7 Reasons Why Aaron Paul And Norman Reedus Should Totally Be Best Friends

Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul and The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus have come together in what is possibly the most fan-fic-inspiring real-life meeting of all time. Paul and Reedus met last Thursday at a Variety Studio event and appeared to be on the fast-track train to soul-mate town, uniting Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead fandoms in friendship and solidarity. We forgive you, AMC, for taking Breaking Bad away from us and leaving us hanging with that Walking Dead Season 4 finale cliffhanger. It's okay now, though, because this budding friendship between Aaron Paul and Norman Reedus is all we've ever wanted. Paul and Reedus are the new Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss. A Tumblr explosion is imminent.

The two actors will soon be appearing together in Triple Nine , a heist film directed by John Hillcoat, with Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kate Winslet, Anthony Mackie, Aaron Paul, Teresa Palmer, and Gal Gadot, adding fuel to the fan-fic fire and warming our hearts forever. Aaron Paul and Norman Reedus are a match made in heaven. A heaven populated by meth-cooking zombies. They go together like peanut butter and jelly, peas and carrots, butter on toast. Let us count the reasons why they now have to be best buds:

They kind of look alike.

The Breaking Dead.
