The Walking Dead - Season 5 - Tyler James Williams Joins Cast

The zombie drama has recruited Go On and Everybody Hates Chris alum Tyler James Williams, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Details on just whom Williams is playing are being kept under wraps, but THR can reveal his character is named Noah. It's unclear which episode Williams will make his debut in or if he'll be around in a guest, recurring or regular capacity.

The news comes following weeks of speculation after the actor was spotted on the Atlanta set of The Walking Dead.

The Noah character does not exist in Robert Kirkman's comics, on which the AMC series is based. The TV adaptation has previously featured a character named Noah — played by Parker Wierling — who was a teenage resident of the Governor-led Woodbury and killed during the camp's battle with Rick and company.
