Red Cross, 'Walking Dead' zombify celebs for bloody cause

First they helped create a zombie presidential candidate, and now AMC/Walking Dead has partnered with the American Red Cross and are applying their brains to blood - as in encouraging the living to donate blood by zombifying celebs.

Because blood supplies are incredibly crucial during disasters (including a zombie apocalypse), the "Use Your Brains, Give Blood" campaign has given the undead treatment to some famous faces like Peter Jackson, Jimmy Smits, Mena Suvari and more with the help of makeup effects guru Greg Nicotero. OK, so it looks like Nicotero gave the celebs a Photoshop undead treatment, but this is still pretty cool.
