Gil Birmingham plays Charlie Bass, the head of the witness protection program tasked with monitoring and guarding Toni Collette’s Laura, in Pieces of Her. Charlie is one of the show’s most notable supporting characters, and Birmingham brings his usual, magnetic screen presence to the Netflix series whenever he appears in it. However, Yellowstone fans might be a little distracted by Birmingham’s presence in Pieces of Her.
That’s because Birmingham also stars in Yellowstone as Chief Thomas Rainwater. Introduced in the pilot episode of the series, Rainwater is the chief of the Broken Rock Indian Reservation. Over the course of the show’s first four seasons, he repeatedly clashed with John Dutton (Kevin Costner). Rainwater’s desire to take control of the Yellowstone ranch has made him one of John’s greatest rivals on “Yellowstone,” though the two have also teamed up on certain occasions to combat mutual threats.
In addition to his work on “Yellowstone,” Birmingham has also appeared on a number of other high-profile TV shows, including “Under the Banner of Heaven,” “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” “House of Cards,” and “Siren” (via IMDb). He also had notable supporting roles in Hell or High Water and Wind River, both written by Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan.
