The Beastie Boys star is a big fan of the TV show and now he's hoping his latest role in acclaimed film While We're Young will land him a role.

He tells Entertainment Weekly, "I f**king love that show. Every moment of that show... I would love to be in The Walking Dead."

Horovitz even has a clear idea of what type of character he'd like to play: "I don't want to be a zombie. I want to be like Daryl's (Norman Reedus' character) 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 (network) tote bag and something from (deli) Zabar's. I'd be like, 'Hey, I got lox! Who wants bagels?'"

The sixth season of The Walking Dead is set to air in America in October (15), and a spin-off show, called Fear the Walking Dead, will debut this summer (15).
