The Mythbusters gang is going to get some help testing zombie myths from one badass destroyer of the undead.

Walking Dead actor Michael Rooker – Merle Dixon himself – is going to guest star on the Discovery Channel hit.

That’s all the info we have right now on the episode. Well, almost all – we know one of the myths being tested is attempting to figure out which weapon is really best for killing a horde of the undead (Merle would presumably opt for a bayonet) and that the show recently put out an all points bulletin for 300 volunteers to play zombies to help shoot the episode (which will shoot tomorrow, along with Rooker lending a hand  … ahem). The episode will air as part of the show’s upcoming 10th season.
