Sixteen million homes tuned into the Season 4 premiere of The Walking Dead two weeks ago. The AMC series about a post-zombie apocalypse world is officially a phenomenon — look no further than that pop culture barometer, Rolling Stone, which put the ultraviolent TV show on its cover the week of the season premiere.
A big part of the success of The Walking Dead — besides the copious amounts of blood and gore — is charismatic actor Norman Reedus, who plays survivalist Daryl Dixon.
He is a whip-smart, smart-ass, motorcycle-riding backwoods zombie killer, a master of the crossbow and the eviscerating blade, and the others could not survive without him.
The Walking Dead is filmed in the forests and small towns around Atlanta; Reedus, 44, has a home in Palmetto, several miles to the southwest of the city.
Aww, that cat loves pizza like I do.
