'Game of Thrones' Nudes
HBO stars says show should have more male nudity.
It’s no secret that The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones dominate Sunday nights in term of viewership, but which of their crossbow-wielding characters kick more ass? Well, we went straight to the source.

Celebuzz caught up with Norman Reedus — fellow Game of Thrones fan who just so happens to play Daryl Dixon on The Walking Dead — at Spike TV’s Guys Choice Awards over the weekend to weigh in on this oh-so important matter. So, would America’s favorite zombie hunter kick the ass of TV’s most loathed villain of all-time?

“Oh God, yeah!” Reedus told us. “I mean, he’s great though. Don’t get me wrong, I love that character. When he went, I was so bummed.”

But before you get any idea of Reedus being the sole member of #TeamJoffrey, the actor explained that he is so drawn to Joffrey’s character because Jack Gleeson did such a good job playing “an asshole.”

“Being an actor, if someone hates you on a show that means you’re doing a good job,” he said. “He is such a good actor.”

As for his own series, Reedus said The Walking Dead “has become its own animal.”

“It’s crazy,” he gushed. “The stuff we’re shooting this season so far … I don’t think it’s even going to make it to the screen because it’s so hardcore. I’m excited for people to see the season because it’s nuts.”

“It’s changed a lot,” he continued. “It’s very intense.”
