    He's the baddest of baddies played by the incredible Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

    How can we hate him when there is so much to love!

    This thread is to talk about motherf*cking Negan and the actor who portrays him.

    Gifs and images welcome (oh yes indeed)!

    I am going to be so incredibly conflicted by Negan.

    I only have a Cliff's Notes education as far as Negan goes, but I came across this meme on Facebook and it made me smile...

    Although I seriously doubt Daryl is going anywhere.

    You know....casting JDM truly was a genius move. He will make Negan a character you love to hate because he's freaking gorgeous and has more charisma in his pinkie than many actors have in their whole body. I cannot wait to see him go head to head with Andy/Rick. It's going to be freaking electric.

    I have no doubt JDM is going to fucking crush this role. I'm only worried about Gimple and co. fucking up the writing. Hell, even if they do I think he has a good chance of making it work.

    That's my fear as well. Negan has such a colorful vocabulary in the comic, it's gonna be a challenge pulling him off with a censor bar.

    I never liked Negan in the comic. Saw him as a stupid buffoon, like he was the mean jock in high school. When it comes to bad guys, I like smarts. I think they did that with the Gov. I found TV Gov much more compelling and scarier than Comic Gov. I hope they do the same with Negan.

    (Can I just say that it's adorable JDM mentions his mama just like AL does!)

    Jeffrey Dean Morgan Says Negan on The Walking DeadIs a "Game Changer"—But What About The Good Wife?
    [​IMG]

    Jeffrey Dean Morgan's mom had the same reaction as you when you heard he was joining The Walking Dead: What does this mean for JDM and The Good Wife?

    Here's what he had to say on Late Night with Seth Meyers: "I can tell you sort of what's been announced, that is I'm joining the show...I play a character named Negan, and if you're a fan of the comic book, you'll know who Negan is," Morgan said.

    "I am. That's the real deal right there," Seth Meyers replied. And he's right, Negan is the real deal. He's a ruthless leader who makes life hell for Rick Grimes and Co. and even kills a fan-favorite character, the same character AMC wanted you to think was dead for a few episodes. Yep, Negan, in the comics, killed Glenn.

    I'm just really excited to see him interact with the cast and if Daryl does live to see season 7, well Negan should be able to overshadow Daryl's popularity.

    He seems to be a big fan and so happy to be playing this role, I think he was the perfect choice. I can't wait to see Negan on my screen!

    My hubby so classy :rolleyes: Salt and pepper beards are the business.

    They better not try and play me with only showing him at the very end of 6B and I have to wait all god damn summer for his return. If they think Daryl fans are crazy..

    JDM really was the perfect choice. I honestly wasn't that excited about Negan's arrival but after seeing this casting choice and that bat swing that was leaked...Yes. Please.

    This is going to be very interesting.

    My body is 100% ready for Negan. I've been in love with JDM since he was John "Sir" Winchester, and he's fucking perfect for this role. I'm still Team Rick/Family, but every time Negan gets on the scene, I know I'm gonna be like:

    JDM is not at all who I was expecting to be casted as Negan.

    Needless to say, I'm fucking hyped as fuck, motherfucker!

    Just as DM was with The Governor, I'm gonna bet JDM will be the same with Negan; he's gonna be perfect.

    Whoever's casting at twd, they're doing a fantastic job.

    Oh man the skies opened and the angels started singing when I first read the casting. I was INSTANTLY no longer nervous about how Negan was going to be handled. JDM is amazing and he's going to knock it out of the park(teehee). He's able to allow me to appreciate his looks while still disliking characters he plays. A+

    Negan is going to be an issue for me. I didn't get to his part in the comics, but I know he is the big bad wolf. I NEVER go for the big bad wolf! I am too much of a Rick stan to like anything that causes him grief. But I absolutely love Jeffery Dean Morgan since I first laid eyes on him in P.S. I Love You. I do however, though it will pain me greatly, want them to go all out with Negan. I do not want humanizing backstory, I want him to be a villain because he likes being a villain. That is it. JDM is going to be so amazing. I can;t wait.
