Big Sky - Ted Levine Joins Cast + Kyle Schmid To Recur

Ted Levine (On Becoming A God In Central Florida, The Alienist) has joined the cast of David E. Kelley’s hit freshman ABC drama series Big Sky as a new series regular. Additionally, Kyle Schmid has been tapped for a recurring role. Both will make their debut on the show later this season.

Levine will play Horst Kleinsasser. Horst has run the ranch empire for decades with a petty ruthlessness, buying up failing ranches, making deals, expanding his grip on the small, rural Lochsa County. He’s set up his children to compete and screw each other over. This once-powerful man has suffered a stroke and can only whisper, and knows he has to pass the ranch throne on to one of his children.

Schmid will portray John Wayne Kleinsasser. Second-born and angry. The sort of guy who drives a Ford King Ranch with an NRA decal. He clings to the old ways of the ranch with a ferocity and forcefulness. John Wayne has used his father’s illness to grab the reins of the ranch and steer it away from his brother Blake, the eldest son who turned his back on the family years ago.
