The Walking Dead’s Michael Rooker: “I’d Like to See Little Taylor Swift Be a Zombie”
Well, we'd know Taylor Swift was trouble if she walked in as a walker. And it would be a great way to get revenge on all those mean boys who didn't appreciate her.
The Walker Stalkers — which recently had a nice interview with Greg Nicotero — talked to The Walking Dead’s Michael Rooker (Merle Dixon) about Merle's future on Season 3, including how Merle is "perturbed" by the relationship between his brother Daryl (Norman Reedus) and "the cop" Rick (Andrew Lincoln.) "I would say that goes beyond jealousy,” Rooker said. “I don’t want to get into the history between Daryl and Merle, but cops have never been their friends."
Rooker said Merle isn't the kind of guy to take orders from Rick or anyone else. What about The Governor (David Morrissey)? “Merle is playing a game with the Governor, as he would probably play with Rick or anyone else.”
On a lighter note, The Walker Stalkers also asked Rooker which musician would make the best zombie, and that's when the tough guy revealed himself to be soft on Swift: "I’d like to see little Taylor Swift be a zombie," he said. "That sweet little face! Awww! She’d have to work on her zombie walk!”
She could pair it with her "surprised" face from every awards show — a perfect reaction for when Michonne (Danai Gurira) serves Taylor a katana slice. Her poor little zombie limbs would never, ever, ever get back together.
