Sam Elliott is an actor who is identified with doing a lot of cowboy roles for one reasons. He has the rugged look, as well as feel, of a real true to life cowboy in actuality. Elliott was born in California, but he grew up in Oregon, and the influence of the cowboy may have been embedded within him from hisM youth. He did decide that he wanted to be an actor from the age of 9, but was met with opposition by his father, who didn't think that this was a good career choice for this son.

However, Elliott did adapt an attitude, and that attitude was to prove to his father what he could do as an actor. However, the pair could never resolve their differences, and Sam lost his father when he was 18. This is something that gave him all the more motivation to become a successful actor.
 
Sam Elliott decided to leave Oregon and he moved to California. He was able to get himself a credited role, which was his very first, in the classic Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid in 1969. The role in this film was nothing at all prominent for Sam Elliott, and it was titled “Card Player Number 2,” because he didn't even get to utter one word. However, one good thing did emerge from this part, Elliott would meet his future wife, who was the leading lady in the film and her name was Katharine Ross. Nonetheless, that meeting was very brief, and it would be another ten years before he would even see her again. They both would act together in a movie called The Legacy. They married a few years after the making of this movie and have been together ever since.

Early in his career Elliott took on a lot of roles for television. He also learned to be a very versatile actor by taking on a lot of supporting roles in a wide range of various films. A lot of these roles did help to mold Sam Elliott into the wonderful actor that he would become. This is because he liked the challenges that roles did offer him and he rose to the challenge every time. Some of the well known films that Elliott did have roles in include Lifeguard, Mask, Buffalo Girls, Road House, and Tombstone. These are just a few of the many movies he did act in professionally. 
 
The reason he was cast into a lot of roles in cowboy films was because of his natural looks and voice. He had a rugged physique about him and a thick handlebar mustache. He also had a Western kind of drawl and a deep voice that was very resonant and memorable. He was, and still is, the classic American cowboy actor.
 
Sam Elliott may be considered to be the very personification of the American cowboy actor. However, despite this fact, he is a very versatile actor who has played an array of different roles that make him an actor who does indeed love his craft with a true passion. He is currently filming a movie called Draft Day, which will be out in 2014, and he will be playing the role of Coach Moore.
