Sam Elliott Hilariously Tells Tim McGraw “I Didn’t Learn A F*cking Thing From You” After They Finished Filming 1883

Tim Mcgraw Sam Elliott 1883

Sam Elliott and Tim McGraw became buddies on the set of the Yellowstone prequel, 1883.

Of course, Sam is an Oscar-winning actor, known for his roles in movies like The Big Lebowski, Road House, A Star Is Born, Tombstone, and many, many more.

And Tim has a pretty solid acting resume himself, his greatest role of course being in Four Christmases (don’t argue with me).

So, while the opportunity to work alongside his wife was pretty cool, learning to perfect his craft from one of the best in the business was a dream come true.

After they wrapped filming, Tim approached Sam to tell him just how special it was working with him over the course of the show:

“One particular day I told Sam, ‘thanks for doing this and being a part of this and I just want to let you know, I’ve learned so much from watching you.'”

Now, the polite thing to say would’ve been, ‘thanks, me too.” But Sam wasn’t gonna miss an opportunity for a joke:

“And he just looked at me and said… ‘Oh yeah, I didn’t learn a fuckin’ thing from you.”


What a ball buster. Obviously, Sam has an incredible amount of respect and admiration for Tim McGraw, and after working together on 1883, they’re good buddies, but Sam couldn’t pass up the opportunity to roast Tim with a lob pass like that one.

Gotta love Sam Elliott.

We know that Paramount+ has ordered more episode of 1883 but it’s unclear if that means a full second season or just a few more episodes. They just announced plans for a follow up Yellowstone prequel titled 1932, that will presumably join the timeline when James and Margaret’s kids (with or without Elsa) are grown with their own kids.

“The show will follow a new generation of Duttons during the time of Western expansion, Prohibition and the Great Depression.”

So even though Elsa Dutton has died, the Dutton story is just getting started.
