Interview: Timothy Olyphant Is A 'Justified' Presence

It's no wonder why   Timothy Olyphant   rules the screen as U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens: pardon my language, but he's a badass both on and off screen. The star of FX's   Justified   is one of my all-time favorite actors, both for his masterful performances and because he's just as watchable when he's not playing a part. You can imagine my excitement, then, when he sat down with me to talk about season two of one of the best shows on television. I had a hard time not fawning...or falling over laughing. Read More...

Clips - Justifed Season Two Premiere "The Moonshine War"

Are you excited that Timothy Olyphant's trigger happy US Marshall Raylan Givens is coming back to your TV screen tonight? You should be.  We've watched the first three episodes of Justified and not only do some people get shot, as you would expect, but the entire Justified character-space gets a fine tuning that can only be described as transcendent.  If I'm not mistaken, there seems to be a theme of 'redemption' threaded throughout the various character arcs this season, and the expertise that the Justified crew is displaying in communicating that theme is fantastic.  Watch for it. On a less sub-text driven level, Justified's second season brings back everything that phenomenally great about the first.  Let's hope Olyphant, Graham Yost, and the rest of the Justified gang  get some very, er, justified recognition next award season.  If you want a spoiler free psych-up for Justified's premiere, check out Jo Garfein's review here .  If you want a little sample of what is coming up on tonight's Justified season two premiere "The Moonshine War,"  you are in luck;  we have three clips below for your consideration - just enough to convince you that, thankfully, nothing has changed so you can feel safe tuning in to Justified on FX at 10PM EST tonight.

'Justified' Creator Graham Yost Talks Raylan, Boyd and Season 2 Feuds

At the end of my interview with 'Justified' executive producer Graham Yost, an unexpected thing happened. He brought up 'Psych.' Don't worry, the second season of 'Justified,' which arrives at 10PM ET Wednesday on FX, is not an homage to the USA show about a fake psychic. In its second season, 'Justified' is better than ever; it's still a rich and intoxicating blend of shaggy yet taut storytelling, sterling dialogue and terrific acting. The FX show remains deeply embedded in the world created by Elmore Leonard (who wrote the stories on which 'Justified' is based), and U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) is not heading to Santa Barbara to visit Shawn Spencer. But as Yost and I were wrapping up our chat, I said that I looked forward to watching 'Justified' because it's, well, fun. "That's the whole goal," Yost answered with a smile. Read More...
