A new character will be added to the mix on The Walking Dead this fall, as EW.com has the scoop on a fellow named Milton, played by Dallas Roberts (Rubicon, The Good Wife). A brand new creation (as in not pulled from the comic books), Milton is one of the residents of Woodbury, the community ruled over by The Governor (David Morrissey).

Walking Dead comic book creator and TV series executive producer Robert Kirkman tells EW, “Milton is the details guy. He’s the guy that works with the Governor, who is monitoring all situations and is trying to help the Governor make sense of this world that they’re living in. He’s not exactly a scientist, but he’s a smart guy that is trying to find out how zombies behave. Watching him do his little experiments is going to be a lot of fun.”
Walking Dead showrunner Glen Mazzara notes to EW that not every person would turn into a badass, zombie-killer in this world and with Milton, “We wanted to show how other people survive, and Dallas has come in and helped us establish that character. He just adds a lot of heart and humanity to Woodbury, which further complicates what that is. That is a real town with real people and real survivors. It’s not necessarily a group of bad guys.”
