The Scorpion alum will play Sheriff William MacDowell, who is a friend of the franchise’s central family, the Duttons.
As previously reported, this newest chapter of Yellowstone‘s “origin story” will introduce viewers to the next two generations of the the Duttons “as they struggle to survive historic drought, lawlessness and prohibition, and an epidemic of cattle theft; all battled beneath the cloud of Montana’s great depression, which preceded the nation by almost a decade.”
The cast is led by Harrison Ford, who’ll play Jacob Dutton, brother of 1883‘s James Dutton; and Helen Mirren, who’ll play Jacob’s wife, Cara Dutton. The cast also includes Darren Mann (Animal Kingdom), Marley Shelton (The Lottery), James Badge Dale (24), Brian Geraghty (Big Sky), Julia Schlapfer (The Politician), Michelle Randolph (A Snow White Christmas), Brandon Sklenar (The Offer) and relative newcomer Aminah Nieves.
