  • He was a very talented actor.

    He played many roles in the movies and on TV. But he will always be remembered in most hearts as Sheriff Roscoe Coltrane. In the show he started out as a somewhat honest lawman who had lost his pension, which made him greedy and dishonest. He then changed and went into a more bumbling sheriff role. He had his famous speed trap and a dog named Flash. He also had a giggling laugh. He even though he wanted to arrest the Dukes for everything from stealing illegal gambling equipment to Boss Hogg’s watch didn't want anything bad to happen to them. He showed this very well in the episode 'Ghost of General Lee' in which he cries when they supposedly drowned. He could also play different roles such as a bad guy who look exactly like him. He even directed and wrote episodes he was great. I love it I love it.
