In the comics, Negan is the notorious foul-mouthed leader of a group called the Saviors. They use fear to rule over Negan’s community and enslave women to be his many “wives.”
The Saviors were ordered to attack neighbouring communities if an on-going ransom wasn’t paid and savagely beat Glenn to death in front of the surviving members of Rick Grime’s unwavering group.
What ensued was an all out war sure to play out in Season 7. He’s most notably known for his barbed-wire bat, Lucille, who plays a huge role in the story.
AMC know how important it is to cast Negan well. The character has a unique personality and a sense of humour that can only really shine if played by the right person.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan being cast shows just how much faith AMC has in him over other actors who were rumoured for the role, like Timothy Olyphant, Matt Dillon, and Garret Dillahunt.
If you are not familiar with this Character, by the end of this season you will be, Compared to the Governor, Negan is an object of blunt force to be reckoned with, where as the Governor almost had a finesse to his approach.
What are your thoughts on the casting choice for Negan and who will fall to the deadly Lucille?
