Hines Ward is considered one of the greatest wide receivers to ever play in the NFL, and he certainly is a legend in Pittsburgh as a former member of the Steelers. Since retiring, he has become a studio analyst for NBC's "Football Night in America," but he wants a little more. Well, on Monday, Jan. 28, 2013, the first picture of Ward made up as a zombie on "The Walking Dead" hit the world.
That's right, Hines Ward has jumped on board and become a zombie.
He has an old college teammate that has a few connections and is actually an actor on "The Walking Dead." Thanks to that hook-up, Ward was made into a zombie with full make-up and will appear in a future episode of AMC's hit series.
Ward won't have a huge role, but he will most likely make a prominent appearance on screen considering who he is. In "The Walking Dead," Ward will be a zombie extra and pics show that the team did an awesome job on him.
"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.
