Scott Wilson is the oldest member of The Walking Dead cast, and he certainly has a lengthy list of credentials to show for it. He’s starred in over 50 films throughout his career, including In the Heat of the Night, In Cold Blood, The Great Gatsby, Dead Man Walking, Pearl Harbor, and Junebug. He was nominated for a Golden Globe in 1980 for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in The Ninth Configuration, but lost to Timothy Hutton.
Though Scott’s television credits aren’t quite as extensive, he has appeared on episodes of The Twilight Zone, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Law & Order, and various other shows before landing the role of Hershel Greene on The Walking Dead in 2010.
