The actor who played a backwoods rapist in "Deliverance" -- famous for his "purdy mouth" line -- may have finally found his true hillbilly love ... right here in Hollywood.

TMZ has learned Herbert "Cowboy" Coward -- who now stars on the TV show, "Hillbilly Blood" -- is going on a blind date with Mema -- the matriarch of Reelz Channel's "Hollywood Hillbillies."

Celebrity manager David Weintraub says he ran into "Cowboy" -- who's still working at age 90 -- last week and offered to set him up with 70-year-old Mema. He says "Cowboy" readily accepted.

Weintraub tells TMZ ... Mema's family fully supports the idea of a redneck romance ... and they've arranged the first date for next month.

We can already hear the banjos.

"Redneck" used interchangeably with "hillbilly" is a racist slur. Using that term is no different from calling a J E U a "h*y*m*i*e*" or "y*i*d" or a h o m o s e x u a l a "pole puller" or "f l a m e r." Please remove this article ,TMZ, and refrain from ever using these derogatory terms again. Just because you own TMZ Harvey, doesn't mean tolerance takes a vacation!
