When (and if) Yellowstone starts production to finish the main plot with Kevin Costner’s John Dutton, it seems as though things will be a little tight. Costner is now involved in a legal battle regarding his obligations to the series, which has reached the courts. There have been tumultuous times on the Yellowstone set before, but those issues were caused by the animal kingdom.
During the second season of Taylor Sheridan’s popular series, an unruly bull got out of hand and smashed a camera during the iconic Cowboy Poker scene. For the game, a card table was put up in the midst of a corral, with a black bull galloping about as the actors played their hands. When the bull became more rambunctious, the cast moved out of the path, but the camera stayed still.
“That bull broke a camera during the cowboy poker game and they turned [the footage] into an ad for the show,” Luke Grimes (Kayce Dutton) told The New York Post, with a laugh. “They’re no joke, man.”
Even Harrison Ford, who is eighty years old and appears in the Yellowstone spin-off 1923, is reckless when it comes to dealing with the animals on the show. When ordered to slow down, his horseback riding pace increased instead.
