Jason Momoa would make a great Negan. Not sure if casting and producers/writers have made a decision of who will play Negan…but I think serious consideration should be given to Jason Momoa. Momoa has that look that would play into this character’s evilness and the pleasure from causing physical or mental pain to “team Rick.” Momoa was great in “Games of Thrones,” playing the character (Khal Drogo).
Without a doubt Momoa would make a darn handsome…eye candy “Negan,” nothing beats a drop-dead gorgeous villain, makes it difficult to resist and adds a twist. Moma proves that he can be cruel, vengeful and cunning in the characters he plays, checkout The Red Road and Road to Paloma…outstanding performances.
Think about the character Negan, he seems to be a big character in the physical sense as well as cruel, hundred percent two sides evil with a enormous dose of ego,evil manipulation and taking no bull-crap talk from his team or those that encounter him. Carrying a baseball wrapped with bard-wire, I would think requires one to be big in statue; specially, if he names the Louisville slugger “Lucille.” Lucille should have a big strong man with big hands to handle her…no pun intended.
John Hamm doesn't fit the statue of Negan...I can only see him as a man in a suit bidding for slogans for companies...on Mad Men. Hamm has such a suburban and mature look for the character of Negan.
My second runner up would be Michael Shannon, this actor has played some screwed up characters.I can see him as Negan with Lucille and steam iron. Sinister laced in a suit... My my my Michael Shannon is a clear menagerie of Maniacs. Think about the characters he has played, Shannon is a deep-rooted character actor in my opinion. Shannon is something of an obvious pick for a villain.
There are four diagnosable types of men that Shannon portrays, whether by choice or through the niche-cocoon of Hollywood casting..... The Sweet Weirdo;The Tortured Loner;The Insightful Loon and The Villainous Scum. "Bug" creepy and his co-star was Ashley Judd. The movie actually frighten me. I love movies that can invoke a bonafide reaction and feeling from me. Most of his characters do that
Let me know your thoughts in the comments below. Tell me your choice of men to play Negan...
