‘The Walking Dead’ season 7 video: Jeffrey Dean Morgan on letting ‘swear words fly’

Negan -

With the seventh season of “The Walking Dead” approaching, anticipation is growing for many things. For one, there still are questions regarding precisely who Negan killed … and then there is just overall excitement to see Negan himself. He stands as of the most notorious villains in the comic series, and his reign of terror is going to extent so far beyond just what we see in the premiere.

One of the things that remains a trademark for this character is his propensity for profanity, and that is something Jeffrey Dean Morgan describes in the video interview below via Entertainment Weekly. In it, he describes just what sort of fun he is having as this character, and then to go along with that some of the limitations that are coming his way because of AMC’s rating for television. Basically, he is doing two separate versions of the show: One with less swearing, and then some where he really lets it fly.

As a matter of fact, Morgan mentions that he often ad-libs extra profanity in here just because it feels like something that the character would do, which we imagine will turn up on the season 7 DVD much in the way that other things have that are a little too extreme for the TV version. We do understand the frustration out there that there are certain things that must be augmented for TV, but at the same time keeping the rating at a certain level is one of the reasons why the show has become as popular as it is.
