ACE Comic Con MIDWEST
Playing everyone’s favorite crossbow-wielding zombie-killer Daryl Dixon, actor Norman Reedus is currently in production on the 10th season of the AMC hit series, THE WALKING DEAD.
Reedus can also be seen on the AMC’s unscripted series, RIDE WITH NORMAN REEDUS, which is in its 4th season. Each hour long episode follows Reedus and a friend touring a different city via motorcycle and checking out bike shops, tattoo parlors, bars and local restaurants frequented by the chopper enthusiasts. Reedus’ companions range from actors to local bikers.
Previously, Reedus starred in John Hillcoat’s ensemble cop drama, TRIPLE NINE, with Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kate Winslet, Anthony Mackie and Aaron Paul. Reedus played a corrupt cop that is blackmailed by the Russian mob to execute a virtually impossible heist. Reedus also starred opposite Diane Kruger, Lena Dunham and Joshua Jackson in the French indie film SKY.
