According to a new report Michael Cudlitz will be joining Season 4 of The Walking Dead to play Sgt. Abraham Ford.
Search for someone to take up the role of Ford in the new season had been going for a little while now and Cudlitz for one was not anyone’s radar since his commitments to being Officer John Cooper in Southland. However the actor reveals that he was staying low on purpose as to not give away the news.
“I was laying low because [Abraham has] a very iconic look,” explained Cudlitz. “It would be very easy for somebody to put the pieces together if they saw me strolling around [near the show’s set.] So I was staying very close to the hotel. And I didn’t hang out with any of the other cast members”
Speaking on what he plans to bring to the character, Cudlitz added: “Abraham is someone who comes with a lot of emotional baggage. And he’s on a mission. There’s no guarantee of how long or how short it will be, which is one of the things I actually find pretty exciting about the job after being locked into Southland for so many years. But [Abraham] is very important in the comic, so I imagine even if it IS short, it’ll be bright.”
