The Walking Dead returns to AMC for its third season on October 14, and it's going to be introducing the Governor and Michonne (officially), along with at least one other new character to the franchise, and that role has been cast.
Walking Dead Season 3 Spoilers
According to Entertainment Weekly, Dallas Roberts has joined the cast as Milton, who lives in Woodbury, which the Governor rules. Executive producer Robert Kirkman describes Milton as "the details guys." Milton is the one who "works with the Governor, who is monitoring all situations and is trying to help the Governor make sense of this world that they're living in." While "he's not exactly a scientist," Milton is "a smart guy that is trying to figure out how zombies behave." Part of the character of Milton will be "little experiments," which Kirkman describes as "a lot of fun" to watch. Basically, it sounds like Milton is the kind of character you would expect to find in Woodbury and someone who could end up being trouble for the survivors, depending on his choices when it comes down to it.
However, Glen Mazzara did say that Milton is a character who will show what someone who can't just go around killing zombies is doing and is a character who "adds a lot of heart and humanity to Woodbury." This shows that Woodbury "is a real town with real people and real survivors...not necessarily a group of bad guys." However, that doesn't mean that things can't change as The Walking Dead season 3 progresses. And with the Governor ruling Woodbury, things are going to get exciting. The trailer that aired at Comic-Con (below) gave glimpses at the Governor and Woodbury and Rick and the other survivorsÂ—and just what happens when those two meet. Which side will someone like Milton end up on when it comes down to it? Could he end up being someone who tries to join the other survivors, or will he stick with the Governor, even though he's described as someone who gives Woodbury "heart and humanity"?
