THR confirmed that The Walking Dead has cast Tyler James Williams (Go On, Everybody Hates Chris) in its fifth season!
The actor will play a character named Noah, though no further details, including how long the character’s run will last, have been revealed. The news confirms rumors swirling in the community of the zombie hit after Williams was spotted on the Atlanta set last month.
Hmmmm… there’s no Noah in the comics, right? Could this character just be a new addition? What do you think?
Yes he has to be cause I read the comics and Noah is NOT in the comics! And I’m ok with a totally new character 😉
They could just give a fake name to not reveal who he is playing they’ve done that before but I can’t think who from the comics he would be so I’m excited to see a new character
I’m guessing that Noah will be a scout for Alexandra, in the vain of Jesus. New characters are always welcome in my books.
I think so, too!
I’m thinking maybe replacing Aaron.
No he won’t be replacing AARON, he’s at the hospital with beth. AARON will appear in episode 11/12
Dude, just let people speculate. You don’t have to know the answer to EVERYTHING. You know?
Seems like you’re just commenting on everything I post now, huh? The comments are meant for discussion and debate, dont like that then don’t comment.
You’re not being attacked. Don’t be dramatic.
yeah really, that’s what we do on this site, go to one of those spoiler sites to correct everyone.
As long as he is in the vain of Jesus and is not REPLACING Jesus I’m cool with that. Jesus is my 2nd favorite male character (after Rick) and I will be depressed for months if they never bring him to life on the show.
They can’t replace Jesus. He’s just too cool! When he rode out in #128 he was a badass!
Hallelujah! Praise Jesus!
na, jesus got his name because he looked like Jesus Christ, maybe if Noah has long hair – and maybe he will – he could be nicknamed noah cuz he looks like noah. Maybe he will have a long beard or something.
Jesus can not be omitted… I think fans of the comics will riot.
He plays a character that’s at the hospital, that Beth is also at.
Hmm. I wonder how the flashbacks will tie in with the current story?
I was thinking the same thing .. the comic did a awesome flashback around the same time period that i think we are in the show …. i can’t wait 17 more days
not to be a stickler, but Jesus was a scout for the Hilltop, not Alexandria. If he was to be an Alexandria character, maybe Heath? To me though, It seems that Alexandria should not show up till season 6 or so.
Whoops! My mistake. I’m use to him being with Rick. I agree, Alexandria should only appear maybe as a teaser at the end of season 5 and then we see it fully in season 6. Similar to the prison.
Well you’re in for a shock, they’re alreay filming at the alexandria set for episode 13 of season 5. It’s at the gin property in senoia, down the street from where Woodbury is.
Maybe you should let us be in for a shock. This is not your spoiler site man. Chill out.
You didn’t have to read my comment.
yeah, maybe heath, that would be cool.
He’s not playing anyone from the comics Ronan’s remember I told you this a while ago in a different post? He plays a character that is at the hospital with beth
Red shirt !
He’s still alive up to current date which is episode 13 and they’re already at the Alexandria set I sent pictures of to you last month remember? They’re already at Alexandria!
I don’t believe those set leaks are accurate.
That’s reasonable, but they won’t 😉
I doubt he will be around for a while, there are WAY to many high hitters in the squad right now
My option ….. Comic book fans I introduce black Jesus
If anyone remembers, there is a character named “Noah” in The Walking Dead: Survival Instincts Game. Matches his ethnicity and age. I think it is safe to say it is him by the physical features and his name.
Does no one rememer “Noah Cruz” from Survival Instinct? He was a character, who looked exactly the same as Tyler Williams; that Daryl encounter in the beginning of the game. Later; Noah is seen again; at the Cleburne HOSPITAL; where he has been captured by a deranged doctor, who has been residing in the hospital sense the outbreak; under the pretense of attempting to develop a cure through experimentation. Sound familiar?
yeah I remember that game kinda sucked
Daryl Dixon runs into Noah after he had been shot in the shoulder trying to look for supplies by a “crazy sniper” on the roof (which was later found out to be Merle). Anna Turner is also there patching him up. He later leaves with Anna to go to the hospital.
When he arrives, he is kidnapped by a nurse attempting to find a cure, being used as a test subject. There Daryl has the choice of saving him or getting medical supplies from the doctor. If Daryl saves him, Noah will thank him and run off to save Scout. Later you find him in a Local Store where he will join you. If Daryl leaves him and takes the medicine instead, Noah will escape the hospital and hide in a nearby local store, when Daryl enters the store and apologizes to Noah, who says Daryl can make it up to him in the next life, before he begins shouting and screaming loudly to attract walkers in to the store, hoping that the walkers could kill Daryl. Noah is then pulled out through a nearby window and eaten by walkers.
*Note-Don’t put too much stock in the last line, describing his death by walkers. In the game; Noah’s fate is determinate. And depending on what choices you make; he can make it all the way to the Atlanta evacuation at Firesign Stadium(end of game).
If Noah reaches Firesign Stadium, he and another survivor will board the last evacuation helicopter. When Merle informs Daryl that the helicopter pilot has been bitten, Daryl tries to tell Noah but the helicopter takes off. Leaving Noah’s fate unknown.
If Noah wasn’t saved in the hospital, he escaped somehow. When Daryl meets him again and tries to apologize to Noah, he will attract walkers in hope that they kill Daryl.
interesting, looks like him, but I doubt the writers are taking cues from that game. – dick
Tyler Williams is…..Noah Cruz?
Jesus Christ, added enough characters there AMC? Seriously, the size of the cast is getting ridiculous at this point. Methinks we might be in for a bit of a slaughter this season to lessen those numbers.
Slaughter…….YESSSSS!!! TWD needs some killin’ with at LEAST 1 major character to go!
Noah could be Heath. Oh no! Heath was around when Glenn died. Don’t kill Glenn.
Man everybody hates Chris
But not the Bigger one!
Bastet it stinks in here cause your the shit
I seen gleen in a movie film this year on vudu in the cast credits wonder if it him that gets the ax not a big fan of his character but now im like i might cry if he goes crazy since i only watched few episoides from season 1 n 2 3rd season drew me in dont think ill miss another episoide
I think if kirkman turns Daryl gay I’ll be getting a refund
