“Yellowstone” actress Jen Landon, who plays Teeter on the show, says “Yellowstone” has helped prepare her for her role on “FBI: Most Wanted.”
Jen Landon Carries Skills from ‘Yellowstone’ With Her
“Couldn’t be more excited to be joining @fbimostwantedcbs,” Landon posted to Instagram Friday. “Not only do I get to work with the rad @julianmcmahonofficial, I also get to bring some of the horse world from @yellowstone with me.”
On “FBI: Most Wanted,” Landon nabbed a recurring role as Sarah Allen, Tali’s (Yaya Gosselin) riding instructor.
Landon grew up in Brentwood, California and attended college at New York University. So the world of livestock and rodeos was new to her.
She told Decider that Sheridan first put her in touch with “his horse guy” in Los Angeles. Then, when she was on the “Yellowstone” set, she worked with one of the show’s wranglers. She got Landon comfortable riding a horse.
“I was on a real roping horse!” Landon said. “It was a quick learning curve, but the days that I learned the most oddly were the days that you’re on set and they yell, ‘Action,’ and you just have to go and there’s no thinking about it anymore. You’re like, ‘I need to keep this job,’ and so you just go.”
What About Teeter?
Landon has won three consecutive Daytime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series for her role on the soap opera “As the World Turns.” Before she secured the role of Teeter on “Yellowstone,” she had appeared in a plethora of different soaps. They include “The Young and the Restless,” “Days of Our Lives” and “Chicago Med.”
Besides “Yellowstone,” she recently appeared on TNT’s “Animal Kingdom” as Amy.
Meanwhile, Cinema Blend is asking the question on every “Yellowstone” fan’s mind: What about Teeter?
Not to worry. There is some potential for Landon’s “FBI: Most Wanted” character to develop into a love interest for Special Agent Jess LaCroix. But for right now, it seems her character will feature in fewer episodes than the series protagonists. So she’s not necessarily leaving “Yellowstone.”
In fact, Season 4 filming of “Yellowstone” has already wrapped, meaning there’s plenty of time for Landon to appear on both shows.
All told, Landon’s new role should offer up an interesting contrast to Teeter, who is a bit of a peculiar character and not one likely to be duplicated elsewhere.
