'Misfits' Star Joseph Gilgun Gets Mean On Tonight's 'Ripper Street' (Video)

Gilgun goes from a mutant youthful offender Rudy in "Misfits" to the leader of a vicious gang in tonight's episode of BBC America's "Ripper Street."

In the episode "In My Protection," Gilgun (who was absolutely nuts as a one-eyed defrosted con in "Lockout") plays Carmichael, leader of "a merciless child gang" according to the episode synopsis who gets lady grifter Long Susan (Myanna Buring) in his sights. And as such things tend to go in grimy, post-Jack the Ripper London, a brawl ensues.

You can catch tonight's episode of "Ripper" at 9 ET on BBC America.
