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: 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
