It’s pretty dangerous to give Daryl Dixon or even his real-life counterpart Norman Reedus a crossbow (how many walkers has he killed with that thing and its seemingly unlimited arrows already?!) — but that’s just what Saturday Night Live alum Seth Meyers did when The Walking Dead star stopped by Late Night With Seth Meyers on March 12.
After a chat about bribing Robert Kirkman and being terrified of the top of The Empire State Building (who knew?), Seth brought Norman back for a funny bit in which the actor chatted with an audience zombie and self-described “Norman Reedus fan.”
Apparently this zombie has an issue with how The Walking Dead portrays zombies. “Do they all have to be mouth-breathing, foot-dragging morons hellbent on consuming human flesh?” he asked.
“That’s zombies, man,” Norman responded in a hilariously deadpan manner.
After the zombie went on and on about how his kind are misunderstood, noting that there are plenty of college-educated zombies who aren’t represented, he took a stand. “If I have to be the Rosa Parks of zombies then so be it,” he declared.
Norman grew weary and whipped out his crossbow. “Man I gotta be honest,” he said with the zombie-killer in hand, “you’re boring the hell out of me.”
