‘Yellowstone’ Star Cole Hauser Says ‘Good Morning’ With Stunning New Pic

by Thad Mitchell

Actor Cole Hauser is among the many “Yellowstone” cast members taking full advantage of some well-earned time off.

Filming for the upcoming brand new season of the Paramount Network’s hit show wrapped up earlier this year. With their show on hiatus, it’s rest and relaxation time for “Yellowstone” actors and crew members. Several of the show’s cast have used social media in order to engage the show’s robust and growing fan base. Hauser, Kelly Reilly (Beth Dutton), Brecken Merrill (Tate Dutton) and Ryan Bingham (Walker) are among the actors using this strategy. They often share photos and stories from their latest adventures on social media. Other times they just pop in to say hi and express their appreciation for the tremendous support.

Hauser, who plays Rip Wheeler on “Yellowstone,” took to Instagram on Thursday to say “Good Morning” and share an awesome sunrise pic.

“Good morning from the Eastside us,” he said in the post’s caption space. He added an earth emoji to the end of his caption.

Hauser didn’t reveal his location in the social media post but he appears to be near the ocean, perhaps on a beach somewhere. Extremely popular on social media, his Instagram post got thousands upon thousands of views in under an hour of going live.

Yellowstone Fans Hope For More Rip In New Season

Some “Yellowstone” fans took the opportunity to tell Hauser they are looking forward to Rip’s return to the Yellowstone Ranch. Others said they appreciate him taking the time to share a gorgeous sunrise photo with his fans. Others chimed in to simply return a “good morning” to the Rip Wheeler actor.

Hauser plays the Dutton family enforcer to near perfection with the right amount of toughness and attitude. We even got to see a softer side of Rip during the third season of “Yellowstone.” Taken in by John Dutton as a youngster, Rip’s storyline is among the show’s most interesting.

Fiercely loyal to the Dutton family and the Yellowstone Ranch, Rip is a more than capable cowboy and ranch hand. It is his willingness and capability to do the family’s dirty work that makes him one of the show’s top characters. Time and time again, we have seen there are no lengths Rip won’t go to in order to protect his adoptive family.

It will be interesting to see what the future hold for Rip during the fourth season. “Yellowstone” fans certainly hope his agenda includes busting some heads.
