AMC’s Many Familiar Faces
AMC loves AMC, so it’s not surprise these character actors can be found during the zombie apocalypse and within the 1985 tech revolution. Perhaps the biggest role on both shows comes from Cooper Andrews, who plays Jerry in the Kingdom.
Jerry was an instant hit on The Walking Dead, and Andrew’s role as “Yo-Yo” on Halt and Catch Fire is equally memorable.
Two Doctors, One Network
Next, there’s Dr. Carson, played by Keith Harris. Dr. Carson will likely be a bigger player when the series returns, seeing as Negan promoted him to being the only doctor around, but he’s also in a few episodes of Halt and Catch Fire.
Harris ironically plays another doctor on the show, Dr. Semel. Since Gordon Clark (played by Scoot McNairy) has a few medical issues on the show, Dr. Semel is featured in three episodes.

Beyond these two Walking Dead characters, there’s one more familiar face, but unfortunately he didn’t make it through all of Season 7.
R.I.P. Fat Joey, Former Savior
Finally, there’s Joshua Hoover, who plays Fat Joey on The Walking Dead. Before Daryl Dixon eradicated Fat Joey (making Skinny Joey just Joey), the actor also starred as Bodie on Halt and Catch Fire.
Unfortunately for Hoover, both of these characters are somewhat annoying in their perspective roles, but both symbolically important. It’s hard to forget Negan’s walkie eulogy which Rick and the gang were stealing dynamite or the moment that Daryl Dixon snapped and beat Joey to death.
Both series are now streaming on Netflix for your viewing pleasure.
