The Walking Dead rumor mill is blowing up the idea that Garret Dillahunt is playing Negan in AMC’s The Walking Dead.

There has been no official statement on the subject from AMC or anyone on the show, the actor has been seemingly teasing the role on Twitter by stating he is reading the comic book source material and also teased the infamous baseball bat of the character. Then he hit up Instagram with a shot of himself covered in blood with some pretty interesting woods behind him.

It’s also been discovered that show runner Scott Gimple and members of The Walking Dead cast have begun following Dillahunt on Twitter, with Gimple only following a small amount of people leading to further evidence that Garret Dillahunt is Negan.

Dillahunt is known for roles on Deadwood, Justified, No Country For Old Men, 12 Years A Slave, Alphas, 4400 and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. He’s a hell of an actor and his playing with us like this is only fueling the idea that he’s on board. only time will tell.
