Timothy Olyphant Online

EST 2010 | your ultimate source for all things Timothy Olyphant

After competing for Trojans in late ’80s, has gone on to very successful acting career.

Former USC swimmer (1987-90) Timothy Olyphant, who has carved out a high-profile acting career since graduation, appeared at the 2011 Emmy Awards Sunday night, nominated for Best Actor for his role in the FX drama “Justified.”

Olyphant, who did not win Sunday night though others on his show did, graduated from USC with a degree in fine arts in 1990. As a junior, he was USC’s third-fastest in the 200y back and was 14th in the event at the Pac-10 Championships. As a sophomore, he was 11th in the 200y IM at Pac-10s.

He swam for legendary Trojan coach Peter Daland. Current USC head coach Dave Salo was an assistant while Olyphant was swimming at Troy.



The 15th Annual Hollywood Film Festival and Hollywood Film Awards, presented by Starz Entertainment, have announced that “Rango” will receive this year’s Hollywood Animation Award at the festival’s gala ceremony on October 24, 2011, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

The announcement was made today by Carlos de Abreu, Founder and Executive Director of the Hollywood Film Festival. “It is a great pleasure to recognize “Rango” as the recipient of our animation award. This piece of cinematic treasure borders on surrealism and “Rango” will be a classic for generations to come.”
Past recipients of the Hollywood Animation Award include “Cars,” “Ratatouille,” “Toy Story 3,” “UP,” and “Wall-E.”




For a single series to receive multiple Emmy nominations for acting in one year is quite an achievement. It points to a show’s overall quality when the talent bench runs so deep — consider “Mad Men’s” continued presence in the acting categories and in the drama winner’s circle, or “Modern Family,” which has twice loaded up on acting nominations and was awarded the top comedy prize last year.

Now, flying slightly lower on the public’s radar, comes “Justified,” the FX crime series set in the poor, coal-mining towns of Kentucky and based on Elmore Leonard stories. Virtually ignored by Emmy voters last year (it did receive a nomination for main title theme music), its second season came on like gangbusters, earning four acting nods — going to four first-time nominees in Timothy Olyphant, Walton Goggins, Margo Martindale and Jeremy Davies. And while the series itself did not earn a nomination, for anyone who’s watched Olyphant as U.S. Deputy Marshal Raylan Givens face down the criminal elements in Harlan County, the multiple honors are no surprise. Except, perhaps, to the actors themselves.

“What am I going to wear to the Emmys? Something with a tie,” says Timothy Olyphant with a bone-dry chuckle. There’s much for Olyphant to smile about: as charismatic sheriff Raylan Givens he’s the main draw of Elmore Leonard-inspired western Justified, American GQ described him as the Most Stylish Man On TVand he’s just been nominated for an Emmy up against Jon Hamm. With a slight southern drawl (he’s the kind of 43-year-old who can say “dude” and get away with it) and having just woken up, here he tells GQ.com about stealing on set, the last time he threw a punch and shaving his head for Hitman…

GQ.com: Has your personal style been influenced by Raylan’s wardrobe?
Timothy Olyphant: I like the whole vibe – the boots are especially cool. We just got a hugepair of boots in. They look like some animal tried to eat them; they’re real vintage.

What’s a typical Justified fan like?
I have no idea. Every now and then someone says, “Hey man, like the show,” but that’s it. I don’t walk around wearing a cowboy hat and boots so that might be it. I think the beard and overcoat I wear throws people off.

When was the last time you threw a punch?
Oh gosh, it’s been a while. I punch a lot of guys on set. It’s much easier than in real life as your hands don’t hurt afterwards. The key is that you miss.

The nominations for the Critics’ Choice Television Awards were announced Monday morning with some very well deserved attention.

FX’s “Justified” walked away with four very well deserved nominations with Best Drama, Best Actor for Timothy Olyphant as Raylan Givens, Best Supporting Actress for Margo Martindale as Mags Bennett and best support actor for Walter Goggins as Boyd Crowder. Martindale was a standout show stopping character this season on “Justfied” as Mags Bennett the Harlan County matriarch of the Bennett clan. You might remember her performance as Hilary Swanks mother in “Million Dollar Baby” which was a similar character. We really are pulling for her in this role as it’s the only year she’ll be eligible to win. Olyphant has brought that area of the country to life with his portrayal of US Marshall with his arch enemy/savior nemesis/friend Boyd Crowder (Walter Goggins) both battling demons and each other in their complex onscreen relationship.

Report with videos and pics by Mike:

6:31 p.m. – Lindsay and I have been texting each other and I’m tossing a bowl of pasta in my mouth while trying to get to this event. Sigh… I was in Santa Monica for a meeting at work, and then had to get to North Hollywood and also throw some food in my mouth before I passed out… whew… What a day!

6:37 p.m. – I just got a text from Lindsay when my brand new Sprint Google Nexus phone died. I’m talking DIED! It froze on the opening screen and wouldn’t do anything. Great… I literally got it two weeks ago with my sister… sigh… Pissed off man…

6:42 p.m. – I got in, and found Lindsay in the front row holding a spot… Whew… Yep, it looks like the phone is dead. I mean it’s the brand new Sprint Google Nexus phone and it supposed to be all fancy but no… it’s crap.
