Taylor Sheridan’s upcoming Paramount+ drama Landman is rounding out its cast, and another A-list TV star just joined the pack. The Emmy-winning actor Jon Hamm will star opposite Billy Bob Thornton in this promising series, set in the world of oil rigs.

Landman is based on the hit podcast Boomtown and it will follow the lives of a group of people seeking fortune in the world of oil rigs. It will take us to the proverbial boomtowns of West Texas, and center on “wildcat billionaires fueling a boom so big, it’s reshaping our climate, our economy and our geopolitics.”

Hamm joins the show’s lead Billy Bob Thornton in the role of Monty Miller, described as a titan of the Texas oil industry who has a long personal and professional relationship with Thornton’s Tommy Norris.

The two acclaimed actors will be in pretty good company since the cast of this series also includes Demi Moore (Ghost), Ali Larter (Resident Evil franchise), Michelle Randolph (1923), Jacob Lofland (Maze Runner franchise), Kayla Wallace (When Calls the Heart), James Jordan (Yellowstone), and Mark Collie (Nashville).

Sheridan created Landman for Paramount+ alongside his fellow co-writer and executive producer Christian Wallace, and this series already kicked off production in and around Fort Worth, Texas.
