Anyone who's ever seen Deadwood has been itching to see actor Timothy Olyphant throw on some spurs and clean up a town again. As Sheriff Seth Bullock, Olyphant brought back images of classic Western characters who weren't afraid to saddle up and take on the bad guys. Unfortunately, he next took those skills to the big screen with Hitman. Ugh.
Butafter a great stint on FX's Damageshe's back to enforcing the law in the country, this time on FX's upcoming program Justified (formerly Lawman; thanks for the title change,Steven Seagal!). Olyphant, who I've admired since his role as a pill-dealing character in Go, stars as a modern-day Deputy Marshal who uses old-timey justice to police a town in Kansas. FX has released a new extended trailer for the program, and from the looks of it, I'm on board. What can I say, I'm a fan of people getting shot.
Justified debuts in March on FX.
