Last week it was revealed that DC’s Legends of Tomorrow would be adding the character Jonah Hex to the series for an episode and the character has the potential to become a recurring character. But who will be playing him? TV Insider revealed today that Quantico’s Johnathon Schaech has been tapped to play Jonah Hex in the 11th episode of the first season.
The description of his character on the show reveals that he will have a little bit of experience when it comes to time-travel. Guggenheim said this in the following statement of the casting.
“Ever since we decided that Legends would involve time travel, we were eager to do a story set in the Old West. But if you’re gonna do a story set in the DC Universe 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.”
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow premieres Thursday, January 21, 8/7c on The CW.
