Q: Hell on Wheels was picked up for a third season and got a new executive producer, John Wirth. Congrats! What's been your reaction?
A: I'm very excited about it. From what I understand, he's a hell of a leader and a hell of guy. We were emailing yesterday about our favorite bands, and I was like, "Oh, okay, we're going to like each other."
Q: What excites you the most about returning to the show?
A: First of all, I just love this job. It's my favorite job that I've had as a professional actor. I love getting paid to ride a horse. I love the amount of input that I get to have. And I'm excited to see, after the utter devastation at the end of Season 2, I'm interested to see where we start Cullen Bohannon. Everybody keeps asking me, "What's going to happen?" And I honestly don't know! [Laughs]
