Metal Takes Over Your TV: Scott Ian (Anthrax) on The Walking Dead, John Jarvis (Fulgora/Pig Destroyer/Agoraphobic Nosebleed) on House of Cards
Uh-oh! Look out, Lars Ulrich! Looks like you’re not the only metal musician turned master thespian. This past week has actually seen two prominent metal d00dz pop up on popular television programs.
First up, we have Anthrax’s Scott Ian playing a zombie on The Walking Dead. Ian is unrecognizable under all the make-up, but it sounds like they at least let him use his real voice, so that’s good.
Here’s Ian’s appearance on the show (via Metal Injection):
As if that wasn’t enough, bassist John Jarvis (Fulgora, Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed) appears on not one, not two, but three episodes of the new season of the political drama House of Cards… specifically, episodes 3, 9, and 11. Alas, I don’t have a video clip of that for ya, but seriously, who the fuck doesn’t have access to a Netflix account these days?
If you enjoy watching prominent metal musicians play minor roles on popular television programs, keep your eyes peeled for Varg Vikernes’ appearance on an upcoming episode of Duck Dynasty! Check your local listings for details.
