Returning to the stage for the first time in two decades, Justified star and six-time Emmy nominee Timothy Olyphant will headline the Atlantic Theater Company’s world premiere of Oscar nominee Kenneth Lonergan’s Hold On To Me Darling. Performances are set to begin February 24, with opening night April 3 at the Atlantic’s Chelsea mainstage, the Linda Gross Theater.
The Atlantic describes Hold On To Me this way: “On learning of his mother’s death, world famous country and Western star Strings McCrane (Olyphant) begins questioning the meaning of his life and what it all adds up to. Determined to abandon his celebrity and career, he moves back to his hometown in Tennessee. It doesn’t go well. This compelling new play from acclaimed playwright Kenneth Lonergan examines the costs of fame, fortune and narcissism in pursuit of the American Dream.”

Congrats to Timothy Olyphant on his Critics Choice Award for Best Guest Actor/Actress in a Comedy Series!

Deadwood, a superb HBO television series about The Wild West that starred Ian McShane and Timothy Olyphant, is being made into a movie.
Deadwood, which ran for three seasons and 36 shows from 2004 to 2007, was nominated for 28 Emmys (winning eight) and earned a Golden Globe in its first two seasons for McShane.
HBO programming president Michael Lombardo told TVLine that he has personally given Milch the green light to resurrect the show as a film. “David has our commitment that we are going to do it,” said Lombardo. “He pitched what he thought generally the storyline would be — and knowing David, that could change. But it’s going to happen.”

Olyphant came back Tuesday in an episode amusingly titled “The Olyphant in the Room,” continuing to torment Dean while also striking up a romantic relationship with Claire Lacoste (Natalie Morales). In fact, Claire even brought Olyphant on the team’s stakeout. And Dean thought he might be their prime suspect:
It was a sort of surreal hilarity that wouldn’t have been out of place on It’s Garry Shandling’s Show. And Olyphant, with his well-perfected comic timing and willingness to send himself up to begin with, demonstrated that he’s truly undervalued in the comedy department.
