The tenth iteration of “Mean Tweets” is here — this time with Margot Robbie, Norman Reedus, Ryan Gosling and more reading scathing and hilarious tweets on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Wednesday night.
Hugh Grant kicked things off: “Watching Hugh Grant and his stutteringly pathetic ‘charm’ is about as appealing to me as closing my scrotum in a DVD case,” he read.
“Do y— … Are these real, or do you make them up to be especially nasty?” Grant asked with stutteringly pathetic charm.
Melissa McCarthy got to read, “Melissa McCarthy is the Madea of white people.”
“The Walking Dead” star Reedus took a bite out of an apple after reading an especially suggestive tweet.
Paul Rudd took some heat for being an everyman. His tweet read, “Paul Rudd is the most boring, vanilla dude. You know he just sits at home with his wife having a bland spaghetti dinner talking about his day.”
Zac Efron, Olivia Wilde and Russell Crowe were also among the stars who fell victim to the internet’s bitterness.
But perhaps no moment during the segment topped Bryan Cranston who read, “Bryan Cranston looks like Jim Carrey impersonating Matthew McConaughey,” which is followed up with a genius McConaughey impression that transformed into Carrey part way through.
The Walking Dead: Norman Reedus says he ‘couldn’t speak’ after watching the season finale.
Andrew Lincoln was so distraught, it was the only time he’s ever shown up late for work. Lauren Cohan says she didn’t even want to go to work. Josh McDermitt threw his script across the room.
The cast of The Walking Dead has been very vocal with EW about how upsetting the season 6 finale (airing this Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on AMC) was to both read and film, and now another voice has been added to that chorus. This time it’s from someone who not only appears in the finale, but has actually seen it as well. Or at least an early version of it.
“I saw a little rough cut of it,” Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl, tells EW. “And it’s the most hardcore episode we’ve ever shot. I couldn’t speak after I watched it. And, of course, I knew what was happening, and what was going to happen, and who was involved, but I got to tell you, I couldn’t speak for like an hour. And then I just was bombarded with phone calls on my drive home. But that was a rough, rough, rough cut. I will say that it might be the best episode we’ve ever shot of the show.”
“Hardcore” is also a good way to describe Negan, the super-villain from the comic book who will be making his long-awaited arrival. While Negan (and his barbed wire covered baseball bat Lucille) spells bad news for the characters on the show, those who do manage to survive are exited to work with the man playing him, Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
“I’ve known Jeffrey for a long, long time,” says Reedus. “He’s a friend of mine, and I really respect him as an actor. And as a dude, he’s just the best. It’s weird to have such a nice guy playing such an a–hole, you know what I mean? But that’s just the testament to how good he is. So I’m excited to see where he goes and what happens to that guy.”
The episode will also mark the second straight season finale to be helmed by Greg Nicotero, who has become the show’s go-to director for big episodes. “Talk about the inner circle, Greg’s one of those people who’s with you from the get-go,” says Reedus, “from the very start of everything you do to the very end of everything you do. He’s one of my best friends and I’ve watched that guy just blow the hell up. He’s an unstoppable force right now on the show.”
Now we’ll just have to see if anyone can stop Negan.
Norman Reedus Was Once Asked to Act ‘More Good-Looking … Like the Blond Guy on ‘Lost’’
They said what? Norman Reedus revealed in a new interview with Men’s Fitness that he was once told at an audition to — get this — act more “good-looking.”
“I remember in one of my earliest auditions, the casting director goes, ‘Can you do that a little more good-looking next time? Like the blond guy on Lost,” Reedus said in the March issue of the magazine. “And I was like, ‘What the f–k is that? I … looked up the guy and knew there was no f–king way I was going to get that job. There’s no way I could be that good-looking.”
The “blond guy” in question was Lost star Josh Holloway, who is known for his rugged features — and toothy smile.
Reedus, 47, has his own appeal, of course, but has always marched to the beat of his own drum, having fallen into acting by accident. He detailed to the publication the time he went out drinking with pals in the Hollywood Hills, which led to his stumbling entrance into Hollywood.
“I drank too much and started yelling at people,” he said. “Somebody in that crowd of people approached me about being an actor.”
Reedus will next reprise his role as gravelly voiced Daryl on AMC’s hit series The Walking Dead, which returns on Sunday, February 14.
Asked what fans can expect from his character’s story line, Reedus could only tease, “Chaos.”
“As far as Daryl is concerned, he is pissed off,” Reedus told Entertainment Weekly in a recent interview. “He’s had his stuff taken from him. He put himself out there and trusted some people, and it did backfire on him, and I think he comes back super pissed off. … I mean, I know you know the bad guys that are coming. It’s been announced and well, displayed for everyone to see, but there’s definite surprises coming with all of that, and you know, it’s battle time.”
Norman Reedus talks about having ‘knees in the breeze’ on his new motorcycle series
Daryl Dixon lost his motorcycle on this past Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead, but star Norman Reedus will still be spending plenty of time riding his bike on AMC.
The network announced last month that it had given the green light to six episodes of a new 2016 docuseries tentatively titled Ride With Norman Reedus that follows the Walking Dead star and companions riding in different cities and exploring motorcycle culture along the way. We spoke to Reedus recently to get some intel on where things stand with the show right now.
“We’re right now in the stages of mapping out where we’re going and who we’re going with,” says the star. “And we’ve got great locations and great rides that we’re planning on right now and with some guests in mind that will come on the show and we’ll go on a journey with them. And hopefully the viewers will feel like they’re on a journey with us.”
Reedus says the closest comparison for his program would be one currently airing on CNN about food. “It’s kind of like what Anthony Bourdain does right now with his show. The common denominator for him is food and when that show first came out it was about food. And then food stayed the common denominator, but it was about experiences and meeting people and hearing their stories. I love that show. I’m a huge fan of that show. And that’s kind of what we’re going for with this — the motorcycles will be the common denominator and riding will be the common denominator.”
Reedus says the first pilot episode has already been shot and has him excited for more. “We shot a pilot episode for it and it was so much fun and we learned so much on this pilot episode in meeting people and seeing these other people’s experiences and going to places with these people and them showing us their ropes. It was great, and now I’m going to be a man on his horse out there traveling the world. It’s going to be fun. I’m super excited.”
The star hopes that his new adventure will be a ride that both motorcycle aficionados and people with no experience will want to take. “I have a lot of friends that ride motorcycles and they’re so excited to watch stuff like that. And the same with a lot of friends of mine that are really into travel and they save their money to go places and see new things. Hopefully we’ll show both those things for people. I’ve got my knees in the breeze and I’m just looking for new stuff. It’s a blast.”
Norman Reedus to star in new AMC motorcycle series ‘Ride with Norman Reedus’ to follow ‘The Walking Dead’ star’s road adventures
Daryl Dixon has barely been off his motorcycle this season on The Walking Dead, and now the man who plays him — avid rider Norman Reedus — will also be spending a lot more time on the bike as the star of a new non-fiction series for AMC tentatively titled Ride With Norman Reedus.
Consisting of six one-hour episodes that will debut in 2016, Ride will follow Reedus and a different riding companion in a different city each week as they travel to a destination and explore motorcycle culture along the way. “I’m incredibly excited and thankful to AMC for giving me the opportunity to share a passion of mine with our fans, and hopefully a whole new audience,” said Reedus in a statement released by the network. “I had a lot of fun filming and exploring, and I hope it shows.”
AMC says that the show will “celebrate some of the best and brightest collectors, mechanics and motorcycle craftsmen around the country,” and the network is clearly excited about getting into the Norman Reedus business beyond just The Walking Dead. “We love being the home of people’s passion projects, and there is nobody more passionate about motorcycles than Norman Reedus,” said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC. “He is an avid rider and aficionado who is deeply immersed in motorcycle culture. There is also nobody more fun to hang out with. This show will bring those two elements together for a weekly ride into the incredible world of motorcycles and the people who live and breathe them.”
And that sound you hear is fans now freaking out that the announcement of the new series means Daryl is about to be killed off on The Walking Dead. (They shouldn’t fret: There is plenty of time during the show’s hiatus each year for Reedus to film the new show while still slaying walkers with his crossbow.)
Ride With Norman Reedus will be produced by Left/Right Productions, the company behind shows like This American Life, Small Town Security, and Odd Mom Out.
‘Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus Talks Robert Kirkman & ‘Air’ Movie, ‘Boondock Saints’ & Beating ‘SNF’ – Comic Con
Having spent five seasons working with Robert Kirkman on the blockbuster AMC series, the man who plays Daryl Dixon now is joining the EP on the big screen. Coming out on August 14, Air features Norman Reedus co-starring with Djimon Hounsou as caretakers in an underground bunker where human beings are suspended in cryogenic sleep. The duo wake up for their scheduled shifts only to have things not go according to schedule, to put it mildly. And that’s on top of the fact that the pic from Kirkman’s Skybound banner has a nuclear fallout that has left the air on Earth unbreathable.
Reedus sat down with me at Comic-Con to talk about the movie, The Walking Dead tackling Sunday Night Football last season and what San Diego meant to The Boondock Saints. Check it out in the video above.
Norman Reedus of ‘Walking Dead’: ‘I stabbed my brother’ to a Willie Nelson song.
Beloved “Walking Dead” lone wolf turned pack protector Norman Reedus, aka Daryl Dixon, sat down with Hero Complex at San Diego Comic-Con to talk about his latest sci-fi movie project, “Air,” which was also produced by “Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman. Reedus touched on his new sci-fi project, his ever-evolving Daryl playlist, and the creation of the famous Dixon poncho look, which he came up with himself.
The full interview is above, but we’ve pulled out a few highlights for your reading pleasure, specifically referencing the Daryl Dixon playlist Reedus creates for his character:
On the Daryl playlist:
Norman Reedus: This season is crazy, we’re on episode 7 out of 16 right now. I came to Comic-Con exhausted I’m going to leave here memorizing lines on the way out of here. We’re fully in it right now.
Do you have a line circling in your head right now that you can’t get out of your head?
Reedus: I don’t really memorize lines like that. I do scenes. I’m thinking of playlists right now, to play while I’m driving to work.
Reedus: I have a lot of Motorhead going through my head right now. This band called The Vines. There’s a song called “F the World,” which will probably make that list. I get ready to go do stuff.
You make a Daryl playlist for everyday?
No but I listen to a song. The episode “Still” with Emily Kinney I had a Dinosaur Jr. song going on and on in my head the whole time. I stabbed my brother to Willie Nelson. It’s just different. Different reasons for different songs.
On Daryl’s poncho:
Reedus: “[The Poncho] was my idea. I pitched it in season 2 and they were like ‘Come on give me a break.’ What I asked for was like a horse blanket from Herschel’s farm. And I was going to cut a hole in it and sleep in it. Back when I was in junior high I had the leather jacket that was my pillow and my blanket and my best friend. I sort of thought that. Plus with the crossbow, this move is real cool. And I’m a big Clint Eastwood fan. Let’s do this for Clint. And I gotta tell you, now there’s ponchos all over the place. Daryl ponchos are sold in little plastic bags. Action figures have ponchos, so it was a good idea, I think.”
Reedus: “The place that we’re at, the underground chamber that we’re at, it has air-locked doors. There’s only a certain amount of air. The thing is, we sleep in these chambers for up to six months. And we wake up and take care of the place. One of the things is, we start loosing our air right away. There’s no air here, there’s no air there, it becomes sort of a storyline … to to repopulate the Earth (when we get the call) that it’s OK to come back out…. [Djimon Hounsou and I] have the same job, but he sort of views his job as a scientist and I kind of view our jobs as janitors. Well-qualified janitors, and I feel like we’re being duped, and he’s constantly looking for hope. Through the course of the film there’s a cat-and-mouse psychological war going on between us…”
“There’s hair woven into this bracelet,” Norman Reedus says, pointing to a thin band resting in a glass case. “This human hair will last for centuries.” He stands still and mm-hmms, the silence between us revealing that we’re both processing the density of this fact.
Reedus and I are looking at shadowboxes of hair art—elaborate keepsakes, jewelry, and wreaths constructed by craftsmen in the Victorian era by weaving hair from deceased loved ones that were prominently displayed in homes—hanging neatly on a wall. We are the only two people walking through the Morbid Anatomy Museum on a Wednesday afternoon in Brooklyn and Reedus is quietly, closely observing the hair wreaths, picking up on each detail.
He walks toward the adjacent wall, where family portraits from a similar time period hang sweetly, as if you’d expect to find a fireplace and warm rug beneath them. On closer inspection, the photographs are all post-mortem—funereal portraits of babies, propped up in bassinets, grandfathers in coffins surrounded by frozen-faced family members. All of the images are sepia-tinged.
“Look at all these women crying,” he says, and after a pause: “This is depressing as fuck.” It had been the actor’s idea for us to check out the Morbid Anatomy Museum for our interview—a suggestion he later tells me was inspired by his potentially having an art opening there—and despite the museum’s grim collection, there wouldn’t be a more fitting place to get to know an actor and artist whose life is inextricably linked to death.
Reedus has played Daryl Dixon, the crossbow-slinging zombie-fighting man of few words, on AMC’s The Walking Dead for five seasons, and he’ll star in the forthcoming post-apocalyptic survival thriller Air this spring, but witnessing the constant annihilation of human life—as he knows it—doesn’t bring him down. In fact, with his new book of photography, The Sun’s Coming Up… Like A Big Bald Head, it’s clear to see that all that gloom and doom inspires him.
“I didn’t even realize I was doing it until people told me, but I like trying to make dark things pretty,” he explains as we look at macabre images of the deceased. “I didn’t really realize that was a style.” The actor’s photographs are often black-and-white and slightly sinister; images of scenes in all the cities he’s traveled to, but mostly St. Petersburg and Moscow. Reedus tells me his artistic talents span from sculpture to painting to photography, but the book (and its accompanying Thanks For All the Niceness, a collection of Daryl Dixon fan art) seems to represent a big part of who he is.
“The title is from a Laurie Anderson song, ‘Sharkey’s Day.’ When I was little, my mom brought me to one of [Laurie Anderson’s] concerts, and she came out with this glow-in-the-dark violin—wrah wrah wrah wrah—and her head popped up on a screen behind her and she sang, ‘The sun’s coming up like a big bald head’ and it always stayed with me.”
We move into the museum’s adjoining library, where he pages through a coffee table book about levitation and exorcism. “Debbie Harry introduced me to Lou Reed and to Laurie.” He goes on to describe what it was like to attend Lou Reed’s Harlem memorial service in 2013, noting that, “It wasn’t just about his life but his attitude and all the people who he influenced.” I make note that Reedus is able to see even the most tragic of events through an excitable, empathetic lens. His mind appears to be working double-time but he’s citing people’s names and old stories with obvious ease.
“There’s this guy who said he had ectoplasm coming out of his mouth, but they found out that it was goose fat and cotton blended together and someone would hand it to him when no one was looking,” Reedus says as he points out the hoax in the levitation book’s glossy pages.
We’re sitting at a table with an emerald green banker’s lamp and a stack of books on strange deaths as we begin chatting with the museum’s volunteer librarian Steve, a man in his 70s. Steve has lived in New York for 50 years, and he’s lamenting about how the city has changed. Reedus—a former resident of Florida, Colorado, and California—has made his home comfortably in Chinatown, N.Y.C., where he has lived for the last 16 years.
Steve shares stories about the slam poetry clubs of the Lower East Side in the ’60s. Reedus looks like he’s made a fast friend. We converse about art and the city and it doesn’t feel strange that all around us are jars filled with dead pigs and ostrich feet and books on how to taxidermy an owl. It’s par for the course when Reedus tells me about his enviable ability to skin snakes. Blithely, he points out the difficulty of pulling the skin off a boa constrictor.
We page through a few more books and discover a petrified stingray on a shelf. Norman says, “I got my son a stingray and it kept dying so I kept replacing it. Nothing smells worse than a dead stingray.”
Reedus and I decide it’s time for coffee.
Norman Reedus has a very familiar face. From the cult classic Boondock Saints to The Walking Dead’s beloved Daryl. And then there’s his lengthy reel of music videos—both in front of and behind the lens. He’s in a position where he can stop and say hi to everyone, and he does—taking photos when asked.
We walk a block or two to Four & Twenty Blackbirds, a pie shop in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn, its dark wood tables and low-key vibe making room for relaxed conversation. Reedus orders a slice of salted honey pie and he tells me about what it’s like to spend eight months of the year filming in Georgia.
“I have to say that as far as my working life, I became really at ease and comfortable and proud of my work when I got to Georgia. It all kind of fell into place there. Acting in New York and acting in L.A. is such a grind and it’s such a hustle.” Reedus opted for a residence in the woods outside of Atlanta, a break from city life, he commutes to work each day. “Southern Georgia is a character on our show. You couldn’t make that show in Burbank or anywhere else. I guess it’s like any other job. If you like your job, it’s not a drag to go to work.”
“Would you ever consider moving down there full-time?” I ask.
“When I’m riding my bike through the country and leaves are falling and the sun’s going down and I have a T-shirt on, yes.” He nods. To contrast, the film shoot for Air—which also stars Djimon Hounsou, a Beninese model and actor known for his role in Blood Diamond—forced him into a “dusty, moody, you-don’t-see-sunlight-the-entire-day sort of vibe.” The film was shot in “something that looked like a missile silo” in Vancouver.
“I suffocate during a portion of the movie,” he says, pie plate wiped clean. “I have capillaries popping out of my face and I’m kind of purple. I’d be in the makeup trailer early in the morning and I’d look over at Djimon and he’d just be sitting there beautiful, and they’re making him even better looking, and they’d be making me get purple veins, and I’d be like ‘this is bullshit.’” I think back to what he told me about his Walking Dead injuries—stitches, scars, five black eyes—“They beat the shit out of me on a daily basis.”
Mulling over our discussions of death, art, music, short film, work, parenting, the disco days of N.Y.C., and that double-time mind, I ask Reedus if he sleeps well. “No, not really,” he replies. “I think my idea of a big vacation would to just be in bed for four days, not moving.”
Later that night, he explains, he has a FaceTime call with a young punk band called The Bots. They’ve asked him to film their music video. He lights up while unraveling ideas for the shoot, and I wonder: If Reedus were actually given four full days to not move, how long would it take him to get up and start going again, ready to battle his next big idea? I bet on the rising of a big, baldhead sun.
