AMC's The Walking Dead is still a long ways away from it season 4 premiere.   However, that hasn't stopped bits and pieces of information from regularly surfacing for its upcoming installment.

It was previously reported that former Wire standout Larry Gilliard Jr. would be coming on board to play a series regular. It's now being confirmed that he will be donning the role of Bob Stookey, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

In The Walking Dead comic series, Stookey is an alcoholic loner that puts on a charming façade, and was responsible for saving the life of the Governor following his torture at the hands of Michonne.

Larry, who is 42-years-old, is mostly known for his work playing D'Angelo Barksdale on The Wire, where he actually worked with Chad Coleman (Tyreese).  However, he's also made appearances on shows such as Army Wives, Southland and Gangs of New York.

In other recent WD news, comic book creator/ executive producer Robert Kirkman caught fans off guard when he stated to AMC that the killing off of prison group leader Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) isn't being ruled out.

"Yes, absolutely. We've been saying that no one is safe on this show, and I wouldn't rule out seeing the death of Rick Grimes at almost any point. We really like to keep people guessing, and I could definitely see some interesting stories coming from that.  While Rick has been a pretty solid leader, he's definitely made his share of mistakes."

The Walking Dead will be making its season 4 return on Sunday, October 14 at 9/8c.  Only time will truly tell how the character's fates will ultimately unfold.

Keep checking back for more of the latest details on the popular zombie series. A season 4 teaser clip can be watched below.
