'The Wire' actor in talks for Roy Stark
iDigitalTimes reported on Monday, April 22 that actor Lawrence Gilliard Jr. is in talks to play Roy Stark, a new series regular. The actor previously appeared on the crime drama "The Wire" along with Chad Coleman who portrays Tyreese.
A recent casting call for the character is described as "a former army medic" and has trouble adjusting to life after the service. Stark is a bit of a lone wolf and many fans believe the character is based on Abraham Ford in the comic book series. Ford is a newcomer to Rick's group who has also served in the army.
