While it has not officially been confirmed by AMC, fans of the series ‘Silicon Valley’ probably noticed the appearance of actor Avi Nash briefly in the season 8 trailer. Several sites are now reporting that Nash has signed on to play the role of Siddiq, a character introduced in comic #127.
In the comics, Siddiq, originally from Miami, Florida, traveled after the apocalypse began and found a home at Oceanside as a fisherman, but after meeting Michonne he leaves to join Alexandria. He plays an important role as the story continues.
