A meme making the rounds on social media pokes a little fun at a popular Yellowstone character.

The meme makes fun of the similar appearances of actors Forrie J. Smith and Sam Elliott. Here at Outsider, we are huge fans of both Smith and Elliott and a number of shows they’re in. The meme is sure to draw a laugh from fans of the iconic actors.

The image showcases a couple of Yellowstone characters. A young Tate Dutton asks his mother “can we get a Sam Elliott?” His mother, Monica Dutton, replies that they already “have a Sam Elliott at home. The next image below in the meme is that of Smith with the caption “Sam Elliott at home.”

On Yellowstone, Smith plays elder cowboy Lloyd to perfection. Despite his advanced age, Lloyd can more than hold his own and is the right-hand man of Ranch foreman Rip Wheeler.

The signature of both veteran actors is their near-solid white and ultra-thick mustaches. The facial hair for both is such a trademark look that even the most devoted fans wouldn’t recognize them without it.

Yellowstone Fans Find Humor in Meme

The meme generally drew laughter on Reddit with some fans even saying they would like to see Sam Elliott on Yellowstone. Sam Elliott on Yellowstone — wouldn’t that be a dream come true?

Because of his rough and rugged appearance that includes his signature mustache, Elliott regularly landed cowboy roles over the course of his legendary career. He would likely feel right at home among the cowboys that take care of Yellowstone Ranch. The seasoned actor has a plethora of accolades, including a nomination for an Academy Award for his performance in “A Star is Born.”

Many Yellowstone fans are wondering what is in store for Lloyd in the upcoming new season. Season three saw him accept an invitation from Rip to be his best man when he marries Beth Dutton. Lloyd could also be involved in an interesting love triangle in season four. The third season finale saw him snag “buckle bunny” Laramie, only to see her wind up in bed with ranch hand Walker. Could Lloyd be out for revenge on Walker for stealing his girl?

With a new season now firmly in sight, Yellowstone fans know the wait will be worth it.
