By all accounts, Timothy Olyphant ought to have a trophy case full of gold statuettes. His resume is stuffed with award magnets like DeadwoodDamages andThe Office. His acting is consistently acclaimed. And he’s extremely well-liked in the community. But for whatever reason, the self-effacing 44-year-old remains decidedly kudos-deprived. There’s a strong feeling that could change this year in the wake of his impressive work as laconic Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens in Justified’s pitch-perfect second season.

TVLINE | Season 2 presented us with a much more human, flawed Raylan. Did you discover anything new about the character that surprised you?
It’s hard for me to think of it in those terms, to be quite honest with you. I just do it. I don’t know if it’s a fault or not but I more or less really am just thinking about the stories. I invest a great deal of energy into the stories we’re trying to tell, or where the stories seem to want to go. I’m just guided by, “Oh my God, that would be entertaining. What a moment. What a scene. What an idea.” Everything else I just trust that we’re in the right world.

TVLINE | Your storyline with young Loretta McCready revealed a paternal side to Raylan. As far as child stars go, how was Kaitlyn Dever to work with?
She was fantastic. What an actress. [I was] so pleasantly surprised. She was just so good. She wasn’t just good in terms of being present and truthful and capable, but I was really able to throw curve balls at her, change stuff on the spot, and she wasn’t fazed by it. She wasn’t rehearsed. Sometimes I think with kids they’re working with an acting coach and they’ve got their line readings and they’re really pinned down and then when you go, “We’re going to move this line, take this out, switch this around,” they’re like, “Mom! What the f–k is this guy talking about?” [Laughs] She was just so right there. I can’t tell you how much I appreciated that. She was no different than anyone else on that set. Her parents must be pretty cool, because usually if the kid actor is a pain in the ass there’s a pain in the ass right behind them. We lucked out there because those things can be a disaster.

Published on 06/16/2011 Under DVD - Blu-ray I Am Number Four Interview

In ‘I Am Number 4′ Timothy Olyphant stars as Henri, a the Warrior/Guardian who’s job it is to protect and train John Smith (Alex Pettyfer), an alien from planet Lorien who was sent to Earth as a child alongside eight others to escape an invading race, the Mogadorians, which destroyed their home planet. ‘I Am Number 4? is released on DVD and Blu-ray from 20 June 2011 in the UK. Check out what Olyphant had to say about the film in a quick interview below.

How was the experience making the film?
Timothy Olyphant: There’s something just great about a set, especially this one where the director is so engaging, so enthusiastic and so in control of it all. Then we had this amazing cinematographer in Guillermo Navarro, just watching them at work was great. The movie looks amazing, it was really cool to see why it looked amazing. It’s quite a family with the crew DJ brings with him. Working with DJ was fantastic, I loved working with him. He’s just a class guy and a great director. He was really fun, our conversations from the jump were great. We were on the same page from day one.

How did you become a part of the film?
Timothy Olyphant: When I first read the script it seemed pretty fun. I read it, then within an hour or two I got on the phone to DJ, he asked me what I was thinking, first of all the fact that he asked was lovely, he asked what I had in mind. I started riffing my gut instinct with what I thought would be fun with the character, he seemed…or at least pretended to be enthused (laughs). I just enjoyed right off the bat our conversation, where we were trying to take it, take the role. When I first I read the script, within four or five hours I knew I’d do the movie.

What is your characters role in John’s life?
Timothy Olyphant: When we first meet Alex’s character John, he seems to be living a normal teenage life, but then he has these visions, before you know it he’s on the run. I’m in his life, I’m some sort of Guardian, there to basically try to help him survive, help him understand what these special abilities that he has are, allow him to eventually be able to live on his own.

As Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, Timothy Olyphant embodies a modern-day cowboy, right down to the Stetson. The trigger-happy lawman of the FX hit Justified is based on the protagonist from Elmore Leonard’s short story “Fire in the Hole,” but Olyphant has had a hand in Raylan’s development throughout the show’s second season. “I’m very involved in the show, in ways that I probably have no business being,” says the actor, who signed on as a producer after season one. “I enjoy it. Someone gave me a TV show, I figured I’d have as much fun as possible.” Vulture talked with Olyphant about what to expect from tonight’s finale, his guest stint onThe Office, and why Lakers fans need to stop whining.

It feels like this whole season has been building up to a legendary showdown. The episode title alone, “Bloody Harlan,” is a hint of what’s to come—
Somebody’s going to stub a toe.

Sure, that’s all.
Someone’s going to need a Band-Aid.

Got any highlights you want to share about the episode?
I’m not sure I do. My job description is not giving away endings, you know? What can I tell you? I’ve seen it, and there’s a lot of good stuff. We’re very proud of the season, and the finale has what the best episodes of the season have: some great writing, great storytelling, great performances. I’m not beating around the bush, I just don’t know how to talk about it without telling you things you don’t want to know.

Last season’s finale — with its epic shoot-out that found Raylan and Boyd on the same side — was a big one, so this week has a lot to live up to.
My way of thinking is, well, we did that, so let’s not do it again. Nobody wants that. Even though they think they do, they don’t. And at the same time, let’s just try to live out this story as dramatically and interestingly as possible. The characters this season were just so rich and so great, and the ones that don’t stick around will be missed.
