Ever since they came across that lunatic with the barbed wire-covered baseball bat, their idyllic post-apocalyptic community has been ravaged, looted, and now bombed to high hell.

On “The Walking Dead,” Norman Reedus plays Daryl Dixon, a rough-around-the-edges hick with a heart of gold — and a penchant for employing a crossbow to shoot zombies in the face.
