Stan Lee Wants a Cameo on The Walking Dead

Keep your eyes peeled for zombie Stan Lee in next season of The Walking Dead. Robert Kirkman, the comic's author and one of the show's writers and executive producers, says people approach him all the time, begging to be zombie extras on the series. "I'd like to be able to tell everyone yes, but there are only so many zombies you can get into a show," he says. But certain requests take priority: "There may be some fun cameos for comics fans popping up in the second season. I don't wanna call these people out; it might annoy them. Honestly, Stan Lee asked to be a zombie on the show — that's possible." Kirkman also maintains that the show's departing writers left voluntarily. "No one was fired," Kirkman says. [AV Club]
