Subscribe To Why Cole Hauser Agreed To Join Kevin Costner's Yellowstone Series Updates
Why did Cole Hauser agree to join Kevin Costner’s Yellowstone series? Hauser plays Rip Wheeler, the closest supporter of Costner’s John Dutton, on the drama. Hauser’s Rip is an integral part of the series, and his presence has only grown as Yellowstone has continued. You can now relive Rip’s best moments in Yellowstone Season 2 via an extra-filled three-disc DVD/Blu-ray set.
It is undoubtedly impossible for many Yellowstone fans to imagine anyone else in the role of Rip. Promoting the release of Yellowstone Season 2 on DVD/Blu-ray, Cole Hauser dished on the show’s popularity potential. I asked Hauser why he decided to join Yellowstone -- after pointing out Taylor Sheridan told Deadline it “took a little convincing” to get him on board. Here's what Hauser told me:
Thank goodness for all of this! On that last note, Rip’s complexity spans a tragic backstory and an intense present-day storyline. As you can see in Yellowstone Season 2's new home release, there is always a lot to unpack with Rip. Season 2 managed to unravel even more layers of the tough-as-nails cowboy. It will be interesting to see what the future holds!
As those who get Yellowstone Season 2 on DVD/Blu-ray can attest, Cole Hauser’s Rip had one heck of a second season. It came with some adversity. Albeit, his romance with Beth Dutton intensified to the point of “I love you” being said. He also got shot saving Beth and risked his life again to help rescue John Dutton’s grandson Tate in the Season 2 finale.
In the end, Rip finally got acknowledged by John as a member of the family. You can see that and other tender moments all over again in Yellowstone Season 2 on DVD/Blu-ray. You can also hear Cole Hauser’s co-star, Kelly Reilly (Beth), discuss her perspective on fans’ reactions to Yellowstone’s characters. As well as Kevin Costner’s thoughts on why Yellowstone has resonated so deeply with viewers.
The three-disc Yellowstone Season 2 DVD/Blu-ray set also includes all of the Behind the Story featurettes. They include in-depth interviews with the cast (including Cole Hauser) as they break down each episode’s significant developments. For instance, in one of them, Hauser provides insight into what Rip’s plan was after that Season 2 shake-up.
The Yellowstone Season 2 set will let fans fully immerse themselves into the edgy world of the modern Western. Fans will hopefully have a long time to continue watching the adventures of Rip and others unfold on Yellowstone!
Relive Rip’s greatest moments with the Yellowstone Season 2 DVD/Blu-ray three-disc set, which is now available. A premiere date for Yellowstone Season 3 has not gotten set yet by Paramount Network. While waiting for the Western’s return, you can check out this fall’s premieres.
