‘Yellowstone’ TV: Jefferson White Reveals Why John Dutton is ‘Not a Hero’

by Quentin Blount

Yellowstone actor Jefferson White recently revealed why John Dutton, the character played by Kevin Costner, is not a hero in the show.

In a recent episode of Welcome to the Yellowstone, White makes his final attempt at recapping an episode in five minutes.

An actor and producer, Jefferson White is best known for playing the character Jimmy Hurdstram in the hit show Yellowstone. He also has had roles in The Twilight Zone (2019) and Manhattan (2014).

Jimmy Hurdstram is one of the main characters on Yellowstone. He’s a professional thief who becomes a ranch hand at Yellowstone Ranch. His grandfather, Dirk Hurdstram, asked John Dutton to take Jimmy on as a favor.

White talks about episode nine of season one of Yellowstone, “The Unraveling: Pt 2,” in Paramount Network’s latest video. In it, he ends where he began, calling Costner’s John Dutton the episode MVP.

“John Dutton is an incredibly complicated character,” White says in the video. “I think by the end of the season you start to understand that he’s not just a hero, but he’s very much an anti-hero. He’s very much a complicated man. He’s done some terrible things to try to protect his family. And he’s hurt his own family in a lot of ways by trying to protect them.”

White goes on to call John Dutton the show’s greatest character. “John Dutton… Kevin Coster…. the G.O.A.T,” he exclaims.

Meanwhile, you can watch the entire episode and more on Paramount Network’s YouTube page.

John Dutton is ‘Always Three Steps Ahead’ in New Yellowstone Clip

Paramount Network released a new clip from Yellowstone on social media on Friday. The video serves as a reminder to fans that despite what happened at the end of season three, no one should count out John Dutton.

“John Dutton is always three steps ahead, and we’re not complaining,” the studio tweeted on Thursday.

Also in the video, Dutton has a chat with Governor Lynelle Perry (Wendy Moniz), who has stayed over at his place many times. However, she often butts heads with his daughter, Beth (Kelly Reilly). For Beth, no one can or should ever replace her mother Evelyn (Gretchen Mol).

“How is it that you’re always three steps ahead of everybody everywhere you go?” Perry asks Dutton.

“It’s just a lot of sittin’ and thinkin,'” he answers.

As of right now, it’s a question mark as to what will happen to John Dutton following the end of the show’s third season. There’s a chance he is stranded, hurt badly by the side of the roadway, and essentially left for dead after a drive-by shooting. However, should Dutton make a comeback, it wouldn’t be the first time he has overcame poor odds.
