Fear the Walking Dead: Dougray Scott Joins Spinoff's Season 2 Cast

Fear the Walking Dead Season 2

Dougray Scott has booked a (one way?) ticket to the zombie apocalypse.

The Hemlock Grove and Desperate Housewives vet has signed on to join Fear The Walking Dead‘s upcoming second season in a recurring role, TVLine has learned exclusively.

An AMC rep confirmed his casting, but declined to provide details on his role. One theory: He could be playing Casey, a character described in a recent casting breakdown as “a decent man who believes in civility” and “is confident in an unexpected position of authority.” Loyal to his family, Casey “is still learning to be a leader. He regrets but accepts the necessary violence for a new vision.”

The Walking Dead spinoff’s 15-episode second season will be split into two parts, with the first half (seven episodes) launching Sunday, April 10 (9/8c on AMC) and the second half airing “later in 2016.”
