The Pittsburgh Steelers old Friend Hines Ward continues to try and build on his resume with more acting in his future. His new adventure will place him in Georgia where the AMC hit series The Walking Dead is filmed. Ward is very familiar with the area as he was a standout wide receiver as a Georgia Bulldog years ago. He then went on to have a hall of fame career for the Steelers until his recent retirement. Now it seems he has some new ways to pass his time in life after retirement.
The opportunity presented itself to Ward by former teammate and Walking Dead character T- Dogg. The two played together and have some roots and Ward said that he jumped at the opportunity. Ward has already been involved with the hit show Dancing with the Stars and feels plenty comfortable in front of the camera. This new role, however, will have him in a position that is much different from that which he is used to.
Ward’s cameo role in the series will be as a zombie or “walker” as they are called in the show. Ward had to have a long sit down to get remade as a zombie, which was complete with latex masks and gory makeup. This along with fake blood and battered clothing made for an interesting experience for Ward. You can see more of his transformation at NFL.com, or can watch The Walking Dead on AMC primetime tv on Sundays to get a glimpse for yourself.
