Michael Cudlitz recently explained the similarities and differences of his current TV show "The Walking Dead" and "Southland," in which he starred from 2009 to 2013.

Cudlitz's roles in "Southland" and "The Walking Dead" are both Los Angeles Police District officers. He played the troubled Sergeant Denver "Bull" Randleman in "Southland" before playing emotionally broken Sergeant Abraham Ford in "The Walking Dead."  

"It was real run and gun. 'Southland' was a show where we were not afraid to be ugly. Our hair was not perfect," Cudlitz told Los Angeles Times.
