The Punisher Wants a Guest Spot on Walking Dead TV Series

Thomas Jane is a huge fan of Robert Kirkman's Walking Dead Series.  Jane, who played The Punisher in the first film was originally scheduled to play Rick Grimes when the project was in the hands of HBO. 

Since then, the project moved over to AMC, and Thomas Jane stayed with HBO to star in Hung. But that doesn't mean Jane is any less excited about the project. 

"That show is going to be a big f---ing hit," he told NBC Washington blog PopcornBiz at HBO’s post-Emmy party. "I've seen it and it is fan-f---ing-tastic."

So far, we’ve only been made privy to the supersized "The Walking Dead" trailer but Jane is completely right.  It looks awesome.

And Jane still wants to be a part of the show.  He apparently spent much of his Emmy night lobbying “Dead” director Frank Darabont (who directed Jane in “The Mist”) to get on the show.
"I'm going to come on and do a guest thing," he told the site. "Maybe play a bad guy."

His commitment only goes so far though.  Jane plans to stay alive for any role he may play in Walking Dead.  "I'm not going to be a zombie," he said. "That's too much makeup."

Gfest is all for this happening.  Jane was a great Punisher, and I can't help but feel that the Punisher would be like a kid on Christmas in a world full of zombies that need killing.
