    Jon Hamm Would've Been a Better Negan

    I'm watching Jon Hamm in Black Mirror and everything about him screams scarier better Negan. Oh well.

    LOL go watch some of JDMs other stuff and you'll see why he's the perfect Negan. Blame TWD for not choosing to showcase JDMs ability to play a Demented, crazed, psychopath extremely well. I think JDM does the role perfectly and I'm so ecstatic that I got my dream casting for Negan.

    I don't think it matters who ended up playing Negan. The writers and The Gimp seem to want Negan to be brought to life on the screen the way JDM is acting Negan now. I don't mind his cocky, asshole demeanor in the episodes we've seen Negan in so far because I think it's somewhat fitting. He's acting this way to Rick on purpose because he wants to rub in the fact that HE'S in charge and that there's nothing Rick can do about it now. That being said I do think they should try to tone him down a little bit in future episodes. There's good reason to have Negan act like that during the Lucillings and when he shows up to take all their shit at Alexandria. But if he's gonna be all pompous and puffed up like he has been for EVERY interaction, it's gonna get old kinda fast. I was talking with Hate about this earlier today and we both kinda believe that maybe Negan just doesn't translate to the screen as well as in the comic. Most of his humor is lost. And without the humor it's pretty easy for him to get annoying.

    I completely agree. JDM sucks as Negan. Too damn goofy and he speaks like in syllables. Annoying as hell. Jon Hamm would have been so much better. I just want to punch him when he speaks.

    Don't get me wrong, i like JDM performance. But only if he could tone down that hips swinging thing.

    Like someone else said, I don't think it's JDM at all. I think it's the writers screwing up yet again.

    I don't know how I'd feel about Jon Hamm as Negan, I just don't see it.

    I don't know much about Jon Hamm, having only seen him in MM. I am curious about how Henry Rollins would've handled the role. I don't think JDM is a bad actor. The writers and directors are shaping Negan.
