"I think anytime you can affect people in general, in a positive way, then you're a lucky individual."

Samuel Pack "Sam" Elliott (born August 9, 1944) is an American actor. He's something of a living legend and is instantly recognizable due to his incredibly Badass Moustache, bass-baritone voice 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.

Elliott has one son with his wife, Katherine Ross (Elaine in The Graduate), who he's been married to for 35 years.
