[post_page_title]Timothy Olyphant vs. Jeffrey Dean Morgan[/post_page_title]
The Walking Dead fans can’t get enough of the latest baddie, Negan, but the role was very close to being played by someone else! Timothy Olyphant, known for his parts in Deadwood, Justified and A Perfect Getaway, was very close to stealing the part of Negan during auditions.
However, there was something about Jeffrey Dean Morgan that the producers couldn’t get enough of. Negan and his trusty bat Lucille are still starring in The Walking Dead in 2018, whereas Olyphant is now playing Joel in Santa Clarita Diet.
