Director Frank Darabont and actor Thomas Jane have a long history together. One that Jane wants to continue while inhabiting a wasteland filled with shambling flesh-eaters. Ah yes, dear reader! It’s time for more chatter concerning our most looked forward to TV show, “The Walking Dead.”
In a recent interview with NBC Washington, Jane dropped the following on fans …
“That show is going to be a a big fucking hit,” he told them at the HBO post-Emmy party. “I’ve seen it and is fan-fucking-tactic.” He continues, “I’m going to come on and do a guest thing … Maybe play a bad guy.” Jane says he’ll insist on being human in the guest role, however. He’ll slay the undead, but he won’t play one. “I’m not going to be a zombie,” he says. “That’s too much makeup.”
“The Walking Dead” will premiere on Halloween night, Sunday, October 31st, at 10/9c! To stay up-to-the-minute on all things walker related, follow @WalkingDead_AMC on Twitter and visit “The Walking Dead” on Facebook.
