‘Hap and Leonard’ Returns With Mucho Mayhem in Season 2 (VIDEO)
It’s mucho mayhem again for these do-anything-for-each-other friends with a knack for finding trouble on Sundance’s Hap and Leonard: Mucho Mojo. The 1980s-set Texas noir left Leonard (Michael Kenneth Williams) and lifelong pal Hap (James Purefoy, right, with Williams) nearly dead last season after their get-rich-quick scam ended in a violent melee that claimed the life of Hap’s beloved Trudy (Christina Hendricks). The six-episode second season takes a more contemplative approach. “Last season was action-packed and big. This one is slow and murky,” Williams says.
The rough-and-tumble banter between the duo keeps the show’s playful tone intact, but things turn “dark and heavy,” says Williams, when Leonard is arrested for a murder he didn’t commit because of a very young dead body he finds under his late Uncle Chester’s porch. Joining the cast and getting in on all the gumshoe-ing glory are Brian Dennehy as the investigating sheriff, Tiffany Mack (Timeless) as Leonard’s lawyer, Florida, and veteran actress Irma P. Hall (The Ladykillers) as Leonard’s delightful matriarchal neighbor MeMaw.
