The Walking Dead Zombifies Pittsburgh Steeler Hines Ward
It’s almost here. AMC’s zombie drama The Walking Dead has been on hiatus since late last year, but we’re less than a week away from the return of season three. The next episode, “The Suicide King,” premieres February 10th, and if you watched the mid-season finale, you know there are a lot of questions hanging in the air. This latest clip from the episode digs into some of those.
In the last episode, “Made to Suffer,” one of the biggest moments was the arrival of Tyreese (Chad Coleman) and his group of survivors. At the end they were safely contained inside the walls of the prison, but their ultimate fate was left dangling. In this clip we see some of how they fit into the larger group.
From appearances, it looks like they’re doing okay, or at least they’re no longer viewed as an immediate threat. One noticeable absence in this scene, however, is Rick (Andrew Lincoln). The paranoid leader of the group is sure to have something to say about accepting new people with open arms, especially after everything they’ve experienced with The Governor (David Morrissey) and the survivors at Woodbury. This is just one of many threads we’ll have to watch play out.
While you’ll obviously recognize all of recurring cast members in “The Suicide King,” sports fans may also notice former Pro Bowl wide receiver Hines Ward. Ward appeared in The Dark Knight Rises as, shocker, a football player. He got the part through his close chum and former University of Georgia teammate, IronE Singleton, who played T-Dog until he was recently disemboweled saving a friend. Ward told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that playing an undead extra was, “an amazing experience.”
