There is no character that represents the concept of “torn” more than Kayce Dutton. His love for Monica has brought on a serious rift in the family, but the youngest Dutton will do everything for his family. The only problem is despite his efforts, Kayce Dutton’s marriage to Monica has placed him right into the middle of an intense age-old rivalry.
The only person who suffers more than Kayce Dutton is us the viewers. The character is serious eye candy. Who doesn’t love eye candy that suffers from personal conflict? Did we also mention that he was an ex-navy seal?
Our introduction to Jamie Dutton is in the courtroom. When it comes to conflict in the courtroom, Jamie shines. And Jamie did not need his father’s name or his father’s ranch to create his own success. He spends most of his time being the son his father couldn’t ever have.
However, he receives little recognition for that until soon he learns a devastating secret. We wouldn’t want to add any spoilers but during the series, Jamie learns not only about where he comes from but who he really is.
Kayce Dutton – Luke Grimes
You might have seen this actor before in the “Fifty Shades” trilogy or Clint Eastwood’s “American Sniper”. Born in Dayton, Ohio, Grimes soon hit the streets of New York City to study at the American Academy of Dramatic Study.
His role as Christian Gray’s younger brother might have not needed the actor to display his full acting range, but Grimes has more than proved himself as a capable cast member with “American Snipers” and in the series “Brothers and Sisters”. And, of course, his portrayal as the conflicted but well-meaning, Kayce Dutton, blew audiences away.
John Dutton – Kevin Costner
This actor is a familiar face in Hollywood. Kevin Costner has been in everything from comedies to dramas, and action movies. With “Yellowstone” he could add a neo-Western to his list of genres as well as the Emmy award he received for Best Actor – Television Series Drama for his portrayal of John Dutton.
Few actors could show Dutton’s grit but also bring to screen his fierce love for his family and hard work. Costner captures that perfectly. Right from the first scene, the audience is entranced with John Dutton.
The patriarch of the family, John Dutton, aka John Dutton III, has dedicated his entire life to the Yellowstone ranch and built a rather successful empire. As one expects, life is not easy in the outlands of Bozeman, Montana, but it does not mean that this rancher is not up to the challenge.
Obstacles include territorial and legal disputes, small-time thieving, and a bitter rivalry with neighbors. Right from the first scene, Dutton's composure becomes apparent, as he calmly shoots a seriously injured horse. What really gets Dutton down is the strained relationships with his family members.
