This’ll be short and to the point: Entertainment Weekly recently interviewed “Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman, who said a fan-favorite from the comic series will make his/her debut in season three’s mid-season finale on Dec. 2. Kirkman didn’t confirm the character is Tyrese — a former NFL player turned bouncer turned survivor — but he also skirted around the questions:
“I don’t know, man!” says Kirkman. “I don’t know. I got no clue!” While Kirkman is playing coy, rumors have swirled that actor Chad Coleman (best known from The Wire and I Hate My Teenage Daughter) has been spotted in the Atlanta area where the show films and could be playing the comic book fave.
If it is Tyrese, I wonder if he’ll make it out of the prison/Governor story arc alive. He loses his head in issue #46 at the Governor’s hands, but the way the show has been somewhat unpredictable in terms of who goes and who lives (and when), anything is possible.
