I drew these guys while on the couch watching TV.  The guy with the Yarmulke was out of my head and the bald guy was from a 1 second glance of a guy on commercial.  It might have been that guy from America's Top Model.

Here's a caricature or actor Ian McShane from HBO's Deadwood.  It's not very exaggerated, I just started practicing after reading Tom Richmond's Tutorials  on his blog.  It's a great blog and is a great tutorial.
Here's a few more studies I did, more playing around with different styles more than trying to capture a likeness.

Old West Guy

I did this sketch in my sketchbook last month and have been wanting to expand on it...

So I did.  I referenced some pictures from the film 3:10 To Yuma (the recent version) for the gun and clothing. I read in an interview with artist Ben Balistreri on the Character Design Blog 
how he finds visual research so important so as not to fall back on cliches or what we think things may be like.  I also find it inspires more ideas to come up.
