Colm Meany's character has a villainous side to him, but he's probably more of an anti-hero. He really has some major redeeming qualities. I must agree about singling him out for mention though -- his character is complex, multi-faceted, and enigmatic, and Meany deserves an Emmy for his performance.battlingignorance wrote:
Deep into the last season of 'Hell On Wheels' - scene-chewing drama around the early cross-US railroads. Colm Meany is a great villain.
I don't want to spoil anything for you, but Bohannon's comments in the end about Durant and his demeanour toward him speak to the complexity of his (Durant's -- but Bohannon's, too) character.
The pure villain in Hell of Wheels would have to be Chris Heyerdahl's character. One of the bestest villians on the screen.
