‘The Walking Dead’ star Michael Rooker praises Norman Reedus and says the two ‘jive’ and ‘there was history’

Michael Rooker, who played Merle Dixon on AMC’s The Walking Dead, recently shared his thoughts on his co-star Norman Reedus during an interview on Conversations Live.

“I mean we built these two characters independently, yet at the same time, they came out feeling like brothers. Totally, these two guys felt like that we had grown up together. There was history. And how that works, you know, I’m not sure if anybody really knows. It’s just sometimes you jive with the material, you dig it, you jive with the other actor, man, and you’re just riffing on, and it just becomes this musical orchestra, a duet if you will. And we just hit it off you know on the set, and we just kept on doing it.”

Fans of the show know that Merle will not be back for Walking Dead season 4 as Rooker just landed a role in Marvel’s Guardian of the Galaxy.

Dead returns to production in May, with a schedule October 14 air date for the beginning of the fourth season.
