Now that the The Walking Dead season is over, Norman Reedus fans are likely having some withdrawals without their favorite motorcycle-riding bad boy to follow. Fortunately, they have something to look forward to. Ride with Norman Reedus will be starting on AMC in June. It’s not far off. If you’re not a Norman Reedus fan and you’re more into the guest hosts and the motorcycles, you might be wondering who will be on the show with him.
In March, two of the guest hosts were revealed by the Hollywood Reporter. The first guest that Norman Reedus admitted would be on the show was Peter Fonda. The two traveled from the top of the keys in Florida, and Fonda took Reedus to several of his favorite spots.
Peter Fonda is famous for his role in the movie Easy Rider, the movie that anyone who loves motorcycles has seen a dozen times or more, where Fonda rode a chopped-up police Harley. Norman Reedus already knew Peter Fonda from when he acted with him in the movie Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day. Peter Fonda has been a motorcycle enthusiast since then and has collected and ridden motorcycles as a hobby.
The second guest for Ride with Norman Reedus that was revealed by the Hollywood Reporter might be a bit of a surprise to you.
“Reedus is preparing to join Paul Reubens in Texas for a ride as part of the six-episode docuseries exploring motorcycle culture.”
Yes, that Paul Reubens aka Pee-Wee Herman. Apparently, Reubens will be riding a Pee-Wee Herman bike. What exactly is that? Well, there are lots of images on Google but nothing specific, so you’ll have to wait and find out.
In February, Lana Del Rey, singer, songwriter, and model, was seen with Norman Reedus and they were surrounded by cameras. She admits that she’s a backseat rider, so she was dressed casually — even wearing sandals. One has to wonder how seriously the real motorcycle fans will take her?
More recently, a fourth guest for the show Ride with Norman Reedus has been revealed by the guest himself.
Brent Hinds of the metal band Mastodon revealed that he will be in the final episode of Ride with Norman Reedus when he shared this photo on Instagram.
Loudwire was first to find out about this and announced, “Just recently, we discovered that Mastodon’s Brent Hinds and The Walking Dead actor Norman Reedus had hung out and went and got Lemmy Kilmister tattoos together. Now comes word that the pair will appear together in a new AMC series called Ride.”
Ride with Norman Reedus has been scheduled for six episodes starting in June. Now, four of the guests have been revealed. Who will be the other two guests?
The series will feature six episodes of Norman Reedus and various guest stars, traveling throughout different destinations in the United States. They’ll visit places that are relevant to motorcycle culture like tattoo parlors, bike shops, and more. Fans of Norman Reedus are sure to love the show since it will give them more of what they love — Norman Reedus on a motorcycle.
The question on many minds is, will true motorcycle fans take the show seriously? Or will they think that it is just another hyped-up Hollywood show that doesn’t truly represent them and their lifestyle?
