Rueben “Rooster” Cogburn (True Grit) Reuben “Rooster” Cogburn is the protagonist of Charles Portis’ 1968 novel, True Grit, made into an award winning movie by the same name in 1968 and a sequel in 1975, Rooster Cogburn, both starring John Wayne. The Coen brothers directed a remake in 2010, starring Jeff Bridges. Reuben is a Civil War veteran, a U. S. Marshall, a drunk, a loner, a has-been and – most of all – a big guy with a big heart that shines through in spite of his best efforts. It matters little what the plot is that drives the action; the important thing is that this is a man who lives by a code as old as humanity – doing the right thing.
