Garrett Hedlund Joins Cast of ‘Bass Reeves’ Paramount+ Series


Garrett Hedlund (Mudbound, Triple Frontier) is the latest to join the cast of Taylor Sheridan’s upcoming Paramount+ series, Bass Reeves. As first reported by Variety, Hedlund will portray Garrett Montgomery, a “so-called posse man of the era who Bass hires for his riding know-how and expertise of the area,” in a recurring guest role.

Starring David Oyelowo, this limited series will bring to life the legendary lawman of the wild west, Bass Reeves. Known as the greatest frontier hero in American history, and also believed to be the inspiration for The Lone Ranger, Reeves worked in the post-Reconstruction era as a federal peace officer in the Indian Territory, capturing over 3,000 of the most dangerous criminals without ever being wounded.

The series will also star Lauren E. Banks, Demi Singleton, Forrest Goodluck, and Barry Pepper, as well as Dennis Quaid and Grantham Coleman in recurring roles. Yellowstone‘s Cole Hauser has also teased an appearance in the show.

Bass Reeves is set to continue to expand Sheridan’s growing Yellowstone universe, which currently includes 1883, 1923, and its flagship series, along with the upcoming 6666.

While Paramount has yet to reveal an official first look at the series, which is currently filming in Texas, Hedlund teased a look at his character recently on Instagram.

This marks Hedlund’s second collaboration on Sheridan’s growing Paramount+ slate, with the first being his role as ex-bull rider Mitch Keller in the Sylvester Stallone-led Tulsa King. Hedlund’s other upcoming projects include The Marsh King’s Daughter, Desperation Road, and The Tutor, the latter of which will hit theaters on March 24.
