Famed and prolific character actor Dabney Coleman (“WarGames,” “9 to 5,” “The Towering Inferno”) is set to play the father of Kevin Costner’s John Dutton character in the second season finale of “Yellowstone” to air next week on Paramount Network.
Coleman will portray John Dutton Sr. in a flashback scene in the episode titled ‘Sins of the Father’. The network can’t confirm if the character will appear in additional episodes in the third seas as the storyline is under wraps.
Co-created by Taylor Sheridan and John Linson, the series follows the Dutton family who controls the largest contiguous ranch in the United States, under constant attack by those it borders – land developers, an Indian reservation, and America’s first National Park.
The series averages five million viewers per episode and is cable’s most-watched summer series, up double-digits across all key demos compared to season one to-date averages.
