Having spent five seasons working with Robert Kirkman on the blockbuster AMC series, the man who plays Daryl Dixon now is joining the EP on the big screen. Coming out on August 14, Air features Norman Reedus co-starring with Djimon Hounsou as caretakers in an underground bunker where human beings are suspended in cryogenic sleep. The duo wake up for their scheduled shifts only to have things not go according to schedule, to put it mildly. And that’s on top of the fact that the pic from Kirkman’s Skybound banner has a nuclear fallout that has left the air on Earth unbreathable.

Reedus sat down with me at Comic-Con to talk about the movie, The Walking Dead tackling Sunday Night Football last season and what San Diego meant to The Boondock Saints. Check it out in the video above.
