On Thursday, Jeffrey Dean Morgan was a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and the 50-year-old actor currently terrifying audiences of The Walking Dead came bearing gifts. He presented Fallon with a lovely gift basket filled with all sorts of goodies from Samuel's Sweet Shop, the candy store he co-owns with Paul Rudd — the 47-year-old star of Marvel's Ant-Man.
He then explained how he and Rudd were inspired to buy the boutique candy and coffee shop in Rhinebeck, NY after the original owner, Ira Gutner, suddenly passed away in April 2014.
"We didn't want the store to be anything else than what it was, so we decided to step in and buy the candy store," he shared. "That was two-and-a-half years ago, now." He added, "Paul and I have literally nothing to do with it, other than eating the candy."
