Quote of the Day: ‘Walking Dead’ Star Norman Reedus on ‘Portlandia’

Norman Reedus Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen of 'Portlandia'

"I love Portlandia! I would do that show, in a heartbeat. I would love that. You know when Saturday Night Live did a sketch of The Walking Dead, and Bill Hader played me? He invited me to the after-party, and Fred [Armisen] was there, and I was such a big fan, I just spent the entire time trying to hug Fred over and over and over again. I think he thought I was a complete weirdo. He might be scared of me now... I'm a hugger, too. But it was literally like seven hugs, and he was looking at me like, 'Again? You want to hug again?' I might have hugged him to death. But I love the feminist bookstore skit. I love that whole show. It's awesome."

- The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus declares his love for Fred Armisen.

The former Saturday Night Live performer was unimpressed when the "Baby" hitmaker hosted an episode of the comedy sketch show because he arrived on set with a huge entourage. "Justin Bieber showed up with like 20 guys. He had a guy holding a slice of pizza. A guy holding a Diet Coke. You're trying to fight through all these people to get dressed," he told Howard Stern on his Sirius XM radio show.

While Bill hated working with Bieber, he praised Justin Timberlake for his down to earth attitude. Speaking about the "Mirrors" singer, he said, "He's great. Also, the guy doesn't show up with anybody. Timberlake, it was just him. He's a real class act, that guy."

Two New Females to Join SNL Cast

Jenny Slate, Nasim Pedrad

UPDATE: Michaela Watkins and Casey Wilson have both been let go from the show.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, two of SNL’s strongest female cast members, have moved on to other projects. So who will step into their shoes? Many are anticipating the arrival of two new women on the set, but this is a huge disservice to one who’s been quietly waiting for a chance to step into the spotlight.

Jenny Slate and Nasim Pedrad could be two bright spots in the upcoming 35th season of Saturday Night Live, both coming from comedy backgrounds. But SNL already has a funny female to light skits on fire; has been on the show for a few years now, and always manages to score laughs.

It starts with their girlfriends calling, and each of them talking on the phone using their “girlfriend voice”—that’s right guys, you are not alone on that one. If you haven’t seen it, check it out above. Good times.
