The Walking Dead has amassed a huge fanbase over its six seasons so far, and some of those fans happen to be very famous folks. A couple of them have even managed to sneak in guest appearances on the show. One celebrity who has not yet succeeded in nailing a part on The Walking Dead is none other than musician Chris Daughtry, but it hasn't been for lack of trying. He recently spoke out about the lengths he's been going to in the hopes he'll nab a part on the show.
Honestly I’ve been lobbying for The Walking Dead. I’ve been auditioning for the last season. You know the stringy blonde-haired dude with the half burnt face? That was the role I auditioned for. We hate him, so maybe it’s a good thing I didn’t get him because I’ll have a more beloved role.
Chris Daughtry’s reveal to the Music Times that he’s been lobbying for a part on The Walking Dead shows some nice optimism. He didn't get a job on TWD in the first six seasons, but Season 7 may just be the one that lands him a beloved role. One can hope.
Of course, perhaps he would have an easier time landing a spot on The Walking Dead if he had lower expectations. Chris Daughtry seems to want an actual character to play on the show, and Dead presumably has a more rigorous audition process for characters than for random zombies. If Daughtry isn’t willing to put on the Walker makeup and be put down in a gloriously gruesome way, he may still have a long wait ahead of him before he joins the ranks of Rick and Co. in the zombie apocalypse.
Chris Daughtry made a name for himself when he made a deep run on the fifth season of American Idol. The fact that he wasn’t the ultimate victor didn’t stop him from launching a successful music career, and he’s one of the top three Idol alums when it comes to album sales. In fact, he’s been such a success as a musician that it’s almost hard to believe that he’d wanted to be an actor rather than a singer as a child.
His wins on the music scene haven’t stopped him from pursuing acting every so often. Chris Daughtry was cast in a pilot for Fox called Studio City, which was unfortunately not picked up to series. He made it to primetime as an actor on Fox earlier this year in the role of Judas in Tyler Perry’s live Jesus musical. Neither role will likely do much to pad his resume for a shot at The Walking Dead, but some experience is better than no experience.
Only time will tell if Chris Daughtry will finally win his dream role on The Walking Dead. Unfortunately, The Walking Dead is currently on hiatus, but that hasn't stopped news from the series from spilling out on a regular basis. In fact, one superfan actually put together a video following rigorous analysis that may reveal who actually died during that epic season finale.

The video in question makes the claim that Glenn is ultimately the one on the receiving end of Negan's bat. It's a bold choice, but the video actually makes a pretty compelling case. Unfortunately, it ultimately relies on the show being shot in a logical, organized way in terms of the counting and what characters were cut to. Maybe that's the case. Maybe not. You can decide for yourself by watching the clip below...
