After parting ways with the Doom Patrol, Timothy Dalton is making tracks for Montana with a role in the upcoming Paramount+ yellowstone precursor 1923our sister site Deadline reports.
The next chapter of what Paramount+ is calling yellowstone‘s “origin story” – which began with the hugely popular 1883 Prequel Spinoff – Introduces viewers to a new generation of the series’ central family, the Duttons. Through her, according to an official description, the series will “explore the early 20th century when pandemics, historic droughts, the end of Prohibition and the Great Depression plague the Mountain West and the Duttons who call it home.”
Dalton will play Donald Whitfield, described as “a powerful, confident man who reeks of wealth and the lack of empathy required to attain it.” He’s intimidating and nefarious and used to getting what he wants.”
Before playing Niles “The Chief” Caulder on Doom Patrol, Dalton had notable roles on Penny Dreadful, Chuck and Doctor Who, among others. He was also the fourth actor to play and star in James Bond on the big screen The living daylights (1987) and Licence to kill (1989).
The actor joins a stacked cast of previously announced actors led by Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren; Ford will play Jacob Dutton, brother of 1883‘s James Dutton and Mirren will play Jacob’s wife, Cara Dutton. The cast also includes Robert Patrick (Scorpio, X-Files), (Darren Mann (animal kingdom), Marley Shelton (The lottery), James Badge Dale (24), Brian Geraghty (big sky), Julia Schlager (The politician), Michelle Randolph (A snow-white Christmas), Brandon Sklenar (The offer), Jermone Flynn (game of Thrones) and relative newcomer Aminah Nieves.
