Uproxx plays a version of 20 questions with Anson Mount, who reveals his last meal would be “a pile of pulled pork BBQ, sides of green beans and mashed taters, swallow it down with about a liter of coca-cola.”

• “I get paid to ride a horse! And to be out in the sunshine. I am forever spoiled.” That’s what Anson Mount had to say to The Huffington Post about his Hell on Wheels gig.

Anson Mount has a conversation with Ross Carey about Cullen’s “addiction to violence,” but now that “he’s hit rock bottom, there’s nowhere else to go but climb back out.”

• On Chicago’s WGN, Common and Anson Mount answer viewers’ Twitter questions.
