Another announcement was made at Wizard World’s 2015 Comic-Con International that will have an impact on The Walking Dead’s sixth season.  Along with the announcement that former Emmy award winner Merritt Wever would be added to the show’s cast, it was more subtly announced that Ethan Embry would be joining the ranks of the survivors on the show as well.

While Embry hasn’t quite won any Emmys for his efforts, he has had several great roles in his past.

Here are some of the major projects that Ethan Embry has been a part of:

    As you can see from the video, the addition of Ethan Embry could be a major boost to The Walking Dead’s cast.  At this time, it’s unknown as to the role that he will play, but if he plays someone with a little bit of a darker side, his presence could be one that could turn a lot of heads.

    On Twitter, Embry knows what it’s like to be accepted into the family of The Walking Dead and considers this his “adoption” of sorts.  Here is his tweet about it:

    We at Undead Walking would like to congratulate Ethan Embry on joining The Walking Dead and look forward to seeing him when the popular zombie survival drama returns to the television screens this October on AMC.
