We’ve also learned some interesting news about new characters joining the show.
Neal McDonough is joining the cast for Season 2, according to the trailer for Season 2. He’s playing the role of Malcolm Beck. You may remember him from credits like Project Blue Book (Gen. James Harding), Suits (Sean Cahill), Legends of Tomorrow (Damien Darhk), Arrow, Rogue (Casey Oaks), To Appomattox (Joseph), Public Morals, Mob City (William), Justified (Robert), Desperate Housewives (Dave), Traveler, Medical Investigation, Boomtown, Band of Brothers (Lynn Compton), The Incredible Hulk (Bruce Banner in 1996-1997), Murder One, and more.
Neal’s character is described as a “wealthy business mogul who runs an area casino with his brother Teal. They are power players, down and dirty fighters who know how to work the system to get what they want,” according to Deadline.
According to IMDB, Ryan Dorsey is joining as Blake. His other credits include Runaways (Mike), Bosch (Sheriff), Ray Donovan, Colony, Pitch (Tommy), The Vampire Diaries, Justified (Earl), and more. We don’t know much more than this. They’ve kept details about Dorsey pretty under wraps so far. Dorsey hasn’t tweeted anything telling yet either.
According to IMDB, James Jordan is joining as Steve Hendon. His other credits include Destroyer, The Endless, Wind River, iZombie, Bloodline, Fargo, Blue, True Blood (Ray), Veronica Mars (Tim Foyle/Lucky), 24, Just Legal, CSI, Close to Home, and more. We don’t know too much else about his role either, but he’s confirmed it in his Twitter bio, which reads in part: “Steven Hendon in ssn 2 of Yellowstone.”
And Steven Williams plays the mysterious Cowboy.
He’s really great in the role.
