Many TV viewers will remember Rhys Coiro as temperamental film director Billy Walsh in HBO’s hit series Entourage (as well as the newly released Entourage movie). Now, Rhys can be seen Monday nights on HISTORY’s 10-hour hit mini-series, Texas Rising, which chronicles the rise of the Texas Rangers and their fight for an independent Texas.

Rhys plays Vern Elwood, a member of the valiant team of Texas Rangers. Vern is a dangerous warrior and notorious womanizer with an abrasive manner, but he’s also a courageous combatant who’s never backed away from a fight. Rhys Coiro also appeared in TV series such as 24, Lillyhammer, Hostages, Dexter and CSI and films such as 30 Days of Night: Dark Days, Straw Dogs and MacGruber.
