‘The Walking Dead’ got turned into a groovy variety show for Red Nose Day
Andrew Lincoln thinks there’s too much blood, gore, and horror in The Walking Dead.
Norman Reedus wants to work on something that’ll bring some sweetness and light into the world.
That’s how the Walking Dead stars are mulling over their hit zombie show in a clip from NBC’s celebration of Red Nose Day.
So, the two actors imagine what TWD would look like as a variety show, complete with a drum solo by Melissa McBride and a ventriloquist act by Steven Yuen… and Yvette Nicole Brown as Daryl’s Auntie Izzy Dixon... and Jeff Goldblum as Professor Reginald Dixon... and Dax Shepard as Han Solo and Chris Hardwick as Han Solo — hey, this actually looks a lot like that variety show The Red Nose Day Special.
Check out the clip below:
NBC’s Red Nose Day Special aired live tonight. Red Nose Day has raised over $1 billion globally in the last 25 years, and in the U.K. has become a cultural phenomenon where people across the country come together to have fun, raise money and change lives. Red Nose Day launched in the U.S. in 2015 and raised more than $23 million, with the money now at work in all 50 states and 15 countries internationally through programs to keep children and young people safe, healthy, and educated.
