Carl Grimes is going to have a new friend in the prison. On Thursday, September 19 Entertainment Weekly broke the news that actor Vincent Martella will portray the character of Patrick on season four of "The Walking Dead," which will begin airing in October. Martella is known for voicing the character of Phineas Flynn on "Phineas and Ferb," an animated Disney show.
Martella will play Patrick, a young boy in the prison who was a member of Woodbury. Patrick will become friends with Carl, since the two boys are close in age. Patrick can be seen in the trailer talking to Carl and another girl about going to school. The school was started by Carol to teach the kids better survival skills.
Martella is the most recent new character announced on the popular AMC television drama, after Lawrence Gilliard Jr. was cast as Bob Stookey earlier this summer. The voice actor was already a fan of the zombie show, but it's unclear how many episodes he will appear in.
Production on the series is nearing completion outside Atlanta. Season four will begin airing on Sunday, October 13 at 9 p.m. Tune in to see how the friendship between Carl and Patrick develops while the group is at the prison.
