First Look at the FX Channel’s Lawman with Timothy Olyphant

6 Comments

I always knew Timothy Olyphant of Deadwood fame had a little Clint Eastwood in him. After seeing this three minutes of footage from Lawman, the new “modern Western” from the FX Channel and “Speed” writer Graham Yost, I think I was wrong: Olyphant’s character in Lawman doesn’t have a little Eastwood in him, he has a lot. Check out the footage shown to press at the recent TCA.

Lawman is based on a short story by Elmore Leonard called “Fire in the Hole”, and will star Olyphant as a modern-day Marshall who takes out the trash while somehow managing to keep his cowboy hat on at all times and never losing his cool, cause, you know, he’s cool that way. The show is scheduled to appear on the FX Channel’s slate in the Spring of 2010.

In the pilot episode, The Shield’s Walton Goggins will play the villain.

    Gotta get me some cable. I am an Olyphant fan. I even thought he was one of the few things likeable in the godawful adaptation of Stephen King’s “Dreamcather.” Loved him in Scream 2, even in Hitman (though I think he was miscast) but I’ve never seen Deadwood but heard it was great. This looks pretty damn sweet. Love a good Western, modern or otherwise.

    I got to be an extra on the pilot for this. I don’t know if I’ll be in the final production but I was definitely in a scene with the Nazzi guy in the clip and with his car.

    We filmed outside of Pittsburgh in a rural area which was supposed to be Kentucky.
