Western : Who is your favorite non-Western genre actor that starred in a Western?

Who is your favorite non-Western genre actor that starred in a Western?

That is to say, an actor that typically doesn't star in Westerns OR doesn't look like they walked right out of the Wild West.

Clint Eastwood, John Wayne, Lee Van Cleef, Lee Marvin, Anson Mount, Sam Elliot, etc are all out.

Someone like, say, Jonah Hill or Richard Armitage or Rebecca Ferguson typically do not come to mind when one thinks "Western". They are examples of the type of actor I have in mind.

O'Brien was also in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance; how many westerns must an actor appear in before they can be considered a "genre" actor?
