Meet Bob Stookey...
Ew.com has revealed a new photo from season four of The Walking Dead which introduces new character Bob Stookey, played by Lawrence Gilliard, Jr. (The Wire). The character is in both the comic and The Road to Woodbury novel.
The TV version of Stookey is a former Army medic. Unlike the comics, he does not come from Woodbury. He is found by Daryl Dixon about a week before the events begin in season four.
Showrunner Scott M. Gimple said: "I think he's seen things go bad over and over, and winding up in this stable place doesn't shake him from his experience. He struggles with that."
Gilliard added: "You can see there's something deeper and darker that's going on with this character, just from the first episode. We don't really know what it is. We just know he's got some issues that he's dealing with."
