Douglas Booth on 'That Dirty Black Bag,' Working With Dominic Cooper, and the Appeal of Westerns

Inspired by class spaghetti westerns, the drama series That Dirty Black Bag (which is available to stream at AMC+) is a brutal tale about the clash between Arthur McCoy (Dominic Cooper) a sheriff that isn’t who he presents himself to be, and Red Bill (Douglas Booth), a bounty hunter known for keeping the decapitated heads of his victims in the bag that he carries with him. In a town where the line between good guys and bad guys is not so well-defined and threats are all around, survival and revenge can become very dangerous and very violent.
