Yellowstone Prequel 1923 Cast

Early in September, Paramount+ made the whole cast list public and announced the roles that Ford and Mirren will be portraying. The crucial point that has to be answered is whether Darren Mann, who will play Jack Dutton in 1923, is indeed John Dutton II (also known as Kevin Costner’s character’s father), or if he is John Dutton Jr.’s brother and Kevin Costner’s character’s uncle.

Here’s the main cast list for 1923:

  • Harrison Ford will play Jacob Dutton
  • Helen Mirren will play Cara Dutton
  • Darren Mann will play Jack Dutton
  • Michelle Randolph will play Elizabeth Strafford
  • James Badge Dale will play John Dutton Sr
  • Marley Shelton will play Emma Dutton
  • Brian Geraghty will play Zane
  • Aminah Nieves will play Teonna Rainwater
  • Julia Schlaepfer will play Alexandra
  • Brandon Sklenar will play Spencer Dutton
  • Robert Patrick will play Sheriff William McDowell, a friend of the Dutton family.
  • Jerome Flynn will play Banner Creighton
