Lady Gaga’s “Judas” video

Six Ways to Sunday
When Norman Reedus, who played the title character in Lady Gaga’s “Judas” video, stopped by the MTV News offices Friday (May 6), he told us Gaga had everyone on their toes on set — in the best way possible.
“I like the lipstick part, because that was sort of last minute,” the “Walking Dead” star said. “She just jumped up [and was like], ‘I have this great idea. I’m gonna put lipstick in front of you, and right before you kiss Jesus, I’m going to pull out this gun, and I’m gonna pull the trigger, and then a lipstick’s [gonna come out], and then I’m going to put it on you like I’m enabling the kiss!’
“She looked at me like, ‘Is that cool?’ ” he continued. “And I’m like, ‘Rad.’ And we did it. I liked how she was so spontaneous.”
Reedus’ other favorite scene is the opening shot, where Judas, Mary Magdalene (Gaga) and Jesus (Rick Gonzalez) are all on the road with their biker-gang disciples. “We got there the first day, and we all took motorcycle lessons [in a parking lot and] one of the disciples trashed his motorcycle up against the… READ MORE
Unlike many of her contemporaries, Lady GaGa’s music videos don’t typically feature leading men — but just like Alexander Skarsgard (who starred in “Paparazzi”), LaGa’s latest lad was plucked from the genre pool as “Walking Dead” star Norman Reedus plays the titular “Judas.”
As it turns out, Norman was atop her Must List since auditioning wasn’t required — no shock to fans who have been obsessed with the intriguing actor since his “Saint”ly 1999 action flick became one of the biggest cult classics ever.
I rang up Norman this morning to talk about collaborating with Lady GaGa, why the religious controversy doesn’t bother him one bit and what you can expect from “Walking Dead” season two!
PopWrap: I know music video sets can be intense — but I’d imagine a Lady GaGa set is that to the nth degree.
Norman Reedus: Yea, I don’t know how she does it. That Lady is a machine. Lady GaGa is a machine [laughs]. Honestly, they sort of beat the sh** out of you on music videos. At 6am they were saying “GaGa, dance with the guys” and she’d kill it for 20 minutes, then she’d move on to the girls and then do it solo. I was amazed and thought, if this girl can do that, I can certainly step it up.
PW: What did they tell you about the concept?
Norman: They didn’t tell me much beyond, you’re Judas, the song is called “Judas,” she’s playing Mary Magdalene and another guy is playing Jesus. They asked if I could ride a motorcycle and I got to ride my own motorcycle, which was cool – that’s actually my bike. I was actually coming straight from a … READ MORE

Norman Reedus – best known for his roles in AMC’s The Walking Dead and the Boondock Saints movies – tells Rolling Stone what it was like playing Judas in Lady Gaga’s new video (watch below), how religious Gaga is and what it was like to have her wash his feet.
Did you have to audition to get the part?
No, no audition process, I was in L.A. doing a movie and had the weekend off and my manager had been talking to Gaga and she asked if I wanted to do the video so I said, ‘Fuck yeah, that should be fun!’ … READ MORE
