The Yellowstone family has added another member.
EW has confirmed that Terminator 2 star Robert Patrick is the latest actor to join the Yellowstone prequel 1923, which already has Helen Mirren and Harrison Ford on board. Patrick is set to play Sheriff William McDowell, a friend of the Dutton family, on the upcoming drama.
Hailing from Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan, 1923 will introduce a new generation of the Duttons, and according to the series' official synopsis, it will "explore the early 20th century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition, and the Great Depression all plague the mountain west, and the Duttons who call it home."
