The Walking Dead - Season 9 - Casting Newsreel *Updated 20th July 2018*



20th July 2018 - Rhys Coiro, Zach McGowan, Brett Butler & John Finn Join Cast

For starters, Brett Butler (yes, she of Grace Under Fire fame) will arrive as a "salt-of-the-earth" type named Tammy Rose, and John Finn will portray her husband Earl who also happens to be a blacksmith. They'll both belong to the Hilltop community, and it sounds like Earl will have quite a useful skill to offer indeed.

Meanwhile, actors Rhys Coiro (Entourage) and Zach McGowan (The 100, Black Sails) will appear as Jed and Justin, respectively, two characters that are each uncooperative Saviors (big surprise that there'd be some Saviors with attitude still lingering around, eh?). Contrast them with Dan Fogler's (Balls of Fury) character Luke, a survivor who is apparently keen on making friends for the sake of safety. We can tell Luke's a smart one already.

20th July 2018 - Nadia Hilker Joins Cast

“The 100” actress Nadia Hilker has been cast as Magna for “The Walking Dead” Season 9, TheWrap has learned.

Magna is a character introduced in the comics after the post-All Out War time jump, and is described by AMC as “a tough as nails survivor who has been living on the road.” Magna is first introduced in the comics in issue 127.




20th July 2018 - Samantha Morton Cast as Alpha; Leader of the Whisperers

The Walking Dead has cast its new big bad for season nine: Samantha Morton, who joins the cast as Alpha, leader of the Whisperers, one of the most iconic villains from the comic books on which the AMC drama is based. Executive producer and Walking Dead comic book creator Robert Kirkman announced the news Friday at San Diego Comic-Con. 

Alpha is the leader of the Whisperers, a ruthless woman who is bald beneath her zombie mask, charged with presiding over the rest of her people. In the comics, she's close with two specific members of the clan: Beta, her enormous lieutenant, and Lydia, her daughter who becomes a love interest for Carl. Given Chandler Riggs' exit from the series in season eight, any and all future storylines involving Lydia will clearly need to undergo some alterations.




19th July 2018 - Dan Fogler Joins Cast

Dan Fogler has had run-ins with some fairly fanciful creatures, but he’ll now have to face the undead. The actor, who stars in the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them films with Eddie Redmayne, has landed a role on The Walking Dead season 9, EW has confirmed.

Fogler’s character is being kept under wraps, but perhaps we’ll learn more about him from the show’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con.




19th July 2018 - Eleanor Matsuura Joins Cast

Matsuura is known for several roles, including Epione in Wonder Woman, Hannah Santo in MI-5, and Baron Chau in Into the Badlands. She is now The Walking Dead's Yumiko, multiple independent sources have confirmed to ComicBook.com.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
