I don’t want to reinvent myself. I just want to work.

However, 1923 is his first television role. In this Yellowstone prequel spin-off, he plays Jacob Dutton. He has taken over for his brother James Dutton (Tim McGraw), who was killed ten years before.

This new Yellowstone prequel spinoff spans the post-WWI era, the Spanish Flu Pandemic, Western Expansion, Prohibition, and the Great Depression.
