“Justified,” the FX drama about a 21st century U.S. Marshal who carries himself like a 19th century gunfighter, will be ready to slap leather again when its second season debuts on Wednesday, February 9 at 10 p.m.

Per the FX press release, in season two, after wiping out a local Kentucky crime syndicate in season one, Raylan “must now face off against the criminal organizations who are moving to fill the void, and he finds himself entangled once again with the mercurial Boyd Crowder.”

Interesting that it winds up on Wednesdays. Tuesday at 10 is the night where FX tends to put its better-known dramas, and newbies are often consigned to Wednesdays if there’s another show airing in the same period. (Because of their content, all FX series air after 10, which means the network can’t pair two dramas on the same night.) The new boxing drama “Lights Out,” which debuts Jan. 11, already has Tuesday sewn up for the first few months of the year, and I guess FX decided A)that “Justified” was successful enough in its first year to do just fine on Wednesdays, and B)that the idea of putting the lesser-known show on the lesser-known night didn’t work out too well for “Terriers” this fall.

Ausiello answered some questions from the fans about the TV shows and he talked about Timothy’s character in The Office:

Question: Many fans of The Office are concerned that Pam dated Timothy Olyphant’s character post-Roy and pre-Jim. Is this the case? Is Jim just finding out about it now? —Matt
Yes to all of the above! According to executive producer Paul Lieberstein, Pam dated Olyphant while Jim was with Karen. “Everyone in the office makes a big deal of it, and we get into Jim’s jealousy a little bit,” he says. “It bothers him a little.”


The Office returns for a new season on September 23 on NBC.


Timothy is in the list of GLAMUOR.COM’s 50 Sexiest Men of 2010! He’s the No. 29.

Though he’s best-known to fans of “The Office” as ineffectual human resources rep Toby Flenderson, Paul Lieberstein’s more important job is as the executive producer responsible for the series’ creative direction and day-to-day operations. This year, Lieberstein and “Office” developer Greg Daniels will be responsible for handling the show’s biggest challenge: writing out Steve Carell, and choosing someone to fill Michael Scott’s chair.

Lieberstein talked at NBC’s press tour party about how it will work story-wise, whether he’d prefer an internal or external successor and who the internal candidates are. We also looked back on this past season and looked ahead to some other upcoming storylines, including a guest arc for Timothy Olyphant from “Justified.” Various mild season seven spoilers coming up after the jump…

That seems like the only nice ending Michael could get. But since we’re not going to get into that for a while, what are some of the stories from this year you can tell me about?
In our premiere, we deal with nepotism. Michael hires his nephew. He’s not the most conscientious worker. We deal with the office dynamic about that. Timothy Olyphant’s going to come, and he’s going to play this salesman who is just kind of a threat to Dunder-Mifflin. He’s fantastic. He ends up beating out Michael, Dwight and Jim together, and selling at higher prices. So they do a little bit of a sting: they set up a fake company to try to figure out how he sells so well. Michael is going to come in with a cold sore one day, and he’s going to learn that that’s a form of herpes, and he’s going to feel that he has to contact every woman he’s ever been with and let them know that he has herpes.

According to The Ausiello Files, DirecTV has rescued FX’s drama Damages from cancellation. Two more seasons will air on DirecTV’s The 101 Network beginning in 2011.

A deal was recently reached between DirecTV and Sony Pictures Television. As a result, DirecTV acquires the rights to Damages from FX and will air two additional seasons beginning in 2011. Each season will consist of 10 episodes and will be shown exclusively on DirecTV’s The 101 Network.

The legal drama stars Glenn Close and Rose Byrne. Justified’s Timothy Olyphant guested during the second season as Wes Krulik, a man Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) meets in grief counseling. The two begin a relationship, although Wes has ulterior motives for striking up a romance with Ellen. Olyphant, and his Wes Krulik character, returned for the FX season finale.

What do you think? Will Timothy Olyphant’s character return?

  • latimes.com: We did notice that FX’s new drama, “Justified” was completely overlooked and that’s a shame. It’s well-written and Timothy Olyphant is phenomenal in the lead role. Walton Goggins ruled in his guest role. We know the dramatic field is crowded, but we would have made a little room for them.


Director Breck Eisner succeeded in making a great little horror film with this past spring’s George A. Romero reimagining of The Crazies, which comes to DVD and Blu-ray on Tuesday, June 29th. Next up for Eisner is a remake of John Carpenter’s seminal action classic Escape from New York, a project that seems to be in quite capable hands. One of the key elements in making a new version of this 1981 film work is casting the perfect Snake Plissken, which was played to perfection the first time around by living icon and Hollywood legend Kurt Russell. We caught up with Eisner earlier in the day, and he stated that Timothy Olyphant is one of the very few people in the running who could play Snake. Especially as far as the performance being a collaborative effort between the actor and the director. Which Breck thinks is the key to making a truly great Escape from New York for a new generation. He also told us why he decided to remake the film, and what we can expect from it and a possible The Crazies sequel.

Have you sampled a bit of Justified yet? The drama, based on Elmore Leonard’s novels, follows a US Marshal, Raylan Givens, who is sent home to Kentucky after an unfortunate incident where he happens to shoot a criminal. As the first season continues to gather pace, we gave cowboy-hat-wearing Timothy Olyphant a ring to chat about the show and his role as Raylan.

What attracted you to the role in Justified?
“Why did I want the role? It paid nicely! No, I love Elmore Leonard’s work and when it’s done well it’s just my favourite. And I’ve been such a fan of his. I was just kind of hoping that it would be all those things you hope out of an Elmore Leonard piece, and it was.”

Elmore said you were perfect for the role. How was that for you?
“It was so nice. He’s been really quite generous with his compliments. That means a great deal. He’s been really very available and very generous in terms of allowing us to use stuff from his other Raylan novels. I know he’s writing another Raylan Givens story – he was so sort of taken by the series that he’s writing for the character again, which I’m assuming, God willing, we’ll be able to use. It’s been great.”

Why do you think Justified has been such a critical success?
“I think it’s really well done. Elmore’s books have been really successful so I assume that the show does well for the same reason that his books do so well. I think they’re very subtle in how smart they are and they’re so terrifically entertaining. The characters are so wonderfully drawn and at times they make you laugh. You’ve got comedy and there’s drama and it’s rather simple. It’s mostly characters that are really driving the stories. The performances on the show are fantastic, the writing’s fantastic – all the ingredients for something special.”
