The Walking Dead stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Norman Reedus took their bromance on the road to the Sundance Film Festival to celebrate Uncle Frank.
It might be snowing in Park City, Utah, but every January the stars come out to celebrate the best and brightest independent films at the Sundance Film Festival. This year, The Walking Dead stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Norman Reedus took in a screening of Alan Ball’s new film Uncle Frank, and it received lots of praise from them both.
Morgan shared pictures of himself with his wife Hilarie Burton Morgan, Reedus and his longtime partner Diane Kruger as they enjoyed the sights and sounds of Sundance. They had good things to say after attending a screening of Uncle Frank.
“Congrats to the cast and crew of Uncle Frank we LOVED it. Alan Ball is amazing,” Morgan wrote in his post:
Uncle Frank is the brainchild of Alan Ball (American Beauty, True Blood). It follows the story of 18-year old Beth (Sophia Lillis) who travels to South Carolina with her uncle Frank (Paul Bettany), a professor at NYU, to bury her uncle’s father after his death. Frank and his father never saw eye to eye after Frank came out as gay, and so the journey is one that opens up festering family wounds while putting others to rest.
Uncle Frank is currently making the rounds on the festival circuit. It also stars Judy Greer, Steve Zahn and Margot Martindale.
It’s always fun to see Morgan and Reedus outside of The Walking Dead. Both men have daughters around the same age, they love to ride motorcycles and they’re generally up for whatever fun comes their way. The two stars may play enemies on the show, but there’s no question that they’re genuinely close in real life.
You can catch Morgan and Reedus when The Walking Dead returns on February 23 at 9pm on AMC.
