Yellowstone's Gil Birmingham Would Love To See Meryl Streep Make An Appearance On The Show

"Yellowstone" is one of the biggest hits on TV right now, and with Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren on their way for the upcoming spin-off "1923," the sky would appear to be the limit for casting big stars from the world of movies in the universe of "Yellowstone." So who else would members of the show's cast like to see turn up in future seasons of the show?

Gil Birmingham, who plays Chief Thomas Rainwater on "Yellowstone," was asked that question during a recent interview. And his answer should come as no shock to anybody who's paid attention to screen acting over the last several decades: Meryl Streep. Streep hasn't done too much TV over the course of her career, and she'd be a big get for "Yellowstone," but with Ford set to make his major series debut in "1923" it's not really an impossible prospect that she would turn up in a future season of "Yellowstone."

Birmingham's co-star Kelsey Asbille is pulling for Harrison Ford

The question of who the cast would most like to see on "Yellowstone" was asked during an interview in Variety with the cast of the show. Gil Birmingham's reasoning in choosing Meryl Streep as the answer doesn't really need any additional explanation, but in the actor's own words, "[Meryl Streep would] be good in anything she played," which accurately conveys the consensus opinion on Streep's acting ability.

Birmingham's co-star Kelsey Asbille had an answer of her own when asked who she'd most like to see turn up on "Yellowstone." "Honestly, can we pluck Harrison Ford from '1923?'" said Asbille, who recommended that they just say he's a distant family relation, referring to Ford's role as Prohibition-era Dutton patriarch Jacob Dutton on the upcoming "Yellowstone" prequel series.  

And for Wes Bentley? He said that he'd like to see Lady Gaga turn up on the show. Whether that's more or less likely than Meryl Streep turning up on "Yellowstone" is a matter of speculation. In real life, though, "Yellowstone" Season 5 is set to premiere on the Paramount Network on November 13, 2022. In the meantime, you can always catch up on previous seasons of "Yellowstone" before the new season premieres.
