    So we officially know who is playing Zeke! Khary Payton snagged the role.

    Walking Dead fans remain on the edge of their seats for news of Negan’s cliffhanger victim, though the characters themselves have new reason to kneel. Khary Payton has officially joined the Season 7 cast in the role of “King” Ezekiel, a fan-favorite comic character with a fiercely protective companion.

    Following Season 6's mysterious introduction of armored men from another community, The new trailer confirms that Khary Payton has officially landed the role of Ezekiel, leader to comic community of “The Kingdom,” which holds court in an abandoned high school. Ezekiel himself is known as a former zookeeper (hence his pet freakin’ tiger Shiva, herself brought to life by a mix of animatronics and CGI), and a new complication in the war between Alexandria, The Hilltop and Negan.​

    He's hot. I didn't expect Ezekiel to be but all is forgiven for the animatron/cgi tiger.

    This guy is the voice of Cyborg on Teen Titans and Teen Titans Go! which my ten-year-old son (and I) watch all the time, lol. He's very attractive. Good looking out, TWD.

    He was the voice of Cyborg. Aw, I like him already.
    I would love it if he's on a stage there.

    I think he is, which is why Carol looked like she was sitting in an auditorium when she said her one line.

    Where did that come from?
    Does this mean we get to see Ezekiel like this?
