Meet the Iowa Native that Plays Jimmy Hurdstrom on ‘Yellowstone’
In its seasons, Yellowstone has quickly become cable television's biggest hit. It also has some of the most iconic characters on the small screen today.
Of course, the cast is led by the legendary Kevin Costner, who stars as John Dutton, Cole Hauser as Rip Wheeler, and Kelly Reilly as Beth Dutton. But, one of the quirkiest (and most beloved) characters hails from the great state of Iowa.
But which character is it?
The one and only, Jimmy Hurdstrom, played by Jefferson White.
Jefferson grew up in the eastern Iowa town of Mount Vernon, located in Linn County. He also attended Iowa State, graduating from the University in 2012. Since then, he's appeared in such television shows as Manhattan, How To Get Away With Murder, the 2019 reboot of the Twilight Zone, and of course, Yellowstone.
As any avid viewer of Yellowstone will know, Jefferson's portrayal of Jimmy Hurdstrom is one of the best performances on the show.
Before arriving at the Dutton Ranch, Jimmy was a bit of a troublemaker. However, as the series progressed he became a reliable (and at times hilarious) ranch hand.
