You really know you’ve made it in the Geek world when you appear as yourself on the show “Robot Chicken” — just think of it, a little Mego-sized doll resembling yourself, waving those little jointed arms around. This is the fate of “Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman, who’s appearing on the show Nov. 18th, to be ironicaly eaten alive by the undead rascals that have spawned from his creatively fertile brain.
Kirkman is modest about his appearance on “RC”:
“It’s not the biggest role and I don’t expect to be winning an Emmy anytime soon. But hopefully it will be memorable enough to have a lasting effect in the Robot universe.”
According to EW, who has the first look at Kirkman-doll’s excruciating end, the writer did all his own screaming. Again, Mr. Kirkman:
“Getting in a room and being able to scream as loud as you can in front of other people on the other side of the glass is certainly a bit awkward, but it was fun.”
Don’t expect him to do any Stephen King-esque cameos on “Walking Dead,” however. He tells EW that he finds cameos to be “extremely self-serving.” Take that, M. Night Shyamalan!
