Disney’s ‘Sheriff Callie’s Wild West’ Strikes Up the Band With Rock and Roll Guest Stars
The Disney Channel preschool hit Sheriff Callie’s Wild West (daily, 8am/7c) is back for Season 2 with a quartet of rockers raising hell (sorry, heck) in the frontier town of Nice and Friendly Corners. Flea, of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, plays the Milk Bandit, a dairy-thieving wildcat, while Iggy Pop and Henry Rollins are the Silverado Brothers, a pair of skating ermines who steal silver, and Chris Isaak is singing horse thief Johnny Strum, who is, yes, an actual horse.
The casting makes perfect sense. “Rock stars are like the outlaws of the Old West,” exec producer Holly Huckins says. “Their bad-boy antics are the stuff of legend, they run from screaming mobs and their faces end up on posters!”
