COLUMBUS, Ohio — A former Ohio man who gained fame from playing corpses in television shows and movies is getting ready to say his final “goodbye” and retire.

The Columbus Dispatch reported that Chuck Lamb says he originally pursued his acting career as a “bucket list thing.” He dubbed himself the “Dead Body Guy” in hopes of getting roles and set up a website under that name.

The 60-year-old actor, credited with 11 on-screen deaths, has been profiled by The New York Times. Lamb says he would like to be on “The Walking Dead” before retiring to his Florida home.
