We Shine the Spotlight on LONGMIRE’s Bad Boy Bailey Chase

When we first met Branch Connally (Bailey Chase) in LONGMIRE, we were certain he was the squeaky-clean, good-boy hero of the story.  Since then things took an interesting turn, Branch surprised us all by showing signs of dabbling in the darker side of life.  He showed more political ambition and drive than anyone gave him credit for and that began to complicate the world of LONGMIRE.  Then as if dating the sheriff’s daughter behind Walt’s back was not enough to make us wonder about his intentions, taking political bribes certainly caught our attention.  That bad-boy side was starting to shine through. 
In a recent exclusive interview, star Bailey Chase shared a few thoughts on his character’s emerging duality and why he hopes fans will stand by Branch as the election controversy plays out this season. [Read more…]

Summer TV Preview: LONGMIRE, A Story of Hats, Guns and Evil Lurking in the Hearts of Men

The name may sound innocuous, but LONGMIRE is a show worth checking out.  It invites us into a modern tale in a sleepy western town where insidious evil lies beneath the surface.  Starring Robert Taylor as Sheriff Walt Longmire, a man consumed by grief seeking solace in a bottle, he reawakens from his alcohol coma when a dead body is found.  Murder has reared its ugly head in his backyard and it requires Walt to look at everyone around him in a new light.  There’s his right-hand man, Deputy Vic Moretti (Katee Sackoff); his political rival, Deputy Branch Connally (Bailey Chase); his best friend Henry Standing Bear (Lou Diamond Phillips), and his rebellious adult daughter, Cady Longmire (Cassidy Freeman).  Set in the fictional Absaroka County, the story is backdropped by the lush Wyoming mountains and plains — which is the perfect setting for a town that gets a sharp reminder that the root of all evil is man itself.
