9. Scott Wilson (Hershel) has had kind of a bad-ass career, which took off with major roles in In the Heat of the Night in 1967 followed by a role as one of the murderers in Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood. He’s had fairly stead work as a character actor ever since. That’s him on the right, from In Cold Blood.
10. David Morrissey who is set to play The Governor in season three, was nominated for a Razzie for his work in Basic Instinct 2. More interestingly, however, is that he’s married to the great granddaughter of Sigmund Freud. He’s a longtime British television actor who some of you may recognize from his role in Doctor Who.
11. Pruitt Taylor Vince, who played Otis in a few episodes, always plays twitchy, nervous and disturbed characters (in fact, he beat out the likes of William H. Macy, Ewan McGregor, and Alan Arkin to win the Emmy for outstanding guest star for his role in Murder One in 1995). The reason he often plays these characters is because Vince has nystagmus, a condition which causes a person’s eyes to move involuntarily.
He’s also recently been in an episode of Justified.
12. There’s not very much interesting about Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori), except that ironically considering viewers’ opinion of Lori, Callies’ character on Prison Break was a fan favorite, and she married her college boyfriend at Darthmouth, a martial arts teacher who looks like a total dork.
