Now that's some badass casting.
Robert Patrick will forever be respected as one of the most memorable and terrifying villains in cinema history. The T-1000 in James Cameron's Terminator 2: Judgement Day. You'd be lying if you said you didn't spend a good amount of your childhood fantasizing about that film, especially it's action scenes.
Or imagining yourself as Edward Furlong, with Arnold protecting you from this horrifying mf.
And now, he will be joining the ranks of another mega franchise. One of my favorites. The Walking Dead.
It has been reported that Robert Patrick will be in at least one of the bonus episodes of The Walking Dead Season 10, airing in early 2021.
We do know that one of those episodes will be a Negan original story. I'm hoping Robert Patrick will play the original leader of The Saviors, the evil mafia like group Rick Grimes and his team faced off against for two and half seasons. Patrick could be the leader that Negan has referenced on one or two occasions.
I can't think of an actor better than Robert Patrick to assert such a dominance on screen that may even put Jeffrey Dean Morgan's Negan in check.
