Jerome Flynn has been cast in “1923,” Paramount+’s upcoming “Yellowstone” prequel series from Taylor Sheridan.
“1923” will introduce a new generation of the Dutton family and explore the early twentieth century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition and the Great Depression all plague the mountain west. The series, which is currently in production in Montana, will debut in December.
Flynn plays Banner Creighton, a hard-headed Scottish brogue and the leader of the local sheep men.
Flynn is best known for starring as Bronn in “Game of Thrones,” with other prominent credits including the British dramas “Ripper Street” and “Soldier Solider,” in which he played Bennet Drake and Paddy Garvey, respectively. He has also appeared in “Between the Line,” “Black Mirror” and “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.”
He joins previously announced cast members including Harrison Ford, Hellen Mirren, Brandon Sklenar, Darren Mann, Michelle Randolph, James Badge Dale, Marley Shelton, Brian Geraghty, Aminah Nieves and Julia Schlaepfer.
Along with Sheridan, executive producers include John Linson, Art Linson, David C. Glasser, Ron Burkle, David Hutkin, Bob Yari and Ben Richardson. The series is produced by MTV Entertainment Studios, 101 Studios and Bosque Ranch Productions.
