Davies, Knepper watch Texas Rising


TV vets Jeremy Davies (“Lost”) and Robert Knepper (“Prison Break”) are joining History’s miniseries “Texas Rising”, says Deadline.

In the show, which will detail the Texas Revolution against Mexico and the rise of the legendary Texas Rangers, Davies playing a shift attorney and Knepper is a disheveled waste-of-space.

Davies, repped by Paradigm, Silver Lining Entertainment and attorney Karl Austen, will play Sgt. Ephraim Knowles, a shifty rogue whose only thought is for his own survival who reluctantly joins the Rangers to avoid being executed for desertion. Knepper, repped by Innovative Artists and Kramer Management, will play Empresario Buckley, an unshaven bombastic slob. He is the only law in the town of Victoria, and he abuses his position to further his own agenda and make himself rich in the process.
