Bethel will play Ray Weishaar, a member of the Harley-Davidson “Wrecking Crew” who helped popularize the slang term “hog” in reference to Harley, taking victory laps with the team’s pig mascot. Scott is set as Randall James, CEO of Indian Motorcycles, Harley’s chief competitor.
Bethel has starred in The CW’s Hart of Dixie the past four years. Last summer, he starred in ABC’s The Astronaut Wives Club and recently wrapped filming the pilot Infamous for A&E.
Scott recently finished shooting AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead; credits include Mission: Impossible 2 and Enigma.
The actors join a cast that includes Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones), Robert Aramayo (Game of Thrones), Bug Hall (The Little Rascals), Stephen Rider (Daredevil), Jessica Camacho (Sleepy Hollow), Daniel Coonan (EastEnders), Annie Read (Awkward), Gabe Luna (Matador), Alex Shaffer (Win Win) and newcomers Essa O’Shea and Sean Scully.
From Raw Television, the three two-hour episodes of Harley and the Davidsons dramatize the launch of the Harley-Davidson brand in 1903 by Milwaukee friends William Harley and Arthur Davidson.
