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. ...

Matt's Picks: September 20-23

Glee

Lone Star (Monday, 9/8c, Fox)
My favorite new drama of the fall season is a provocative and twisted romance with a touch of Dallas-style oil intrigue, as a con man (charmer James Wolk) juggles a double life with a rich wife in Houston and a down-home sweetie in a small town where he's pulling a swindle. How long can he get away with it? We'll see. The show faces competition from NBC's heavily hyped conspiracy thriller-fantasy-adventure hybrid The Event, cloaked in mystery and hobbled by a convoluted time-jumping script. But Jason Ritter as the everyguy hero embroiled in the madness is so likable you can't help but want to tune in next week to see what happens. DVR alert... read more

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.
