The Walking Dead Star Goes Full Pirate In Kraken Commercial

The Walking Dead star Tom Payne booked a new gig as the face of Kraken Rum’s new commercials.

Payne, who plays Paul “Jesus” Rovia on AMC’s zombie drama, released the first look at his new commercial on Instagram. In it, he channels his inner pirate who recently hd a terrifying encounter with one of the ocean’s most terrifying mythical creatures.

“It was a dark and stormy night, I was alone on the black sea,” Payne’s sea hero recalls. “An eight-armed monster with tentacles a mile long surfaced beneath me. The Kraken. I attacked! The storm raged and my ship was broken in two. I fell into the ocean tasting the sea water mixed with the thick rich ink of the beast. What’s your story?”
