I sat down with Drew Waters to talk about his role as Kansas Red in the upcoming western Desperate Riders.
In the conversation, we explored what it was like playing in a western, riding the horses, his time on Friday Night Lights and much more.
The Desperate Riders will open in Select Theaters and On Demand Friday, February 25th. In this Western starring Tom Berenger and Trace Adkins, the action begins as Kansas Red (Drew Waters, “True Detective”) rescues young Billy from a card-game shootout. The boy asks Red for help protecting his family from the outlaw Thorn (Adkins), who’s just kidnapped Billy’s mother, Carol. As Red and Billy ride off to rescue Carol, they run into beautiful, tough-as-nails Leslie, who’s managed to escape Thorn’s men. The three race to stop Thorn’s wedding to Carol with guns a-blazing — but does she want to be rescued?
