DC’s Legends of Tomorrow have cast their Jonah Hex

January 19th, 2016 by Marc Comments


We reported last week that Jonah Hex was coming to DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and now we have a face to go with the role.

Yes, Texas Rising and Ray Donovan actor Johnathon Schaech has confirmed via Instagram (below) that he has been cast as the DC character. A character that, since he is based in the old west, we thought we’d never see on TV screens… and yet, thanks to time travel, he will feature in Legends of Tomorrow.

How cool is that?!

The actor will be a guest star but there’s is apparently a lot of possibility that he could become a regular character.

A true legends of the Old West, a morally ambiguous gunslinger with a penchant for danger. Surprisingly, he knows a thing or two about time travel and the future, but is at home in the Wild West. He’s been battling outlaws and gangs for awhile now, and advises the team to be extra careful when they arrive in the small town of Salvation.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow arrives on January 21st

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
