Two Things About Deadwood

1) Watch out because this might be perceived as a spoiler, but Season 3 of Deadwood is basically There Will Be Blood as a TV show, with George Hearst as Daniel Plainview and gold in place of oil. The third season of Deadwood came first, and I love There Will Be Blood, but it’s also worth pointing out that the title of Deadwood 3.01 is “Tell Your God to Ready for Blood.”  Has PT Anderson said anything on-record about David Milch as an influence?

2) Devin Faraci at CHUD published a short article today called Garret Dillahunt: Hollywood’s Coolest Character Actor.  And he is right. Dillahunt was on Deadwood, where he played both Jack McCall in Season 1 and James Wolcott in Season 2. In fact, stumbling upon that link is the only reason I thought to write this post.
