What can I say about Mr. Olyphant? Hmm….well I first noticed him as a cyber terrorist, Thomas Gabriel, in “Live Free, Die Hard”, but I didn’t see the movie right away. I finally caught it on TV and he was one of the best parts of that movie (him and Justin Long).
Then I was able to watch the movie “Hitman”, which I loved, and that not only starred Mr. Olyphant as Agent 47, but also Dougray Scott– who is the reason why I have a particular handful of cool friends because we all met online on a Dougray Scott fanpage.
Then I noticed that he was going to be in a new series on FX called “Justified”, where he plays U.S. Marshall Raylan Givens. He shot a man while working in Florida (in his defense, the guy fired first, so he claims his shooting was “justified”) and then gets transferred back to his childhood state of Kentucky. I’m addicted to the show, and I swear that it has little to do with his appearance and the fact that he wears a cowboy hat like nobody’s business. I like the storyline and the supporting cast is awesome too.
Anyway, according to IMDB, it’s Timothy Olyphant’s birthday today! Happy Birthday to You, Happy Birthday to You! Happy Birthday Dear Mr. Olyphant, Happy Birthday to Youuuuu! Check out his other movies here.
Happy Birthday, Timothy Olyphant!
