    Ok, we all know that it's John Wayne. But, let's hear some others. Me, I like Dean Martin. But why not have both? Rio Bravo anyone?

    Clint, especially as he's aged.

    I would have to agree on the Clint Eastwood choice. I actually was very hooked on early Clint - "High Plains Drifter", "For a Few Dollars More" and I agree he does age well in those jeans:))

    All time: Clint Eastwood - hands down. One time: Val Kilmer as Doc Holliday in Tombstone - "I'm your huckleberry"

    I have to think in terms of authenticity. So in that vein consider, Ben Johnson, Slim Pickens, Roger Farnsworth, and Joel McCrey.

    Ben Johnson is my pick, but if you're talking about real rodeo cowboys who played cowboys off and on in the movies, Gary Cooper and Walter Brennan also need to be on the list somewhere!

    It has to be John Wayne he is an american icon. I do agree that Clint is next in line ans that Ben Johnson is the best rodeo cowboy it is my understanding that he was a real rodeo cowboy.

    Here is my top five: 1. John Wayne, 2. Clint Eastwood, 3. Yul Brynner, 4. Robert Duvall, 5. Kevin Costner. Number 4 and 5 for "Open Range".

    I'd have to say my all time favorite screen cowboy was Roy Rogers and still is. I've started collecting his movies and t.v. episodes and so far there's not a bad one in the bunch. They don't make role models like that anymore.

    Hi all. Now iv read all the comments from other members up to now and I most agree most are very good picks but I must add one more to the list and my pick is Randoff Scott. If anyone is wondering who that is just check out some of his many movies. Thanks all!

    Well John Wayne is obvious, but I really have to agree with Clint. I also like some of the others like Robert Duval and Kevin Costner and I enjoyed several other movies with actors I can't name. I ain't to good on recalling names.

    Roy Rogers gets my vote. His priorities were God, Family and country. That is the correct order.

    First, I have to agree with John Wayne being the greatest. Robert Duvall was PERFECTLY casted as Gus in Lonesome Dove and is plays a great cowboy. Clint Eastwood is a natural. Sam Elliot is one of my personal favorites. It may have to do with the fact that I'm named after one of his characters, but he is a natural!

    My number 1 would have to be The Duke (The Angel and the Badman, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, Red River & The Searchers). I also love Gary Cooper (The Plainsman, Along Came Jones, The Westerner), Jimmy Stewart (Broken Arrow, Winchester 73) and Steve McQueen (Junior Bonner). Loved Randolph Scott, as well, though his films were all too often B movies and Alan Ladd as Shane was superb. On TV I loved James Drury as The Virginian, who was a rodeo cowboy before becoming an actor. Though she didn't play a cowboy, I must mention Jane Alexander as Calamity Jane--simply brilliant!

    I am agreeing with everyone though i am partial to Clint Eastwood, i would like to add one more that being Keifer Sutherland for his roles in Young Guns 1 and 2 and the Cowboy Way, and the fact that he won a buckle for team roping.

    I agree with all the above posts. It is hard to find a bad western. another guy that has not been mentioned is Tom Selleck. i hate him for being so purty but he plays a pretty good cowboy. He did some Sackett movies with Sam Elliott that were pretty good way before he was Quigley.

    I never would have thought about that. He does seem comfortable in the cowboy role and does very well. I didn't know he was a roper.
