Wade's Gang

    Ben Wade 

Ben Wade

"Kid, I wouldn't last five minutes leading an outfit like that if I wasn't as rotten as hell."
Played By: Russell Crowe

  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: The only members of the posse he kills are Tucker and McElroy…
  • Parental Abandonment: His mother gave him a Bible to read, and promptly left him when he was only a child.
  • Wicked Cultured: He has a strong interest in art and nature.
  • You Have Failed Me: “Well, Tommy, it seems that there was a Pinkerton inside that coach that wasn't quite dead yet. Now, I know Charlie told you, because we done got but a few rules in this outfit. And this is what happens when you put us all at risk."

    Charlie Prince 

Charlie Prince

"Name's Charlie Prince. I expect you heard of me."
Played By: Ben Foster

Ben Wade's vicious right-hand man. Deeply loyal to Wade, he leads the remaining gang in pursuit of him after Wade is captured in Bisbee.

  • Ax-Crazy: He's a trigger-happy psychotic.
