The actor told TV Guide that the new Fox series will focus on character-based drama.
"It's fun, it's sexy, it's different, it's dangerous, but it's also really real," he claimed. "It's a character study. This show is Catch Me If You Can meets Friday Night Lights meets Mad Men."
Wolk suggested that future episodes will establish a balance of light and darker aspects.
"I haven't seen the episodes past the pilot, but I have great faith that [the producers] will find a way to both make it sexy... but also make it clear that this is a real character study of real people," he said. "I think that is their greatest challenge right now."
He added: "My job is to play the character. Play it true and portray him in the most honest light. The [producers] will then take that and they will set a tone."
Lone Star premieres tonight at 9/8c on Fox.
