Shawn Hatosy (Southland) has been cast as a recurring character on AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead. Set in Los Angeles at the start of the zombie outbreak that casts the world of sister show The Walking Dead into apocalyptic ruin, Fear the Walking Dead will focus on a brand new cast of characters a continent away and how they survive the end of the world. This also marks the third Southland star to gain a major role, creating a mini-reunion for the cast. In the series Hatosy will be playing a “well intentioned, but out of his element military man with a soulful disposition.”
In other news for all things zombie it’s been announced that AMC will be invading San Diego Comic-Con Hall H on Friday, July 10th with both The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead. A formal announcement is expected for Fear the Walking Dead‘s summer premiere at that time. Stay tuned to Legion of Leia for more news as it develops!
