Just yesterday we heard the awesome news that 'Justified's' Boyd Crowder would find himself with a new friend next season in the form of 'ER' vet Ron Eldard, atop the news that Raylan Givens (Timpthy Olyphant) would have a friend of his own with comedian Patton Oswalt. But with the new faces approaching for the early 2013 season, is anyone going to get left behind? Winona (Natalie Zea) pulled away quite a bit last year, so might we have seen the last of her?
At this rate, it looks like the fourth season of FX's hit gunslinger drama 'Justified' might have more friends than enemies, the way these casting notices keep coming out. A few weeks ago we heard the awesome news that comedian Patton Oswalt would join the Timothy Olyphant series as sidekick and high school friend to Raylan Givens, and now it seems Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) will have a new friend of his own. But who is Ron Eldard's mysterious military man?
While we might know him best as hard-nosed charming Marshal Raylan Givens, of FX's 'Justified,' it's easy to forget that actor Timothy Olyphant has quite the comedic talent as well. Olyphant appeared on 'The Office' several season ago (in an arc that went precisely nowhere), but for his next sitcom gig ,he won't have to travel very far. The 'Justified' star will next popl up in an upcoming episode of 'The League's fourth season, but what is it that rubs him the wrong way with the guys?
Well, pull us up a failure pile in a sadness bowl, Patton Oswalt is coming to 'Justified' season 4! All year long the word has felt curiously quiet on the fourth outing for our favorite FX gunslinger Raylan Givens, other than a few recent casting snippets, so we're glad that details are finally starting to emerge. But given the comedian's wide-range of characters on TV over the years, who might Oswalt be popping up as this time?
Those who caught last night's all new 'Revolution' episode "Chained Heat" (and if you didn't, why not?) might have noticed a startingly familiar face walking about: 'Justified' star David Meunier! Meunier took the role of General Monroe's torturous Sgt. Strausser, but does that mean that Meunier's 'Justified' character Johnny Crowder won't be present for the upcoming fourth season? And if so, how many episodes will he be around for?
As fans of the FX-adapted Elmore Leonard series 'Justified' well know, the show would be nothing without its iconic villains, from Boyd Crowder to Mags Bennett, even the more recent city slicker Robert Quarles. So with the show poised to head into its fourth season next year, who could possibly take the reigns as Harlan's next big bad? Will it be someone close to Raylan Givens' own heart, or someone new?
As much as we love the first season of adorkably (yes, I said it) funny FOX sitcom 'New Girl,' we watched the show under the impression Jess, Nick, Schmidt, Winnston and Cece wouldn't find themselves in any hardcore science-fiction scenarios. That's why the recent 'New Girl' season 2 casting of 'Justified' veteran Raymond Barry has us more than a little curious, as you'll never believe who he's been tapped to play. Seriously! You really can't believe it.
FX, the network that put its faith in 'The Shield' and 'Justified.' Tim Roth, the brilliant actor who has appeared in everything from 'Reservoir Dogs' to 'Rob Roy.' Alexander Cary, one of the executive producers on 'Homeland.' With these three components, we don't even need a title for the "bank robbery family drama" they're developing...we just want to know when we can watch it!
If there's one thing 'Justified' fans know, its that the modern FX gunslinger series appreciates its villains. From Robert Quarles, to Mags Bennett, to Boyd Crowder and back again, we're always in for a memorable performance. Should it surprise you, then, that one 'Modern Family' star is looking to shed his nice-guy persona for something a little darker?
It's only been a matter of hours since 'Justified' concluded its third FX season with the spectacularly arm-chopping "Slaughterhouse," but that's no reason we can't start running wild with speculation and existing details! Plus, the man behind the curtain might just be able to clear up a few details for us...
