norman reedus on the cover

We’re off to a killer start in our 10th year of NYLON Guys, and we’re super stoked to announce our March cover dude is the incomparable zombie-slaying Norman Reedus. Whether he’s appearing in films, like his latest roles in Sunlight Jr. and Pawn Shop Chronicles; releasing books like his photo-driven The Sun’s Coming Up…Like A Big Bald Head, or toting a crossbow as Daryl Dixon in The Walking Dead, one thing is for sure…this dude isn’t bored.

Check out page 106 of this month’s issue, as Mike Guy hits the DMV with this down-to-earth Saint turned Zombie Exterminator and really get to know him. We’re fans here at NYLON HQ, and it turns out the more we get to know Reedus the bigger fans we become. Peep a few bits from the story below and check out the full thing when the issue hits stands next week.

On his junior tennis career:
“I studied with a coach who approached me and offered to train me because he thought i had potential…I played the junior circuit, against guys who had all the fancy equipment and shoes and everything. I was in, like, basketball shoes and had a toy racket. I was surprised I made it as far as I did.”

On his art gallery in NY with Erik Foss, Paul Sevigny, Tate Steinsiek and Ronnie Cutrone:
“It was called Collective Hardware. It was one of the coolest things I have ever done. We had local artists, but the quality was there, you know?”

On his childhood:
“I had a blast growing up. I lived all over the place. I was a wild child.”
