Brandon Sklenar is an actor who currently stars in the Yellowstone spin-off, 1923. Previously, he had guest roles in Truth Be Told, New Girl, Westworld and The Offer. He also starred in films like Mapplethorpe, Vice, Midway and The Big Ugly.

While speaking with Man About Town about his role in 1923, he said, "Spencer taught me a lot and continues to. I think having not experienced war myself, the small glimpse into how I would react to it surprised me. You might react with humour or whatever your coping mechanism is. It’s a constant learning process. I’ve never enjoyed playing a character or working on a project as much as this, so it’s truly a blessing that I’m associated with 1923. I’m excited to continue that journey."
