I hope everyone has had a chance to catch the new Deadwood movie on HBO. If so please tell us what you thought of it in the comments below.
Olyphant recently talked to Scott Meslow for GQ.com. He shared some details of his early career and what has led him to the Deadwood movie.
Tim tells a story about going to audition for a commercial. The part called for a handsome young man in a t-shirt and jeans. Olyphant thinking the part was tailor made for him, walked into a room full of very handsome young men in t-shirts and jeans. Realizing there was more involved than looks, he began to get serious and enrolled in acting classes.
This proved to be a valuable step for the young actor. Tim shares that he was offered a part on a soap opera, which his wife encouraged him to take. He turned the part down and went on to be cast in small parts in “The First Wives Club” and “Sex and the City”.
His decision proved to be wise as he landed a part in “Scream 2” and the movie that brought him a lot of buzz, “Go”. His career has been solid ever since.
Olyphant has enjoyed a good level of success without becoming a bonafide movie star. He likes flying under the radar. In his words can you imagine Iron Man attending his kid’s swim meet. Tim has struck the elusive Hollywood balance of being successful without losing his privacy.
Stars of the reunion movie Deadwood attended the LA premiere at the Arclight Hollywood on Tuesday, May 14th. Timothy Olyphant and Ian McShanewere both in attendance.
The film gives fans of the original series have campaigned for a movie for over a decade. Fans wanted some closure to the abrupt ending the series had in 2006. The long wait is over and the Deadwood movie will premiere on HBO on May 31st.
The movie picks up 10 years after the series end. All the original cast members returned for the bittersweet farewell to their characters.
Olyphant was the lone holdout to sign on to the movie. In the end he decided not to be the only asshole and agreed to the project. His fears were apparently not realized as he has had nothing but praise for the experience.
This will likely be the last Deadwood project even even though the movie left opening for the story to continue. Series creator, David Milch, recently revealed he has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease.
Lots of news on the Olyphant front lately. Tim has lots of projects coming out this year.
Tim provides the voice of Willard Stenk in the animated movie “The Missing Link”. The film also features the voice talents of Hugh Jackman, Zach Galifianakis and Zoe Saldana.
The long awaited Deadwoodmovie will also be premiering on HBO on May 31st. The movie brings together the entire cast of the original Deadwood series. It picks up ten years later. Hopefully it will provide some closure for the fans of the original series.
Tim appears in the Spring/Summer issue of Rogue Magazine. As usual he doesn’t make the cover, but he does have some nice pics and an interview inside.
Timtells the magazine he isn’t worried about career goals. He tends to focus on what he wants to do when he is not working. He also states he doesn’t question his success, he just enjoys it!
Olyphant is pretty busy for someone who doesn’t worry about career goals. In addition to Santa Clarita Diet he has a role in the upcoming Quentin Tarantino movie “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” and the rumored to be filming in the fall long awaited “Deadwood” movie.
Anyway, pick up a copy of Rogue magazine to read more of Tim’s interview.
I hope all my fellow Olyphant fans have been enjoying the second season of Santa Clarita Diet. Once again looks like Tim was overlooked by the Emmys. At least it spares him the pain of sitting through the highly political ceremony.
The news of the week is Timothy Olyphant will be joining other celebrities for the 2018 Chris Everett-Raymond James Pro Celebrity Tennis Classic November 9 through the 11th. Other celebrities will include Chris Noth, January Jones, Seal, Jon Lovitz, David Cook, Tate Donovan and Jamie McShane.
Celebrities will be paired with tennis pros for the event held at the DelRay Beach Tennis Center. Tennis pros include Martina Navratilova and Luke Jensen.
It seems Lionsgate has picked up LAIKA’s animated feature “Missing Link”.
Written by Chris Butler (Paranorman) it stars Hugh Jackman as Sir Lionel Frost who thinks he is the world’s expert on monsters and myths. Sir Lionel travels to the Pacific Northwest where he hopes to find a legendary creature he believes to be the missing link.
Other news on the Olyphant front is the Deadwoodmovie is reportedly to begin filming this fall. That is according to Kim Dickenswho plays Joanie Stubbs in the movie. That is great news for Deadwood fans!

By all accounts the Deadwoodmovie is also moving forward. Olyphant revealed he has read the script and he thinks it is amazing. He still remains a bit skeptical but with Olyphantyou can never tell what is real and what is BS. So we will see.
Tim appeared on Late Night With Seth Myers on Tuesday, April 10th. Olyphantdiscusses the name Myers gave his new baby. The pair enjoyed a lively exchange about kids. Mr. Olyphant never disappoints with his ironic humor.
Tim will also be appearing on Conan Monday, April 16th. Conan is on TBS at 10:00 p.m. Central Time.
Olyphant made news this past week by declaring the Deadwoodmovie will never happen. He seems to think they will never get all the players together. I tend to think that it is possible. I believe Tim likes to exaggerate. I guess only time will tell.
What does everyone think of the chances of a Deadwoodmovie. David Milch says it will happen, Tim says it won’t. Who do you believe. Let me know in the comments.
Get ready for your Timothy Olyphant fix! Santa Clarita Diet Season 2 will be airing on March 23 on Netflix.
