Samuel Pack "Sam" Elliott is an American actor. His rangy physique, thick horseshoe moustache, deep, resonant voice, and Western drawl lend to frequent casting as cowboys and ranchers like Virgil Earp in Tombstone. His other credits over the years have included playing Marvel Comics characters General Ross in Hulk (2003), and The Caretaker in Ghost Rider (2007).
- Elliott originally wanted to reprise his role as Generla Thaddeus Ross from Universal's Hulk in The Incredible Hulk. However, William Hurt ended up being cast a Ross in that movie and therefore in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
