Harrison Ford Refused to Call Kevin Costner for Yellowstone Prequel After Showrunner Killed Series. 

The 80-year-old actor Harrison Ford has played many different parts over the years in series,  

like Star Wars and Indiana Jones as well as one-off films like The Age of Adaline, Air Force One, and others.  

It was unexpected that he played Jacob Dutton in 1923, but there is no denying that he was a superb fit for the role.

The Kevin Costner-starring Yellowstone is a precursor to the series.  

John Dutton of Costner is the great great grand uncle of Ford's Jacob Dutton. 

One would have assumed that the two performers would have exchanged notes given the characters' strong bond. 

Costner wasn't even contacted by Ford, though.

Harrison Ford admitted that he hadn't called Kevin Costner to discuss 1923 or Yellowstone in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
