Robert Taylor plays Sheriff Walt Longmire with a dry wit and old-fashioned charm. As the series progresses, his portrayal becomes more complex, showing the rage the character experiences at odds with his inherent moral code. The actor's career in film and television, built on his degree from the Australian Academy of Performing Arts, spans over 20 years.

Katee Sackhoff plays Victoria Moretti, an urban cop seeking refuge in rural Absaroka County, Wyoming. Sackhoff brings a matter-of-fact sensuality to the role of the capable deputy. The actor is best known for her intense turn as Starbuck on "Battlestar Galactica," which garnered her the 2008 Saturn Award for Best Actress on Television.

Lou Diamond Phillips portrays Henry Standing Bear, Longmire's best friend and a local bar owner. Phillips plays the charming Henry as a fiercely staunch advocate for the Cheyenne, who often acts as Walt's conscience. With early standout performances in "La Bamba" and "Stand by Me," the award-winning actor has a solid reputation in film, television and theater. He has also earned respect as the National Spokesperson for Veterans of Foreign Wars and as host of "An Officer and a Movie" in which he interviews military specialists on their views of a featured film.
