Small-screen zombie-killing is currently on hold until “The Walking Dead” returns next February. Sadly, we have no cures for your flesh-rotting, brain-hungry disease here at MTV News, but we have the next best thing: star Norman Reedus.
Reedus, who stars on “Walking Dead” as bow-wielding, trash-talking, walker-killing badass Daryl Dixon, is the special guest of honor during the MTV After Hours portion of “The Big & Best of 2012,” an eight-hour live stream celebrating the year in movies, music and more, this Wednesday. The Reedus-led After Hours segment starts at 2 p.m. ET.
If you were worried about Daryl’s fate after the “Walking Dead” midseason finale, you haven’t seen anything yet: Reedus will be fielding “Dead” questions from MTV After Hours host Josh Horowitz and MTV Splash Page editor Josh Wigler, and he’ll need more than a crossbow and a hatemongering brother to get out of that situation intact.
Not only will Reedus field our questions, he’ll field yours, too! If you’re a “Walking Dead” fan and you want to know more about the life of Daryl Dixon, tweet your questions along to @MTVNews using the hash-tag #AskReedus.
“The Big & Best of 2012: A Year End Celebration Presented by T-Mobile” will be hosted by MTV News’ Sway Calloway, VH1′s Carrie Keagan and CMT’s Kourtney Hansen and will be broadcast live from MTV’s legendary Times Square studio and on location in music venues in New York City, Boston and Nashville.

The After Hours portion of “Big & Best of 2012″ will feature talk about the biggest movies of the year, the debut of a brand new episode of After Hours, and, of course, some quality time with Mr. Reedus. For more details on the live-stream, click here .
