For Beastie Boy Ad-Rock, there will be no sleep till Alexandria.
Ad-Rock, one of the Beastie Boys’ hip-hop legends, recently revealed that he wants a guest-spot on AMC’s The Walking Dead. Rock, a.k.a. Adam Horovitz, admitted that he’d gladly trade the glitz and comfort of a New York City in exchange for the zombie-infested South portrayed on the Walking Dead—so long as he can stand shoulder to shoulder with Daryl Dixon.
“Every moment of that show.… I would love to be in The Walking Dead. I don’t want to be a zombie,” Horovitz told Entertainment Weekly. “I want to be like [Daryl’s] friend from the city. Like a distant relative—‘He’s my uncle’s friend from New York.’ They’re not going to have that, are they? I’d show up with like a PBS tote bag and something from Zabar’s—be like, ‘Hey, I got lox! Who wants bagels?’”
Though it seems a bit far-fetched (especially the bagels), The Walking Dead wouldn’t be Horovitz’s first acting gig. He currently has a small role in the Adam Sandler comedy While We’re Young.
Do you think the rapping icon hold his own against the Walkers? Let us know in the comments below.
The Walking Dead returns to AMC this fall.
