At its core, Revenge is a story about a fish out of water. Ben is a hip young journalist who lives in America’s most cosmopolitan city with little commitment and little understanding of other parts of the country. When he comes to Texas and meets the locals, it opens his eyes. Some of the people he meets fit the “red state” American stereotype, while others enlighten him in ways he didn’t expect.

A native of Kentucky, Boyd Holbrook lived in both “red” and “blue” states and says that “Retribution” shows us that the gulf between them – which seems to widen every day – is not as clear-cut as people think.

“That’s the genius of Revenge,” he elaborated. “We all have ideas about people and where they might come from… B.J. [Novak] does such a brilliant job of showing us that we are all really not that different after all. We all have the same problems. We all have the same range of emotions that we go through and we deal with them in slightly different ways.”

Holbrook added that his character, Ty, is the perfect epitome of that – initially coming off as a not-too-bright “good old boy,” Ty ends up revealing layers that defy expectations.

“BJ’s character Ben’s deal with his family is very smart of him,” Holbrook explained. “He sees such a savior in [Ben] that he could help us unravel the mystery of Abilene’s death—to the point where he can act out the suggestion that he is the village haymaker. After all, he knows what’s going on.”

Revenge is in theaters now.
