Jeffrey Dean Morgan said this to MTV about his character the Comedian: "He does kind of have a twisted sense of humor. There were days that weren't necessarily easy -- because he kind of does some sick things -- and so there were a couple days where, as an actor, that trying to justify what I was doing was a little difficult. But at the end of the day, man, it was awesome. How often are you going to get a chance to play the creepiest guy in the world?"
