Ned Moseley is a Human later turned Zombie and one of the main protagonists of the 2015 American comedy horror film Freaks of Nature, portrayed by Josh Fadem who was the camera guy in roles of the Television series Better Call Saul and Liz Lemon.
Ned is the former best friend of Dag Parker and also a social outcast at high school. An argument with his family, Ned visits the zombie ghetto. He allows a female teenage zombie to bite his leg, transforming him into a zombie. In subsequent brawls between the factions, Dag, Ned, and Petra join together and hide in Stuart Miller's basement, but Petra and Ned are overcome by hunger and eat Stuart and his mother. The aliens are able to determine their location, causing them to seek cover at the high school. Petra and Dag become trapped and make out, but he flinches and Petra accuses him of being afraid of her. The aliens find them again, and Dag realizes that the aliens can only see inorganic materials, such as their synthetic clothing. The three then strip and run to Dag's house, where they change into organic cotton clothes kept by Dag's hippie mother. Later, Dag, Petra, and Ned are captured by the aliens. They are placed with other captured residents in a warehouse, with force fields segregating the humans, vampires and zombies. Dag, Ned, and Petra convince everyone to band together to fight the aliens.
Ned and Dag are able to hit the bomb with a plank, returning it to the spaceship which explodes, destroying the alien menace. Everything returns to normal for the town, Ned appears to be happier and better adjusted as a zombie, and seems to have bonded with his star athlete brother who has also become a zombie.
