" "I don't even know whether I'm alive or dead yet, so we'll just have to wait and see," he added, laughing.

" He's also the Cesare Borgia that Arnaud always expected to play--"a warrior, a politician, a go-getter, really. He's now free from the cloth and from his father, pretty much.

Rapper-turned-movie-actor Common wasn't looking for a TV role, but something about Elam Ferguson drew him to AMC's new Western "Hell on Wheels. " "I hadn't seen any material written this great for a black character, especially of this time period, and I was so attracted to the role because I felt like, man, this is some depth. There's depth in this human being," the Chicago native said during a phone interview last week. "They wrote Elam Ferguson as a person who was a slave that had been oppressed but [was]
