Anson Mount might be the sexist cowboy currently on a television western series. The season premiere of “Hell on Wheels” is on Saturday night with the AMC cast picking up the story line where it left off last season. According to the New York Daily News on Friday, the viewers will be following in the latest nightmare that Cullen Bohannon (played by Anson Mount) encounters as he is locked in a bizarre camp that’s really a prison run by The Swede (played by Christopher Heyerdahl.) Bohannon, the former Confederate soldier, will need to make his way back to his railroad job this season and there will be some tough choices along the way.
Female viewers who love the show will readily admit that they can’t help but be swept off their feet by Anson Mount. The actor definitely knows his roll well and it doesn't matter if he is riding a horse off in to the sunset (yes that really happens) or plowing the fields for harvest for a scene. The struggle that the character offers is felt as Anson Mount’s performance shares how a man dealt with the changes of the western landscape as well as the continuous decisions made in rough life or death scenarios. There is no doubt that Anson Mount offers plenty to admire when it comes to being one of the sexiest men on a western series.
The story of “Hell on Wheels” continues in season four as the train tracks finally get to Cheyenne, Wyoming and the characters find themselves keeping up with the changes that happened quickly in the Wild West. With all the backdoor dealings, the over the top attitudes and the panoramic views of the west, the show is a perfect way to appreciate how the west was made. According to CBS 5 on Friday, the show has made a recreation of Cheyenne in the late 1860's and it has both historically accurate qualities and some artistic interpretations to fit TV.
“Hell on Wheels” is a compelling and engaging western series on AMC. Plus the cast really delivers on how the west might have been. Add that Anson Mount is easy on the eyes and viewers have a perfect Saturday night show!
