Walking Dead Season 3 Casts New Character Milton
As understandable as it is for AMC’s The Walking Dead to want to set itself apart from the comic book it is based on by creating their its own situations and characters, I can’t help but wonder if it’s really necessary. I’m all for putting the characters who exist in both the show and comic through new hurtles to see how they react, but introducing new characters when the comic has such a large roster just doesn’t register as a smart move. It seems like a wasted effort, especially with the newest character that has been cast for the show’s upcoming third season.
According to EW.com, Dallas Roberts has been tapped to play Milton, one of the many citizens of Woodbury, the community run by the Governor. While we all know the Governor is a threat and will be a huge thorn in the side of Rick’s group of survivors, Milton is being described as adding a lot of heart and humanity to Woodbury. He’s what you would call a details guy, studying situations and trying to figure out how this new world works. He’s no scientist, this Milton, but he is smart and is figuring out how the zombies behave. He’s proving his usefulness not as a physical asset, but in other ways. He’s really not a bad guy, he just has a dangerous man for a leader.
But as I was getting at earlier, why do we need to create a new character to show that A) not everyone in Woodbury is evil and B) it’s not just anyone who can be an efficient zombie killer. There are plenty of characters in the comic that could have served this role. Immediately, my mind wonders to Stevens, who was Woodbury’s doctor in the comic. I won’t spoil his part for those who haven’t read that version of The Walking Dead, but I will say he was one of many “good” people living in Woodbury. So why not use that character?
