Hines Ward Will Be a Walker in ‘The Walking Dead’

The former Pittsburgh Steelers star will play – what else – a flesh-eating zombie in the Feb. 10 episode of “The Walking Dead.”

“It was an amazing experience,” said Mr. Ward, who will be a zombie extra when AMC's hit series “The Walking Dead” returns to haunt.

“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.”

AMC scored big in ratings when it ran the first half of Season 3. It was the top basic cable program in terms of total viewers, as well as adults ages 18-49.

IronE Singleton, the actor who played the character T-Dog — played being the operative word, as poor T-Dog went out in a blaze of glory a few months back, saving one of his friends in a zombie attack — attended the University of Georgia on academic and football scholarships.

“A former Georgia teammate of mine is one of the stars of the show, and my agent thought it would be something fun and different for me to do,” Mr. Ward said.

Be careful, Hines. Commissioner Roger Goodell won’t be there to help you/dole out fines when Rick & Co. wreck your shit.
