Original Show: Deadwood
Played By: Brian Cox
The Pitch: It's hard to imagine many of the characters from Deadwood headlining a show that wasn't just Deadwood 2.0, as so many of the show's characters are inextricably connected to the town. One exception is the travelling performer, Jack Langrishe. Imagine a beautiful mix of Deadwood and Slings and Arrows that follows Langrishe from town to town on his theatrical adventures, and allows Cox to show off his well-documented acting chops. Here's some vintage Brian Cox giving you a dose of that Titus Andronicus.
