Before he stole our hearts as Daryl Dixon on The Walking Dead, Norman Reedus was a working actor and model who spent his time in Los Angeles, New York, and wherever else his various gigs took him. Sure, he never experienced Justin Bieber’s level of fame (few people have) but that didn’t stop 45-year-old actor from giving the “Baby” singer some advice.
Norman filmed an appearance for The Wrap’s Drinking With the Stars series and gave the first thought that popped into his mind when host Greg Gilmore threw out a slew of celebrity names. First up was Norman’s TWD co-star, Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes): “Stubble,” he said.
Norman was a bit stumped when Jon Bernthal’s (Shane) name came up — “I love Jon,” he said before deciding to go with the word “pitbulls” — but pop star Justin Bieber gave him no such trouble. “Haircut,” Norman uttered almost instantaneously.
The name game continued on for a bit as Norman sipped on a drink in Beverly Hills, but then the conversation turned to fan questions, like what is Norman’s favorite TWD episode? “I think the first one,” he declared. “The first episode is my favorite, I think it really set the tone for the show and Frank did such a good job. All the little things that happen in that, like Andy coming down the stairs with matches and they keep going out, all those little things I think just made that episode so good.”
