If you remember in the early 2000's, the HBO series Deadwood was one of the hottest series on television. Starring Ian McShane, Timothy Olyphant, Robin Weigert, and Molly Parker, the show was as vulgar and violent as it was entertaining.

Now since the release of Deadwood: The Movie, audiences are greeted by some familiar faces, including Alice In Chains guitarist/vocalist Jerry Cantrell. In a post to his Instagram, Cantrell revealed that thanks to being a big fan of the show, as well as his connections with some of its cast, he managed to get himself cast as an extra in the film.

“Snuck into a shot or two in the Deadwood movie courtesy of W. Earl Brown. Standing next to Garret Dillahunt here. I am a huge fan of the show and have become good friends with Earl and Robin Weigert (who plays Calamity Jane) over the poker table and other shenanigans. I gave Ian McShane (who plays Al Swearengen) a vinyl copy of Rainier Fog that day too. Was fun to be in the background watching the professionals do their thing. Check it out c**ksuckers!”
