David Morrissey, who plays the terrifying Governor on AMC's The Walking Dead, has been hired to star in another drama pilot for the network called Line Of Sight. This raised the question of whether Morrissey's run as the main villain on the beloved zombie drama will be coming to an end. According to AMC, the answer is, thankfully, no. Morrissey will stay on as The Governor during Dead's fourth season while shooting Line Of Sight.
In Line Of Sight, Morrissey plays a National Transportation Safety Board investigator who survives a plane crash, and then must investigate the cause of the crash that nearly took his life. The pilot is being directed by Jonathan Demme, best known for directing the acclaimed thriller The Silence Of The Lambs.
