Gorman is a survivor of the outbreak in Season 5 of AMC's The Walking Dead. Gorman is described as "A casual, charming intellectual. He's quick with a witty remark as he is with a snide comment. Despite his intelligence and amiable facade, he suffers from an innate insecurity that makes him weak and self-serving." He seems to sexually abuse the women that are brought in and must remain to "work off" their debts for being cared for. He also talks of taking power, indicating he wanted to toss Dawn out of her position as head at the hospital.

After being caught sneaking in Dawn Lerner's office and being pressured into sex in exchange for not telling Dawn, Beth, going along with it, surprised Gorman by bashing him in the head, knocking him to the ground. While on the ground, the zombified Joan ripped into Gorman's throat and ultimately devoured him.

He is the tertiary antagonist of the first half of Season 5.
