Are you a fan of the FX series Justified? I am….or maybe I just enjoy watching Timothy Olyphant for an hour every week! Whatever the reason, I was excited to hear that Justified is reportedly being renewed for a third season!
The FX hit stars Timothy Olyphant as handsome US Marshal Raylan Givens, and is currently airing its second season.
Reports claim that FX is pleased with the Justified’s performance, and may finalize a renewal deal with Sony Pictures TV. The second season of the show has attracted an average of 4 million weekly viewers, an improvement on the show’s first season.
What does Olyphant like about his character, Raylan? He tells Fresh Air: “The thing that’s very attractive about the character is the moral code of it all…I always go back to that scene in the first episode, where Raylan told a guy that you don’t walk into someone’s house unless you’re invited — and at the same time, he gave somebody 24 hours to get out of town or he’d kill him. That to me says everything you’d need to know about the guy.”
Olyphant has also starred in the HBO series Deadwood as Western sheriff Seth Bullock. His film credits include Gone in 60 Seconds, Go, The Broken Hearts Club and A Life Less Ordinary.
Justified airs on Wednesdays at 10pm on FX.
