    Why did John Hawkes turn down Walking Dead's Governor? Commercials! | Blastr

    By now, most Walking Dead fans know that David Morrissey (Centurion, Nowhere Boy) has been cast as the iconic baddie the Governor, being the No. 2 choice after John Hawkes (American Gangster, Identity) turned down the role. But why did Hawkes decline to play one of the biggest characters on cable's biggest series?

    In an interview with Movie Web, Hawkes opened up about his thought process and why he didn't think a stint on the zombie series was the right move for him, career-wise.

    "They offered me the role, and I just felt there would be someone else who could do it better. I was flattered, and I took a look at the series. It held interest for me, but I just didn't feel like I was the guy for it," he said. "I have to be careful of what TV shows I choose, particularly ones that have commercials in them, because it's going to be a different kind of television show. There are going to be sponsors. No matter how good the show is, if there are commercials, it's going to be a different show, to me. That's just my personal feeling. Yeah, it was nice of them to ask, and it's a good show, but, again, I just didn't feel I was the guy. They came to me and sent me the graphic novel and the first two seasons. I took a look at them, and just didn't feel like it was for me."

    So...The Killing...still continues to be a great show. I am enjoying it just as much as last season. Yet there is a troubling trend. I read yet another article(on EW) yesterday basically saying how the show had lost it's heat, etc. It's reached the point where it almost seems like these outlets are trying to submarine this show. It's a constant stream of negative press focused solely on the post finale' disappointment of PART of the audience. Very little is said regarding the current season which is 4 or 5 episodes in. At some point...move on. Either watch or don't, but really...stop trying to maliciously turn poeple who still enjoy the show away from it.

    This is an interesting take but the writer was right. Hawkes didn't get why Kirkman wrote the whole story. I like the actor but seems like this is a case of someone thinking they are smarter then they really are.

    As much as I wanted Hawkes, the guy has spent a LOT of time working to get to where he is at this point in his career. He did a lot of character/tv work and is finally getting paid off with movie roles that, while indy-ish, are getting him Oscar chatter. I think 'the Governor', although it would have had geek cred, might have been a step backwards for him.

    Don Draper is such a boss buying that Jaguar like it was nothing. That scene with Joan in the bar was needed for years.
