The Walking Dead spinoff has found its male lead

Earlier this week, we reported that AMC’s Walking Dead spinoff—codenamed Cobalt—would revolve around a divorced male teacher, a female guidance counselor, a drug-addicted son, and an ambitious daughter. (Also, zombies). The son is being played by young Voldemort, Frank Dillane, and the daughter is Into The Storm‘s Alycia Debnam Carey. Now, thanks to Deadline, we also know who’s playing the divorced male teacher: Cliff Curtis, who recently appeared on Fox’s short-lived Gang Related.

Other than those character descriptions—and now the actors playing those characters—the only thing we know about Cobalt is that it will be take place in a different location than vanilla Walking Dead. We don’t know what that location will be, though, which seems like a crucial thing for AMC to be so tight-lipped about. Of course, even doing as little research as possible on Cliff Curtis, Alycia Debnam Carey, and Frank Dillane reveals what seems to be a major clue as to what that location will be, but we don’t want to spoil it for anyone. On an unrelated topic, has anyone ever seen a zombie kangaroo? Or maybe a zombie double-decker bus, assuming Australian people can do a British accent?
