It is heavily implied in the movie that the personality Sheriff Cooley (played by Daniel von Bargen) is in fact, the Devil. When our heroes satisfy Tommy Johnson, a guitarist who offered his soul at the crossroads, he explains the adversary as “a white man with north eyes and also a large hollow voice, and he likes come travel roughly with a average old hound.”

He is in fact, relenten the Sheriff himself. North eyes, since of his sunglasses. Large hollow voice, due to the fact that of his microphone. And the typical old hound is the bloodhound at his side.Not to cite the truth that nearly every shot the Sheriff is in, there is a fire or fire-like coloring somewhere in the frame.

You are watching: O brother where art thou sheriff

Towards the end of the movie as soon as the trio are challenged by him, they concern his engine by informing him it’s against the law. Come which that responds, “The law? The legislation is a person institution.”
