Despite the disappointment of fans, Sally Struthers did not join the cast of ‘Yellowstone.’
Sally Struthers’ name shot up the Google search charts during last week’s two-hour Yellowstone Season 4 premiere, despite the fact that the All in the Family star had nothing to do with the show. Many viewers mistook Australian actress Jacki Weaver, who has been nominated for two Academy Awards, for Struthers. Weaver has joined Yellowstone as Market Equities CEO Caroline Warner, the new villain.
Struthers, 74, is best known for her role as Gloria Stivic on the 1970s sitcom All in the Family, in which she appeared in over 180 episodes. Gloria, her own spin-off, aired during the 1982-1983 television season. Her voice may be familiar to younger audiences from her work on Tiny Toon Adventures, TaleSpin, and The Wild Thornberrys. She most recently appeared in Gilmore Girls and the Netflix miniseries Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life as Babette Dell. I thought this was Sally Struthers.

Closer Weekly recently interviewed her about her career and work on All in the Family.
