Timothy Olyphant talks ‘Justified’ season 4, surprises, dealing with Arlo and Raylan not being corrupted

The FX series “Justified” returns Tuesday night and star Timothy Olyphant is making the rounds promoting the show, dodging details and hyping the surprises yet to come.

While talking with Collider in an interview released Tuesday, the “I Am Number Four” star confirmed there is a lot of surprises yet to come.

“The short answer is yes, but we don’t want to spoil anything.  We do our best to keep people leaning forward.”

Olyphant’s character’s father Arlo was the epicenter of the drama in season 3 with an exciting and shocking role in the twist to the ending. Now it begs to question how Raylan Givins deals with Arlo.

“That’s a good question.  Raylan’s not really dealing with it.  I think that Raylan does his best to try not to deal with those kind of things.  That’s what makes him Raylan.”

One interesting angle is how Raylan avoids becoming corrupt with so much around him, almost consuming him at times.

“He seems to be walking right up to the edge now.  It’s fun, watching how close he can get to that without crossing.  There’s a fun game that happens in the writers’ room now, where others try to pen down who he is and what his intentions are, or what would’ve happened, had it not gone exactly the way it did.  Raylan refuses to get pinned like that.”
