Howdy, muthafuckin' dick suck cunt fucking fuck fuckity fuck fucker fucking fuck fuckers! *hyperventilates* ...Negan's here.

Now before we can discuss the blog, I understand that there has been some new rules about blogs so I apologize if I broke one of the rules - feel free to remove the blog if it's not good enough. And also, sorry for my bad english... it's the best thing I could do. Let's get fucking started.

....Another lame day, looking through some Walking Dead shit, until I've found one article about Negan's actor. My heart stopped beating for a second when I saw the actor's name. Kevin Durand... the man who's appoaraching to play "The Big Swinging Dick". The article was posted two hours ago so I'm sure there'll be more rumors spreading around to discuss about Negan's actor.


"During a conference call with actor Kevin Durand for FX Networks’ The Strain the actor was asked about several roles and TV shows fans would like to see him in. Durand revealed that he’s been approached to play a character known as Negan in AMC’s The Walking Dead."

Who is this Kevin Durand guy? He is Canadian actor (Holy shit, Negan gotta be "Canadian"!?), known for X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), Real Steel (2011) and I Am Number Four (2011).

So it's not Steven Seagull... nor Henry Rollins... neither Bruce Campbell, etc. Have we finally found a man who'll play as the most badass villain in the whole Walking Dead universe? Is Kevin Durand going to be the person who *SPOILERS* who'll murder Glenn brutally? Rip Spencer's stomach open? Use women as sex toys? *SPOILERS END*

Now, I can picture him as Negan... the second main antagonist after David Morrissey's character, but again... it's not going to be like ACTUAL Negan from the comics. It's not because of the actor, but where's the muthafuckin' profanity? I'm a lil disappointed that it's not Henry Rollins but oh well.

"This is screwing screw screwity screw stupid screwing screw losers!"

If it's gotta be Kevin Durand, then I bet they'll put "Eh?" at the end of every Negan's sentence.

Honestly, Rick's last line in Season Four was fucked up (And I sure damn hope AMC would see this).

Now, HOLD ON! Don't cheer, nor fucking cry...because it's not confirmed yet. If you're lucky, it could be someone else that we wanted him to play.

Any thoughts on Kevin Durand as Negan?

EDIT: Update with the quote from Kevin Durand during the conference call.

"I’ve had a lot of people with The Walking Dead talk to me, mentioned that they see me for a character named “Negan,” but I haven’t read the comic."
