• Universal looking for zombies


    LOS ANGELES: Troy Zimmerman—a freelance designer with a jaunty Hercule Poirot moustache and a charming line in self-deprecation—zombie-shuffles like a pro.

    The 45-year-old is among more than 1,000 hopefuls who have come to audition for the newest attraction at Universal Studios in Los Angeles—a live recreation of AMC’s hit horror series The Walking Dead.

    Universal is looking for 100 “walkers” and human survivors for a permanent attraction due to open in summer that will recreate the experience of living through a zombie apocalypse.

    Universal has partnered with the program’s creative team, including legendary zombie special effects master Greg Nicotero, who will painstakingly recreate the molds and prosthetics that have scared the living daylights out of millions of viewers weekly over six seasons.
