Norman Reedus Interviews
Posted 1 year ago
Do I remember reading an interview (or maybe a transcribed interview) on this blog where Norman talks about doing the scene in Tough Luck where he had to make out with an actress with her boyfriend watching off camera?

The quote:

I did this one film, early on, and I had sex with this girl in a house of mirrors, in a carnival against a wall. Her fiance/boyfriend showed up that day. So he’s standing there behind the camera , and I’m sort of with my back to the camera, and I’m looking at her face, and I can see how nervous she is. And, she was super hot. I was not trying to cross any lines that weren’t supposed to be crossed, but the fact that she was so nervous turned me on, and it just kind of made it real sexy for me. It became like a threeway with 40 people in the room. It made her like shake and nervous, and it just made it sexy as hell. [laughs] I think I’m damaged  already as hell.

It’s from an audio interview that we haven’t had a change to transcribe, but here’s the link to it (Originally on Howard 101)! It’s one of the many that’s sitting in our drafts folder, waiting to be worked on :)

Also, fun fact: her boyfriend (now husband and father to their children) is Patrick Wilson (I know him as Raoul from the Phantom of the Opera movie).

Odd question but has Norman ever mentioned quitting smoking or any opinions concerning it in any interview? I'd very much like to know since i'm quitting myself. Thank you.
Anonymous asked

Yes he has, on a couple occasions.

In 2000 he did an interview for Gossip, in which he said he wanted to stop smoking.

In January of 2013 he mentioned wanting to quit smoking in an interview about the gun ban,

“I just want to be able to quit smoking. I think it’s time.”

NORMAN SET TO BE MR HELENA ..; Blade star cuts through all the rumours and announces he’ll marry his supermodel.

SUPERMODEL Helena Christensen will marry boyfriend Norman Reedus this year, according to the American actor. 

The couple have a two-year-old son, Mingus (named after legendary jazzman Charles Mingus) - but, earlier this year, Helena claimed she and Norman were happy as they were. 

Norman, 32, who’s appeared in Mimic, The Boondock Saints and Gossip says the feeling’s changed. 

He told 192: “We’re definitely going to get married - this year. 

"We’ve been together so long we’re married right now, basically. I’d love to have more kids. I’d love to have a little girl." 

The couple met in 1998 at a dinner party, but kept their romance secret for a year - only revealing all when Mingus was on the way. 

Before they got together she’d dated Michael Hutchence and he’d dated model Bridget Hall

After the birth of Mingus, Helena admitted it was hard work and understood why some couples split after their child was born. 

But, for the last year, she’s been dropping hints she and Norman are ready to get hitched. 

Norman, who splits his time with the family between New YorkLos Angeles and Copenhagen admits the biggest surprise about fatherhood is how quickly he and Helena worked their busy lives around Mingus. 

He said: “I suppose the biggest change is how much time and devotion you take from yourself and put in other areas. 

"Before I had Mingus I pretty much made all my decisions around myself. Now I have to schedule everything around his nap and dinner time." 

Norman left home at age 12 and lived in London and Japan. 

Prior to getting his first acting roles, he was earning about pounds 5 an hour working in a motorcycle shop in Venice, California. 

After small parts in movies such as Mimic he was chosen as a model for Prada - but Blade 2, which also stars WesleySnipes and Kris Kirstofferson, will push him into a higher league. 

He said: “I play Scud. In the first Blade it’s implied that he dies and I sort of take his spot. 

"I build the weapons and play Wesley’s right hand man. 

"I had to do a body cast because I explode at the end of the movie, so I had to make a few life-sized puppets of me. 

There’s also a scene in the movie where I get mauled by two vampires.” For Blade 2, which is out on March 29, he did many of the stunts when filming in Prague. 

Norman said: “I’ve had to do a few. The first one I had to go from a ceiling of about 40 feet and do a backflip. It’s a good move.” 

Helena and Mingus came to visit in Prague - and took the spotlight from the supermodel and Hollywood actors. 

Norman laughed: “He was great. He was running around screaming and we’d all go, ‘Shhh!” 

The actor admits fatherhood hasn’t changed what roles he chooses - but appearing in The Boondock Saints - still plays with his conscience to this day. 

He revealed: “I did a movie called Boondock Saints, which was finished right around the time of the Columbine shootings in Colorado and we got a bit of flak for that. 

"But my little brother went to school dressed as one of the Boondock Saints and as he was walking out the door he had a little water pistol and my mom tackled him on the way out the door. 

" I’ve just been thinking about it since that day." 

Norman’s first screen kiss was with Debbie Harry and his second was with Alan Rickman - but he admits Helena doesn’t get jealous when he’s doing sex scenes in the movies. 

He said: “The thing with intimate scenes is, they’re so not intimate when you’re doing them. 

"They may look cosy and intimate, but there are 200 people standing around you holding lights and picking their nose, so it’s so not sexy when you’re doing it." 

With a skyrocketing career, a son and a supermodel girlfriend who is about to become his wife, Norman doesn’t have to worry about being the centre of attraction.

Interview with Laurie Collyer and Norman Reedus for Sunlight Jr.

Norman Reedus

At the premiere of Sunlight Jr. at Tribeca Film Festival 2013 we met the director Laurie Collyer, and Norman Reedus, one of the lead actors.  Sunlight Jr.  tells the love story of troubled and poor Florida residents Melissa (Naomi Watts) and Richie (Matt Dillon) who have to deal with unexpected pregnancy in the ruins of the American dream. The indie drama is set in sunny Florida and also stars Tess Harper and William Haze.

Laurie, was it challenging for you to both write and direct this movie?

Laurie Collyer: Was it challenging? It’s the most awesome job in the world, I’m privileged.

In Sherrybaby you wrap the story around a heroin-addict mom that just got released from prison, now you tell us about a couple living on the edge of poverty, how did you got interested to shoot movies about the lower class Americans?

LC: I really don’t know the answer of this question, I was actually thinking about it in the cab ride over. Because that’s the thing – if you’re an artist and you have vision it’s not because you’ve analyzed yourself. If you ask my friends they may be able to answer.

So how did you get with the idea about Sunlight Jr.?

LC: I was inspired by the book Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America, by Barbara Ehrenreich, and for a long time I thought I would make a documentary. Then I woke up one day and I was like “Oh, actually you’re a writer, Laurie”, you can write that story.

Do you see yourself writing a book in the future?

LC: Yeah, I would love to write a novel, but I will think about what when I’m old.

Norman, how did you get into this movie?

Norman Reedus: Laurie contacted me and I had coffee with her in Little Italy and she had this punk-rock t-shirt on and she was just super cool and we had similar taste and I went “hell yeah”.

Can you tell something more about your personage?

NR: I’m a total jerk. I’m the worst. You get to work with Naomi Watts, Matt Dillon, such high-caliber actors and I was just a jerk.

Was it easy to play a jerk or it was difficult?

NR: It wasn’t that hard. What was hard was apologizing for what I was doing: “Sorry Naomi for what I did today, I’m sorry for what I’m gonna do to you tomorrow”, you know what I mean, it was a lot of that.

What did you like about the script?

NR: It’s just real. I like real scripts. It’s a tragedy what happens but it’s life and it’s very much a slice of real life.

What do you admire about Laurie, the director?

NR: She’s got this quality about her that really let you know that she trusts you so you try really hard to do the job right.

REEDUS GETS IMPLANTS

Norman Reedus can’t fix a motorcycle, but at least he’s out of the pits.

 

The “Sunlight Jr.” screening at the Tribeca Film Festival brought out the movie’s star, Norman Reedus, who told us his job on “The Walking Dead” has brought out some crazy fans. “It’s pretty nuts. I got breast implants sent to me,” he told us. “I get a giant box of mail every day.” He also told us that before he made it big, he worked at a motorcycle shop in Venice, Calif. “I didn’t know how to fix a motorcycle. I basically just cleaned up after two giant pit bulls. It wasn’t too bad, those dogs were cute.”

“Anti-Heroic” in FilmInk (March, 2013) (Transcript via @StalkingReedus)

FilmInk sits down and chats with The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus (who plays much loved anti-hero, Daryl Dixon) about playing men on the edge.

By Anthony O’Connor

Norman Reedus plays anti-heroes, and he plays them well. From Murphy MacManus in The Boondock Saints, Scud in Blade 2, Kirby in John Carpenter’s Cigarette Burns (in the critically acclaimed Master of Horror series) and, of course, Daryl Dixon in The Walking Dead, Reedus inhabits surly, complicated characters who perform unlikely acts of heroism remarkably well. Daryl Dixon is the crossbow wielding, sarcastic loner in the zombie apocalypse thriller, The Walking Dead. Brother to the extremely unpleasant Merle Dixon (played with relish by Michael Rooker), Daryl has become the series’ most popular character, as evidenced by a swiftly sold out Q&A session with Popcorn Taxi in Sydney, and a devoted online following. Interestingly, Daryl doesn’t feature in the comic book series that the television show is based on, a fact that Reedus believes has made his job easier. “It is easier in a lot of ways,” says Reedus. “At the start, I never really had any conversations about Daryl, so I just ran with that ball. I got the opportunity to mould my storyline.” That said, Reedus would love to be in Robert Kirkman’s wildly popular comic. “I keep telling Robers, ‘What do I have to do to be in your comic? Do I have to sleep with you? Wash your car?,’” he laughs.

On why Daryl has become so popular, Reedus has theories. “It’s a combination of things,” the actor muses. “He’s an interesting character. He’s becoming someone that he wasn’t going to be if this [zombie apocalypse] hadn’t happened. It’s interesting to watch him start relationships with other people that he would never have hung out with, and to do it in an awkward way. People keep saying, ‘Oh, he should have a love interest.’ Well, if that happens, I want to have no game at all. I don’t want to make the first move, and I want it to be awkward.”

There’s a lot of Reedus in Daryl. Not just the shy yet snarky way that he relates to people, but his iconic crossbow and love of archery as well. In a piece of information that is sure to delight fans, Reedus is indeed handy with a crossbow. “I’m really good,” he says. “I practice, and I like doing it.” Reedus then shows off a nasty bruise on his arm. “I actually got this from shooting a longbow in Japan. The string flew back and slapped into me, but I hit the target. I’m good at shooting weapons.”

So why anti-heroes? Is Reedus drawn to those kinds of roles, or are they just the roles that he gets offered? “I was actually asked to do a Jennifer Love Hewitt movie once, Heartbreakers,” Reedus chuckles. “They called me and said, ‘You’ve been offered this movie with Jennifer Love Hewitt.’ And I go, ‘Well… do I kill her?’ And they go, ‘No, you’re her sweet boyfriend.’ And I’m like, ‘No way!’ I just don’t look like that guy. I’m emotionally damaged and awkward enough where something in me makes me right for those anti-hero characters.”

Perhaps the ultimate anti-hero director that Reedus has worked with is the great John Carpenter. “I love John Carpenter, man,” the actor enthuses. “I was in a car crash in Berlin in 2005. I had a titanium eye socket, screws in my nose, and my face was swollen for the longest time. Cigarette Burns was the first thing that I did coming back from that car crash, and I was super nervous. I thought that I looked like The Elephant Man. [Carpenter] talked me through it, and gave me confidence… I owe a lot to John Carpenter. Actually, when I got The Walking Dead, [series creator] Frank Darabont wrote this part, and gave me this part, but he had Greg Nicotero [special effects legend and co-producer on the show] call John to see if I was cool. So in an indirect way, John Carpenter got me The Walking Dead. So I love John, he’s great. He’s one of the coolest guys that I know.”

Reedus is also fond of his TV brother, Michael Rooker. Their relationship isn’t fraught with homicidal sibling rivalry like the show, but it is quite fraternal. “We have lots of dinners together, and he gives me advice. He’s actually one of the sweetest guys.” That said, the star of Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer is certainly intense. “He has his own gun range in California. He’s hardcore, and he’s a really great actor. He’s super interesting.”

What happens next for the brothers Dixon will be revealed in the second half of Season 3, which is airing now in Australia on FX. Reedus promises that it will be worth the mid-season hiatus. “Just wait,” he laughs. “It gets crazy.” But as numerous internet memes and T-shirts have claimed: “If Daryl dies, we riot!” Hopefully, for the sake of society, he’ll live to be a complicated anti-hero another day.

Exclusive interview with Norman Reedus

Norman Reedus plays the role of Daryl Dixon on the AMC hit show “The Walking Dead”. In our interview he talks about how he got into acting, what he likes about Daryl, what he hopes for his charakter and how the actors react to the walkers on set.

1. How did you get into acting?

I followed a girl to Los Angeles and was immediately dumped. I got a job at a motorcycle shop in Venice called “Dr. Carls Hog Hospital”. The day I quit that job a friend took me to a party up in the hills, a movie people party. I drank way too much and started screaming at the party from the second story of the living room with these giant sunglasses on, someone asked if I wanted to be in a play and took me for pizza to talk about it. They told me I would get paid so I did it. The first night of the play a wonderful angel of a woman, who was an agent saw me and side pocketed me. Hip pocketed me. Whatever you call that and then I booked some stuff and kept running ever since. 

2. Your “The Walking Dead” character Daryl does not appear in the comics. How do you prepare for the part and does Kirkman give you something to work with? 

Well, when I first started I hadn’t really had any conversations about Daryl with anyone, so I kinda knew where I wanted to go with Daryl or had hoped to take him anyway and tried to give him some redeeming qualities. Still a kid that lost everything and that included his mean ass brother. As much of a jerk Merle is he’s still my brother. The writers and producers on the show are still helping me mold him in to someone we can watch grow, someone who doesn’t know who he is completely, he doesn’t know how to deal with people so much. I don’t think he ever even thought about it to be honest, now he’s forced to, to get along. To make it work. It’s interesting I think to watch him figure it out. Everyone helps with all of this. Kirkman, the other cast, the writers, directors. Gale (Gale Anne Hurd, executive producer) etc.. Everyone helps each other, I think we are all honestly invested. Even with each other.

Grossly Hardcore

Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl Dixon in The Walking Dead, talks about the third season but is tight-lipped on the spine-chilling details of the finale, tonight

DARYL Dixon is a fan favourite on The Walking Dead. The crossbow-wielding character is, brought to life by actor Norman Reedus.  

Reedus seems to be as dedicated to his fans as they are to him. Every inch of his trailer on The Walking Dead set in Georgia is covered with drawings they’ve sent in, from likenesses to cartoons of Dixon shooting squirrels with his crossbow. He opens his drawers to reveal even more fan gifts he’s stowed away.

Here, Reedus talks about The Walking Dead (Season 3). The finale airs tonight on Fox Movies Premium (Astro Channel 413) and Fox Movies Premium HD (Astro Channel 433) at 11pm.
The casting for season four is now going on in the US.

How do you define your character in season three?
My character is just a fighter, a loyal fighter.

What was the mood of season three, especially with the new setting of the prison?
It has been just frantic panic. Also anger and what we fought for this far being threatened. So our backs are up against the wall and we are ready to swing, so it’s that energy the whole time, and it’s about who can you trust, and who is back stabbing who. It’s hardcore; I have been to the hospital three times this year.

Why were you in hospital?
I tore a rotator cuff in my right shoulder. I twisted my knee really bad last season.

Please elaborate on the prison set itself, it’s pretty impressive.
Just for us behind the scenes, you see how much work they put into building that thing, which should be in the Louvre! Every little inch of that is so perfect so you have every department on the show giving 110 per cent.

Dixon’s relationship with Carol (Melissa McBride) has taken a new level?
Yes, I like that relationship. I have been lucky enough to have a lot of one-on-one scenes with Melissa, because she is such a fine actress.


What do you think of the gore factor this season?
It’s even gorier.

Is it odd that you have your New York life and then you come down here for six months and have a Southern life?
Super weird. Actually when I go to New York, I just want to come back to Georgia.

Since starring in this show, how do people react to you on the street?
There is a big fan base for the show and people have always said positive things about the show.

Do you let your son watch The Walking Dead?
It’s funny, the first season he wouldn’t watch it, he was terrified. He was a little bit young but he’s 12 now. The second season he watched through his fingers. But in the middle of the second season I went to pick him up from school one day and he was sitting in the playground with this huge smile on his face. So I walked up and said, “So, what’s the smile about?” He went, “Some of the bigger kids at school said, ‘Is your dad Daryl Dixon?’” He was like, “Yeah.” “We love Daryl!” So he got some big kid love at school and now he’s totally into it, he loves the show.

There’s a lot of love for Dixon.
I’m not that interesting. I think the character is pretty interesting. I’m nowhere as cool as Dixon. It’s hard not to look cool with a crossbow, you know what I mean. It helps.

You seem to have a special connection with fans. Steven (Yeun) said you get way more fan mail than he does. Why do you think that is?
I don’t know. I’m always very appreciative of fans. It’s weird. You go away from home and you do this job, keeping in contact with people, even those you don’t really know, they’re supporting you.

How do you deal with the fact that this show is not afraid to kill off central characters? Does it make you feel a little insecure?
Yes, every time I get a script, I flip through it as fast as I can. I think we all do that. To be honest, I think maybe even Andy (Lincoln) might think he might die, every once in a while. They can kill off anybody they want at any time. It’s sad when somebody goes because this is sort of my first adventure into television and you hear those stories, “Oh it’s like a big family…” Actually, it
really is.

Do you think you’d make a good zombie?
No! Would I say ‘yes’ and give any of the writers any ideas? No, it would be awful. I would suck.

Norman Reedus Would Take Matters Into His Own Hands During an NYC Zombie Apocalypse

At last night’s Cinema Society screening of Trance, we asked The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus how he'd survive a zombie outbreak in Manhattan. “I would go to the Trump Hotel, lock myself in the penthouse, and watch South Park,” he told us. “Wait it out. Oh, and jerk off.”The whole time? It might take a while. "Not the way I do it! It’ll be over in fifteen seconds." Note to the rest of The Walking Dead cast: That’s how you answer a zombie-apocalypse question for the one-millionth time.

The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus wants to hypnotize Pee-wee Herman. ‘I just want to know exactly what went down, and, you know, Pee-wee’s Big Adventure is one of my favorite movies, so I’d probably just hypnotize him and make him reenact that movie,’ Reedus said. Sounds totally reasonable, doesn’t it?

Norman Reedus on the Future of ‘The Walking Dead’

Just days after the season three finale of “The Walking Dead” aired on AMC, shocking fans and inspiring vigorous commentary on blogs and message boards, actor Norman Reedus arrived at the premiere of Danny Boyle’s film “Trance” last night, looking like an urban version of his character, Daryl Dixon — with that distinctive long hair and an all-black ensemble.

Reedus lives in New York’s Chinatown when he’s not filming “The Walking Dead” in the woods outside Atlanta, and stood on the penthouse floor of the “Trance” after-party at a private triplex on Greenwich St. Speakeasy ran into Reedus and his date, singer Debbie Harry, by one of the heat lamps, and enjoyed the view of New Jersey together.

“It’s very clubby up here,” he said, before talking with us about “The Walking Dead” season finale, what we can expect in season four, and the Governor who won’t die.

So, what has been the response you’ve gotten from the season finale?

A great response. It’s been huge. I think people were expecting everybody to die, you know? We did have some deaths but it set up – season four is going to be more character-driven. You see how everybody’s changing, how Carl’s changing, Rick’s changing. What’s happened to us in season three, it’s been huge. Everybody’s personalities are going up in different directions. It’s going to come back to that, sort of like season one.

Interview from Gore Noir with Norman Reedus, Issue 5

So on top of your performances in Boondock Saints movies we’ve just added all around zombie killing bad ass in The Walking Dead.. Do these directors just let you write your own part or what? You’re like “So here’s where I kill all the zombies while everyone else just stares in awe” right? Haha!

Ha! Well I guess I’ve been pretty lucky with some of the roles I’ve gotten. I’m really enjoying The Walking Dead. My favorite job to date by far.

Before you got the role in Walking Dead were you a big fan of the zombie genre or were there just a few movies you liked and you could take it or leave it?

No I’ve always loved horror. I’ve had some really fortunate opportunities to work with some great directors. John Carpenter, Guillermo Del Toro, etc. Being on set with them and watching them work has been a real treat. Seeing where their minds are going, or at least pretending I see where they’re going. And on Walking Dead with this crew, it’s pretty suck to see how far they all take it. A lot of fun for sure. 

I’d love to see John Carpenter and Mr. Del Toro work.. You are definitely a lucky man! What are some of your favorite horror films that you’ve seen lately and of all time?

It’s not really a horror movie per say, but I really liked Sleeping Beauty. Yeah, I said it. I think it was the way it was shot and acted. Everyone was so good and it was so so different. I loved it. Horror, horror… The first film I ever connected with was The Omen. I would sit in the back of my class as a little kid and stare at my teacher till she froze up and visibly got nervous. At the end of the school year she came up to me and said, “Why do you have me so much?” I almost cried. I said, “No, no, I love you I’m sorry.” But something about making someone so much older than me squirm really got to me. I have to admit.

Alright so we need to talk to Daryl for a bit here.. What the hell happened to Merle? Are you still pissed or what? Planning a coupe here with the whole group? Because in our opinion you need your own spin off show.. “Daryl Zombie Slayer Dixon”

That would be too funny. Melissa and I came up with a spin off idea one day on set. We live in central park. Bloomberg has issued a statement that all the squirrels are mysteriously missing from the park and nobody knows why. Out theme song would go, “Carol is sterile and Daryl is feral, a match.. made.. in hell!” (You gotta sing that bit). But yeah that redneck brother of mine will return eventually. Pissed. And looking to mess shit up. I’m excited, Rooker’s awesome and fun to work with.

Maybe some zombie squirrels then? Or Flying Zombie Squirrels.. that would be hell.. Cross The Walking Dead with Hitchcock’s The Birds.. and you’ve got flying rodents out for blood.. Better get that crossbow ready Norman! Oh I saw a meme on the internet and it was like “Uses crossbow for silent zombie killing.. Rides a loud motorcycle” Have you seen it?

Zombie squirrels? What the hell are you talking bout man, ha. You’re a sick man. Yeah, I saw that bout my motorcycle, I ain’t getting rid of my bike. It’s good on gas and  feel safe on that, out in the open where I can see all the dirty zombie freaks and I can get away. It’s a way of life. I ain’t riding in no soccer mom car (no offense to soccer moms, I kind am one).


Alright now back to Norman.. I got to see some of the animatronic zombies and special effects at KNB when I had my visit and interview with Greg (which was awesome by the way.. Ten times more fun than Disneyland). How is it working with the zombies? And do you have any dirt on Greg that we can use for blackmail for our campaign to be a zombie extra?

Greg is pretty badass. He and his team are insane, in the best possible way. One of the things I like about how he does our zombies is you see the sad, lost, sick person behind the monster. You feel bad for it and also wanna smash its face in at the same time. It’s interesting to play sometimes. As far as dirt, none. None at all, gentleman with a heart of gold. 

You’re a photographer, an actor, you direct, you’re a painter, I’m probably leaving out 10 other things here.. Is there anything that you’re dying to do that you haven’t yet? Let’s get an abridged version of Mr. Reedus’s bucket list here.

Well there’s a film I’ve been working to direct for like a zillion years. Based on Margo Howard-Howard, and I’m in the process of putting out a book of photographs. I’d like to build a motorcycle from scratch one day. Get some more tattoos and grow a beard (which would take another zillion years).


I was just growing a beard myself.. It’s hard work.. It gets itchy and I just had to shave it off.. I’ve been wanting a handle bar mustache.. They just look distinguished. What are you planning as far as ink goes?

I dunno, I have an idea of a painting my son did for a charity art show I did to raise money for the West Memphis three. He did it when he was five. Was his first art show. Jello Biafra from the Dead Kennedys really liked it. But I got it back. It’s on my wall. It’s called “Mountain Wolf.”

Zombies as a whole are spreading like wildfire.. I’ve seen ice trays that make brain shaped ice cubes for chrissakes.. What do you think the appeal is? Are we all just a bunch of sickos that like seeing rotting bodies?

Yes we are all a bunch of sickos. High fives all around.

So here’s where you dish the gossip on everyone in the Walking Dead.. Who’s a saint and who aint? Who should be a walker already but is still sticking around? We’re kidding of course but really how is it to work with the cast?

These people are all my family. I’d take a bullet for em all. (Mazzara, don’t get any ideas). Seriously though, I hope this lasts for ten years. I like it that much.

Well I think we’d all watch you guys for the next 10 years! (but can zombies live that long?!? haha) It’s been fun watching the dynamic of the group change as people are brought in and others are snacked on by rotting Walkers. How do you prefer your zombies, slow moving menace or fast running corpses?

Laying on the ground.

We here at Gore Noir Mag like to have a bit of fun with our bloody horror.. What’s the use of life and death if you can’t laugh at them right? Shaun of the Dead for example has been listed by a lot of great horror minds as their favorite. Are there any horror comedies that are close to your heart?

I like Shaun of the Dead and really like Simon, I met him through Nicotero. We tweeted the same photo of us together at the same time. Such a cool guy.

Agreed on the high fives for the sickos.. All you have to do is attend a horror convention to see that we all like to indulge in the dark evil aspects of life. I’ve heard you are attending a few of the conventions actually how has that been for you? Any interesting stories?

What happens at conventions stays at conventions. No, I kid. I have fun and I meet some cool people who are really great artists and aren’t afraid to be who they are. I like people like that. 

Alright now last question.. We’re all friends here now.. Norman Reedus and Gore Noir have bro’d down and we’ve talked tatts and zombie squirrels and asked you a million questions.. When can we expect you back in our pages? Wanna work on some awesome content for us? We’re an ever evolving magazine and we’d love to have you! 

Thank God. (Bro’d down? Ha, come on man). I’m down. Hit me up.


Mr. Reedus definitely ranks up there with one of our most fun interviews. I mean who else out there would be down to talk about zombie squirrels and meme’s of themselves floating around on the internet?

 

The interview was released March 31, 2013 but was done in 2012. For chronology, all we know is 2012, so that’s what we’ll stick with for chronology!
