I hope everyone enjoyed the eclipse on Monday. It created quite the stir all over the world. Sun worshipers delight!
I don’t know if Mr. Olyphantenjoyed the eclipse as he avoids most social media. I do know he has two new movies lined up, Beef and Driven. Santa Clarita Diet will also be enjoying a second season making Timothy a very busy man.
It has also been reported by several cast member of “Deadwood” that they have been contacted about the HBO revival of the popular western show. Things are sounding good for the long awaited “Deadwood” movie.
If you are in the mood for a romantic comedy check out “Catch and Release”. Olyphant stars with Jennifer Garner. Although the movie was panned by critics it is worth a look for Olyphant and Garner’s story. The movie suffered too many plotlines, mainly too much Kevin Smith. Smith blamed Tim for the movie’s failure but I believe the blame likes squarely on Smith. The focus should have been entirely on the love story between Tim and Garner. Even with all its flaws, it is one of my favorite Olyphant movies. Great for a rainy afternoon!
If horror is more your thing try “The Crazies”. A modern day take on zombies. It seems the water in Ogden Marsh, Iowa is turning the small town residents into murderous psychopaths. Olyphant plays the sheriff and Radha Mitchell plays his pregnant doctor wife.
Hello fellow Olyphant fans! It is nearing the weekend so I am getting happier every day. The weather is hot and dry here. A good time to stay inside and do a little Timothy viewing.
I have been hearing a little Emmy buzz coming Tim’s way. Some bloggers are putting his name out there for “Santa Clarita Diet”. One mentioned his talent for physical comedy. So maybe he will be acknowledged this year. We can hope.
Since it is a slow Olyphant summer let’s revisit some of our favorite Olyphant movies for a little summer viewing.
If you haven’t seen his turn as a drug dealer in “Go”, you should give it a look. A young Olyphant makes out with Katie Holmes on a staircase and goes after a woman who cheats him out of some drugs. His performance is both amusing and menacing at the same time.
“A Perfect Getaway” is another of my personal favorites. Two couples vacationing in Hawaii. One couple is the Honeymoon Killers. But which one? Beautiful scenery and lots of intrigue. Great for a lazy afternoon of viewing.
If you are in the mood for a little horror, check out “The Crazies”. Olyphant plays a small town sheriff faced with the horror of his citizens becoming psychopaths. When the government moves in troops how will he save himself and his pregnant wife from being terminated to contain the virus.
If none of those appeal to you maybe a binge watch session of our favorite marshal Raylan Givens is more to your liking. “Justified” is available for streaming on Amazon. Five seasons is a lot of great binge watching.
Well I have convinced myself to revisit some of my old favorites this weekend. Anyone want to join me? Happy Timothy Olyphant viewing!
He uses his quirky personality to perfection in “Scream 2”. The killing continues as Sydney (the survivor of Scream) hits the college campus. A young Olyphant is among her circle of friends.

“The Crazies” is a great scary night choice. The film is a remake of George Romero’s movie of the same name. Olyphant plays David Dutten, sheriff of a small town in Iowa. Radha Mitchell plays his doctor wife.
When townspeople began to become psychotic, Dutten finds himself in a load of trouble. When the government men show up and begin to round everyone up, Dutten takes his wife and flees. Will they make it out alive? Heads up ladies Olyphant is super hot in this one. It is violent but Olyphant’s presence helped me make it through.
Tim in Dreamcatcher
I read Stephen King’s book “Dreamcatcher”when it first came out. I was excited to see Olyphant in the movie version. The movie has a certain gross out factor but Olyphant shines as always. If you like Stephen King’s brand of horror, you will like “Dreamcatcher”.
Well there you have it. Get your scary movie fix and your Olyphant fix at the same time. Go ahead you know you want to!
