It looks like Season 3 of “The Walking Dead” is going to bring us another new character independent of the comics. He’ll be working with the Governor in Woodbury, and considering how well adding Merle and Daryl to the mix turned out, we say bring him on!
EW got the scoop that Dallas Roberts (The Gray, “Rubicon,” “The Good Wife”) will be stepping in to play Milton, one of the residents of the Governor-ruled community of Woodbury.
“Milton is the details guy,” explains executive producer Robert Kirkman. “He’s the guy that works with the Governor (David Morrissey), who is monitoring all situations and is trying to help the Governor make sense of this world that they’re living in. He’s not exactly a scientist, but he’s a smart guy that is trying to find out how zombies behave. Watching him do his little experiments is going to be a lot of fun.”
According to showrunner Glen Mazzara, in Milton we will see an example of someone finding a way to make himself useful, even if he is not necessarily a physically imposing presence. “We were examining, ‘How do people survive in this apocalyptic world, and what can people contribute?’” says Mazzara, “and we didn’t think it was plausible that every single character we meet is an efficient zombie killer. We just didn’t buy that everyone we know would be active and deft enough to kill every walker. We wanted to show how other people survive, and Dallas has come in and helped us establish that character. He just adds a lot of heart and humanity to Woodbury, which further complicates what that is. That is a real town with real people and real survivors. It’s not necessarily a group of bad guys.”
“The Walking Dead” returns for a third season on Sunday, October 14th.
