    He went from a movie star to a tv star? The hell...? Oh well, maybe he likes acting and/or a steady paycheck.

    I might watch this...

    I'll try anything FX puts out.

    And TV has surpassed movies in terms of quality storytelling. Its only 13 episodes and then he can do 2 movies during his break.

    More and more movie actors are getting gigs on tv shows on FX, HBO, Showtime, Starz, etc. Those shows are better than network TV, IMO.

    Glad I spotted this thread as I hadn't heard of the show before now, definitely looks like my kind of thing, cool to see Shane from The Shield getting more work.

    Olyphant's most critically regarded work to date was on TV in Deadwood.

    He was great on FX's Damages last year as the deadly Wes.

    That's gonna be one sick-ass series! And I actually like Damages, so I'm watching this bad boy on the 16th.

    If a TV show is successful its a steady paying gig for several years. And Olyphant hasn't had a lot of success as a leading man. Remember Hitman?

    Yeah. I never watched that show (don't have the pay-movie channels for one). I forgot he was in it. He did Damages too on FX it seems as well.

    this might give Olyphant permanent badass status if this show is as good as it looks
