Francis Wolcott

Played by Garret Dillahunt

Francis Wolcott, agent for the mining magnate George Hearst, arrives in Deadwood and is immediately fawned over by Farnum, who sees in Wolcott's fancy leather bags and his stated intention to "locate and secure an assortment of claims" an easy mark.

But Wolcott is far from a rube, as a succession of Deadwood's denizens learn. Indeed, this conniving figure--who can't even stand to be touched--may prove to be the most ruthless and depraved man in town, no easy feat, even for a man willing to ship whores across the country to support his sadistic pleasures.
