The Walking Dead - Interview with an Extra

How did you get involved with The Walking Dead?
A friend of mine that does the costumes for Netherworld, the big haunted house in Atlanta, also did the costumes for the show last season. I asked her if she heard that they needed Zombies for the second season, could she let me know? So one day last spring, I got a message from her and my buddy Hal Clay, that The Walking Dead was looking for “emaciated looking people” for Zombies., and I was like ” uhhh… thanks?”

How many episodes are you in?
I’ve been in 3 episodes that have aired so far, the sixth webisode from FX guru Greg Nicotero, that you can watch on amctv.com, and you’ll see me in the last episode of the season on March 18th.

Whats it like working with Greg Nicotero?
Greg, and all of the Make up/FX guys, (and girl), are some of the COOLEST people I have ever met! I knew that my buddy Jake Walsh was a pretty huge JAWS fan, and so is Greg, so I asked Greg if he would mind talking to Jake if I got him on the phone, and Greg said “Sure, call him up!”

What was the make up process like? How long does it take each time?
It was really cool! It takes an hour or two, depending on the degree of make up you’re getting, if you’re a “Hero Zombie”. If you’re one of the background or mid-range Zombies, it’s either just a mask, or airbrushed make up.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
