TWD Wiki: How did you get your role on the walking dead?
Honestly I am not sure.. I sent a submission to Extras Casting Atlanta and Greg Nicotero liked my look and thought it would be perfect for the Snoring Guy, plus I have extensive ties in the Atlanta film industry so I was highly recommended for the part.
TWD Wiki: Did you read the graphic novel or watch the show prior to your role?
I watched the show.. I am a huge fan of the acting actually. I also had been on the show prior but it was a very small role that actually got almost all but cut out.
TWD Wiki: What was the small role you played before the snoring man?
I was the bandaged guy. Season 2 Episode 5 I was in the flashback scene leaned up against a minivan while Shane and Lori were finding the campground.
TWD Wiki: Did your character have a name or backstory? If not did you make one up for yourself?
The survivor before being devoured by an undead Patrick
Greg had a back story already... I was established in the prison with Daryl as a Woodbury refugee.
TWD Wiki: What was it like having your inside’s torn out?
Ticklish..I was trying not to laugh cause I am very ticklish...
TWD Wiki: Do you have any interesting or funny stories from your time on set?
There's a few stories. My favorite one was when I met Scott (Hershel).. He come over and started staring me up and down cause I was in my prosthetics and basically spent 3 days wearing that and boxer shorts... That's all I wore while I was on set. He comes over and looks at me and says "You look like you have had a rough day", I eyed him up and down and smirked back at him "Nice ponytail".. he laughed and we talked... I'm a bodybuilder as well so it was also fun watching me and Tyreese eying the craft services cause we both were hungry and very muscular.
TWD Wiki: Did you enjoy being on the show?
The Survivor after his insides are ripped out by Patrick
Yes I did.. Its a shame I cant go back but it was a lot of fun and very rewarding
TWD Wiki: Are you currently working on any other projects?
Yes I am a Peacekeeper on the Hunger Games series. I am also working on the Dumb and Dumber sequel as well...
TWD Wiki: Thanks you for the interview on behalf of the entire wiki we thank you
