In the "Walking Dead" Season 7 trailer revealed at Comic-Con International: San Diego today, it was confirmed that actor Khary Payton will make his debut on the series as the character Ezekiel in the upcoming season. Payton is perhaps best known for voicing Cyborg on the "Teen Titans" and "Teen Titans GO!" animated series.
In the comics, Ezekiel is the leader of a community called "The Kingdom" -- thus, he's referred to as "King." A wise and optimistic (yet, very eccentric) man, Ezekiel is called upon by Rick Grimes to help him defeat Negan and the Saviors.
Here are a few of shots of Ezekiel (and his pet tiger, Shiva) from the trailer:
