If you didn’t know that Scott Ian was infatuated with zombies, then you obviously don’t know Anthrax that well either. Seriously, the song “Fight ‘Em Till You Can’t” is one of many Anthrax songs about a zombie apocalypse. That’s why it’s awesome that Ian will actually be a zombie on a webisode for AMC’s zombie apocalypse drama The Walking Dead.
Last week, the Anthrax guitarist was on set in full zombie makeup to film an appearance on The Walking Dead. In a new posting on his website, Ian said the following about his guest spot:
“My agent got the call asking if I wanted to come down and get made up to play a zombie in a webisode for AMC’s Walking Dead directed by Greg Nicotero (effects GOD, check out the resume: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0630524/). I couldn’t say yes to this fast enough. Like I said in my Tweet, I’ve been wanting to do this my whole life. Zombies have always been my favorite genre of horror and to participate in something as killer as Walking Dead would just be amazing.
Truly my Make A Wish moment!”
You can read Ian’s full recap over at his website, where he also posted pictures (like the one above) of him getting zombified. Seeing a killer looking zombie with Ian’s signature goatee: priceless. Hopefully the webisode featuring Ian will pop up online soon. The Walking Dead’s second season premieres on October 16 on AMC.
