My Favorite Actor: Timothy Olyphant

I don't talk about myself much around here. I figure that's not why you're here and anyway, that's what Facebook is for, though I don't update that as much as I probably should either.

But I'm starting to feel like I'm getting to know some of you guys and a little reciprocation would be good, right? So I think I'm going to participate in Brother Calvin's 30-Day Challenge. Only, I'm changing it to a 30 Week Challenge for a couple of reasons.

Mostly, I just don't have time to commit to an extra post every day. But also, if you really don't care about my favorite flower or want to see pictures of my room, then it'll be much easier for you to skip past this if I limit it to Sundays.

First up: Favorite Actor. Of the moment, anyway. It seems like this changes annually, but right now it's definitely Timothy Olyphant. I've been a fan of this guy's work since being so surprised by Hitman. He popped up again in A Perfect Getaway - possibly my favorite movie from last year - and was my favorite part of it. Though I wasn't totally excited to see The Crazies, Olyphant made it fun to watch. And now he's in Justified, my favorite new TV show.

He's a talented actor, but he's also loaded with charisma. He's young Harrison Ford, is who he is. And while I'm sure he'll eventually pick a role in something horrible and I'll be disillusioned, for now I can't get enough of the guy.

I too am loving me some 'Justified'. It has some of the best writing out there and is just jam packed with interesting characters.

While I wouldn't say Olyphant is my favorite actor, he's definitely up there. Justified is one of my favorite shows as well. Excellent choice, sir.
