Taylor Sheridan is well-known for directing shows that include big names and talents, from 1883s superstars to Sicario to Mayor of Kingstown, and the unending list of projects under his belt. Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren will play alongside an expanding cast of actors, and another Game of Thrones vet is coming to Montana.
According to Deadline, former Game of Thrones star Jerome Flynn will be welcomed to the Montana slums in 1923. Bronn has previously portrayed the loyal sword-wielding mercenary Bronn in the HBO mystery drama Ripper Street. He is also familiar with historical fiction as a former star of the UK mystery drama Ripper Street.
Kelly Reilly hasnt had any difficulties keeping her British accent at bay while delivering Beth Dutton's endlessly memorable interlude on Yellowstone, but Jerome Flynn will not even need to worry about it for 1923, since his character wont share in that bloodline with many of the other new actors. Instead, hell be playing a stubborn Scottish brute named Banner Creighton, who is described as being the ringleader of the local sheep men.
The Dutton family will have a ton of era-specific difficulties when 1923 launches on Paramount+, from financial difficulties to pandemics to droughts and more. And while I may be wrong, local sheep men leader Banner Creighton is quite a decent polite and cheerful BFF, so one could easily imagine hell serving as something of an antagonist for Jacob and John Dutton Jr.
Flynn's most recent theatrical appearance was in John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum, which was released in the United States the same weekend as the GoTs' final episode. Since then, he has directed the now-defunct Dark Tower TV series as well as the TV film The Trick, which was released in the United Kingdom in 2021.
The neo-westerns cast may never surpass that of Game of Thrones outright, but it's hard to hate everybody who's been lined up so far.
- Harrison Ford
- Helen Mirren
- James Badge Dale
- Robert Patrick
- Sebastian Roche
- Marley Shelton
- Brian Geraghty
- Darren Mann
- Brandon Sklenar
- Aminah Nieves
- Julia Schlaepfer
Robert Patrick, who would not want to play a sheriff in Taylor Sheridans' sandbox, is a popular type of idiot who would faw with Banner Creighton's sheep.
When Yellowstone Season 5 and other big arrivals are announced in December, everyone with Paramount+ subscriptions will be able to see Jerome Flynn and the rest of the stellar 1923 cast.
