Jonah Hex

The last time Jonah Hex was brought to life onscreen, it was a disaster. Despite the best efforts of lead actor Josh Brolin, 2010’s Jonah Hex was an out-and-out failure.

So The CW’s going to bring him back in a different form. Jonah Hex is set to drop by the network’s upcoming superhero series Legends of Tomorrow, and actor Johnathon Schaech has just been tapped to play him.  Read More »
