Henry “Heck” GilpinPlayed by Scott Cooper
Educated gentlemen were a rare breed in the west, so finding a man like Henry “Heck” Gilpin playing fiddle in a saloon was a surprise for cowboy Tom Harte. Raised and educated in Virginia high society, Heck was supposed to head to law school, but he preferred to break rules rather than enforce them. So he grabbed his fiddle and headed west, earning what he could along the way as a musician and ranch hand. When Harte offers him a job on a horse drive, Heck eagerly packs his fiddle, his pistol, and a handy ability to speak Crow.
