Chris Daughtry recently starred as Judas in the televised live version of The Passion, but there’s yet another role he covets.

Speaking with Music Times, the American Idol alum revealed he’s been all-out, no-holds-barred trying to get on his favorite show, The Walking Dead. Apparently, he auditioned for the role of Dwight. Here’s what he had to say:

“Honestly I’ve been lobbying for The Walking Dead. I’ve been auditioning for the last season. You know the stringy blonde-haired dude with the half burnt face? That was the role that I auditioned for. We hate him, so maybe it’s a good thing I didn’t get him because I’ll have a more beloved role.”
