Hines Ward, who many of you know as the guy who probably screwed over your fantasy football leagues with inconsistent play, only to dazzle in the real-world playoffs after he’d lost his fantasy use, is coming to The Walking Dead. Ward, who also appeared in last year’s The Dark Knight Rises and won season 12 of Dancing with the Stars, is attempting dominate television and film now. He’s working as a sports commentator for NBC, working on the Food Network, and preparing for the Ironman world championships.
He got the gig on The Walking Dead through a friend, IronE Singleton (T-DOG!), with whom Hines attended the University of Georgia, where T-Dog was also a football player. No word on whether Ward’s speaking line will be “Aaaahhhhhrrrrr,” or “Gahrrrrrr.”
The second half of season three returns on February 10th. Full image of Ward after the jump.
