Norman Reedus Talks The Walking Dead Season Two

Norman Reedus is a bad ass guy. He’s been one of my favorite cinematic tough guys since he played Murphy MacManus in The Boondock Saints, and when I heard last year he had been cast in AMC’s TV series The Walking Dead, I knew right away it would be awesome. His character on the show,…

One of the reasons Marvel’s movies work so well is getting not only the right cast but also the best director for each film.

Not everybody in Thor is a mythic God, what’s great about the story is Thor getting grounded in the “real world” as well. This is where he meets Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and Jane’s assistant Darcy Lewis, played by the delightful Kat Dennings. Kat talked about what it was like to join the Marvel Universe……

We sat down with both of them, to talk about the new movie, what…
