The rich, perfectly-aged and majestic look of Sam Elliot is enhanced by his bushy horseshoe mustache and deep Western drawl to give him the look of a classic American cowboy. As is such, the grizzled actor has landed several Western-type roles throughout his stellar career. Even though he had a minor role in “Marmaduke”, Elliot was perfect as “Chupadogra” an old English Mastiff who gives Marmaduke some sage words of advice. The elderly canine was feared by other around him as they thought he had contracted Rabies and devoured his owner.

A consumate character actor, Macy is best known for his magnificent performance in “Fargo”, the 1996 black comedy which landed him an Academy Award nomination.
The adorable and unassuming Lee Pace has had excellent showings in some earlier, low-key film projects.

Pace unfortunately bears the brunt of Marmaduke's misadventures and escapades, but ultimately has things work out quite well for him.

Wilson gets top billing and leads the star-studded "Marmaduke" movie cast.
