Johnathon Schaech has landed the role of Jonah Hex in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Hex is an antihero type from DC Comics. He is described as a “true legend” of the Old West, and a morally ambiguous gunslinger with a penchant for danger. He knows a thing or two about time travel and the future, but is more at home in the Wild West. He advises Rip Hunter’s crew of time travelers to be extra careful when the arrive in the small town of Salvation.
Here is what EP Marc Guggenheim had to say about including Jonah Hex in Legends of Tomorrow:
“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 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.”
