Longmire Finale Scoop: Charles S. Dutton Will Rock Walt's World

Sheriff Walt Longmire will get a blast from the past when three-time Emmy winner Charles S. Dutton appears in the A&E drama’s first-season finale.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Dutton will guest-star as a detective from Colorado who comes to Wyoming’s Absoroka County to follow up on a mysterious case from Walt’s past. The freshman series’ finale is set to air Aug. 5.

In addition to his run as the titular Roc on Fox’s early-1990s comedy, Dutton’s myriad TV credits include The L Word, Threshold, House and, most recently, a turn on American Horror Story. Two of his Emmy wins came from guest gigs on Without a Trace and The Practice.

Longmire, starring Robert Taylor, airs Sundays at 10/9c.

  • I don’t think it needs any stunt casting. I like the idea that I don’t know any of the cast except Phillips who isn’t overexposed. . I like Dutton well enough but I think it will be a distraction

  • Can’t wait for next season. The depth of cast is reassuring as anyone can hold the scene. There are no weak links. Cinematography and film editing is high end. Our family has enjoyed all of the shows.

  • Really love the show cause not many shows are worth watching these days. Having to wait untill Aug is asking a lot. May buy the first season so I can have the show whenever I need something good to watch.
