    “It’s an Honor Just to Be Snubbed”: Timothy Olyphant Gives Emmy Campaigning Another Try

    Via Vanity Fair: The Emmy-nominated actor lets loose in a conversation spanning his rumored feud with Walton Goggins, filming Noah Hawley’s Alien in Thailand, and oh yeah, his awards chances for the Justified revival.

    BY PHILIP CHEUNG/THE NEW YORK TIMES/REDUX.

    Vanity Fair: I hear you’re taking a little break from life in Thailand right now, where you’re shooting the new Alien series. I’m sure you cannot talk much about it, but—

    Timothy Olyphant: I’ll tell you whatever you want to know. Go ahead, hit me.

    Well, how’s it going, working with Noah Hawley and all that?

    There’s nothing wrong with that. I don’t know if you’re familiar, but he’s very good at what he does. Very good.

    We talk about him on this podcast from time to time.

    Oh, really? He makes the Little Gold Men cut?

    He makes some things that may or may not be in the Little Gold Men conversation, yes—as do you, by the way.

    Well, that’s nice to hear.

    I’ve been a fan of Justified for a long time. Since we’re already talking about the awards nature of this show, perhaps—I feel like this is a show that was often underrated in that regard.

    David, I’m not going to argue with you. If you say it was underrated, I’m just going to take your word for it.

    Let’s put it another way. The show had a great run initially. It was a critical hit. There were a lot of fans, obviously enough for it to come back so many years later. How did you observe its initial run? Did you feel like perhaps it wasn’t fully embraced in that part of the industry?

    I thought we deserved a lot more awards and acclaim and popularity. [Pause] I’m just joking. [Laughs.]

    Damn, and I was nodding too.

    You were right there. You were right there with me, David! I love you. You know what? I don’t care what they say about you. I say you’re a good dude.

    What are they saying about me?

    Listen, that’s another podcast. When I think about the whole deal, I had a ball making [Justified]. It was a great gig. I was living and working in LA. It was a steady gig. It was a ton of fun. One of those gigs you can’t believe you’re getting paid for. I felt very lucky to do it as long as we did.

    You’ve said that you always knew you’d bring Raylan back at some point. What about him felt like the kind of character who could live on TV in that way?

    Elmore [Leonard] has got a timeless quality to his work and I felt there was a character that could age well, meaning he could come along for the ride with the times. You could keep revisiting him. I just thought there was a lot of room to play around with the genre—not unlike what they do when you see those Bond films and they keep doing them and they keep bringing them back. They have the luxury of bringing along with them the baggage they want and reinventing the parts they aren’t so proud of. I thought we could potentially play a similar game.

    Justified’s Future Gets Update From Walton Goggins!

    Source: screenrant.com

    FX has yet to give an update on the future of Justified after Boyd’s prison break, but Goggins did offer some positive news during his SXSW appearance to promote his film The Uninvited, exclusively telling Screen Rant that he is ready for more Justified and is just waiting on FX to give the go-ahead. Check out his remarks below:

    There’s always a future in my imagination. Always. I think everybody – all the players involved – want another lap. I didn’t anticipate that, and it took a while to kind of jump back into that. But once we did it, we kind of kept it from everybody. I had such a good time, and I think Tim was inspired. And there is more to say, actually. I didn’t think there was, but there is. Everything is in line. I think everybody’s just waiting for schedules and FX to say, “Go.” We’ll see. We’ll see what happens.

    Alien FX TV series sets multi-season plans

    Via Geek Culture: The Alien TV series is officially in production at FX says director Noah Hawley (Fargo) in an interview with Collider, after the SAG-AFTRA strikes delayed work on the show in late August 2023. With the first season in production, Hawley shared that the series has already been greenlit to become a recurring series instead of a limited series.

    Filming will take place in Thailand, and while the series was originally expected to arrive in 2024, a delayed start could mean a 2025 release instead.

    FX, the studio behind the project, expressed that they trust Hawley’s direction for the series, and “the story itself can drive how long it is. We want quality, not quantity. I knew that their desire was for a recurring series, not a limited series, and I had an idea that I was excited about, that I could see the escalation of it from one year to another.”

    Timothy Olyphant joins Noah Hawley’s FX Series ‘Alien’

    Source: Deadline

    Timothy Olyphant is reuniting with Noah Hawley and FX, signing on for a major role in the upcoming Alien series. Olyphant, who recurred on Season 4 of Hawley’s FX anthology series Fargo, is set to star opposite Sydney Chandler in Hawley‘s prequel to the Alien franchise, sources tell Deadline.

    Details about Olyphant’s character are not being disclosed. I hear he plays Kirsh, a synth who acts as a mentor and trainer for Chandler’s Wendy who is a hybrid, a meta-human who has the brain and consciousness of a child but the body of an adult.

    In addition to Chandler, Olyphant joins a main cast that, as Deadline reported, also includes Alex Lawther as a soldier named CJ, Samuel Blenkin as Boy Kavalier, a CEO, as well as Essie Davis as Dame Silvia, Adarsh Gourav as Slightly and Kit Young as Tootles.
