If you are a fan of AMC’s the Walking Dead – then you know who Michael Rooker is. He’s the actor who plays (or played) one of the best love to hate characters ever on any TV series. He played Merle, sometime villain and older brother to hero and general bad-a** Darryl. On the show Merle was a character that we just kept wishing would die so that Darryl could fully reject his past life – but he was also one of the more complex and fun characters too. The one thing you knew for sure about Merle was that you didn’t want to get on his bad side. (Did he even have a good side?)
Just in case you’ve been missing Merle, Michael Rooker just tweeted his recent excursion to a local gun range where he acted out a few new kills from the Walking Dead.
Just to be clear, apparently Michael Rooker is just as scary in real life as he is on the show. (In a very cool way.)
(Warning… this may not be suitable for everyone’s ears or eyes.)
Look, we all love Darryl… but Merle was the real bad-a** brother.
Keep exercising your 2nd Amendment, Michael. Way to shoot!
