Common will return to the small screen on the AMC original series, Hell On Wheels. Depicted after the Civil War, the show:
“tells the epic story of post-Civil War America, focusing on a Confederate soldier (Mount) who sets out to exact revenge on the Union soldiers who have killed his wife.”
No word if Com will have a reoccurring role, but he plays “Elam”, a freed slave working on the railroad. (Peep him at the :40, :43 marks) Production beings May 16th.
