Former Steelers receiver uses connections to get extra part on AMC hit series
Hines Ward is a zombie now. The former Steelers receiver has used his connections and landed himself a part on the hit AMC series “The Walking Dead.” It might not be a major role, but it sure looks like fun.A photo of Ward in character has emerged online – click above to see it in full.
“It was an amazing experience. Just being in makeup preparing me for my role was cool. I actually scared myself when I looked in the mirror for the first time after,” Ward says of getting ready to do his little bit.
“The Walking Dead” returns to the small screen on February 10, but my advice would be to keep your eyes really peeled if you want to see Hines as a zombie.
Chances are he’ll be harder to spot in the crowd. You know, what with all the other terrifying zombies roaming around.
