George R.R. Martin to Play a Zombified Version of Himself on Z Nation Season 2
The man who kills everyone we love is getting a taste of his own medicine. Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin will guest star on Syfy's Z Nation as himself- with an undead twist.

In the eighth episode of the second season, a zombified Martin will fall prey to a villain called The Collector, who kidnaps celebrity zombies and keeps them captive for morbid entertainment. Poor George is kept chained to a desk and forced to "sign" his new book, "A Promise of Spring," which is a play on the presumed title of his seventh (and possibly final) installment of the Song of Fire and Ice saga, A Dream of Spring. In real life, where he is very much alive, he is currently writing the sixth book, The Winds of Winter.
