They don’t come any tougher than Rip Wheeler. Even his name suggests something dangerous – something not to be trifled with. Branding small-time thieves is nothing for Wheeler.
Mr. Wheeler may come across as possessing true grit, but ironically, the man has a soft side, and you see it come out when Beth Dutton is around. We dare say he has suffered much heartbreak with his romantic interest but deep down he is the only one in her heart, as stony as it may be.
Do not mess around with this woman. No one else in Bozeman would. Those who do often come off as second-best. From the pilot episode, we learn that Beth can quickly and accurately size people up and is not afraid to speak her mind. She is also fiercely loyal to her family and employer.
Though the others take to ranch life, we soon realize Beth stays as far away as possible, especially from horses. The reasons are only revealed much later, allowing us to see that Beth has experienced a lot of loss and pain.
Kelly Reilly – Beth Dutton
Born Jessica Kelly Siobhán Reilly in the United Kingdom, Kelly Reilly has started to make a name for herself in Hollywood. She has now made the line-ups for some major productions including “Flight” and “Bastille Day”. When it comes to series, this is Reilly’s true forte as she has been cast in “True Detective”, “Britannia”, and “Above Suspicion”.
In 2012, the British actress married the Texas-based financier, Kyle Baugher. Thanks to their marriage, we have seen Reilly getting much screen time in the USA.
Cole Hauser – Rip Wheeler
This actor has been around for quite some time in Hollywood so you will probably recognize the name. However, when Hauser plays Wheeler, you won’t because he is so good at portraying the hardened cowboy.
One of the first films the actor made an important appearance in is the teen movie “Dazed and Confused”. Later, he went on to star in “Good Will Hunting”, “Pitch Black”, and more recently “Olympus Has Fallen”. His career in TV has not yet taken off, but with his dazzling performance in “Yellowstone”, we’re bound to see him make the line-ups again.
We are not sure who is wearing the pants in the marriage, but we have an idea that it may be Monica. Sometimes, it is Mrs. Dutton’s savvy to forgo the pants that give her the upper hand when it comes to negotiating with Mr. Dutton. At least, Mr. Kayce Dutton is so incredibly in love with her that he will do just about anything.
That is a bit of the problem because Monica’s selfishness often hurts the Dutton family. True, she has reasons not to be loyal to the Duttons, but even her loyalty to Kayce wavers.
