David Morrissey — aka the Governor on The Walking Dead — has been cast in a new drama pilot for AMC, which may fuel speculation that his character will finally meet his maker in season four.
But don’t despair, Dead-heads: The cable network insists that Morrissey will do double duty on the zombie drama and Line of Sight, which will focus on a National Transportation Safety Board investigator (Morrissey) who survives a mysterious plane crash. AMC told Deadline that both are produced in Atlanta, which will make it possible for the actor to work two jobs. Line Of Sight is from Blake Masters (2 Guns) and director Jonathan Demme.
Morrissey appeared alongside other cast members at Dead’s Comic-Con panel last month in San Diego. His character wasn’t featured in the trailer, though. Hmm…
The fourth season of The Walking Dead begins on Oct. 13.
