After adding Michael Cudlitz, Josh McDermitt and Christian Serratos as iconic comic characters Abraham, Eugene and Rosita, respectively, for this season of "The Walking Dead", AMC's hit zombie drama has another fresh face heading into the fray as The Hollywood Reporter has shared that "Greek" alum Andrew J. West has signed on for the second half of the fourth season.
Details are being kept under wraps about West's role, but it is said that his character will be named Gareth and is not directly from the source material but is, instead, a "remix" of someone from the comic series. Gareth will have what sources say is a big presence and play an important character on the drama from showrunner Scott M. Gimple.
West will be credited as a guest star in season four with an option to be promoted to a series regular in the recently announced fifth season. The young actor, whose credits also include "Suburgatory", "Castle", and "CSI", becomes the latest addition to the cast. This season, "The Walking Dead" added Larry Gilliard Jr. (Bob) and promoted Chad Coleman (Tyreese), Sonequa Martin-Green (Sasha) and Emily Kinney (Beth) to series regulars as the show repopulated its ranks following the bloodbath of season three.
Like the debuts for Cudlitz, McDermitt and Serratos' characters, the exact episode in which West will make his first appearance is being kept close to the vest.
