    Wow. TWD people are really obsessed with former cast members of the wire, aren’t they?

  2. ravenscallywag says:

    Clearly going to be the Reverend…Gabriel

  3. alistaircrane says:

    Oh no! I guess this means The Vet is leaving Teen Wolf? My guess is he will be killed off during the first half of Season 4.

    • Mike R. says:

      My guess is by the time TWD starts filming all 12 episode of TW season 4 will have concluded filming, if Gillam survives throughout the entirety of TWD season 5, however, we may be looking at a decreased role in season 5 of TW, but I doubt he’ll die on Teen Wolf.

  4. Tran says:

    Seth Gilliam was so great on The Wire. One of my Top 10 Best TV dramas of all time.

  5. Jax&Juice's Girl says:

    Oh Sh*t keep it coming Walking Dead! Bring on Dominic West aka Jimmy Mcnulty OR Idris Elba aka Stringer Bell! The Wire one of the BEST shows on HBO along w/ The Sapranos.

  6. Don says:

    Cute man! Approved.

    But they better not kill that other Wire alumn. Bob.

  7. Heathers says:

    I’d love to see Dominic West on TWD too! And Idris!

  8. dancmh says:

    I really like him on Teen Wolf. I’m glad he’ll still be recurring on the show.

  9. Derek Johnson says:

    Father Stokes is the obvious pick, and from what’s been written about him, I’d expect he’ll be on the show at some point. Another possibility could be Derek, the leader of a group of scavengers that are first encountered in Issue 75.

  10. Freddie says:

    We finally have our Father Gabriel! Now we just got to find Alexandria Safe Zone.
