Oh, hey, look, if you are still trying to avoid spoilers from the season premiere of The Walking Dead then maybe the internet isn’t the best place for you to be right now, along with anywhere people might be, or at any location where a television might be on. So don’t continue reading if you still (somehow) don’t know what happened and don’t want to know.
Seven years is a long time to stay at one job, and it’s always tough to move on when you’re so comfortable working there. Especially when that job involves being on one of the most watched shows on television. But when you’re plying your trade in a world of zombies and murderous lunatics every day can be your last, no matter how important you might be to the company. Fortunately for The Walking Dead‘s recently departed Steven Yeun, he didn’t take long to find a new gig after Glenn was introduced to Negan’s bat Lucille. In fact, he still managed to stay on television. Kinda.
As we can see in the clip from last night’s Conan, Yeun’s new job is working as Conan O’Brien‘s stand-in during rehearsals… though, it doesn’t appear as though much rehearsing is done by Yeun, since he mostly just spouts nonsense and plays his guitar for hours on end instead. At least he managed to get that famous Conan hair right.
Oh, and if you’re wondering who stands-in for Andy Richter during rehearsals, lets just say it’s somebody else that also suddenly found themselves in need of a paycheck. Depending on who Negan kills next, maybe they’ll be able to get work on the show filling-in for La Bamba.
What other shows would Steven Yeun be a good stand-in for? Fill in our comments section below with your best suggestions.
Where will The Walking Dead go from here?
