Don't throw anything yet, this is just a rumor!
The Walking Dead Season 5 is currently filming in the Atlanta area, and while we were stalking filming spoilers minding our own business, we saw fans talking about the rumor that The Fault in Our Stars actor Ansel Elgort, 20, would be joining the cast this season. Oh, really?
The rumor may have started with this tweet from @TheWalkingNews:
So not only is he meant to show up, he could sink the Bethyl ship single-handedly.
Do you buy this? A lot of fans are skeptical — which is the safest thing to be — but there's already a YouTube video discussing the possible casting.
This is definitely grain-of-salt territory, at least until something official comes out. As the YouTuber mentioned, there was a Katherine Heigl casting rumor that turned out to be BS, so this could just as easily be false.
That said, what do you think about just the idea of Ansel joining TWD — with or without a connection to Beth Greene (Emily Kinney)? Many more characters are meant to be joining TWD in Season 5, so it's certainly not out of the question that a cute young guy like Ansel might get a role.
The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres in October on AMC.
