Walking Dead universe actors Garret Dillahunt and Jayson Warner Smith star in a new film, Where the Crawdads Sing, set to release in July 2022.

Garret Dillahunt, who portrayed the soft-spoken and often hilarious John Dorie on Fear the Walking Dead in seasons 4-6, has been a busy guy since leaving the series. We saw him in the Netflix original film Army of the Dead, and one of his new projects, Ambulance, will release in April 2022.

Jayson Warner Smith played the Savior named Gavin in seasons 7 and 8. Gavin was a high-ranking Savior under Negan’s leadership and was one of four outpost leaders. He has been very busy since leaving the series, and one role he most recently played was in the Netflix original series Outer Banks.
