Justified: Timothy Olyphant on Elmore Leonard and the golden age of TV
As marshal Raylan Givens - self-satisfied, unreliable, and cool in a cowboy hat - he’s the undisputed star of Justified. So when will this show get the awards it deserves?
FAVORITE CHARACTER MEME Boyd Crowder
To recover from SXSW, I spent yesterday on my couch catching up on this season of Justified. I sometimes wonder if my unexplainable crush on Boyd Crowder will ever end…
It hasn’t yet!
I’d say the most disappointing thing about Justified is that they have these promising characters and actors in Erica (Rachel) and Jacob (Tim) and we still don’t get to see much of them. We have to wait for the last season for that to improve?
I totally teared up as Boyd was saying goodbye to Ava through the police car window. Walton Goggins and Joelle Carter are such amazing actors.
And Gutterson took Colt’s sunglasses.
It was something that they came up with, and we left in. I was unsure about it, but if they’ve got a passion for it, let’s do it. Those sunglasses were something that Colt always wore outside. We needed him not to wear them in the church, because we needed to see his eyes in the final scene, but they were kind of identified with him. It’s something that both these veterans would understand and that goes back to WWII and long before that, which is the taking of a souvenir, a memento. — Graham Yost
