So, now I know I wasn’t the only frozen to my couch and staring bug-eyed at the screen last night, before being plagued by zombie nightmares. Deadline reports that 7.3 million people tuned in to the season two premiere of The Walking Dead, making it the most-watched single telecast in basic cable history. That means star Norman Reedus, who plays good-ol’ boy Daryl, might be seeing more of the freaky fan encounters he spoke about on this morning’s Big Morning Buzz Live.
“Besides people buying my address on eBay and showing up at my door — doesn’t that seem illegal? — there were two very sweet Japanese girls who flew in from Tokyo, who leaned in front of me with a plastic bottle and opened it up and held it to my lips and said, ‘Please blow,’” Norman recalled. “So I blew my breath into a bottle and they sealed it up on video and I signed it and they took it back to Japan.”
Asked if that, too, wound up on eBay, the man also known as Lady Gaga’s Judas speculated, “They’re probably doing voodoo on it right now.”
