Darin explained why the actor playing George Hurst on the final episode of Deadwood looked familiar. It was Gerald McRaney who older readers will remember was one of the Simon’s on Simon and Simon which aired on CBS for eight seasons and then went on to star in and produce Major Dad. My favorite Gerald McRaney triva is that he was the last guest star to meet Matt Dillon in a gunfight on Gunsmoke (1955).
And if you happened to catch CSI on Thursday, you saw Robin Weigert who did such an amazing job as Calamity Jane on Deadwood. And a month or so back, Swearengen’s right-hand-man, Dan (W.Earl Brown), showed up in a small part on CSI: Miami.
