Ask any of my friends who really know me and they’ll tell you I like to watch TV. I find a lot of inspiration in good storytelling and, let’s be honest, physical inspiration for heroes. And though a lot of the actors aren’t cast in cowboy roles, I could easily see them with a cowboy hat and boots, a nicely worn set of Wranglers and sitting astride a horse as he rides the range. So I thought it would fun to share some actors I think would be good as cowboy heroes.
Because of photographers’ copyrights, I won’t be putting the pictures of the actors on here. But I’ll link their names to a picture so you can check them out and see if you agree. I’d also love to hear who you think would make a great casting for a cowboy hero. I’m always looking for inspiration to drive my creation of those sexy cowboy heroes in my books, and I’m sure our blog readers wouldn’t mind the visual treats as well. 🙂
Matt Barr from Valor and Sleepy Hollow
Sam Heughan from Outlander
Matt Lanter from Timeless
Noah Mills from The Brave (He’s actually the inspiration for the hero in the book I’m currently working on for Tule.)
Idris Elba from the Thor movies
Oscar Issac from the new Star Wars movies
Jensen Ackles from Supernatural
Juan Diego Botto from Good Behavior
Eric Dane from The Last Ship
Now it’s your turn. Tell us who you’d like to see play a hunky cowboy hero. Let’s see how many awesome choices we can come up with today.
