Actor William Sanderson, now playing Sheriff Bud on HBO hit â€œTrue Bloodâ€, tells Moviehole heâ€™d have loved to have seen those rumoured â€œDeadwoodâ€ telemovies come to fruition.
â€œE.B. was such a suck up. I loved being himâ€, Sanderson says of his character, Eustace Baily Farnum, owner of the Grand Central Hotel. â€œAnd, yes, like the rest of the Deadwood cast, I did want to do the talked about movies – not only for myselfâ€¦ourselves….it would have been nice to wrap up the story for the fans of Deadwoodâ€.
Sanderson says all he couldâ€™ve hoped for from a fourth season of â€œDeadwoodâ€ â€“ had it happened â€“ was for his character â€œto survive the whole seasonâ€ and then, â€œnext, maybe to have had E.B. move on to Governorâ€.
The actor, also known for his role in the classic Ridley Scott flick â€œBlade Runnerâ€, says he doesnâ€™t see his fellow cast members much.
â€œI have run into a few at different social functions or just being out and about Los Angeles. I occasionally email and chat on the phone with Ian McShane. Oh, and have chatted several times with W. Earl Brown – we shop at the same grocery and get our coffee at the same placeâ€.
