TV News: Who, Dead, Poor, Craig, SHIELD

Doctor Who
Michelle Gomez has revealed that she’s willing to keep playing the villainous ‘Missy’ on “Doctor Who” for some time to come. Speaking with io9, she revealed:

“I am having so much fun with this character, probably a little too much fun. Occasionally in a career, you get one or two chances to just really enjoy your work and have it not feel like work-even though it is hard work. It’s just a blessing. I’ll play her as long as I can, as long as I’m standing. I’d play her in a wheelchair. I love Missy. She’s great fun.” The new season of “Doctor Who” returns this Saturday.

The Walking Dead
Xander Berkeley (“24”) has reportedly been cast in a key recurring role in the second half of the upcoming sixth season of AMC’s “The Walking Dead”.

The character’s name is being kept under wraps but is NOT the infamous comic villain Negan despite sharing some of the same characteristics like narcissism and a huge ego. [Source: TV Line]
