Take me out to the ballgame! Who could resist a game that has Raylan Givens throwing out the first pitch. That is exactly what the fans at the L.A. Dodgers and San Francisco Giants baseball game got to witness Wednesday, June 26th.
Timothy Olyphant stepped up to the plate and threw the first pitch to start off the game. The Justified star brought luck to the Dodgers as they won the game 4 to 2. Olyphant was joined by good friend, Eric Stonestreet, who seemed to be giving him advice on his big moment. Tim sported a Dodgers jersey as he stepped onto the mound.
By all accounts the pitch he threw was a curveball. Typical Raylan style. Just when u think you have him figured out he throws you a curve! Seeing as how Raylan loves baseball, I hope the boy in Olyphant was as thrilled as I know the boy in Raylan would have been.
Hats off to the Dodgers for inviting Mr. Olyphant to throw the first pitch. All the Justified fans salute you!
I remember when I first saw the advertisements for a new TV show “Justified”, I thought oh that stars that actor with the funny name. I had heard of Timothy Olyphant but wasn’t quite sure what movies he had made that might be familiar to me. At the time I had never seen an episode of “Deadwood”.
But after watching the teasers for “Justified”, I thought I would give it a look. So I watched the first episode at the 10 o’clock time slot. FX ran it twice back to back that night. Well needless to say Mr. Olyphant blew me away in the role of Raylan Givens. I loved the show. It was witty, exciting and had a biting sense of humor sprinkled throughout the show. The writing was so much better than I had come to expect from television.
How could I have missed this sexy guy with a swagger that matched John Wayne and Gary Cooper combined. When he meets Ava, the girl who had a crush on him in high school, on her front porch the sexual energy he exuded made me fan myself. I had found a new favorite! This guy had it all – handsome, tough, funny and sexy as hell. And he was surrounded by other amazing actors. I fell in love with the show about the lawman from Kentucky who reluctantly finds himself back home.
Justified is a throwback to all the old westerns I remember from my childhood. Raylan Givens is the cool quick draw gunslinger. He sees justice in shades of black and white. Right is right and wrong is wrong. He seems like a lawman that has been born a hundred years too late.
Olyphant’s laid back portrayal of this misunderstood marshal is a joy to watch. Givens always seems unflappable but his eyes and expressions tell a story all their own. The way Olyphant subtly shows who Givens really is with a look or an expression is brilliant acting in my opinion. I love to watch his quirky little nuances. He is clearly an underrated actor.
Ever since that first episode of Justified, I have searched for other Olyphant projects. I have been delighted by performances from comedy to drama, both which Olyphant handles deftly. His turn on “My Name is Earl” is hilarious and not a leading man turn by any means. His romantic role in “Catch and Release” was sexy and sweet. And his villain roles in Scream 2 and Live Free and Die Hard were joyful to watch. I even began watching HBO’s hit “Deadwood”. Olyphant played Seth Bullock, a man who could quiet a riot with a stare. Olyphant should have had an Emmy on his shelf for his portrayal of Bullock.
I have enjoyed all of his movies from “Advice from a Caterpillar” to “The Crazies”. He never turns in a bad performance. Not to say he hasn’t been in a few bad movies. But he is always the stand out thing in an otherwise ho hum movie. His performance never disappoints.
