Jeffrey Dean Morgan sure is busy on Sunday nights. His diabolical character Negan was introduced in the season finale of The Walking Dead, but he’s also simultaneously playing Jason Crouse, Alicia’s love interest on The Good Wife.

Upon a cursory inspection it seems like the two guys couldn’t be more different. Negan gives a masterful soliloquy about the new world order as soon as we meet him, whereas Jason hasn’t even spoken 25 words since his character was introduced earlier this season. Jason has an incredibly sexy way of taking off his glasses, and Negan doesn’t need any eyewear.

But what if Jason is the Clark Kent to Negan’s Superman, and the glasses are his disguise? If The Walking Dead is taking place in the future, couldn’t Negan actually be the man we know as Jason Crouse, transfigured by all the zombies he’s had to kill? Has anyone seen these two guys in the same place? Here is some evidence that proves Negan and Jason may actually be the same person.
