- During this week's Yellowstone episode, fans were dying to know who was playing Teal Beck.
- Many people wondered if was '80s icon Anthony Michael Hall.
- Luckily, Paramount Network answered everyone's Q with an informative tweet.
There's a new set of brothers on Yellowstone ready to give John Dutton a run for his money. While Malcolm Beck (played by Neal McDonough) is clearly the more villainous of the two (so far, at least), most Yellowstone fans are actually interested in his brother and business partner, Teal. Following Wednesday's episode, everyone seemed to ask the same question: Does Anthony Michael Hall play Teal Beck in Yellowstone?
In short, no. Terry Serpico, the actor who actually plays Teal Beck on the show, bears a striking resemblance to him, though.
Although you may not recognize his name, Serpico has been in a number of popular TV dramas throughout the years. Some of his most notable works (beyond Yellowstone) include:
And now, get ready to see double: Anthony Michael Hall looks nearly identical to Serpico. You'll remember Hall as:
- Brian R. Johnson in The Breakfast Club
- Russell 'Rusty' Griswold in National Lampoon's Vacation
- Jim in Edward Scissorhands
Once Yellowstone viewers got a good look at Teal, it was only natural that some would confuse him with the fan-favorite '80s star. C'mon, the two actors are practically identical.

Can someone please explain to me how that one Teal Brother...IS NOT ANTHONY MICHAEL HALL????
In fact, this isn't the first time that people have made similar comparisons. Back in 2018, another Twitter user exclaimed that the two actors looked alike.
Very niche tweet: for some reason I thought Anthony Michael Hall was Terry Serpico. I thought Hall had bulked up and played a bunch of memorable heavies in MICHAEL CLAYTON and THE PURGE ELECTION YEAR. (Sorry Serpico.) pic.twitter.com/zVlviN2AG8— Gabe Dowrick (@GabeDowrick) September 25, 2018
So, that means Yellowstone fans aren't alone in this struggle. And now that we've answered this top Q, get ready to see Terry Serpico on your screen a lot more during Yellowstone season 2. And possibly next season, according to Neal McDonough.
