The Walking Dead On AMC Zombifies Hines
So far, it appears retired Steeler Hines Ward is having a successful career off the field. Ward kept busy this past NFL season as a studio analyst for NBC’s “Football Night in America.” He also has appeared on the silver screen in a brief cameo in the blockbuster hit “The Dark Knight Rises” where he nearly dies during a kick return for 6.
In his latest cameo, Ward doesn’t escape death, but rather embraces it. AMC’s hit television series “The Walking Dead” has made Hines a member of the undead. Hines comments that the makeup was so good that he scared himself.
“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 told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
I wonder if he’ll be wearing that classic Hines Ward smirk/grin as a zombie. Hopefully Rick or Darryl have what it takes to kill off a Pittsburgh legend, as Ward’s opponents on the field had a tough time stopping his relentless attacks.
Check out Hines avoiding being taken by the collapsing field above.
