Pulp Fiction: ‘Justified’ and Hollywood’s Love Affair with Elmore Leonard

Share

Word and Film

FX’s acclaimed drama series “Justified” returns for its fourth season on January 8. Inspired by Elmore Leonard’s stories, it’s about Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant), a Deputy U.S. Marshal transferred from Miami back to his coal-mining hometown of Harlan, Kentucky. Raylan’s run-ins with the crooks of the week, as well as his personal relationships with the community’s various outlaw organizations (which includes his father), form the basis of this modern Western. Riveting, funny, and with an outstanding cast (notably Walton Goggins as sometime antagonist Boyd Crowder), it’s one of the best shows on television — and one of Leonard’s favorite versions of his own work.
