Very Handsome Man Jason Momoa Will Star in a Netflix Western About Fur Trading

Thank you, Lord, for these gifts which we are about to receive.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Netflix’s latest drama will be the Western Frontier, starring Momoa as well as Alun Armstrong, Landon Liboiron and Zoe Boyle. It isn’t your standard dusty-gunslinger-comes-to-town affair—though, honestly it could be about paint drying, and if they made Momoa the star it would be worth at least 15 minutes:

The series is described by Netflix as “an action-packed adventure drama following the chaotic and violent struggle to control wealth and power in the North American fur trade in the late 18th century. Told from multiple perspectives, the series takes place in a world where business negotiations might be resolved with close-quarter hatchet fights, and where delicate relations between Native tribes and Europeans can spark bloody conflicts.”


Made it through this entire post without making a single beaver joke!
