|Eddie Spears in INTO THE WEST who you can catch on Hell On Wheels, too. Watch him twice on Sunday nights on AMC.|
Into the West came out in 2005 and was on TNT, it was one of the best mini-series that show cased many of today's talented Native American actors, from the Spears brothers to Wes Studi.
STORYLINE: An epic tale of two figures during the American colonization of the west, one white and the other Native American. Jacob Wheeler (Matthew Settle better known as Rufus from Gossip Girl) leaves his dull life behind to strike out west, while Loved By the Buffalo (George Leach) faces his destiny to try to fight a prophecy that his people will be wiped out by the settlers. Jacob marries Loved By the Buffalo's sister Thunder Heart Woman ( Tonantzin Carmelo did and she received a Screen Actors Guild nomination for Best Performance by a female actor. She's the only Native American Actor to receive such nomination. Thanks Anon!) , uniting the two families while around them relations between the two races crumble.
She show will start on Sunday nights on AMC right before HELL ON WHEELS. If you've had a hankering for a western and Hell on Wheels is just too modern for your liking, or you just need more westerns in your life.. you are going to want to catch this one.
You can even catch a very young Tyler Posey as young Abe Wheeler. While Christian Kane plays Abe's part when he's older.
