Drinking Beers with Billy Wickman from Hell on Wheels

Yesterday, I dropped by the home of Surrey’s own actor, rapper and comedian, Billy Wickman, who plays Heckard on the hit AMC show, Hell on Wheels. In keeping with Fall and the Thanksgiving season, I grabbed us some big bottles of Red Racer Spiced Pumpkin Ale from Surrey’s award winning Central City Brewery. Damn good stuff!

Over our beers we discussed Hell on Wheels and I gained some insight into his character and production of the show.

Billy also shared some stories about his alter ego, Billy Botoxx of the satirical rap group featured in his web series the Game Genies with partner Sean Amsing AKA Kaboom Atomic.
