Which male actor is your favorite cowboy in movies or TV shows?
| If I had to guess about the general public, I would say there is a 50/50 split between John Wayne and Clint Eastwood as the most popular cowboy star. TCM says John Wayne is the All Time Great Cowboy actor. Are they right? I have my own favorites. Who are yours?|
There are many fine cowboy actors, some very popular. Audie Murphy was a box office sensation. Sam Elliott is much beloved, as is Tom Selleck. Other greats include Randolph Scott, Joel McCrae, Burt Lancaster, Steve McQueen, Yul Brynner, Robert Fuller, Ben Johnson, Clint Walker, Hugh O'Brien, Robert Ryan, Richard Widmark, and many more. Modern ones include Tommy Lee Jones, Thomas Haden-Church, and Kurt Russell.
So who would you say is your number one favorite cowboy favorite? If you have a close follow up, mention him in the notes.
