YOU KNOW HE'S ON YOUR PRISON-WIFE LIST:

The Long Arm (and Broad Shoulders) of the Law: In praise of Timothy Olyphant, the time-displaced, Old West hero of the best cop show on television, FX's Justified (Alex Pappademas, March 2011, GQ)

Honestly, though, we knew this show was something special the minute one of our straight male friends, during a discussion of how well its star, Timothy Olyphant, wears his urban-cowboy denim shirt/skinny tie/Stetson ensembles, commented without missing a beat, "It's his shoulders. They're nice and wide." But as Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, a time-displaced Old West hero who goes down mean, meth-belt roads but is not himself mean, wearing his emotions close to the Kevlar, resolving standoffs with steel nerves as often as hot lead, Olyphant isn't just America's Next Top Man Crush.
