After sifting through 75 different variations, she, Harrison, and series creator Taylor Sheridan finally agreed on Jacobs’ light brown cowboy hat.

The hat that Harrison wears in the hit prequel series, is aptly named ‘The Jacob’.

‘Taylor is also very specific about what kind of hat he likes. There’s been a lot of collaboration with Taylor, with Harrison, and myself, to create what I call ‘Jacob,'” she concludes.

In a recent conversation with Deadline, Taylor detailed the amount of time it took him to capture Harrison for the prequel — marking the Star Wars alum’s first major TV role.

He said the Indiana Jones star flew down to Texas on his private jet to discuss the series that hasn’t even been written yet.

‘I said, we’ll do this together. [Harrison] Come on, can I read a script? I said, you can when it’s written, but it hasn’t been written yet and you have to commit to it now. I needed to know who I was writing for,’ Taylor recalls.

Taylor then explained why she chose her character before writing the show’s script.

“I was done wondering who I was writing for,” he says. ‘And I have to try to chase the person that comes to mind and I can’t catch that person because they’re doing some damn Netflix shows. I don’t do that anymore.’

Taylor later told Harrison he hadn’t signed up to play Jacob, which he would then offer to play the role to Hollywood veteran Chris Cooper.

After landing ‘two bottles of wine’, Taylor finally made Harrison agree to the role.

‘I got him on the plane as fast as I could, closed the deal and said, send me the next one. Then came Helen [Mirren], and the like. Have a glass of wine,” he explained.
