Stars from Mad Men, The Killing, Hell On Wheels, Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead all turned out for the AMC Upfronts in New York City yesterday (April 17, 2013).
By far the most popular attendee was The Walking Dead‘s breakout star Norman Reedus, who posed with practically everyone who attended the event.
For those of you who can’t wait until this fall when the new season of The Walking Dead returns, you might want to pick up a copy of The Punisher video game, in which Reedus provides the voice for the titular role.
So why did he take the voice role for a video game?
“I have a 13-year old son and thought it would be fun. [Punisher] was always [one of my favorites] of the comic book dudes. He seems darker, and has more attitude and mystery. I thought I could add a little something to it [since] I’ve seen comic books with the Punisher in them before so I kind of knew what he was about.”
Even though Norman Reedus has played some of the most badass characters around, he maintains he’s not like that in real life. Norman Reedus explained, “I’m kind of a wimp. I’m not nearly like the Punisher, Daryl or Murphy…but it’s fun to put that character on and play with it. You can see the guy brooding and he’s got this whole dark thing about him.”
We all know that Norman is one big teddy bear. One big sexy teddy bear.
