One-handed Merle Dixon (Michael Rooker) will not morph into The Governor.
Britisher David Morrissey (“State of Play”) will play “The Governor” in the 16-episode third season of “The Walking Dead,” AMC has confirmed.
The Governor, who rules the Woodbury survivors, will presumably serve as lawman Rick’s chief adversary once Shane Walsh gets eaten.
I’ve seen the next episode of “The Walking Dead” and must say it’s a marked improvement over the last two installments.
It’s the first episode in a long time that doesn’t take place immediately after the prior episode. (It’s also missing half the cast; Hershel, Carol, Carl, Daryl, T-Dawg, Glenn and Dale all sit this week out.)
