“I Respect Kevin Enormously… But…”: Harrison Ford Only Agreed to Yellowstone Prequel ‘1923’ as He “Didn’t Want to Dirty up the Road” With Kevin Costner!

Harrison Ford is a legendary actor known for his diverse roles in major franchises like Star Wars and Indiana Jones. Surprisingly, he made an unexpected appearance in the series 1923, where he portrayed the character Jacob Dutton flawlessly.

1923 serves as a prequel to the popular 2018 series Yellowstone, which revolves around the Dutton family led by John Dutton, played by Kevin Costner. Despite their familial connection within the show, Ford and Costner did not communicate about their respective roles in the series.

In an interview, Ford disclosed that he intentionally wanted to develop his own ideas for the project alongside the show's co-creator, Taylor Sheridan.

He felt there was no need to reach out to Costner for input or guidance regarding 1923 or Yellowstone. Ford expressed this sentiment, saying (H/T Good Housekeeping):

Furthermore, Ford shared his thoughts on Costner, emphasizing that although their approach may seem distant, they hold nothing but respect for each other. As professionals, they prefer to focus on their individual paths. Ford concluded by expressing his admiration for Costner while asserting that he is "on his own journey" in the industry.

Meanwhile, fans of Yellowstone were left surprised when the series came to an abrupt end after its fifth season.

The Daily Mail reported that escalating tensions between Costner and Taylor Sheridan, the co-creator of the show, led to its conclusion. Creative clashes and an inability to find common ground were cited as the reasons behind their strained working relationship. According to the outlet:

It's important to note that Costner also served as an executive producer for the show. Regardless of how things unfolded, he remains grateful for the opportunity Yellowstone provided him.

In conclusion, Harrison Ford's unexpected role in 1923 showcased his versatility as an actor. Despite being a relative in the show, Ford and Costner chose not to collaborate on their characters. Additionally, tensions between Costner and Sheridan eventually led to the premature conclusion of the beloved series Yellowstone. Despite this setback, Costner appreciates his experience and cherishes the time he spent working on the show.
