Republican strategist Sean Spicer auditions to be Walking Dead extra
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Failed RNC chief strategist Sean Spicer is in the midst of auditions to play an extra on AMC's The Walking Dead.
The Hollywood Reporter, which broke the story, reports that Spicer has struggled professionally since Spicer's former boss failed Republican candidate Donald J. Trump lost the election to President Hillary Clinton in November by a staggering 3 million votes.
In fact, Trump is refusing to allow Spicer to list him as a professional reference in job applications. In a series of tweets, Trump recently blamed his crushing loss to Clinton on the incompetence of his former campaign staffers, referring to Spicer specifically as a “total germ-bag gum-chewing loser.”
Spicer told THR that while his job hunt has so far been unsuccessful, he's managed to stay afloat thanks to unemployment benefits and now hopes to turn his luck around by switching from GOP politics to the entertainment industry.
“If I'm lucky enough to get hired as an extra on The Walking Dead, I'll be put both my face contortions and my growly monotone to good use,” he said. When asked by a BuzzFeed reporter why he wanted to be a zombie in a television show, Spicer’s face turned red as he pointed out that the undead on the show are referred to as “walkers,” not “zombies.”
