Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s long list of genre credits let the boys of Supernatural have a bit of fun with their dad busting skulls on The Walking Dead, but the two crossing paths onscreen is another matter. A familiar foe popped up on last night’s Supernatural, connecting universes with logic more twisted than barbed wire.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan
The Walking Dead has had no shortage of controversy since the brain-bashing arrival of Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan, though the series may have inadvertently stoked racial tension as well. U.K. suppliers apparently pulled official merchandise over accusations of racism, though Morgan himself dismisses the controversy with “people are stupid.”
The Walking Dead hasn’t had much time for the major Saviors in its first two 2017 episodes, but that all changes with next Sunday’s “Hostiles and Calamities.” Not only are Dwight and the others finally catching up with Daryl’s escape, but Negan and his newest hostage are officially inbound.
We’ve come a long way from The Walking Dead teasing Negan’s Season 6 finale debut, and it’s of interest to look back at some of the early rumors for casting. Among the names floated were Justified and Santa Clarita Diet star Timothy Olyphant, though the actor now claims he’d never had anything to do with it.
‘The Walking Dead’ Season 7 wants to “Sing Me a Song” of Negan’s bizarre fascination with Carl, but is Season 7 anywhere closer to finally fighting back? Or at least calling out Spencer for his whining? Find out in our full review!
It’s safe to say that the addition of Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan to The Walking Dead has been a controversial one; strong actor, but in a role weighing on viewers. Morgan has time yet to flesh out Negan’s nuances, confirming not only his return for Season 8, but also explaining some of the mysterious leaks that cropped up around his entrance.
Four episodes into The Walking Dead Season 7, and little has happened beyond Negan inflicting the worst of horrors on even those who survived the deadly premiere. Things may get worse before they get better, as the full set of titles and synopses through midseason tease that Negan won’t stay away from Alexandria for long.
‘The Walking Dead’ makes Season 7 too real performing “Service” to Negan’s victory, but does the first trip to Alexandria spark a sense of rebellion, or languish in grief? And will anyone tell poor Tara about Denise? Find out in our full review!
‘The Walking Dead’ chows down on Season 7 with a stay in “The Cell,” but does our first trip to The Sanctuary justify Negan’s cruelty, or taste like dog food? How make we of Norman Reedus’ first nude scene? Find out in our full review!
Jeffrey Dead Morgan is something of a TV vagabond, to the point that few expected to see him in another horror-tinged genre series while Supernatural was still airing. Now that the erstwhile papa Winchester has found a home cracking skulls on The Walking Dead, however, Supernatural star Jensen Ackles is having a bit of fun over Twitter.
