    Doesn't matter because they will just end up in the background just like every other new character.

    "Dillon, a sexy, blue-collar twentysomething whose survival skills include sarcasm, and Abbud, an innately likable Muslim American whose nerves are, letís say, jangled"

    Fits perfectly into the show right now. Ben and Spencer are gone, so the GA needs another twenty-something male sex symbol. As for 'Abbud', it doesn't get any more politically correct than introducing a 'likeable muslim' in the show at this point.

    Actually, it will prob work. This show is set a few years ago, so no one really hated muslims then.

    I'm expecting fans to start campaigning Naveen Andrews for the role of Abbud/Siddiq anytime soon.

    Makes sense.

    I honestly think he's too big of a name for TWD to reel in though

    Wasn't there a muslim woman at the Kingdom already? She was just in one episode, tending the garden, and she had a few lines with Ezekiel

    Probably just new characters so they have some line of familiar background character deaths to keep TF safe for more important stuffs. I don't think they would introduce Siddiq and Dante just yet. Then again, Oceanside was pretty much fully introduced, and I don't believe I've even seen more than two characters from there in the comics. So we'll see!

    As long as this show is set post 9/11 post invasion of Iraq/Afghanistan then boy howdy I'm sure there will be some Muslim hatred. Though I would forgive it if the reason 'Abbud' is so skittish from 'going it alone' for so long is because so many groups he came across had racist idiot conspiracy theorists types that got it in their heads that 'Yeah, well I heard that this zombie thing was all some plot by Al Qaeda, you're prolly one a' them Taliban terrorist scum too!' or 'group sees him praying to Mecca; assumes he's a terrorist'
