During an interview with empireonline.com, Dave Batista talked about his role in the film Army Of The Dead and mentioned how he was turned down to appear on AMC's The Walking Dead television series:
"I’m a zombie fan. I tried to get on Walking Dead for years. I said I would come and play a zombie for free, but they said, ‘You’re too big!’ For me, there had to be something special about a zombie film for me to sign up. What sets us apart is the heist. But there’s a whole bunch of different layers to this film."
