Choosing Harrison Ford’s most important accessory has been a challenge. In an interview with DifferentJanie Bryant, “1923”‘s costume designer, revealed that she tried on about 75 hats on the actor as he suited up to play Jacob Dutton, the great uncle of John Dutton III (Kevin Costner), in the 1920s -set “Yellowstone” prequel series.

“It’s all about his hat. We did a lot for him,” Bryant said. “All the different colors — trying different creases, different lips, different crown heights. It’s definitely a process.”

That process involved himself, Ford and the show’s creator, Taylor Sheridan, Bryant said.

“Taylor was also very specific about the type of hat she wanted,” she said. “There was a lot of collaboration with Taylor, with Harrison and myself to create what I call ‘Jacob.'”

Ford himself discussed the hat-making process in an interview with ET’s Cassie DiLaura, noting that Sheridan initially “didn’t like any” of the hat options and often said, “That one was too tall. Too tall. that one is big. That one is too small.”

Ford stars in the series with Helen Mirren, about whom he falls for ET.

“I find working with Helen very easy, simple and straightforward. There is no fuss about her. She is a practical person. She is a down-to-Earth person. She’s very smart, very astute and she knows her craft, ” he said. “Our scenes are nothing but a pleasure.”
