NBC’s ‘The Sixth Gun’ Pilot Casts Michiel Huisman As Drake Sinclair

Following a flurry of other casting announcements, NBC’s The Sixth Gun TV pilot has officially named its Drake Sinclair. Michiel Huisman (Treme) will play the roguish gunslinger in the adaptation of the long-running The Sixth Gun comic from Oni Press, created by writer Cullen Bunn and artist Brian Hurtt.Huisman joins co-star Laura Ramsey, who is set to play The Sixth Gun‘s hero Becky Montcrief. The duo join W. Earl Brown (Deadwood) as General Hume, the main antagonist, Graham McTavish (The Hobbit) as Silas Hedgepeth, his evil lieutenant, and Aldis Hodge (Leverage) as Agent Mercer, a PI investigating the guns.

The pilot, written by Ryan Condal (Hercules: The Thracian Wars), produced by Carlton Cuse (Lost), and directed by Jefferey Reiner (Do No Harm), is set to begin shooting on March 18, with a tentative release date for this fall.

The Oni Press comic series follows Becky Montcrief as she inherits the most powerful of six cursed guns, and, assisted by Drake Sinclair, must battle the undead bandits who want the guns for themselves. With 30 issues released so far, along with a spin-off title, there’s plenty of comic stories for future viewers to discover while they wait for more information on the show.
