    Seems like it was almost Jeff DeMunn bad.

    I don't blame him though. They expected a lot out of him for the little he was doing. Constantly training to almost never use it. His character never actually got his own storylines so he wasn't challenged as an actor. Most of the time he didn't appear at all but when he did it would just be a few lines here and there and then there is just the fact that he was stuck in Georgia waiting around just in case they needed him so he couldn't even take on roles when he wasn't working and I imagine he probably read the comics when he got the role and got excited when he saw what Jesus was going to do and it just never happened.

    Just another character that got fukt over because of the Daryl problem.

    That’s what happens when you’ve got such a huge cast. There’s only so much screen time to go around and some characters end up getting shafted. I blame Gimple. At least he let his feelings be known.

    I don’t blame Him for being upset.

    but by o penly talking about it he proably shot himslef in the foot. I’m sure Kang could have given him good material considering both Rick and Maggie are gone....but when it came time to choose who to die the executives probably told Kang to kill off Jesus cause of Tom’s open criticism.

    At least she was able to give him a pretty badass exit. But this was just one of Gimple’s mistakes that Kang couldn’t fix.

    I don't really think he shot himself in the foot. Seems like he wanted to go and at the very least in his final moments he finally got to be the Jesus he thought he was going to be so it probably worked out for the best.

    It just sucks that it had to get to this point and I think he knew it was only going to get worse now that Lauren isn't on the show.

    Glad to see that he was also frustrated by the lack of Jesus since S6. Like, a lot of characters were neutered in favor of trash Daryl dating back as far as T-Dog. But I think Jesus got the shittest end of the stick; Abraham had his own plot/story, Tyreese had his own with Carol, but Jesus never got anything substational.

    Tear them a new one Tom. You were the Jesus we deserved but never really got.

    I was surprised that he appeared on Talking Dead. He was low key expressing his dissatisfaction there! Saying that he like his entrance and his exit...annnd that's about it! As for those 3 years in the middle, no comment ...lol!

    I'm so so glad that he is being honest and blunt instead of sugar coating and ass-kissing like everyone else. It sucks how badly they treated him though.

    He offhandedly mentioned "the frustration..." during Talking Dead, although he definitely didn't go into the detail he did in the article.
