First Look: All My Children Vet Walt Willey As Wild Bill Hickok
Walt Willey has gone wild — Wild Bill Hickok, that is — and TV Guide Magazine has the exclusive video! The former All My Children star plays the legendary sharpshooter in the American Heroes Channel series Gunslingers, airing Sunday, Aug. 10.
One of the most beloved figures of the Old West and one of the world's first media sensations, James Butler Hickok was constantly in the newspapers of the day, thrilling the public with his ballsy exploits as Indian fighter, lawman, gambler, prospector and scout. He died at age 39 in the notorious city of Deadwood and AHC — not missing a beat — will have Deadwood creator David Milch commenting during the episode.
Gunslingers, which also profiles Wyatt Earp, Billy the Kid and Jesse James, will premiere Sunday, July 20 at 10/9c. But why wait? You can check out Willey now in this very cool clip:
