Timothy Olyphant looks ahead to ‘Justified’ season 6, Elmore Leonard on Raylan’s hat

During panel discussion with Tom O’Neil, Hollywood awards expert and founder of GoldDerby.com, the cast of Justified discussed the end of season 5, what lies ahead for the characters and star Timothy Olyphant revealed what he’d like to see as the show ends with a sixth season.

“I want to see it slow down,” he said. And “in the end, it has to come down to Ava and Boyd and Raylan” and their families.

Ava, played by Joelle Carter, will be out of prison by the end of season 5, a likely primer headed into the final act. Olyphant warns that the darker tone is the transition and glue for the ending.

“Those three people, at the end of this season, they’re all in big trouble.”

Olyphant confirmed creator Elmore Leonard wasn’t such a fan of the hat the actor chose to serve as Raylan’s iconic headgear.

While taking photos with Olyphant during a set visit, Leonard told him, “Don’t feel like you have to wear the hat… even on the show. Maybe a gust of wind comes up.”

“That’s when I knew I liked him,” Olyphant said, adding, “Every now and then, I keep thinking, maybe the hat’s gonna get shot before I do,” and Raylan will go get a new one.

“Justified” airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on FX.

  3. Keep This Show On!!!!! That's Justified says:

    Finally, a few seasons ago, this excellent show, ” Justified”, appeared after the Deadwood series was long gone. My husband liked “Deadwood”. When I began watching “Justifed” & knew I was hooked, we realized that Timothy O. was in Deadwood, also. Anyhow, am a big fan of this man, his characterization, and personality. Please let this show continue!
