This is such awesome news. I don't follow the comic's so I don't really know who Negan is as a character but any role that JDM plays will be great. Bad or good guy it doesn't matter. I can't wait. The Walking Dead and Supernatural are my two favorite shows so "worlds collide" as a friend recently said about that. Can't wait. Rick Grimes and Papa Winchester toe to toe.
