In a recent interview with MTV, The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman stated that actor Jon Hamm would be perfect for the part, reports Moviepilot.

"I think Jon Hamm would be perfect," he said. However, he added, "I think after Mad Men has run, Jon Hamm is going to have a Tom Hanks level film career, so I don't think he'll be coming back to television anytime soon. Although that would be cool!"
