Default Sam Elliot

I was at the chiropractor the other day and a guy walks through the door. I had a "this guy looks familiar" moment and then he spoke to the receptionist... and I immediately felt like buying a Dodge truck to run out to get some Coors beer. Wasn't as tall as I would have expected but he seemed hunkered over a bit and probably why he ws seeing the chiro.

Is he a local or is he working here in PDX?

Either way, those voice over jobs he gets are probably the sweetest deal in showbiz by the amount of work you do for what you get paid.

The only thing more easily recognizable than Sam's mustache is his voice!

Sam still has connections around here. His mom is a retired teacher from the Reynolds School District. IIRC he lives seasonally and may be involved in one of those big new gated communities near Sunriver...I can never remember the name.

I laugh every time I think of his response to that kid in "We Were Soldiers" saying "Good Morning Sergeant Major!" every day.

He's got a ranch down in our area - just out of Brownsville. Folks around there say he's just an ordinary guy. When I have out-of-state family visiting I always drive them out by his spread and watch the ladies swoon.

One of these days I'm gonna invite him to come team penning with us.

According to IMDB, they are still married and apparently also have a ranch in Malibu, CA.
I enjoy his movies. He seems like a real guy in them, not an actor playing a real guy.

Sam Elliot is a stud. He's pretty much who I pictured in all the Louis L'amour westerns.

O and his mom was driving a brand new caddy.lol. Good to see he takes care of his mom with the money he's made. One of my favorite actors.

Has a place East of Harrsiburg at the base of the Coburg hills. The rumor mill suggests he is one nice guy. His voice should be in the Hollywood Hall of Fame.

Think he has/had a place by Lapine too. Was told by a cousin who was working in the Sentry market, that supposedly They were having a little get together there when Cruise was marrying Kidman, that Tom Selleck Sam Elliot and little Tommy Cruise strolled in and started filling up carts with beer for the shindig. Said both Selleck and Elliot seemed like nice guys.

Yep has a place on Gap road about 5 miles out of Harrisburg. I used to see him all the time. When I worked at the Chevron in Junction City I pumped his gas a lot. My uncle live about 5 miles past him on Gap going towards Brownsville.

I am pretty sure it's Brownsville of all places however if you are going to the same chiro, means you are going to one of the best to have a client like that.
And coming from a woman, he is still stinkin' hot.

I showed this thread to my wife last night and she went into a "Sam" craze. She then gave me a big passionate kiss to which I responded with, "that was meant for Sam wasn't it?" She said, "you aren't going to put that on I-Fish are you?" Why miss an opportunity.....

When he walked off to the appointment room at the Chiro, both women at the front desk we obviously weak at the knee's.

Hey, I envy the guy just from that. But back to one of my original points, his voice over gigs must be one of the best out there from an employment standpoint.

Very TRUE!! I"ve done some hunting on the backside of his property
(on private Rosboro land)..he does not allow guns or hunting of any kind on his land.When he first bought the ranch,he had it patrolled during deer season. I know lots of locals that have seen and talked to him and say he is just a regular guy.

I respect his rights to his land just the same as any other private land!
