When Copper premieres on BBC AMERICA on Sunday (August 19 at 10/9c), we’ll all have Tom Weston-Jones‘ name on our lips. (The UK-born star plays Irish-American copper Kevin Corcoran in the Levinson/Fontana series, which is set in 1860s NYC. He’s truly one of New York’s finest.) Here are 14 beautiful reasons why, spanning his career from his role in the final season of MI-5 (buy on DVD) and his part in the upcoming miniseries World Without End.
Get ready, America, for one bodacious British bruiser:
