Ramos to be inducted into Film Hall of Fame
When last we heard from Lawton actor from screens big and small Rudy Ramos he was readying for his role in an upcoming mini-series with Kevin Costner. Six months ago, he called it a big adventure and hoped it would turn into a prominent role.
Today, he's been filmed in four of the first seven episodes of "Yellowstone," and in May he'll return to the set in Utah and Montana for the final two episodes. He hasn't received scripts yet and isn't sure if he'll be part of the story line. But he said he has received notice that he will be inducted into the Oklahoma Film Hall of Fame in Guthrie in April.
In "Yellowstone," Costner plays the character of John Dutton, a man who controls the largest ranch in the United States. His foothold remains under constant attack by those it borders: land developers, an Indian reservation and America's first national park, according to a synopsis. The show premiers June 20 on the Paramount Network, which used to be Spike TV.
Ramos plays an older Indian man who lives on the reservation near Dutton's spread. He is the "wise man with a ton of integrity," he said, and they build a friendship.
"I think the series is going to be well-received," Ramos said. "I also feel the same way about my character. We shall see."
The show was developed through the cable arm of Paramount, which will allow for more modern viewing habits via television and online platforms. It's a sign of the times that the "big screen" found on the smaller screens is where you find top talent these days, Ramos said in a prior interview.
