20 Celebrities Who Could Quite Possibly Be Real-Life Zombies

By 02.07.13

I got a fever, and the only prescription is MORE BRAINS. Via.

For the most part celebrities are extroverted and well-kept and don’t garner much suspicion of being roaming corpses, but there are a select few who are rather odd in a could-possibly-be-a-zombie-for-one-reason-or-another sort of way. And in this walking dead obsessed culture of ours identifying the notorious personalities who may actually be biters just seems like a prudent exercise.

Starting with the low-hanging fruit, we have everyone’s favorite lovable real-life zombie, Christopher Walken. He so fits the bill the perfect TWD internet parody was made in his honor. If one was to be chewed on and turned into a lifeless husk of their former self by one celebrity and one celebrity only, we could all do a lot worse than Mr. Walken. Hell, many of us may welcome it.

The rest of this group, not so much.

Be sure to catch the midseason premiere of AMC’s The Walking Dead on February, 10th at 9/8c, with new episodes Sundays 9/8c.
