“The Walking Dead” will be welcoming two more characters into the Governor’s storyline in the upcoming episode, “Dead Weight.” Though they’re new to the AMC zombie series, viewers will likely recognize the two actors from their previous TV roles.
Both new cast members can be seen in the above Zap2it exclusive photo. Kirk Acevedo, best known for his roles in “Fringe,” “Band of Brothers” and “Oz,” plays Mitch (left) in the new episode. Joining him is “Dollhouse” and “Vegas” alum Enver Gjokaj as Pete (right).
It’s unclear what role they play exactly, but it seems likely they have joined with the Governor’s men after they parted ways with the former villain. Standing behind the two men are the Governor’s newfound family that he became close with in last week’s “Live Bait.”
The synopsis for “Dead Weight” reads: “A new and scary chapter is unfolding at a camp outside the prison. Will peace be attainable with the addition of new members?” The episode airs Nov. 24 at 9 p.m. on AMC.
