The flowing ‘stache! The sonorous drawl! What’s not epic about Sam Elliott? If Morgan Freeman is the voice of God, Elliott is the voice of America (or maybe Amuhrca). Okay, so right now he’s the voice of Fleetwood Yak in Rock Dog, but he usually evokes sweeping Western vistas (in commercial voiceovers) or plays the kind of guy who inhabits them (usually on horseback, in movies like Tombstone). Tellingly, Elliott’s first film role was a bit part in the classic Western Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and while he doesn’t always play cowboys, those are the roles we love him for.
