The Walking Dead has recruited The Wire alum Chad Coleman to play the key role of Tyreese, TVLine has confirmed.

In the Walking Dead comics, Tyreese was a prominent member of the survivors and served as Rick’s second in command following Shane’s death.  The character’s arrival (rumored to be in this season’s eighth episode) comes as Rick prepares to do battle with David Morrissey’s Governor.

I haven’t seen the show, but I know plenty people who are huge fans of this series; hopefully this casting meets your approval!
