‘Yellowstone’ Star Forrie J. Smith Shows Off His ‘Old School’ New Cow

by Joe Rutland

“Yellowstone” actor Forrie J. Smith decided to share with the world on Monday how he is keeping up with the times these days.

Smith, who plays ranch hand Lloyd Pierce on the Paramount Network drama, took to Instagram with his new friend.

You have to get up pretty early in order to get anything past Smith. He doesn’t just play a cowboy on “Yellowstone” but he follows that lifestyle in his off-camera time, too.

Truly, Smith is a tried-and-true real cowboy of the American West. It means a lot for him to be a part of the hit series.

In an interview with TVFanatic, he broke down how much the show’s reflection of his own life means to him.

“I give Taylor a big kiss on the cheek for bringing our culture to the forefront and making a great show out of it,” Smith started off in speaking of showrunner Taylor Sheridan.

“It means a lot to me, but it’s kind of too late…,” the “Yellowstone” star said. “They’ve already got the water table sucked down. They’ve already subdivided a lot of good grazing land. But [‘Yellowstone’] is telling our story. And I’m glad to see that getting out.”

We’re sure Outsiders who love the life of a cowboy enjoy seeing it on their TV in a hit series. “Yellowstone” will return once again this fall, tracking events around the Dutton Ranch. Look for Lloyd out there, too.

‘Yellowstone’ Fans Debate About Jamie Dutton’s Possible Betrayal

Goodness, “Yellowstone” fans are some of the most loyal out there.

But they are definitely wondering if Jamie Dutton would have betrayed the family if he had stayed as a ranch hand.

Wes Bentley plays Jamie Dutton. Fans, though, are still wondering about him. Jamie Dutton ran for political office even as his father John, played by Kevin Costner, asked him not to do so.

Jamie also has shared many of the family secrets and plans with a journalist. “Yellowstone” fans are left to wonder if he’s even responsible for the Season Three finale attacks against the Duttons.

One “Yellowstone” fan started off the conversation in a Reddit thread.

“When we were shown Jamie in the bunkhouse and with the cowboys, he seemed pretty content, if not happy,” the fan wrote. “When he was unloading hay with Jimmy, he seemed to enjoy the conversation with Jimmy and Cowboy, and his reaction towards the cop who came to tell Jimmy about his grandpa was that of a lawyer-friend, not just a company lawyer. And he seemed to enjoy playing dizzy bats that night.”

But this same fan suggests if he stayed at the Dutton ranch as a worker, then he might still be there.
