Just Before I Go had its premiere this week and opens in theatres this weekend, so it’s interview time. This is the first one that showed up on YouTube:
Just a heads-up to UK fans:
Sky On Demand will exclusively premiere the sixth and final season of the FX series. The final 13 episodes of the Timothy Olyphant fronted drama will be available to UK audiences in the Box Sets section of Sky On Demand from Wednesday, April 15th, less than 24 hours after the series finale airs on FX in the United States. – TV Wise
Yahoo! TV has a new interview with Garret, mostly about Justified, but he also talks about Hand of God, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Ingrid Michaelson’s video. You can read the full article here.
A new episode of Justified, “Dark as a Dungeon,” airs to tonight at 10 pm on FX. Here is a quick preview:
Episode 8 / Production #608 – “Dark As a Dungeon” (Airs March 10, 10:00 pm e/p) – Raylan extends an unexpected offer to Markham. Boyd and Ava find themselves in Walker’s dangerous company. Written by Chris Provenzano & VJ Boyd; directed by Gwyneth Horder-Payton.
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.
GARRET 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.
TV Insider has a new interview with Garret and it’s a pretty fun read, with some mild spoilers for tonight’s episode. You can read it here.
And here is what happens tonight:
Episode 7 / Production #607 – “The Hunt” (Airs March 3, 10:00 pm e/p) – A visit from his baby daughter threatens to pull Raylan away from the hunt for a dangerous fugitive. Boyd, having learned that Ava’s been lying to him, takes her on a hunting trip that she may never come back from. Written by Taylor Elmore & Keith Schreier; directed by John Dahl.
