Jonah Hex begs the question "Is an 81 minute movie with no plot still a movie?" Starring Josh Brolin, John Malkovich, Megan Fox, and Michael Fassbender, Hex goes after Quentin Turnbull, the man who murdered his family and scarred his face. Meanwhile Turnbull executes a series of daring raids to assemble a superweapon designed by none-other than famous inventor guy Eli Whitney!
Our special guest Patrick Regan, who portrayed an extra in the film, provides us with exclusive anecdotes from the set, be it the second unit's insightful direction ("do some stuff!") or the insane Civil War re-enactors the production hired instead of stuntmen.

Blaine."
