New interview for Justified

Entertainment Weekly has a nice, long interview with Garret about this week’s episode. You can find the full article here.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Talk to me a bit about how you understand Walker and his role in the whole legal weed/criminal enterprise. He was kind of presented as the Big Bad for this season, up until Markham comes in.

Justified - The HuntGARRET DILLAHUNT: I don’t know if he was presented as the main guy, but I can certainly see how some people would jump to that conclusion. I thought he was cool, and if you want me to summarize him, he’s an ex-military sort of emissary for Avery Markham, sent to procure land in Harlan.

Markham has a history there, which I think is why he’s so intent on buying up land there and making his business work and grow there. But even in the legal pot business… you know, here in the States, pot can be legal by state law, but it’s still not legal federally, so they can’t put their money in federal banks. That’s a big problem. They make a lot of money, but where do you store it? Well, they have to protect it themselves, so that’s where his security team comes in, to guard the money. It puts us on the criminal side of the business, and puts Raylan and his team on our ass. And the fact that we have a whole bunch of money just sitting in a safe puts the criminals on our ass. We’re kind of caught in the middle. What I like about Walker is that he doesn’t take anybody lightly. He’s a very capable adversary for both Raylan and Boyd. What we wanted to avoid was the stereotypical bad guy who comes to town, sort of looking down his nose at the yokels. That’s a dynamic that’s been seen ad nauseam in television. So hopefully we’ve set him up as a bad enough dude so that it’s even more impressive when someone else takes him down.

Justified preview & new interviews

A new episode of Justified airs tonight at 10 pm on FX.

Starpulse has a new interview with Garret, mostly about the show.

Sam Elliott and Garret Dillahunt in JustifiedBecause Garret may have outdone himself with the character of Ty Walker, the former military operator turned paramilitary leader who’s already making things interesting for both Raylan and Boyd Crowder. Walker is undoubtedly a very bad man, but because of who he’s played by, we know that he’s not going to be a lightweight.

“I think he’s a force to be reckoned with, that’s for sure,” Garret said. “He’s a little off his nut. He’s not afraid of anybody but he’s not taking anyone lightly. A danger on that show – or any show – is when you have an antagonist come in and fall into the cliche of taking everyone too lightly, and we didn’t want to do that. And he doesn’t.”

Check out the rest of the article here.

There is another article with a short interview at TV Guide.

“We just liked someone who was incredibly in control and then could lose it,” executive producer Graham Yost says of Dillahunt’s character, Ty Walker, a special ops veteran who’s currently spending his days trying to buy property in Harlan and his nights hunkered down with the other members of his private contract security detail at a pizza parlor that used to be a bank.

Adds Dillahunt: “This guy is a little lost. There’s definitely something off, something loose. There’s some kind of damage. He could probably use some help rather than just jumping into creating another war zone for himself. He might enjoy his work too much. He might have a little peccadillos that really get under his skin more than they should. If I was a relative of his I’d say, ‘Get some counseling. Quit this job and go get some counseling.'”

Synopsis and teaser for tonight’s episode:

Episode 3 / Production #603 – “Noblesse Oblige” (Airs February 3, 10:00 pm e/p) – Raylan follows a trail of illegal explosives in an attempt to pin Boyd, who discovers he’s run afoul of a dangerous new player in town.
Written by Taylor Elmore & Benjamin Cavell; directed by Peter Weller.

Justified season 6 premieres tonight

Justified is finally back tonight with the season opener “Fate’s Right Hand,” which airs at 10 pm on FX.

TV Fanatic has a new interview with Garret, mostly about the show, Ty Walker, and some of the other new characters we’ll be seeing this season. Hit the link to read the full article.

TV Fanatic: Having seen the first two episodes of this final season, I’m a little worried about everybody. This guy seems like he could be a loose cannon.

garret dillahunt,ty walker,justifiedGarret Dillahunt: Yeah, he is. You know, as it should in the last season, he should be a worthy adversary for Raylan and for everybody else.

TVF: Tell me first of all about the beard, because you’ve got a nice scruffy beard. Is that your beard, did you grow it for the role?

GD: It is mine. I would hate to wear a fake beard. That would be the most uncomfortable thing.
I have a series of my own called Hand of God for Amazon. We shot the pilot for that last year and we go back into production on season one next month. I have a beard in that and when I was trying to fill the time between the shooting of the pilot and the resumption of the series, Justified being the thing I found to do, I wanted to do as many as I could. I was afraid the closer it got to start time for Hand of God, the less time I’d have to grow my beard back for it. So I just kept the beard. In fact, just let it keep growing, so I had a bigger one for “Justified.” That’s all the logic behind that. — TV Fanatic
