Jason Lee:
Colm let me start with you. Everybody remembers you from Star Trek tell us about your character on Hell On Wheels.

Colm Meaney:
I play Thomas Doc Durant. He was the owner of the Union Pacific Railroad and he's a very driven guy. He's a guy who has this ambition to be the man who creates this...brings the country together by building this railroad.

Jason Lee:
And Anson what about your character? Tell us.

Anson Mount:
I play Cohen Bohanan who's sort of an anti-hero. He's a survivor of the Civil War who's severely traumatized. We would call it post traumatic stress disorder these days and has found work on the Central Pacific and the Union Pacific Railroads as a means to heal the wounds.

Jason Lee:
Now Anson I understand there's a chance that we can actually spend the day on set with you guys. Tell us about that.

Anson Mount:
Yes sir. If you just go to omaze.com/hellonwheels. That's o-m-a-z-e dot com slash hell on wheels. For ten bucks you buy a virtual lottery ticket then if you win you and a friend get flown up all expenses paid to hang out on set with us for a day and then we have an entire day of just fly fishing, skeet shooting, and a dinner catered by a four star chef. I speak from experience it's a tremendous time and you'd be helping a great cause called the Fighting Duchenne Foundation which is funding three cardiac projects to help find a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Jason Lee:
Sounds awesome. Well season four is on DVD and Blue Ray. Tell us where and when we can watch season five.

Anson Mount:
We're on Saturdays at 9pm right now.

Jason Lee:
Guys thanks a lot for being with us. We appreciate it. And Eye Opener continues.
