Warm Bodies’ Rob Corddry Shares Zombie Acting Tips

fb share tweet share

If there is ever a biopic about my life, and if quality thespian were stepping into the role of Nick Venable, intent on approaching it as a method actor, there are five things to abide by: beer, writing, bacon, comedy, porn. Add whatever verb you want to any one of those things, and it’ll probably fit. Also, podcasts gets you extra-credit.

Rob Corddry is a bit of a method actor himself, giving an interview with Hal Rudnick of ScreenJunkies where he divulges many of his acting secrets and influences. If you’re familiar with Corddry’s work at all, you already knew to leave all seriousness at the door. Breaking into comedy from bit pieces on Upright Citizens Brigade, to the sub-limelight of being a Daily Show correspondent, Corddry has made a career out of being the egotistical co-worker or friend in guest-starring roles on almost every comedy worth a damn in the last 10 years, as well as starring roles in the amazing Childrens Hospital and the underrated Hot Tub Time Machine. And that was all in anticipation for his greatest role of all: the mostly silent zombie M, in Jonathan Levine’s undead love story, Warm Bodies.

MythBusters Needs Zombie Volunteers for Upcoming Episode

Mythbusters

I remember when the Discovery Channel used to be a place where you could learn things on a daily basis, or at least be able to watch a lion chow down on a gazelle from the comfort of your own home. And while the network hasn’t gone into the ludicrous territories of TLC, MTV, and the Science Channel, it has become a channel that is essentially filled with people doing loud things outdoors. Luckily, they still have the show that popularized doing loud things outdoors, MythBusters, which has admittedly dumbed down the subject matter, though not its approach to said subject matter.

When it was announced last summer that Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman would be taking on myths involving that most ubiquitous of brain chompers, the zombie, horror fans and science fans rejoiced. Now they want you on the show! Well, maybe not you, but maybe your friend. Yeah, the one with the eyeball hanging down below her chin.

The episode will film at the end of January, into early February, and they’re looking for 300 volunteers to help out. No death certificate required. If you’re over 18 years of age and will be available in the San Francisco Bay area, all you have to do is full out this questionnaire and send a couple of photos of yourself to the attached email address. Answering the question “Do you have any experience being a zombie?” is worth the survey time in and of itself.

Walking Dead Christmas Proves Zombies Love The Holidays Too

fb share tweet share

With all my heart, I wish this video were a real thing. Can you imagine a show as overly serious as AMC’s The Walking Dead actually staging a Christmas special? I’d love to be a fly on the wall of that meeting; listening to producers argue the pros and cons of a zombie Christmas. You just know there was one guy, the lone exasperated holdout, pulling his hair, practically screaming “what the hell is wrong with all of you?” That would be a good time.

If Robert Kirkman, Glen Mazzara, and company were to make a holiday edition, it would probably look rather a lot like this short.

Gun sales are up, and the federal government says zombies are the reason. The undead are everywhere, from hit TV shows like The Walking Dead to freakin’ Starburst commercials. No less than three major automobile manufacturers employ zombies as pitchmen in some capacity. They’re not just for low-budget horror anymore.

Nationwide on Black Friday more than 154,000 background checks were performed, which is a record. According to Dave Workman, a representative of the 2nd Amendment Foundation, “It was the largest number of background checks in a single day.”
