Yellowstone TV Star Cole Hauser Spotted at Arkansas Restaurant
Imagine you're eating at an Arkansas restaurant and you look over to another table and there's actor Cole Hauser aka Rip Wheeler from the popular television show 'Yellowstone."
Before you pick your jaw up off the floor you're probably thinking "I must be dreaming" This might happen in Hollywood but not in Arkansas. Well, it did, on Wednesday, May 31, Cole was spotted eating at the shabby and chic upscale restaurant Theo's in Fayetteville.
Apparently, from a report with 5News Hauser was in town during the week to attend a 2023 Walmart shareholder's meeting. The University of Arkansas baseball team is hosting the NCAA Regional baseball tournament this weekend and there's a good possibility they could be playing the TCU Horned Frogs on Saturday. Hauser's son Ryland has enrolled to go to TCU in the fall. The former football player has been enrolled as a student, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and the youngest son of Hauser looks just like his dad without the beard.
The crew at Theo's was excited to have him visit the restaurant they even posted a photo on their Facebook page with a caption that read, Theo's is Rip approved! Thank you so much for coming in."
Cole's character Rip in Yellowstone is the guy who takes care of a problem for the Dutton family and takes care of it his way.
Yellowstone fans can't wait to see what happens with Rip in season 5 the final season of the highly acclaimed TV series from Taylor Sheridan. However, with a continuing dispute between Sheridan and Kevin Costner, there might not be a season finale if the logistics don't get worked out according to an article in Esquire.
It would be a shame if Yellowstone fans didn't get closure on a show that dominated the TV ratings this past season with 11.5 million viewers. Sunday Night Football on NBC was the only thing to beat the Paramount Network show, barely.
You can now get caught up on all episodes streaming on Peacock.
