I love the programming on AMC, no two ways about it. “Breaking Bad”, “The Killing” and the “The Walking Dead” are three of my favorite shows, though admittedly I am not much of a fan of “Mad Men”.

So it goes without saying I am REALLY excited to hear they have a new show rolling out this November. And it sure as shit doesn’t hurt that Common happens to be one of the stars!

He will play Elam, a freed slave who comes west seeking work on the railroad and his place in the world. As a half black, half white man he does not completely belong to either world.

“Common brings a layered intensity to a very complex role,” AMC’s SVP programming Joel Stillerman said. “This part required someone who can transcend the stereotypes of the period and bring the character to life in a truly unique way, and he brings that.”

Look for it this November.
