‘The Walking Dead’ May Have Cast A ‘Deadwood’ Actor As The Villainous Negan

(Some spoilers ahead for comic and TV fans)

This should be considered as just a rumor for now, but it’s a convincing one. Let’s just get what you came here for out of the way, and not bury the lede: Garret Dillahunt (Justified, Deadwood) may have been cast as the terrible, no-good, murderous Negan in AMC’s The Walking Dead. The general consensus is that Negan’s arrival is imminent, and it wouldn’t be shocking at all if the barbed wire bat-swinging baddie finally made his appearance this season during the finale.

Negan The Walking Dead

In Robert Kirkman’s comic book, he’s the man who ultimately kills (SPOILER) Glenn, crushing his skull with his weapon of choice: Lucille. Since Glenn may already be dead (but, then again, he may not), we might not see that scene in the TV series, which is a shame, because it would have intensified Negan’s threat. Maybe, he’ll just have to kill someone else. (I’m looking at you, Carl.)

So, why the belief that Dillahunt has been cast in the role? Well, there’s this tweet that went out earlier this week, for starters:

That’s the collection of The Walking Dead that introduces Negan — it’s not much to go on, but then, as The Spoiling Dead Fans pointed out, there’s the fact that TWD stars John Carroll Lynch (Eastman) and Alanna Masterson (Tara) began following Dillahunt on Twitter. Perhaps the most convincing Twitter evidence comes in the form of Scott M. Gimple — TWD showrunner — following Dillahunt, when he only follows a little over 300 people. If none of that has convinced you, then take a gander at the halo emoticon that the actor tweeted out after a coy response to whether Lucille has any significance to him:

Dillahunt plays up the comedy on Raising Hope, but on Deadwood and Justified, he showed the kind of villainous chops that would suit Negan just fine.

What do you think? Would he be a convincing Negan?

Wondered What Happened To The Dwarves After The Hobbit Ended

  You've Already Seen A Few Of Them In The Fellowship Of The Ring!

The Hobbit

Whether you’re in the group that loves or in the group that hates the Hobbitmovies, there’s no denying that these were pretty big films that made A LOT of money! Even though the movie was called The Hobbit, most of the attention was focused on the dwarves and their epic quest to retake the Lonely Mountain from the dragon, Smaug. We spent three movies watching these dwarves fight for what was rightfully theirs, so it’s hard not to get attached to some of them. But have you ever wondered what happened to the dwarves after all was said and done? Dwarves live for a while, so where were these characters during The Lord of the Rings trilogy? The answers for some of them might not be exactly what you wanted to hear! Let’s dig in!

The Fate Of The Dwarves

Oin

Forty-eight years after being settled in the Lonely Mountain, Oin made his way back to Moria to reclaim the realm for the Dwarves. It was five years later that the orcs attacked, and when he could not escape over the Bridge of Khazad-dûm, Oin tried to exit through the Hollin Gate. It was there he was killed by the Watcher in the Water, a creature that Frodo and the rest of the Fellowship would later encounter.
UNLEASH THE KRAKEN!
UNLEASH THE KRAKEN!
            

Gloin

Ah yes! Gimli’s father. His life was much longer and more peaceful than his brother’s. He remained at the kingdom under the mountain and was also sent at the Council of Elrond when the Fellowship was formed. He would later die naturally at the age of 253.

Dwalin

Dwalin was a smart one. He decided to stay at the Lonely Mountain where he lived out the rest of his life, dying at the ripe, old age of 340. He lived through the war of the ring, but it was never revealed if he or Gloin ever took part in it.

Balin

Good ol' Balin. In the Hobbitmovies he was always one of the most liked Dwarves. In fact, he ended up leading an expedition to Moria where he later became The Lord of Moria for some time – until the orcs attacked and he was killed by one of their archers. Remember that Tomb in Fellowship of the Ring? Yup. That was Balin’s tomb.
Poor, old Balin :(
Poor, old Balin 🙁

Bifur & Bofur

Bifur has an axe in his skull, I think he’s had to deal with enough stuff in his life to be bothered with anymore violence. He also stayed back in the Lonely Mountain and lived out his life. His age at death is unknown. Ditto for Bofur. He also lived out his life in the mountain. You know, for a place called the Lonely Mountain, it doesn’t seem quite so lonely there, does it?

Bombur

Bombur, like many of the others stay behind in the Lonely Mountain and enjoyed the rest of his life…a little too much. Bombur had grown SO FAT that it eventually took the strength of six dwarves to lift him to the dinner table.

Dori & Nori

Dori and Nori also stayed in the mountain where they grew their wealth and lived rich, and happy, for the rest of their lives.

Ori

Like Dori and Nori, Ori – the lovable idiot – also stayed in the mountain where he lived out his life peacefully with a wife and children. EXCEPT THAT DIDN’T HAPPEN! Ori actually joined the expedition to Moria and after burying Balin he was killed by the onslaught of orcs that attacked. Remember that morbid diary entry Gandalf read in the Fellowship of the ring? That was Ori’s diary.
And that’s Ori...
And that’s Ori...

BONUS ROUND

Bard Bowman

NOT Will Turner
NOT Will Turner
Bard rebuilt his ancestral town of Dale at the foot of the Lonely Mountain. He eventually became its king, establishing and maintaining good relations with the dwarves, where he lived peacefully and his son Bain succeeded him after his death.

Tauriel

I should save this for when I do my Hobbit 'Based On' video eventually, but I need to vent it here. Kili never fell in love with an Elf, much less meet Tauriel because she wasn’t even a character in the book. Peter Jackson created her just for the movie so he could force in an awful dwarf/elf forbidden relationship to emotionally manipulate the audience (it didn't work). Evangeline Lily was great in her role, but her character felt unnecessary and only weakened the story in my opinion. -- So there you have it, the fate of the dwarves! The adventures that happened inThe Hobbit definitely impacted what would eventually take place in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, mainly due to it being how Bilbo found the ring of power. While, at times, there were unnecessary moments in the films, there were also moments that captured the magic of Middle-Earth and made you want to be part of it!
