Way out there in Sacramento was born this fella… fella I wanna tell ya about. Fella by the name of Sam Elliott. Now sometimes there’s a man, sometimes, there’s a man. Aw. I lost my train of thought here. But… aw, hell. I’ve done introduced him enough. Nobody, but nobody plays a cowhand like Sam Elliott. With that gravelly voice, and often with a huge and impressive moustache, there’s no other actor who so perfectly embodies the spirit of the wild west rancher. Which isn’t to say Elliott doesn’t have range – far from it! He just knows what he’s good at. Elliott’s filmography includes such titles as Road House, Tombstone, Hulk, Thank You For Smoking, Up In The Air…and, of course, The Big Lebowski. He turns 67 today.
