Exclusive Banshee Video Sneak Peek: There's a New Sheriff in Town -- and He's Ripped!

Talk about good timing.

In this exclusive clip from Friday’s premiere of Cinemax’s new drama Banshee, an inopportune phone call becomes quite fortuitous for Antony Starr‘s Lucas, an ex-convict and master thief (we wouldn’t mind him stealing a set of those washboard abs for us) who finds himself in a pickle.

(Later in the episode, Lucas assumes the identity of the incoming sheriff of Banshee, Penn. – that would be the lifeless guy on the ground — and continues to carry on his criminal activities even as a group of bad guys hunts him down.)

The new series from True Blood‘s Alan Ball and House‘s Greg Yaitanes debuts Friday at 10/9c.  Press PLAY on the video below, then hit the comments: Are you planning to tune in?

    I had to do a trip take because he is like an identical twin to Scott Speedman!

    • Shaun says:

      I thought he looked more like guy from Spartacus.

    • Curly Girly says:

      That’s exactly what I thought!! He could be Scott Speedman’s doppleganger!

    • Stacie says:

      I thought it was scott speedman for the first few episodes! Then had to make sure , cause there were some things that made me think that it might not be him! I am so glad that I wasn’t the only one who thought that.
      Can’t wait for the second season!!!!!

    Anthony Starr? Good lord, I haven’t seen this kid since he bested Goliath on Xena. He’s gotten a lot more buff and gruff. I approve.

    Looking forward to seeing Van West rock the US in Banshee…
