Norman Reedus is widely popular for his work in the phenomenal AMC TV series titled The Walking Dead. Do you know that he is also included in the Death Stranding cast, as well? Take a look at some of the projects he’s done through the years.
Reedus has been in the limelight for quite a while now. He became famous for playing the sharpshooting archer Daryl Dixon in The Walking Dead. He also had a cult following for playing the role of Murphy MacManus in the 1999 movie titled The Boondock Saints.
His journey to show business was not a regular one. Reedus was discovered while partying with a friend at the Hollywood Hills back in the 90’s. The former carpenter found himself fighting in the party after drinking too much. While he might be behaving in the most unbecoming way possible, a producer was entertained and saw his potential.
Meanwhile, Reedus modeled for some of the known high fashion brands in the 90’s. He posed for Alessandro Dell’Acqua, Durban, Lexus, Levi’s, and Prada. In an interview with Kelly Live, he shared that he asked, “What’s Prada?” It was thus revealed that he didn’t know much about the world famous brand when he was first tapped for the gig. Here is a clip of the actor’s commercial for Levi’s:
Work On Silent Hills And Other Game Titles
Reedus reprised his character in the 2013 video game of The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct. Set in the universe based on the television series, it is a first person shooter game developed by Terminal Reality and Activision. The game focuses on Daryl and his brother, Merle Dixon as they travel to Atlanta while killing droves of walkers. (zombies)
Reedus first worked with Hideo Kojima during the development of Guillermo del Toro’s Silent Hills. It is a horror survival game that was meant to be a reboot of the Silent Hill mega franchise. However, Kojima left Konami, resulting to the cancellation of the game’s development. Here’s a modification (mod) of the defunct Silent Hills game:
Norman Reedus Included In The Death Stranding Cast
