse. He’s a loner, though he maintains a charming yet self-deprecating façade. In the Walking Dead comics, Bob Stookey was a Woodbury resident (and alcoholic) responsible for saving the Governor’s life after he was tortured by Michonne.
