Tyler James Williams, who plays Noah on AMC's The Walking Dead, has joined CBS's Criminal Minds spinoff as a series regular, Entertainment Weekly reports.
Gary Sinese stars in the project as leader of a division of the FBI that helps American citizens who find themselves in trouble abroad. Williams, on the other hand, will play tech analyst Monty, who "stays at home while the team works abroad. His attention to detail and kind manner are invaluable as he liaises with the families of those in trouble and uses his tech savvy to help the team fill in the holes as they search for a killer far from home.”
Williams' credits include Everybody Hates Chris and Go On. This new casting announcement may hint at his character's fate in the second half of The Walking Dead's fifth season.
This unnamed Criminal Minds pilot will air in the original show's spot on Wednesday night sometime later this season.
