Press: Jeffrey Dean Morgan wants Negan backstory episode

EW – Negan made quite the entrance in the season 6 finale of The Walking Dead, and then spent season 7 terrorizing our heroes. But actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan tells EW that we’re going to see more sides to the big bad in season 8, which premieres Oct. 22 on AMC. “We’re going to start seeing slivers of who this guy is beyond the brutality that we saw in season 7,” says Morgan. “The most fascinating stuff that I’ve got to do this year is seeing behind the leather jacket.”

 

Not that he’ll be that different. “He’s still going to be a big f—ing dick,” the star says with a laugh. We spoke to Morgan to get some scoop on what to expect coming up, and while looking into the future, he expressed a desire to also dig deeper into Negan’s past.

 

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: We’ve seen Negan when he’s firmly in power and in charge. But what kind of Negan are we going to see now in the throws of war, when the kids in the schoolyard start standing up to the bully?

 

JEFFREY DEAN MORGAN: Well, you know, I don’t look at it quite the same way. I don’t know that Negan really sees himself as the bully in this circumstance. I think what’s interesting about this year — for me and for Negan — is that we’re going to start seeing slivers of who this guy is beyond the brutality that we saw in season 7.

 

My favorite episode last year was where I got to do some stuff with Chandler Riggs [who plays Carl], where you can start to see little glimpses of Negan and who he is as a man and not just this guy swinging a big bat around. We’re going to find some more things about Negan, which I think are fascinating. I think the audience is going to really kind of dig it too.
