Samuel Pack "Sam" Elliott (born August 9, 1944) is an American actor. He's something of a living legend and is instantly recognisable due to his incredibly Badass Moustache, deep baritone and Western drawl. He frequently plays cowboys, ranchers and other Southern types. Basically the go-to guy for Cool Old Guy, Badass Grandpa and Badass Baritone. You don't get much manlier than Sam Elliott.Oh—and though Robert Mitchum did it first, Elliot's is the voice you think of when you remember the "Beef...it's what's for dinner" commercials.
