Cole Hauser in ‘The Last Champion’

The Yellowstone actor stars as the former multi-state champion wrestler, John Wright. In the movie, his character makes it all the way to the Olympics, however, a scandal costs him the gold medal. Fast forward twenty years later, Wright returns back to his hometown to try to save his mother’s house from foreclosure after her death. However, the former wrestling star is met with an unfriendly welcome due to his past.

Deciding to stick with what he knows best, Hauser’s character returns to the wrestling mat to help train young high school wrestlers in the sport. This is where he meets Michael Miller (Sean Scully). Miller comes from a troubled family yet shows the potential to to be a phenomenal wrestler. “Can John become the leader, the team, and Michael needs, or will he lose himself to the dark demons of his past?”

Other stars that are featured in the film include Hallie Todd from Lizzie McGuire, Randall Batinkoff, who played the agent in X-Men: First Class, and Peter Onorati, who plays This is Us‘ Stanley Pearson. Annika Marks from The Fosters and Bob McCracken on Sons of Anarchy are also in the movie.
