When you think "Jonah Hex," unless you have been reading a lot of the '80s Hex series where he's in the future with jumpsuits, it's likely "Westworld" isn't the next thing that comes into your mind.
...Well, unless you're Johnathon Schaech, who will return to DC's Legends of Tomorrow tonight as Jonah Hex, reprising a role he played in one of the most popular episodes of the show's first season.
Apparently he's just as taken with the HBO hit as everybody else, and saddling up as the great, scarred bounty hunter one more time, his answer to the always-looming "would you like to join the cast full time" isn't just an emphatic yes as it was last year, but a rumination about what Hex's corner of the DC Universe could bring to Legends of Tomorrow.
"I think it would be great to bring Hex into the equation" in future episodes of DC's Legends of Tomorrow," Schaech said. "I think he's a really great part of that cast. But also, the Western aspect of it all that's touched onto the other side. Westworld does a lot of this, where there's a lot going on in the West that no one really knows except for Hex. Him being a bounty hunter and him getting rid of the bad people in this world, that's something that he has to go off and do."
While the secrets Hex is keeping aren't as sinister -- and his motivations for keeping them not as shrouded in mystery -- as those on Westworld, it's not the worst comparison we've ever heard, actually.
DC's Legends of Tomorrow airs Thursday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW. Westworld airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
