The Walking Dead's New Zombie App
Uh-oh! Is The Walking Dead's diabolical Governor (David Morrissey) about to go all undead on us? Not quite yet. This image is the first look at AMC's new Dead Yourself app (available at DeadYourself.com beginning January 7), which allows fans to zombify photos of themselves and others — complete with rotting teeth and flesh.
And that's not all. When the show resumes on February 10, new episodes will reveal a special code that fans can use to unlock a fresh zombie part, which they can then incorporate into their ghoulish creations.
I asked two of the show's stars whom they'd like to zombify. Morrissey told me that when he first traveled to Atlanta to begin shooting, he made a stop at Graceland. "So I'd love to see an Elvis zombie," he says. "He's got the moves to shuffle down the street in his Vegas cape."
But tough guy Michael Rooker, who plays Merle, surprised me by revealing he'd select Marilyn Monroe: "Even as a zombie, she'd be hot. I'd have to keep her on a chain."
