Sam Elliott Says Power of the Dog Is a “Piece of S–t” Western

Though Elliott himself has only played a cowboy, he explained that he’s familiar with the ranching lifestyle after working on the Paramount+ series in Texas. “I was hanging out with families—not men—but families,” the Sacramento-native said. “Big, long, extended, multiple-generation families that made their living and their lives were all about being cowboys. And boy, when I f–king saw that I thought, ‘What the f–k? Where are we in this world today?'”

Maron acknowledged Elliott’s disappointment, but added, “I don’t know that that’s the biggest issue at hand.” 

“It’s not the biggest issue, but for me, it was the only issue,” Elliott insisted. “I mean, Cumberbatch never got out of his f–king chaps. He had two pairs of chaps, a woolly pair and a leather pair. And every f–king time he would walk in from somewhere—he never was on a horse, maybe once—he’d walk into the f–king house, storm up the f–king stairs, go lay in his bed in his chaps and play his banjo. It’s like, what the f–k?”
