Legends of Tomorrow – Johnathon Schaech Cast as Jonah Hex

Legends of Tomorrow has found its Jonah Hex.

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Johnathon Schaech has been cast in The CW’s upcoming superhero team-up series as the Western antihero. The popular DC Comics character is slated to appear in the Old West-set episode 11, with the possibility to recur beyond that.

Here’s the character description: 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.

“Ever since we decided that Legends would involve time-travel, we were eager to do a story set in the Old West,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim previously said about bringing Jonah Hex to Legends. “But if you’re going to do a story set in the DC Universe version of the Old West, you simply must include Jonah Hex in it. We’re thrilled about bringing another well known, beloved DC character to television.”
