Pedro Pascal, James LeGros and Chin Han join cast of ‘Sixth Gun’
It would seem that casting is well and truly underway for the NBC pilot ‘Sixth Gun,’ which is based on the comic book of the same name.
Deadline reports that Pedro Pascal (The Good Wife), Ally McBeal alum James LeGros and Chin Han (The Dark Knight) have been cast in the proposed series, which is produced by Carlton Cuse and written by Ryan Condal.
The pilot is to be directed by Jeffrey Reiner and produced by Uni TV, the supernatural Western follows the story of six mythical guns, each with its own other-worldly powers. When the Sixth Gun, the most powerful and dangerous of the group, resurfaces in the hands of an innocent girl, a farmer’s daughter named Becky Montcrief (Laura Ramsey), dark forces reawaken.
Pascal will play Special Agent Ortega, the younger of the two Pinkerton detectives who follows Mercer’s (Aldis Hodge) lead. LeGros will play Bill John O’Henry, a gunslinger who is a fervently loyal companion and sidekick to Drake Sinclair. Chin Han plays Chow, a brilliant Machiavellian schemer.
The series is based on the comic book series penned by Cullen Bunn & Brian Hurtt. The comics are available to buy through Oni Press.
