'Yellowstone' Creator Taylor Sheridan Uses the Same Actors Across His Many Projects


Advertisement

If you're a fan of Yellowstone, by now you've most likely figured out that creator Taylor Sheridan is behind much more than just the popular western drama. His Kevin Costner led masterpiece has led to multiple spinoffs and two prequel series as well as landing Sheridan a major deal with Paramount Network that includes a few more shows outside of the Yellowstone universe.

Part of the reason Sheridan landed the opportunity to create his own series in the first place is because he proved, after years as a character actor, that he was an incredibly talented screenwriter. His first film was the military thriller Sicario, starring Josh Brolin and Emily Blunt, followed by his Oscar nominated Hell or High Water, starring Jeff Bridges. If you're a Sheridan fan and have watched his many projects, you might notice that you've seen some of the same faces multiple times.

We've rounded up 18 actors (including Sheridan himself) you've seen in more than one of his TV shows or films.
