“The Walking Dead” needs extras

Doesn't this look like fun? AJC staff photo by John Spink

Are you good at lurching around, affecting blank stares and a displaying a yen for human flesh? Are you ok with long hours and a wardrobe and makeup job that says “Graveyard Chic?”

AMC may have a gig for you.

The network’s hit show is shooting its second season through November and they’re currently accepting applications from folks who want to be extras.

Judging from the scene TWD recently filmed in Cobb County, this likely means they need a lot of folks to stumble around. This photo from that day of filming the zombie parade gives you an idea of what you might be in for.

Email your resume and photo to twdextras@gmail.com. It’s generally a good idea to include height, weight, age and other specs.

Wow, some people can’t enjoy anything without bringing their politics into it. Way to take the fun out of being on a show. Oh wait, that’s right, you’re a republican – no fun allowed.

Nope, just tired of religious zealots and political pachyderms trying ruin everyone’s fun with a constant presence of “I’m right, you’re wrong” attitude. If you have to sell it that hard, there’s has to be something wrong with it. That is all. This is a blog about a TV SHOW!

they are filming in hampton next to atlanta motor speedway almost every day. it is a madhouse on hwy 20 but it is cool to see all the zombies and wrecked, burned up cars. not a bad idea to go try it out.

Hahahaha I knew I could generate a typically anal retentive response from all of Atlanta’s Obama Zombies. Get used to the abuse. It ain’t over ’til I say it’s over!!

Seriously, since the show takes place in Atlanta, how do the characters on the show tell the difference between “The Walking Dead” and Atlanta’s world-(infamous), stoned panhandlers?

I wonder if they want fat zombies. Are zombies fat? I play zombies in Call of Duty and they are all emaciated looking…………..

As a fatboy, would I be wasting my time to apply?

Recruiting Zombies should be easy. Georgia Metro has a large number of TEA-BAGGERS who would not need any make-up or wardrobe changes. As a matter of fact, there is a large amount of dead weight within the Nathan Deal administration.

They only pay $60(sixty dollars) for 8 hours work. And you will work out in the HEAT/HOT sun. They may pay some folks a lil extra but please don’t hold your breath.

Rory in Atlanta your comments are kind of racist when you consider that majority of Atlanta population is black usually it be a clear front runner for the republicans whom all are jokes. All are going after Obama but neither have stepped up and said what they got planned for this country other than f&%k it up some more. The republicans cant even get one of their old antiques to rise to the top. Their like a barrel of crabs, pulling each other down. The return of the dead will benefit some.

jaydavis– seriously, racist? lets not take it there. call him an idiot, call him a dear, but lets not call him racist just because he is against Obama. the true test of time will be the 2012 election results. i say…just vote for newt–it will hurt less that way. and adamsville? you are lucky jenn does not know what you mean.
