Will Jon be going H.A.M. on walkers?

Robert Kirkman, creator of "The Walking Dead," said in an interview with MTV that he is 99 percent sure that "TWD" comic book villain Negan is coming to the show and Jon Hamm would be perfect for the part.

"I think Jon Hamm would be perfect," said Kirkman; though, he was quick to add, "I think after 'Mad Men' has run, Jon Hamm is going to have a Tom Hanks level film career, so I don't think he'll be coming back to television anytime soon. Although that would be cool!"

Negan, a notorious villain in the comics, is known as the leader of a group called The Saviors and carries around a barbed wire covered baseball bat he calls Lucille.

On the subject of Negan, Kirkman told MTV, "I wouldn't expect Negan too terribly soon, although he is definitely in the plan. It's a 99 percent lock that he's going to be in the show eventually, so be on the lookout for that."

Season 5 of "The Walking Dead" premieres in October 2014 on AMC.

"Mad Men" airs Sunday at 10 p.m. EDT on AMC.
