ANTHRAX's SCOTT IAN To Appear On 'The Walking Dead' After-Show 'Talking Dead' This Sunday

Tune in this Sunday, March at 10/9c to AMC TV's live "The Walking Dead" after-show "Talking Dead" to watch ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian join host Chris Hardwick to discuss "The Walking Dead"'s new episode "Remember" (Season 5, Episode 12), which features Ian in a guest role as a walker.

Fans can submit questions during the live broadcast at this location. Questions will be broadcast and discussed by Chris and Ian on the show.

Ian chronicled his latest transformation into a zombie in an episode of his horror FX show for Nerdist, "Scott Ian's Bloodworks" (formerly "Blood & Guts"). Check it out below.

Ian previously appeared in a "Walking Dead" webisode in 2011. At the time, he stated about how the opportunity to appear in the show came out: "I know Greg Nicotero ['The Walking Dead' producer and make-up artist]. We have a mutual friend, Kirk [Hammett] from METALLICA. I met Greg as far back as the late '80s through Kirk because Kirk's a big collector of horror memorabilia. So I'd gone to the set of the webisodes here in Los Angeles, and got to get made up as a zombie."

Asked why metal musicians love horror so much, Ian said: "They've always gone hand in hand. Metal guys are huge nerds. [Laughs] A good percentage of are either horror or sci-fi or comic book or fantasy nerds. So, all of a sudden if you have some disposable income, you're like, 'Wow, I can actually buy that zombie head from that movie!'"

In a separate interview with Nerdist.com, Ian spoke about some of his favorite horror make-up moments of all time. He said: "The first thing to pop into my mind is when Tom Savini gets torn apart in 'Dawn Of The Dead'. That scared me as a kid and I guess you could kinda say it stayed with me in a good way. The scene in 'Scanners' when his head blows up, that’s a classic. Anything in 'Evil Dead' or 'Evil Dead 2'. I just watched 'Drive' last week and that scene where she gets her head blown off is straight out of an '80s horror movie. The movie's not necessarily slow, but very Michael Mann, '80s kinda pacing, very moody and all that — and then all of a sudden that hotel-room scene happens and you're just, like, 'Holy crap!' and then from there it's just 100 miles an hour. I was blown away with that movie."
