‘Hell on Wheels’ Star Common is a Total Bad Ass — EXCLUSIVE CLIP

Common on Hell On WheelsIt goes without saying that in the Wild West, the rules are a little more like guidelines… guidelines that are meant to be completely ignored. But that also means that justice often comes a little more swiftly, and violently, than it does in a more regulated world. It also makes it a prime target for some great television.

Sunday’s episode of Hell On Wheels delivered quite a blow to the head — or should I say, knife in the gut — when Elam (Common) takes the opportunity to punish the man who murdered a prostitute. We’d try for some more frontier-like language to describe the scene, but “bad ass” is just so much more effective.

Hell On Wheels airs Sunday nights on AMC.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
