His name is all over so certainly the screenplay writer and creator gets a cameo on his own show. It is an excellent easter egg for the fans, especially the die-hard Taylor Sheridan and die-hard “Yellowstone” fans. Born in Texas, the first time Sheridan became more familiar with audiences was with “Veronica Mars” and later with “Sons of Anarchy”.
Sheridan has also had an appearance on “Walker Texas Ranger”. Acting is not actually Sheridan’s claim to fame, though. The writer/creator has come up with his own brand of Sheridanesque films and series.
Jake Ream – Jake
Taylor Sheridan has a habit of giving his characters their actors' given names. Jake Ream is no exception. It is little wonder why Jake in “Yellowstone” is such a hands-on trainer and excellent ranch hand. The actor, Jake Ream, worked as a horse trainer for 27 years at EE Ranches.
Writer and creator Taylor Sheridan met Ream after Ream sold him a horse and Ream, all the while having no idea to whom he had just sold it. The rest was history as Ream joined the cast as a ranch hand.
This character may have had only several cameo appearances, but he definitely leaves an impression, especially with his memorable t-shirt bearing the line, “your girlfriend keeps looking at me”. While modesty might be the last thing Travis is known for, he is a cowboy through and through.
The thing Travis likes best are horses, rodeos, and buying and selling horses. This Texan businessman also lends a hand to the Duttons by taking Jimmy under his wing, giving the young man an opportunity to tour with him in the west.
Before becoming Robert and Monica Long's grandfather he served in the military, touring in Vietnam. In the show he lives with his wife and is visited a lot by Kayce who is his grandson-in-law.
He's had a tragic life, with his grandson Robert dying in a cattle dispute, his granddaughter Monica getting injured while trying to break up a school fight, and his wife confined to a wheelchair. While he was absent for a lot of seasons two and three, he made a comeback in the fourth season.
