Aldis Hodge has been cast in NBC’s drama pilot The Sixth Gun, an adaptation of the graphic novel of the same name.
Produced by Carlton Cuse, written by Ryan Condal and directed by Jeffrey Reiner, The Sixth Gun is described as a supernatural Western which follows the story of six mythical guns, each with its own other-worldly powers.
Hodge, who joins W. Earl Brown (Deadwood), and Graham McTavish (The Hobbit) in the project, will play a Agent Mercer, a private investigator looking for the missing guns.
He was last seen on TNT's now-canceled series Leverage, last year.
