The Mysteries of Laura and The Firm alum Josh Lucas has booked a recurring role in Yellowstone starring Kevin Costner, Paramount Network’s straight-to-series period drama set to premiere in 2018.
From Oscar-nominated writer/executive producer Taylor Sheridan (Hell Or High Water, Sicario) and the Weinstein Company, Yellowstone follows the Dutton family, led by John Dutton (Costner), 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. It is an intense study of a violent world far from media scrutiny — where land grabs make developers billions, and politicians are bought and sold by the world’s largest oil and lumber corporations.
Lucas will play the young John Dutton. In addition to Costner he joins previously cast Wes Bentley, Kelly Reilly, Luke Grimes, Cole Hauser, Kelsey Asbille, Dave Annable, Danny Huston, Gil Birmingham, Jefferson White, Gretchen Mol, Jill Hennessey, Patrick St. Esprit, Ian Bohen, and Denim Richards.
Lucas appears in Beau Willimon’s The Parisian Woman opposite Uma Thurman which opens tonight on Broadway. He also appeared in The Glass Menagerie on Broadway. On the film side, he will next be seen in upcoming features All Square and Guardian Angel. His previous television work includes starring roles in The Mysteries of Laura and The Firm.
He is repped by WME, Liebman Entertainment, and Hirsch Wallerstein.
