Cole Hauser Talks About His "Yellowstone" Fame and the Show's Success
As "Yellowstone" gains popularity, one of the breakout stars of the show is Cole Hauser. Despite having acted for over three decades and taking on major roles in movies like "Dazed and Confused" and "Pitch Black," it's his portrayal of the tough ranch hand and enforcer Rip Wheeler that has made him a household name.
In a recent interview with Esquire, Hauser expressed his appreciation for the enthusiastic response that "Yellowstone" fans have for the show and his character. He loves the fact that people care so much and finds it to be quite special.
Hauser also admitted that he was initially worried about losing viewers between Season 4 and Season 5 of the series, but was pleasantly surprised to see that the audience has only grown stronger.
Cole Hauser loves the fans' reaction to the series
Despite its shift in focus from the Dutton ranch to politics after John Dutton (Kevin Costner) became the governor of Montana, "Yellowstone" has remained a successful series with strong ratings. Actor Cole Hauser, who plays Rip Wheeler, is thrilled with the fans' continued love for the characters.
Hauser's experience with "Yellowstone" has extended beyond the screen. He has launched his own brand of coffee, which he attributes to the show's popularity. "It's an honor," he shares with Esquire.
Although Season 5, Part 2 of "Yellowstone" has faced delays, Hauser remains optimistic about the show's future. He is content to sip his coffee and wait for the show's return, where Rip will undoubtedly play a crucial role in the series' conclusion.
