TV Guide has assembled all latest cast additions and character information on Paramount+’s “1923”, which is currently shooting and scheduled for a streaming premiere this December. The newest cast member is Robert Patrick, who will play Sheriff William McDowell, a friend of the Dutton family, according to Deadline. Patrick’s casting comes the day after it was announced that Westworld actor Brandon Sklenar has been cast as Spencer Dutton, “Jacob Dutton’s (Ford) nephew, and John Dutton Sr.’s (Dale) brother, who has witnessed the horrors of World War I,” Variety reported. The spin-off, which was originally titled 1932, takes place during the Prohibition era following World War I, with Montana experiencing an economic collapse ahead of the Great Depression. This sets the story about 30 or 35 years before Kevin Costner’s character, John Dutton III, was born, and about 40 years after the events of 1883. The official show description reads, “1923 focuses on the Dutton family’s next two generations as they struggle to survive historic drought, lawlessness and Prohibition, and an epidemic of cattle theft; all battled beneath the cloud of Montana’s great depression, which preceded the nation by almost a decade.” Here’s the main cast list for 1923:
Harrison Ford as Jacob Dutton, the patriarch of the Yellowstone ranch, husband to Cara Dutton, and brother of James Dutton.
Helen Mirren as Cara Dutton, the wife to Jacob Dutton and family matriarch.
