‘Deadwood’ Movie Starts Shooting With 12 Returning Cast Members & One New
Ian McShane (Al Swearengen), Timothy Olyphant (Seth Bullock), Molly Parker (Alma Ellsworth), Paula Malcomson (Trixie), John Hawkes (Sol Star), Anna Gunn (Martha Bullock), Dayton Callie (Charlie Utter), Brad Dourif (Doc Cochran), Robin Weigert (“Calamity” Jane Canary), William Sanderson (E.B. Farnum), Kim Dickens (Joanie Stubbs) and Gerald McRaney (George Hearst) return from the original 36-episode run of the series from 2004-2006.
The plot, per HBO: The indelible characters of the series are reunited after 10 years to celebrate South Dakota’s statehood. Former rivalries are reignited, alliances are tested and old wounds are reopened, as all are left to navigate the inevitable changes that modernity and time have wrought.
I’ve spent a few months correcting an oversight: Watching all of Deadwood, which I didn’t see when originally broadcast.
I’ve been sitting on the final two episodes for weeks now because I don’t want it to end.
I cannot wait for HBO to kick out the first promo video!
Same-day update: Commenters at the site pointed out that Wu (Keone Young) wasn’t mentioned in the cast. We must have Mr. Wu back! Wu is a classic character and one of my favorites.
