Norman Reedus is an actor best known for his lead roles in Boondock Saints 1 & 2, The Walking Dead, Blade 2, and more. What some people don’t know is that Norman is also a multi-talented filmmaker, cinematographer, photographer and artist.
Norman has been extremely busy with filming projects, but even during his hectic schedule, he showed his big heart again during the recent tragic Japan crisis. He put a message out saying he would give all profits from his own 3Films during a certain amount of time towards charity to help with relief. His awesome fans helped to spread the word. In the end he ended up raising $2,000 to donate. Charity of choice: Doctors without Borders.
This isn’t the first time Norman made this offer and raised funds for charity. Before the Japan disaster, he sent out a similar message to raise funds for Haiti when it was also struck by a devastating earthquake. Sales from his 3Films reached $2,500 for donation.
It’s interesting to note that 3Films was produced through Norman’s production company called Big Bald Head. He wrote and directed the three short films titled “The Rub”, “I Thought Of You” and “A Filthy Little Fruit”.
I mentioned earlier in this message how Norman has a busy filming schedule and below I’ll cover these latest projects:
The Conspirator is a Robert Redford movie that arrived in theaters on April 15, 2011. It’s a rich history story about the assassination of Abraham Lincoln in 1865. Seven men and one woman were arrested and charged with conspiring to kill the President, the Vice-President, and the Secretary of State.
Norman plays the role of Lewis Payne who was an employee of Ford’s Theater and ended up being convicted of conspiracy after he attempted to murder the Secretary of State William H. Seward. Isn’t it amazing how much Norman looks like Lewis?!
This film opened with great box office results, so make sure to check it out while it’s in theaters.
Norman will appear as the character Lax Morales in the upcoming “Hello Herman” movie. Lax is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist who runs an online video blog.
After killing students and teachers at a suburban school in Iowa, Herman emails clips of the incident that he filmed to his idol, Lax, trying to convince him to cover the story.
Lady Gaga Music Video
A new music video being released over the upcoming Easter weekend called “Judas”. Lady Gaga will play Mary Magdalene and Norman will be appearing as Judas.
The song has recently been released online. You can listen to the song in the right hand column.
Norman started to show up in the role of Daryl Dixon (brother to Meryl Dixon) during episode three of the first season of The Golden Globe nominated television show The Walking Dead. Daryl is a cross-bow toting squirrelly character that gained in popularity over the course of the rest of the season. He pulled some of the best zombie killing moves!
Norman will be filming the second season of The Walking Dead which will premiere in October. There were six episodes during the first season, but there will be thirteen episodes for the second season.
