Jeffrey Dean Morgan's Mom Was't Excited With His Walking Dead Negan Casting


When Jeffrey Dean Morgan heard he was being offered the role of Negan on The Walking Dead, he emphatically said "Yes," with a slew of F-words. How fitting.

However, when his mom found out he got the role, it was a different story. The actor appeared on Late Night With Seth Meyers last night and told the story.

"When I took the show, she was like, 'What does this mean with The Good Wife?'" Morgan told Meyers. "She was devastated that this could be the end. I was like, 'Mom, keep your pants on. We'll see what happens.' "

"He's a game-changer. It's a complete 180 from what I'm doing on The Good Wife, which as an actor is a dream come true," Morgan said of playing the villain. "I get to be the biggest ass in the world."

The Walking Dead returns February 14 at 9 PM ET on AMC.
