Actor Billy Bob Thornton will guest star in the much-awaited Yellowstone prequel series 1883. The actor will star alongside the previously announced cast including Sam Elliott, Tim McGraw Faith Hill, Isabel May, and LaMonica Garrett.

The series will follow the Dutton family who set out on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America. The series is a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land — Montana.

Thornton will play the role of Marshal Jim Courtright. Taylor Sheridan, who wrote the episodes of season 1, is directing the pilot.
