Did social media lose Chase Vasser the gig on The Walking Dead?
The former UGA football player took to Twitter in April to seemingly confirm he'd been cast in Season 5 of the zompocalypse show. In a post which has since been deleted, he tweeted:
It's Official! Tune in on Oct 13th on AMC for The Walking Dead! #cannibaltwist,
bad timing to say I've never watch an episode of the Walking Dead. Gotta Catch Up ASAP!
Last week Vasser again seemed to confirm his involvement in the show, tweeting:
That's A Wrap! Finally done being 193 pound drug addict. Beast Mode now for next Role! #ZombieKiller #NotDyingEasily
So I guess that means we can look forward to seeing Vasser do all sorts of undead damage in Season 5 then?
Well not quite. Turns out the athlete-turned-actor won't be appearing in the show after all:
Something here doesn't seem right. A couple of months back he was telling the world to look out for him on [The Walking Dead](series:201193), but now he's claiming he was never cast on the show?
I don't really buy it. Either he's still on board and this is a ruse to distract us, or he's spoilery tweets announcing his own casting didn't sit well with the overlords at AMC and they've given him the boot.
What do you think?
