BBC America has rolled out another "getting to know you" video for "Ripper Street" - spend some time with Adam Rothenberg, who portrays Captain Homer Jackson on the show. He's a "jack-of-all-trades on the darker side of the spectrum," a "catch-all of old iconic American imagery."

Jackson is also an American, a one-time Pinkerton detective, and a U.S. army surgeon. He's an expert in the world of early forensics but also a free spirit, untrustworthy and brilliant by equal measure. But his thirst for women, booze, and gambling leaves him hated by some and distrusted by others in the police fraternity. And he has his secrets, too.

The series kicks off on Saturday, January 19th.

"Ripper Street" stars Matthew MacFadyen (Anna Karenina, Mi-5, Pride and Prejudice), Jerome Flynn ("Game of Thrones"), Adam Rothenberg ("Alcatraz"), Myanna Buring (The Twilight Saga, White Heat) and David Dawson ("Luther," "Secret Diary of a Call Girl »
