Billy Bob Thornton
Full of southern redneck pride, the Oodie Brothers - Brick (Clayne Crawford), McQueen (Travis Fimmel) and Lincoln (Daniel Cudmore) - are antiheroes accustomed to doing dirty jobs for the local sheriff (Andre Braugher) while under his protection. However, when they accept an outside job kidnapping Celeste's (Eva Longoria) godson Rob (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) back from her evil ex, Carlos (Billy Bob Thornton), they're quickly targeted by a group of crazed assassins, with no one watching their backs except each other.
