The Governor

I know the role of The Governor has already been cast, done and dusted.  I can’t help but feel their choice wasn’t a wise one.

The way the character is drawn in the comics – long hair, moustache and the fact he has a bad attitude and is a tough fucker – made me think the only person to fit the role would be Danny Trejo.  It’ll be interesting to see how David Morrissey pulls it off when season 3 airs later this year but Trejo would have been the icing on the cake.

Did you have anyone else in mind for the televised role?

  1. Good damn call! Maybe they’re hiring over at the Walking Dead? You deserve a job for that one. Best show on TV. I am beyond obsessed. I only hope it doesn’t get too corny with the Michonne thing- the end of season 2 was great but I couldn’t help but feel like the whole sword thing could get out-of-hand if those brilliant minded producers let it. I want it to stay realistic (as realistic as a zombie apocalypse can be). Great blog. I’m definitely following! 🙂

    • Haha, thanks…if only getting a cool job was as easy!

      When I first read the comics, before I started watching the show or had even seen a clip of it, I pictured who I’d cast if it were to be a movie/show. Rick, in my mind would have been Viggo Mortensen but when I reached the issue where Rick and co go to Woodbury (issue 27 I think) and we first see The Governor, I immediately thought “Danny Trejo”.

      I agree with your concern over Michonne – I can see her skills possibly being made into a gimmick. Let’s hope she doesn’t have dodgy one-liners to boot! Hopefully, with the introduction of some colourful characters, the show goes even darker than it has been.
