Huffington Post: “Little Merle” Was a Bit of a Problem


From Huffington Post:

Michael Rooker’s “little Merle” was a little bit of a problem for the actor on “The Walking Dead.”

Rooker, who played Merle Dixon for three seasons on the hit AMC series, said the makeshift hook he wore, which he dubbed “little Merle,” caused some nerve damage in his arm.

“That’s not true, I loved wearing that thing,” Rooker said on HuffPost Live when asked about his previous statements regarding his relief to never wear the “knife arm” again. “It was hot and sticky and caused nerve damage, but I loved it.”

“Little Merle” would cause Rooker’s arm to go numb, the actor said, and once that happened, he couldn’t feel the pain and he was fine.
