Timothy Olyphant on Justified: ‘It’s fun pretending to be cool’ and season 3 spoilers

Timothy Olyphant is making some rounds promoting season 3 of the FX series “Justified” as the season 2 DVD is released. This interview was with Parade Magazine.

Raylan is a tough guy, known for his unblinking stare. Are people intimidated by you?
I’d like them to be, but they’re usually not. I have a number of ways of telling my children how I can have them arrested. It seems to work.

The show is set in Kentucky but shot in California. Have you gotten any feedback from southerners?
I don’t feel like I run into too many people from Kentucky. I think I’m hanging around in the wrong places.

Will the body count be higher this season than last?
It might be. We’re surely off to the races in the first episode. My guess is a little more blood gets shed this year.

Are you a good shot in real life?
Anything within five feet, I’ve got it.

What’s your favorite part about playing Raylan?
Well, he doesn’t have to run. I appreciate that I don’t have to do any physical exercise. It’s fun pretending to be cool.

In other interviews Olyphant adds:

“We’re surely off to the races in the first episode. My guess is a little more blood gets shed this year.”

On Winona’s pregnancy.

“It’s one thing to try and work on a relationship fraught with problems to try and make it work and it’s another thing to make that work with a baby on the way. It certainly raises the stakes.”

Love-triangle afoot? (Carla Gugino guest stars as someone from Raylan’s past.)

“She certainly offers [romantic] possibility. She’s fantastic. I was so thrilled that she was able to come on and willing to come on and do something. It’s a pleasure working with her, she’s a pro.”

Will Raylan ever leave Harlan?

“I can tell you what we would do if we had it my way, but I don’t think that would be fair to the people who actually make these decisions. But I think the cool thing about the show and certainly the Marshal Service is that it’s a federal organization and they can go all around the country to get the job done and I think that’s a nice luxury to have.”
