Walking Dead Casts Eugene, Abraham Roles

Two pivotal characters from Robert Kirkman’s long-running comic have been cast in AMC’s zombie drama “The Walking Dead”.

Josh McDermitt (“Retired at 35”) will play former high school science teacher Dr. Eugene Porter and Michael Cudlitz (“Southland”) will play sports coach and Army Sgt. Abraham Ford. The roles, announced this weekend at the New York Comic Con, are both series regulars.

The pair travel with Rosita (Christian Serratos), and the trio cross paths with Rick as they make their way to Washington with Eugene claiming to know what caused the zombie outbreak.

The arrival of the characters also opens the door for the series to explore locations outside the prison. It has not been indicated which episode these characters will enter in.
