Hines Ward to make cameo as a zombie on AMC's "The Walking Dead"

Former Steelers and University of Georgia wide receiver Hines Ward will appear on the hit TV show alongside former college teammate Irone Singleton on the AMC hit show "The Walking Dead" in its third season.

The Walkers are going to get much more athletic on AMC's hit TV show, "The Walking Dead."

Through a former teammate at the University of Georgia - Irone Singleton, formerly Robert Singleton, who plays T-Dog on the show - former Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward picked up a zombie role in an upcoming episode.

The premise of the show is a post-apocalyptic United States after zombies - known as Walkers - have taken over and a band of survivors fights for their survival. Ward is difficult to recognize, wearing a torn and mangled suit that's way too big for him and covered in the same gore and grime as most of them do.

Pittsburgh is represented on the show by special effects and makeup guru Greg Nicotero, who has an appearance in the video, boasting himself as being one of the main voices in support of bringing Ward on the show.

That voice, chock-full of Pittsburghese, is heard making cracks with Ward as he's preparing to turn undead.

"This is what I look like after playing the Baltimore Ravens," Ward joked, followed immediately by Nicotero's response, "No, that's what the Baltimore Ravens look like."
