Dean Cain Loves Zombies, Hates Raw Meat

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Dean Cain is known for being TV’s Superman, but eating raw meat for his latest film role made him feel anything but super.

That’s the word from Cain, who portrays a half-dead, flesh-eating zombie in Dead And Deader, which debuts tomorrow (Dec. 16) on the Sci-Fi Channel.

Cain says he enjoyed playing a creepy zombie and hopes his film will fit into the “Zomedy” film genre.

Says Cain: “I love zombie movies. They’re scary, but also hilarious. Anytime there’s one on TV, I watch it and laugh at the dead guys running around.”

However, Cain admits he wouldn’t be laughing if zombies really invaded, adding, “...that would just be creepy.”

While Cain enjoyed being a living dead man, one thing he didn’t enjoy was his character’s zombie diet.

Says Cain: “I had to eat raw meat in some of the scenes and it was so gross. The producers would sometimes stick a piece of cooked meat in there to be nice.”

He adds, “Luckily, I didn’t contract any viruses – but I won’t be eating raw meat again anytime soon.”
