Black Gold: Cast

Josh Wheeler, Lead Tongs

Josh and Aaron have spent most of their lives in Midland, Texas. In their off time, both pursue extreme sports. Josh is known as the "cowboy" in the family. He loves to ride bulls and almost died once after being trampled by an angry bull.

Josh is hoping to make money by coming to Big Dog. Josh gave up another job to lend a hand to his friend Brandon, who has offered him a big paycheck and a bonus for working the rig hard. He's not sure if it will pay off in the end – or if he'll be even able to stay on the straight and narrow long enough to get the big bonus he so desperately wants.

Josh's main goal is to save his cash and ride bulls. When he gets hurt riding bulls he tries to hide it on the rig – not an easy task with such a physically demanding job.
