1923 1×01 Reaction Post

So now that the premiere episode of 1923 has been out for a couple of days, I wanted to put up the reaction post. Have you been able to watch yet? What did you think of the latest series in the Yellowstone franchise? According to Deadline, the premiere set a record as Paramount Plus’s most watched US premiere ever, by quite a wide margin!

We only got one scene with Tim in this one, but it was a great introduction to his character, Bob Strafford. (And let’s face it, having that one scene be opposite Harrison Ford was a major bonus!) This particular interaction between Bob and Ford’s Jacob Dutton definitely got a chuckle out of me – loved it! And also, can we talk about that epic mustache?! Definitely suits him more now than the Burke-stache from years ago.

So what did you think? Let us know in the comments below! Screencaps are coming soon; Ara is on holiday and can’t do them at the moment, and hers are miles better than mine – definitely worth the wait! And be sure to check out the 1923: What to Expect video for more glimpses of Bob Strafford.

Expect spoilers for the episode – so if you haven’t seen the episode yet and don’t want to be spoiled, you should avoid reading the comments on this post until you’ve watched it.

Gallery Update: 1923 Premieres

Wow – this past weekend was full of all sorts of things! In addition to Saturday being Elisa DeKay’s birthday (and mine), Tim’s new show, 1923, had two premieres – one in Los Angeles on Friday and another in Las Vegas on Saturday! The star-studded cast appeared at both events, and we were treated to quite a few photos, as well as social media posts from the accounts for the show and the network (Paramount Plus).

I’ve uploaded the photos we’ve gotten so far to our gallery – check them out here (LA) and here (Vegas). These are just the pro photos; I’ll be adding social media photos, as well as any additional pro photos we can get, over the next few days, so keep checking back! (Photo credits will also be added soon.)

Tim in Yellowstone spinoff, 1923

Check it out! We finally have some more info about Tim’s character on the Yellowstone spin-off series, 1923.

According to Variety, Tim plays Bob Strafford, “a Montana rancher who’s anticipating an imminent wedding between his daughter and one of the Duttons.”

Tim told us that he’ll be in three episodes, and that he just wrapped filming in early November.

The series stars Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren and premieres on Paramount+ on December 18. You can check out the trailer here!

Wake – New Audiobook Featuring Tim

Tim is part of the cast for a new audiobook version of the graphic novel, Wake by Dr. Rebecca Hall, adapted for audio by Tyler English-Beckwith. The story follows Dr. Hall, a historian and granddaughter of slaves, as she digs deeper into the history of enslaved women and their powerful role in revolts.

In addition to Tim, the audiobook features a wonderful cast led by DeWanda Wise and Chanté Adams. (I don’t know the name of Tim’s character, but when I hear back from him, I’ll edit to add it.) You can find it on Audible!

Tim in “Oppenheimer”

For those who didn’t see this on Instagram, we got some great news from Tim – he’ll be appearing in Christopher Nolan’s highly-anticipated upcoming film, Oppenheimer!

He’ll be portraying Senator John Pastore, and it’s a very small role, but this is still a really big movie with a star-studded cast.

The film will follow the life of physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer, who was the director of the Los Alamos Laboratory during the Manhattan Project, and his role as “the father of the atomic bomb.” Cillian Murphy is starring as Oppenheimer, and the cast also includes Emily Blunt, Robert Downey Jr, Rami Malek, and Matt Damon. It’s set for a July 2023 release, so stay tuned…

8 Years of Team DeKay!

It’s true – today marks 8 years since Aragarna and I officially launched the Team DeKay website!

Back then, Tim didn’t have any active fan sites, so we were mainly looking to create a place where fellow fans could go to find out about his latest projects and get photos and videos. Ara already had a fan forum, and I had the Instagram account and a web hosting account. We decided to join forces and make a fan site…and we’re still going strong, 8 years later!

We’ve come a long way since then, and we obviously couldn’t have done it without all of you! I know some of you have been around since the very beginning, while others have just joined very recently. We appreciate all of you so very much and are looking forward to bringing you more fun stuff in the upcoming year and beyond!

Rest in Peace, Willie Garson

Just echoing what I said on Instagram…

Sometimes, there just aren’t enough words. Rest easy, WG. With your wit, brilliance, kindness, and generosity, you have touched the hearts of so many in this world, including countless folks who’ve never even had the pleasure of knowing you personally. Our thoughts are with Nathen and with Willie’s family, both close and extended. Be at peace, friend. Cancer sucks.
