In Deadwood Season 1, Garret appeared in six episodes and played Jack McCall, a former buffalo hunter from Kentucky who killed Wild Bill Hickok over resentment after Hickok offered him money to buy food.
McCall was tried and found innocent for the murder, then fled to Wyoming. Wild Bill’s friends eventually tracked him down and took him to Dakota Territory, where he was retried, found guilty and hanged in 1877.
DEADWOOD SEASON 1 SYNOPSIS:
Set in 1876, weeks after Custer’s Last Stand, the first season of Deadwood takes place six months after the founding of the camp. Most of those who live far and outside of the camp have dreams of living in Deadwood to get richer and have a gold claim. However, when they arrive, new citizens find that Deadwood is unlike its positive reputation. It is a lawless place where greed and corruption rule; and in order to make your fortune you have to make something of yourself.
