'Zombie Vine' Kid

I'm One Step Closer to Terrorizing the World on 'Walking Dead'

12/17/2013 12:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The New Jersey high school kid who turned his disability into a hilarious "Zombie Prank" Vine account says he's one giant step closer to his dream -- starring on "The Walking Dead" -- but he's waiting on one important phone call.

17-year-old Nick Santonastasso -- who was born with only one arm and no legs -- Skyped in to "TMZ Live," telling us there's a petition gaining a LOT of momentum online, begging "Walking Dead" producers to get Nick on the show.

The petition has more than 1,500 signatures ... nonetheless Nick says he hasn't gotten a phone call from showrunners to make it all official. But he's optimistic.

For all his followers, however, Nick's still taking a lot of heat from people who say he's reducing his disability to an object of mockery ... check the clip to hear his thoughts. Pretty profound.

Good for him. It may sound awful to say or hear it, but he's perfect for each and every zombie movie that comes out. He is making the best out of an unfortunate situation.
