John Hawkes is best known for his role as Sol Star, the co-owner of the hardware store and best friend of the sheriff on the beloved HBO series Deadwood.
But like most everybody who had a star turn on that amazing but short-lived drama, Hawkes has been busy ever since, including roles in the movies American Gangster and Miami Vice. He's currently starring on a new HBO comedy series, Eastbound and Down.
AUDIO EXCERPT: "As a poker player I would say you've got pretty bad odds on [a Deadwood movie]… I know that David Milch, the show's creator, had wanted to set the films in the future a ways. So who knows? Maybe in seven, eight years they'll round us up again and we'll do something. I always thought in would make a great feature film."
Hawkes also keeps busy writing and performing music with his band, King Straggler, which has played at the Sundance Film Festival and SXSW. I’ll spin one of the band's tracks, "Good Man," a little later in the show.
