Tony Dalton on Hawkeye, Playing Swordsman & Better Call Saul’s Final Season

With the six-part Hawkeye series now streaming on Disney+, I recently got to speak with Tony Dalton about playing Jack Duquesne/Swordsman in the MCU series. As most of you know, Hawkeye takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame, which saw Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) go down a dark path of vengeance in Asia following the dusting of his family during the Blip. Of course, that wasn't the end of it, as Barton also saw his friend Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) sacrifice herself in order to obtain the Soul Stone on the planet Vormir. The series incorporates both of these elements and introduces fan favorite Kate Bishop (Steinfeld) and also stars Vera Farmiga, Fra Fee, Tony Dalton, Zahn McClarnon, Brian d'Arcy James, Alaqua Cox, along with a golden retriever named Jolt performing as fan-favorite character Lucky the Pizza Dog. Florence Pugh is also set to reprise her role as Yelena Belova from Black Widow. Hawkeye was created by Jonathan Igla (Mad Men). The series is produced by Trinh Tran, Rhys Thomas, Kevin Feige, and Jonathan Igla, with episodes directed by Thomas and Bert & Bertie.

During the interview, Dalton revealed what Marvel told him about his character before signing on, what surprised him about working on his first Marvel project, how he got ready to play Swordsman, what he’s excited for people to see in the series, and more. In addition, since Dalton also plays Lalo Salamanca on Better Call Saul, I asked him what he can tease about the final season’s scripts. While he was of course guarded about revealing too much, he did say:

“You have no idea what’s going to happen. It’s out of control what these guys wrote. Out of control.”

I can’t wait.
