The actor saw the opportunity as a "challenge".
One of the biggest television events of the year is the upcoming premiere of Marvel's television series, 'Inhumans'. First premiering in IMAX cinemas around the globe, the show will then go on to air weekly on ABC from late September, bringing some of Marvel Comics' less recognisable characters to live action for the first time.
Anson Mount will play Black Bolt in 'Inhumans'
Some of those characters include Medusa (Serinda Swan), Maximus (Iwan Rheon), Gorgon (Eme Ikwuakor) and Black Bolt (Anson Mount); all members of a 'royal family' which has captured the hearts and imagination of comic book readers for some time.
The Inhuman Royal Family led by the superhuman Black Bolt (Anson Mount) and featuring Medusa (Serinda Swan), Crystal (Isabelle Cornish), Gorgon (Eme Ikwuakor), Karnak (Ken Leung), Maximus (Iwan Rheon), Triton (Mike Moh), Auran (Sonya Balmores) and Lockjaw are escaping to the beautiful state of Hawaii after a coup d'état has forced them to abandon their technologically superior home city of Attilan. Isolated and completely marginalised from the rest of society, they are forced to use their unique powers to defend themselves from a vicious assault. Could this be the most unusual team of heroes since 'Guardians of the Galaxy'?

Bill Marks is a U.S. federal air marshal who ironically can't stand plane journeys.

With the crew sceptical that anything's amiss and insisting that no-one could get away with murder on a 6 hour flight between the States and the UK, Bill is forced to search for the culprit alone - but time is running out as the first victim is discovered. When it is revealed that the account number is actually in his name, news spreads across the world that he has hijacked the flight and he is forced to defend himself while keeping everybody else from being harmed.

Could "Hell On Wheels" turn into another hit for AMC?
There’s a lot to watch out for this weekend, as various shows kick off new seasons (and of course, there are the Teen Choice Awards tonight, for the five people, who still watch those), but the big winner is, without a doubt, AMC. The channel, which started off introducing its viewers to old, classic (more or less) movies from the comfort of their own home, has definitely moved on to bigger and, uh, more morally questionable things – this is now the channel that brings you The Walking Dead, Mad Men and, finally, this weekend, the season premieres of Breaking Bad and Hell on Wheels.
Walter White returns tonight for one last hurrah.
There are still a few hours to go, before we come face to face with the monster that became of Walter White – let’s face it, none of us can stop watching – but the premiere of Hell on Wheels was last night and it left many people wondering, could this be AMC’s next Breaking Bad-scale hit?
AMC is moving its western drama Hell on Wheels to Saturday nights.
AMC has made what appears to be a risky move by moving western drama Hell of Wheels to Saturday night at 9pm. The third season of the show will premiere in the coveted slot, while various other classic western films including The Shootist and The Sons of Katie Elder will also air on the network in the coming weeks.
"This is a programmer's dream - to have a genre specific, 14-hour lead-in to one of your highest rated originals," said AMC president and GM Charlie Collier. Pretty boring dream if you ask us. Hell on Wheels averaged around 2.4 million total viewers in its second season, or 3.2 million when live plus 7 ratings are included, according to Broadcasting and Cable. The movie gives AMC original programming on three separate nights, with its signature drama Mad Men and Breaking Bad on Sundays forming a hugely strong hand. Unscripted programming will be confined to Thursdays, while Hell on Wheels will be the centre point of its Saturday output.
Set in the mid to late 1800s, the show focuses on the construction of the first transcontinental railroad (Hell on Wheels) by the company men, surveyors, support works and mercenaries. It stars Anson Mount as Cullen Bohannon, a former Confederate soldier who works as a foreman on the railroad track. Cullen is also seeking to track down Union soldiers who murdered his wife and young son.
