Eugene, the star of The Walking Dead, has landed a new job away from the zombie series.

Josh McDermitt, who plays Eugene Porter on THE WALKING DEAD, has landed a new film.


Actor Josh McDermitt has earned a new movie role after seven years as Eugene Porter on AMC’s smash series The Walking Dead. This political thriller, starring Patricia Clarkson and Josh Lucas, will be a far cry from the post-apocalyptic horror series.


Josh will be seen in the upcoming political thriller Lilly, which will take him away from his zombie surroundings.


The film will be based on the life of political activist Lilly Ledbetter, who was honored in 2009 with the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act.


She rose to prominence at the Supreme Court after pointing out that her former employer, Goodyear Tyres, paid women substantially less than men.


She filed too late after the statutes were established, according to the courts, therefore they ruled against her.


During Obama’s presidency, these regulations were changed, ensuring that the time limit was changed each time a discriminatory paycheck was delivered.


The film will not only raise awareness about Lilly, but it will also examine the psychological impact it had on her.


Josh will be starring with Patricia Clarkson as Lilly, while Josh Lucas will play her husband Charles Ledbetter.”


Her personal life and friendship with Charles, who was her emotional support during the court cases, will be explored in the political series.


While the identity of Josh’s character has yet to be disclosed, fans can look forward to seeing Thomas Sadoski, who will star in the film.

He’ll play Jon Goldfarb, the civil rights lawyer who helped Lilly get her letter to the Supreme Court.

“My favorite films have always been about stubborn warriors, whether their struggles be political or personal,” director Rachel Feldman said in a statement about the upcoming film, giving fans something to look forward to.

“My goal is to create a suspenseful thriller that will keep the audience on the edge of their seats while instilling hope in their hearts.” she continued Josh will no longer be portraying a guy who is struggling for his life in order to survive a swarm of zombies.

Josh initially appeared on The Walking Dead as Eugene Porter in season four of the show in 2014. Fans will recall Eugene’s desperation, which led him to lie about being a government scientist when he didn’t want to. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
