Here's Who Xander Berkeley Is Playing on The Walking Dead
We've known that The Walking Dead was adding 24 and Nikita vet Xander Berkeley to the cast, but the character he would be playing was being kept under wraps. Now, Berkeley's role has finally been revealed, and it should be a familiar one to fans of the comic. 

Berkeley will be playing the part of Gregory, who in the comics was the leader of the Hilltop Colony. We're expecting the character to do the old good guy/bad guy bait and switch, since that's pretty much how he's handled in the comics. There, Gregory is initially friendly toward Rick and his crew, gaining their trust before betraying them to Negan, Jeffrey Dean Morgan's big baddie who is going to come to the forefront in the latter half of season six.

The show's midseason trailer doesn't show Gregory, but it definitely teases Negan and his goons as a major presence. Maybe Gregory paints himself as an ally of Rick and company in their struggle against Negan before turning on them? We'll have to wait until the next new episode on Valentine's Day (yes, Valentine's Day) to find out.
