Michiel Huisman & Others Join NBC's THE SIXTH GUN
The Treme actor has signed on to star alongside Aldis Hodge and Laura Ramsey in the television adaptation of the Oni Press comic series as the male lead Drake Sinclair - and he's not alone! Read on to find out who else has joined the cast..
Deadline reports that actor Michiel Huisman (Treme, Nashville) has been cast in NBC’s Carlton Cuse pilot The Sixth Gun, an adaptation of the comic series by Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt. He will play Drake Sinclair, who is described as "a rogue gunslinger and handsome bastard." In addition, TV Rage report that Pedro Pascal (The Good Wife), James LeGros (Ally McBeal) and Chin Han (The Dark Knight) have also signed on. According to them Pascal will play Special Agent Ortega, "the younger of the two Pinkerton detectives who must follow Agent Mercer’s (Aldis Hodge) lead". LeGros will play Bill John O’Henry, a gunslinger and friend of Drake Sinclair's, described as "a mysterious man who holds a wealth of knowledge about the supernatural, as well as four of the six guns". And finally recent Arrow cast addition Chin Han will play Chow, a “brilliant Machiavellian schemer”. Quite a cast, my interest in this just went up a notch.
"During the darkest days of the Civil War, wicked cutthroats came into possession of six pistols of otherworldly power. In time the Sixth Gun, the most dangerous of the weapons, vanished. When the gun surfaces in the hands of an innocent girl (Ramsey), dark forces reawaken. Vile men thought long dead set their sights on retrieving the gun and killing the girl. Only Drake Sinclair (Huisman), a gunfighter with a shadowy past, stands in their way."
