Don Johnson: ‘Blood & Oil’ Will ‘Display the Seven Deadly Sins’ (VIDEO)
The words Dallas and Dynasty will probably be tossed around to describe ABC’s latest drama, Blood & Oil, but the show opts for a more nitty-gritty look at the oil industry (from the perspectives of the rich and the poor) in North Dakota. For Don Johnson, who stars as oil magnate Hap Briggs, Blood & Oil is “a big, sprawling cosmopolitan-meets-wild-west” show full of “family drama… and the seven deadly sins on display.”
Representing the rich are Hap and his wife, Carla (Amber Valletta), who’s “not afraid to cut you, if she needs to,” says the actress. Representing the poor are the young married couple Billy (Chace Crawford) and Cody (Rebecca Rittenhouse), who try to strike it rich by getting into the oil business.
Watch the video above to hear the core cast talk about their characters’ goals and ambitions, and see how The Muppets caused some jealousy between Valletta and Johnson.
