The actor best known for playing hard-headed bad-ass lawman Bullock in HBO’s much acclaimed historical Western drama Deadwood is back as… a bad-ass lawman. Type-casting anyone? Speaking of that, Tim is starring in a feature film out this Friday, February 25th called The Crazies, as… you guessed it, a bad-ass lawman. Unlike The Crazies, the new FX show actually looks good and I am glad to see Olyphant back on TV playing another man of righteous violence and intensity. This time around he plays a U.S. Marshal by the name of Raylan Givens, who has been assigned to the area where he grew up after he ruffles the feathers of the higher-ups. Check out the début episode of Justified on FX, March 16 at 10PM ET/PT.
