The Walking Dead’s Josh McDermitt plays ‘Name That Mullet’


Josh McDermitt is one of the most popular actors on AMC’s hit zombie surival drama The Walking Dead.  His character, Eugene Porter, is best known for being timid around walkers, providing socially awkward moments, and his unique choice of hair style.

The mullet has become Eugene’s calling card, referring to it as a ‘Tennessee Top Hat” and having Tara ask him if it is the “source of his power”.  He’s been offered a haircut on a couple of occasions, and declined, which is a good thing because the style has become synonymous with his character.

Recently, Josh McDermitt took a break from talking about The Walking Dead to play a game of ‘Name That Mullet’ with the folks over at Yahoo! TV.  How well did he do?  Check out the video from the Yahoo website:

The first one was WAY too easy.  Anyone that has lived through the days of “Achy Breaky Heart” would recognize the mullet of Billy Ray Cyrus.  From there, things got more difficult as some of the biggest stars in Hollywood were shown rockin’ the “Kentucky waterfall”.

I played the game along with the video, and I got the same one wrong as Mr. McDermitt did.  Who would have thought that one of the “Sexiest Men Alive” would ever be photographed with that kind of hairstyle!

The video was made even better by the actor from The Walking Dead‘s commentary.  He had fun things to note on every photograph and did a fantastic job identifying the folks that have helped make the mullet what it is today.

You can see Josh McDermitt when The Walking Dead returns for the season 6 premiere on Sunday, October 11, 2015.  Check your local listings for time and availability.
