Casting Call

So I’m plotting a new book that I plan to start writing March 1. I thought I had it all nicely cast.

And then I started watching Justified.

Y’all. Have you seen Justified? I remember seeing Timothy Olyphant on something years back, as a bad guy, and I googled him and thought he was smoking. But as Rayland Givens…Oh. My. God. That voice, that accent, that body. He’s a little slender for my taste, but yowza.

My hero is a country singer from a small town, and I was going to use Puck from Glee as the model, but I just can’t get excited about him. Timothy is a bit older than I’d like since my hero is supposed to be in his early 30s and Timothy is about 10 years older, but I can’t resist that voice. I think I’m going to buy the first season of Justified, and I’ve already loaded my Netflix queue with movies he’s been in.

What do you think of him? Do you watch Justified? Does he do it for you?

    Dang! Another show I need to find time to watch. I’ll weigh in when I’ve seen more of him in motion and hear his voice. Hard to tell from this still, but looks promising…. 🙂

      Norah, I’ve watched the whole first season in a week. I bought it after watching just 3 episodes. It’s really wonderful writing, and the bad guy is fascinating. Can’t wait for season 2 this week.

      And yes, Raylan’s voice…sigh. 🙂

    I don’t watch it, but I’m sure there are filmed bits of him in his 30s to help you along. Let’s face it, doll; if you can’t get excited about your hero, nobody else will. Go with what get’s you going!
