JUSTIFIED FX RELEASE: Developed by Graham Yost (Boomtown, Speed) and starring Timothy Olyphant (Damages, Deadwood), Justified is based on the works of crime novelist Elmore Leonard, including Leonard’s short story Fire in the Hole. Fresh off the epic gun battle that concluded season one, season two of Justified finds Bo Crowder dead, and the Crowder criminal grip on Harlan County broken. Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Olyphant) must now face off against the criminal organizations that are moving to fill the void, and finds himself entangled once again with the mercurial Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins). The series co-stars Nick Searcy (CSI) as Givens’ longtime friend and boss ‘Chief Deputy Art Mullen;’ Jacob Pitts (21) as ‘Deputy Marshal Tim Gutterson;’ Erica Tazel (Life) as ‘Deputy Marshal Rachel Brooks;’ Joelle Carter (CSI: Miami) as ‘Ava Crowder;’ Boyd Crowder’s sister-in-law; and Natalie Zea (Hung) as Raylan’s ex-wife ‘Winona Hawkins.’ Walton Goggins (The Shield) also stars as ‘Boyd Crowder.’ Yost (Boomtown, The Pacific, Band of Brothers) wrote the pilot and serves as Executive Producer/Writer on the series. Leonard (Cuba Libre, Rum Punch, Get Shorty) is also an Executive Producer on the series along with Fred Golan (Boomtown, Raines), Sarah Timberman (Kidnapped), Carl Beverly (Kidnapped) and Michael Dinner (Karen Sisco), who directed the pilot episode. Justified is produced by Sony Pictures Television and FX Productions.
JUSTIFIED “The I of the Storm” Season Two Episode 3 Advance Review, Airing 2/23/2011
This week on JUSTIFIED, we get to spend some extended time with Boyd Crowder. This is my favorite episode of the season, so far but I am a huge Walton Goggins fan so I may be biased. “The I of the Storm” – The hijacking of a bus full of drugs ends in murder, and Raylan pursues the likely culprit: Boyd Crowder. Written by Dave Andron. Directed by Peter Werner.
