3. Cole Hauser was stunned by Finn’s transformation between seasons.
When Finn returned to the set for season 5, Cole Hauser was shocked by how much Finn had grown up. “Yeah, he went from, like, a little pudgy kid to all of the sudden lean and tall, and I think he’s 6-foot-1,” Cole told Entertainment Tonight. “He came in this year and he looked at me and he’s like, ‘You ain’t gonna f**k with me this year, Cole.’” In a May 2022 Instagram post, Finn wrote, “When you say, ‘hi, nice to see you!’ to the film crew and they don’t know who you are!”
4. Finn’s character will have a love interest in season 5.
After a tough childhood, things are finally looking up for Carter. Orli Gottesman has joined the cast of Yellowstone as Halie, Carter’s love interest. “In season 5, Halie becomes that person who gives Carter the chance to come out of his shell and to teach him not only about himself, but he finds himself always wanting Halie to be around. Halie comes along and now there is someone who can fit that mold and be there for him,” according to EW.

Before his breakout role in Yellowstone, Finn starred alongside Angelina Jolie in the 2021 action film Those Who Wish Me Dead. That’s how Finn first met Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan. Taylor wrote and directed the film. He later cast Finn as Carter in the Paramount Network show.
