    Well, I'm not a huge Wayne fan or anything; but John Wayne, I believe it goes without saying, is the definitive cowboy actor.

    At least he got those damn gremlins off his spread...

    UNDISPUTED CHAMPION: Clint Eastwood.
    Not only did he contribute so much to so many excellent Westerns as the "man with no name", he also brought us a modern day "cowboy" in the form of Dirty Harry... AND to top it all off, directed the greatest Western film ever made: Unforgiven (1992)

    The Other Ten: [alphabetical order]
    - Gary Cooper
    - Gene Hackman
    - Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal... they're cowboys! The BEST cowboys!
    - John Wayne
    - Lee Van Cleef
    - Paul Newman and Robert Redford (perfect duo for Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969))
    - Glenn Ford
    - Tommy Lee Jones

    They were still cowboys though. While a cowboy is traditionally a herder of cattle, he can also be a herder of animals (ergo sheep) while on horseback (which they both did). And Heath Ledger's character DID herd cattle latter in his life, and Jack Twist did rodeo stunts. Plus, ya know... the hats! Them cowboys, my friend. Clint Eastwood herded pigs in Unforgiven (1992). And not even on horseback. Does he not "count" either?
