In an unusual skit for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Norman Reedus answered from “Would You Rather?” fan questions backstage. Some were mild, while others were just downright strange.

One question revolved around ripping your eyelashes off with duct tape versus only moonwalking through life. “I think I’d rip my eyelashes off with duct tape,” said the eccentric actor, without a second thought.

“Maybe just to do it,” he concluded.


In a question more fitting for Reedus, one fan asked, “Would you rather let a three-year-old cut your hair or have your Mom give you a tattoo?” Again, Norman Reedus didn’t need too much time to think about the question.

“Can I do both? They both sound equally awesome. Look at my hair already. What the hell, you know?” Reedus’ hair has been growing since the first season and he’s already got a handful of tattoos.

“Would you rather be able to see the future or read minds?” asked another fan. “I’d want to read minds,” said the actor. “I think that would be really fun. Then I’d have to figure out how to turn it off.”

All of the questions were pretty “freaking weird,” but Reedus is no stranger to the unordinary. As an actor, photographer, and filmmaker, he loves to find beauty in the strange and unordinary.

Before The Walking Dead, Norman Reedus starred in dozens of small films that were only seen by small audiences. Other than The Boondock Saints, Reedus never really saw commercial success before he auditioned for Kirkman’s epic saga.

The Walking Dead returns this October on AMC.
