The iconic Sam Elliott is one of the last true originals left standing in a film industry overrun with young, interchangeable, anonymous would-be leading men. His career has been long and diverse, although most people probably think of him in a cowboy hat or perhaps a military uniform when they think of what they’ve seen him in. He’s always projected a ruggedness and gravitas embodied by his weathered features, old school mustache and amazing rumble of a voice. Yet you’ve never seen him quite as he is in The Hero, the new indie drama written and directed by Brett Haley (I’ll See You in My Dreams).
