As we prepare to head into the return of the ABC series Big Sky some casting announcements have just been made.
Horst has run the ranch empire for decades with a petty ruthlessness, buying up failing ranches, making deals, expanding his grip on the small, rural Lochsa County. He’s set up his children to compete and screw each other over. This once-powerful man has suffered a stroke and can only whisper, and knows he has to pass the ranch throne on to one of his children.
A ruthless father who has made his children grow up screwing each other over? What’s a great show without some good old-fashioned family drama right?
Second-born and angry. The sort of guy who drives a Ford King Ranch with an NRA decal. He clings to the old ways of the ranch with a ferocity and forcefulness. John Wayne has used his father’s illness to grab the reins of the ranch and steer it away from his brother Blake, the eldest son who turned his back on the family years ago.
“Second-born and angry. The sort of guy who drives a Ford King Ranch with an NRA decal.” Geez! We don’t know about you all but John sounds like he’s going to be a huge asshole and he is bound to bring some major drama into Big Sky. Personally, I’m a fan of Kyle Schmid and he’s not bad to look at, so I’m pretty excited about this casting. I mean, I guess it sorta makes up for them killing off my man-crush forever Ryan Phillippe in the Big Sky “Pilot” (YUP, STILL bitter over here).
