Sam Elliot

Mr. Fu must comment on Sam ElliotMETAPHOR had a mini review of Ghostrider with a comment on the Sam Elliot part:

Sam Elliot gets on a horse and then his head catches fire and the horse catches fire and “Ghost Riders in the Sky” plays on the soundtrack. That’s the Western-movie equivalent of a Mob movie where DeNiro whacks Sinatra in the graveyard where Edward G. Robinson is buried.

Mr. Fu will see any movie in which Sam Elliot has a part, at least once.  But perhaps only once.  Ghostrider could be edited and cut out everything but the Sam Elliot parts, you would not miss much.  Sam Elliot has such presence on screen, he has become, for Mr. Fu at least, an actor in the magnitude and style of John Wayne.

He also reminds Mr. Fu of another actor, with whom he has co-starred, Tom Selleck.  Frankly Sam Elliot or Tom Selleck beat Chuck Norris in coolness any day.  If Fred Thompson really wants to win the White House, he could put Tom Selleck down as VP and Sam Elliot as Secretary of Defense.  He would get 95% of the popular vote.
