In this extended interview (without film clips), SIDEWALKS host Veronica Castro talks to actors Kyle Gallner and Ryan Hurst about their characters (Hasil Farrell and “Lil Foster” Farrell VII, respectively) and performing stunts on the WGN America series “Outsiders.” Plus, they talk about getting into acting and what they like doing off camera, including Hurst teaching Kundalini yoga.
Editor’s Note: Since the interview was conducted, WGN America, surprisingly, cancelled the “Outsiders.” The producers of the program, Sony Pictures Television, has been looking for a new home for the series. On May 2, 2017, executive producer Peter Tolan made the announcement that the program is officially cancelled, as the actors’ contracts have expired and no new home was found.
Born in West Chester, Pennsylvania, Kyle Gallner is familiar to TV audiences for his roles as Bart Allen (Impulse) in “Smallville,” Cassidy “Beaver” Casablancas in “Veronica Mars,” and Reed Garrett in “CSI: NY.” He has also appeared in film roles, such as “Wet Hot American Summer,” “The Haunting in Connecticut,” “Jennifer’s Body,” “American Sniper,” “The Finest Hours,” “Little Birds,” “Smashed,” and the remake of “A Nightmare on Elm Street.”
Born in Santa Monica, California, Ryan Hurst is known for playing Opie Winston on “Sons of Anarchy,” as well as roles in “Campus Cops,” “Wanted,” “King & Maxwell,” “Bates Motel,” and Sci-Fi Channel miniseries “Steven Spielberg Presents Taken.” In film, Hurst was in “The Postman,” “Patch Adams,” “Saving Private Ryan,” “Rules of Engagement,” “Remember the Titans,” “We Were Soldiers,” “The Ladykillers,” “CBGB,” and was the voice of Jedidiah in “Rango.”
