Veteran actor, Sam Elliott will join the Justified cast for Season Six. Elliott is best known for his many cowboy roles on television. Most notably Louis L’Amour’s The Sacketts movies. He also appeared alongside Patrick Swayze in “Roadhouse”.
Elliott is still going strong at age 70. He is married to Katherine Ross of “The Graduate” fame.
Elliot will join the cast as Markham, a famous Kentucky gangster. Markham returns from laying low with cash from his legal marijuana business. He has romantic inclinations towards Mary Steenburgen’s character, Katherine.
I have to wonder at bringing in even more characters at this point. The playing field is too crowded already for my taste. In my opinion, the last season should get back to what this show is supposed to be about, Kentucky U.S. Deputy Marshal, Raylan Givens.

Givens should be the star of his swan song. So let us hope they keep the bit players to a minimum. At least I am a fan of Sam Elliott’s, so it will be interesting to see him play a bad guy.
What do you think of the new cast additions. Let us know in the comments.
