When asked whether the return of actor Josh Lucas as a younger version of his character could potentially signal the end of the road for his older version, he responded: "I don't want to die… just too much to do. In terms of this story, I don't know where that's gonna go… I haven't really thought about it."

"Everybody dies, but it's how you live," he joked before adding that he has no idea how or when Yellowstone will wrap things up as showrunner Taylor Sheridan has not divulged with him his plans for the future beyond season five.

He said: "I don't [know how Yellowstone will end] because I think probably, in some way, we're making it up even if we say we know. if we say we know it, is that really what it means? I think what comes on the page will be the thing that I look at."
