Jamie Dutton is one of the most divisive characters on Yellowstone and now Wes Bentley is predicting his fate…and it’s not working out well.
At a latest panel at the Screen Actors Guild, Wes Bentley offered his take on his Yellowstone the fate of the character, said Wes Bentley, “I don’t think he’s playing a game here. He wants to see something back for his son. I think he’s seen himself [dead] from before the start of the season. He is already aware of what is happening to him. He knows what’s coming and he’s trying to get what he can out of it by making some moves and taking opportunities.” With that, Wes Bentley also pointed out that Taylor Sheridan reportedly already knows how Yellowstone will end up saying, “He’s told me he knows how he’s going to end it… It was a while ago. I’m sure he didn’t know how we were going to get there, but he knows how.”
Wes Bentley also offered a minor analysis of Jamie. “Is he just keeping power or is he actually trying to do something with the land?…I think Jamie has valid questions about a lot of things, and that’s what’s complicated about him. He has a good argument. He doesn’t necessarily do it the right way or I guess people hate ways, but that’s his way and that’s who he is.”
There has also been a strong Yellowstone fan reaction, with Wes Bentley pointing out, “I’m getting therapy [from fans], which is strange. They want to talk to me about all his problems and what’s wrong with him. Or they yell at me across the room how much they hate me. But they smile, so I feel safe. No one has followed me anywhere yet.”
Yellowstone has been a consistent hit for Paramount, with massive ratings for season five premiere and a highly hyped midseason finale that left a lot of questions unanswered. Yellowstone returns to finish the season this summer.
