He told NBC Washington that he had been discussing a possible role with showrunner Frank Darabont.
"That show is going to be a big f**king hit," he insisted. "I've seen it and it is fantastic."
Jane explained that he had been in talks to play a lead role in the programme when it was still in development with HBO.
He said: "I'm going to come on and do a guest thing [now]. Maybe play a bad guy."
However, he insisted that he would not make a cameo as one of the walking dead.
"I'm not going to be a zombie," he confirmed. "That's too much make-up."
The Walking Dead will premiere on October 31 on AMC.
