You got four from us last week. Now here's 10 more you said we missed.
Samantha Sutton 1 / 15
He’s killed zombies on <em>The Walking Dead</em> and was a gun-toting vigilante in <em>The Boondock Saints</em>, but even when he’s not playing a role, Norman Reedus is a pretty cool guy. You can tell just by looking at him that the dude’s probably a badass in real life, too—not so much the violent kind as the kind of guy you’d want to be friends with. Luckily, he opened up to <em>Men’s Fitness</em> about his life and shed some light onto what makes him this way. <p>

He Has a Titanium Eye Socket
Back in 2005, Reedus was involved in a horrible accident while leaving a concert, when his car was hit by an 18-wheeler. He survived, but surgery left with a titanium eye socket. While he admits he felt self-conscious about the way his face looked afterward, it didn’t take long for him to get back out there and continue doing what he loved – making films and acting. Another interesting fact about the titanium in his head? Reedus says that when it’s hot it makes his face hot and when it’s cold his face is cold.
He Loves Bacon
Who doesn’t love bacon? Well, that was Reedus’ exact thoughts when he went fishing with his son. Instead of using your typical bait, he decided to string some bacon on the line. Not surprisingly, he didn’t catch anything that day, but at least he has a funny story to tell – and good taste in cheat meals. <p>

Aside from being an actor, Reedus is also a talented photographer and sculptor. He recently released a photo book, <em>The Sun’s Coming Up Like A Big Bald Head</em>, which went on sale Oct. 31 and is a collection of some of his best images. Before getting into photography, he was into sculpting and created avant-garde pieces like horned vaginas.
He Loves Being Daryl
Daryl wasn’t even a character in <em>The Walking Dead</em> comic book, but thanks to Reedus, he’s now a key part of the show. There are even t-shirts that say “If Daryl Dies We Riot.” Luckily, the feeling is mutual – Reedus says he’s having the best time of his life in the role and will continue to be on TWD as long as they’ll have him.
