The Walking Dead -- Pictured: Vincent MartellaDisney Channel animation fans may have recognized a familiar face — or voice, perhaps — when AMC debuted some new footage from season 4 of The Walking Dead last week. Standing there in the prison yard talking to Carl was Vincent Martella, best known as the voice of Phineas Flynn on the hit series Phineas and Ferb. (Martella also played Chris’ best friend, Greg Wuliger, on Everybody Hates Chris.)

Martella’s character is named Patrick and is among the various survivors that have been brought into the prison to help build the new community. “He’s right around Carl’s age,” explains Martella. “He’s a little bit older. He’s one of the new people who Carl gets a little closer with. Carl hasn’t really had anybody his age, so now you kind of get to see Carl’s relationship with people his own age and that’s one of the things that Patrick is bringing to the show.”

For Martella, booking the gig was both a personal and a professional score. “I was actually a massive fan of The Walking Dead,” he says. “I’ve watched it since its premiere. It’s been such a cool thing for me to be a part of the show that I’m such a big fan of, because I don’t watch too much television religiously, like every single week. But this is one of those shows, so I’m really lucky.”
