Catch Him If You Can: Lone Star's James Wolk on the Art of the Con

James Wolk

It's a provocative premise: In Fox's Lone Star, Bob Allen has been raised a Texas con man, grifting through life until he falls in love for real — twice. Now he wants to go straight, without losing either woman, or the worlds they live in (respectively, an oil-rich dynasty in Houston, and a tight-knit small town in Midland.)

Video: Lone Star cast talks about the pilot

Following someone leading a double life on TV can be done — see: Don Draper, Dexter, Nurse Jackie — but it can be tricky. Will Lone Star be a 22-episode tease? Will his ruse never fall apart? Will his wives never meet? And if they do, does the show morph into something else? Series star James Wolk talks to TVGuide.com about taking on his first major role (and changing his professional name to go with it), playing the sociopath you root for, and what he thinks of the show's super-sexy ad campaign. ...

Keck's Exclusives: Lone Star Cast Surprised to Learn Dallas Coming Back to TV

James Wolk

At Fox's fall TV party, I shocked the stars of the net's new Texas-set soap, Lone Star, when I clued them into TNT's plans to revive the 1977-1991 prime-time soap Dallas as a new series focusing on the sons of J.R. and Bobby Ewing. When Fox first announced Lone Star, they, too, billed their show as an updated take on Dallas.

"What?!" said Lone Star's top hunk, James Wolk. "Talk to me about this. That's fantastic. It's a good thing we're... read more

When Andie MacDowell joins the new Fox drama Lone Star as Jon Voight's love interest, she won't be playing nice. "Surprisingly, she's a nasty con woman who's brought in to help Bob's father with his idea of going after the company fortune," creator and executive producer Kyle Killen said at Fox's PaleyFest: Fall TV Preview Party, sponsored by TV Guide Magazine, on September 13.

Lone Star, premiering September 20, centers around charming con man Bob Allen (James Wolk), who's leading a double life. In one, he is ... read more

Critic's Notebook: Fox at TCA

James Wolk

No news wasn't good news for the press gathered at Fox's TCA day on Monday, with everyone hoping in vain for some definitive word on who'll be judging (or not) on American Idol next season. No deals, so no deal, said the side-stepping Fox execs.

Who needs judges? Let us be the judge—of Fox's new fall programming, which is the main reason summer TCA exists, after all. The good news: Fox is launching only three new shows, and one is my favorite new drama of the season and one my favorite new comedy... read more

How Long Can Lone Star Remain Plausible?

Lone Star

There are plenty of protagonists with secret lives on TV these days, but eventually the jig is up. Betty Draper knows about Dick Whitman. Nurse Jackie's husband and Walter White's wife have found out about their spouses' dealings with drugs. So how long will we have to wait before the double life of Robert/Bob Allen, the con man at the center of Fox's new family drama Lone Star, is discovered?

It's no spoiler to say that by the end of the first episode, several characters are already suspicious of Robert/Bob's comings and goings.
