Travis Fimmel to play Wyatt Earp in new History anthology series

4 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

THR is reporting that Vikings star Travis Fimmel is reuniting with History for an as-yet-untitled anthology project, which explore “iconic sinners and anti-heroes throughout history”. The first instalment will tell the story of Wyatt Earp, with Fimmel taking on the role of the Old West gunslinger as we delve into Earp’s days in Dodge City through to his time as a lawman in Tombstone, Arizona – and of course the famous Gunfight at the O.K. Corral.

“I’ve always been fascinated with what motivates people’s transgressions and the scandalous journey into infamy,” said Fimmel, who is also executive producing, as well as writing the first episode. “I wanted to re-examine stories people think they know without the rose-colored glasses of Hollywood and let the audience decide for themselves if people like Wyatt Earp were sinners or victims of life circumstances.

I know my TV Fanatics, and you are all up to date on the latest Vikings news.

So, proceed at your own risk. There is a spoiler ahead if you've been a poor Vikings fan and your head has been in the sand.

Since I watched what I'm avoiding talking about over the Christmas holiday, hopefully you've either watched or turned back by now. And...we're off!

Deadline announced Travis Fimmel will remain with the History family after his expected, but nonetheless sad and shocking death on Vikings.

What's his next project you ask?

It's very exciting. Even if you haven't been a fan of his previous work, you'll be able to see the value to his project.

It's based on an original idea by Fimmel, and he's written the first episode and is also going to be executive producing and starring in a new anthology series.

Vikings recap: Revenge served blood eagle style, and Wessex is next

19 January 2017 10:24 AM, PST | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

The energy of Vikings post-Ragnar Lothbrok could have been the undoing of the series. Luckily we have such a cast and interesting array of characters that though the exit of lead actor Travis Fimmel as Ragnar stung for fans, it has been soothed by the interplay of his sons and the power vacuum it left in the wake of Aelle’s murder of the beloved Viking hero. The best line of last night’s action-packed episode, titled Revenge, was the display of Norse battle power and desire to avenge their beloved Ragnar, succinctly delivered by Floki at the end of the episode...read more »

18 January 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Clive Standen had to learn "a very particular set of skills" to take on Liam Neeson's iconic Taken character -- and then some!

Et hopped on the phone with the 35-year-old actor last month, where he opened up about what it took to step into Bryan Mills' shoes for the upcoming NBC series, starting with losing a bit of his trademark Viking bulk.

Exclusive: 'Vikings' Star Clive Standen Talks Rollo's Absence, Teases 'Fiery' Reunion Between Rollo and Bjorn

"With any new character, you have to wipe the canvas clean and start from the beginning," Standen shared. "Physically, I weighed 220 pounds to play Rollo [on History Channel's Vikings], but for Bryan Mills, he's a spy. So I had to lose quite a lot of weight to get in shape for Bryan Mills in an entirely different way."

"[Mills] is not an action hero, he's covert, and there's a big difference," he added. "So I tried to kind of lose a »

Instead of wallowing in the death and misery of this past season, in the latest episode of Vikings the sons of Ragnar Lothbrok use Odin’s grave message as a rallying point call to arms to regroup and assemble the largest military strike Western Europe had seen to that point, “The Great Army”, also known by the Anglo Saxons as the Great Heathen Army.

Ivar the Boneless definitely has some guts!

Et has an exclusive first look at Wednesday's episode of Vikings, where Ivar (Alex Høgh Andersen), who was forced to deliver the news of the death of his father, Ragnar (Travis Fimmel), receives some news in return: Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) has killed his mother, Aslaug (Alyssa Sutherland).
