Ben Browder’s a “good cowboy”, says Matt Smith
Crossing from one famous sci-fi show to another is Stargate SG-1 actor actor Ben Browder, who will be playing a cowboy in the Western themed episode of Series 7.
Speaking on the subject of Browder (who will be playing a character called Isaac, presumably a cowboy), Smith said:
He’s great in it. He brings that sort of American naturalism which we Brits just don’t have, however hard we try. Yeah, he was great. He makes a good cowboy. He has that great drawl.
He also revealed that Adrian Scarborough (the radio announcer in The King’s Speech, Pete in Gavin And Stacey) was pretty good:
And the wonderful Adrian Scarborough is in that [according to IMDb, he plays a character called Kahler Jex], he just steals the whole episode. He’s fantastic.
Other cast members for A Town Called Mercy include Star Wars‘ Garrick Hagon and Andrew Brooke, and it will most likely be broadcast sometime near the end of September.
