Yellowstone 1923 actor reacts to Indiana Jones comparison

With Harrison Ford now a part of the Yellowstone cast, it was inevitable that one of his adventurous co-stars would be compared to Indiana Jones.

The Yellowstone cast got even bigger with the arrival of the prequel to Yellowstone, 1923. The new TV series gives one of the world’s best Westerns a whole different array of characters related to the Duttons to fall in and out of love with.

Set around a century back in the Yellowstone timeline, the new series puts the 1923 cast up against problems unique to their era as creator Taylor Sheridan continues to spin his generation-spanning yarn.

One of the big additions to the cast is Harrison Ford as Jacob Dutton – patriarch of the Dutton ranch – and the famous actor’s involvement put one of his co-star’s on a crash course with comparison.

Brandon Sklenar stars in the series as Jacob’s nephew Spencer Dutton, who we meet as an adventurer tracking big game in Africa in the wake of witnessing the First World War.

Sklenar has seen Spencer compared to Ford’s iconic titular hero of the Indiana Jones movies on multiple occasions and told Above the Line he can see where the link comes from.

He said: “You know, he’s got the browns. He wears the browns, and he’s got the boots. I don’t like snakes, and neither did he. You know, because of the adventure aspect to it that we had in those first few episodes, especially, I kind of knew that comparison would be inevitable.”
