Is it Tyreese? “The Walking Dead” is planning to introduce another popular character from the comic during the Dec. 2nd mid-season finale. Entertainment Weekly seems to think it’s the former NFL linebacker.
Could it be Tyreese (pictured above), a former NFL linebacker who was introduced in issue #7 of the comic and endured a rocky relationship with Rick (and romantic relationships with Carol and Michonne) while serving as Grimes’ right hand man of sorts. “I don’t know, man!” says Kirkman. “I don’t know. I got no clue!” While Kirkman is playing coy, rumors have swirled that actor Chad Coleman (best known from The Wire and I Hate My Teenage Daughter) has been spotted in the Atlanta area where the show films and could be playing the comic book fave.
