"Walking Dead" fans, do you like the idea of David Morrissey as The Governor?

David Morrissey has landed the coveted role of The Governor for the third season of "The Walking Dead."

Let's keep spoilers to a minimum, but do you like the casting? He's obviously not at ALL how I pictured the character from the comics, but he's such a good actor that I'm encouraged by his casting, even if it means the character might be executed differently on the small screen...

What do y'all thinks?

Not remotely what I pictured either -- the way he's portrayed in the comics, he looks more like a slightly Anglicized Danny Trejo -- but I think it could work. I am largely unfamiliar with his work, but I like what I've seen, and I appreciate the idea of choosing someone who could provide the emotional depth necessary for the audience to even halfway identify with such a maniac. Plus, I know from his work in the 'Red Riding' trilogy that he can rock mutton chops with wit and aplomb, so I'm sure everything else will fall into place.
