I have been watching a TV series on Prime called “Justified.” It is a formulaic program for which every resident of Kentucky should be deeply offended. The writers conjure up one hillbilly caricature after another, then allowing them to be brutally murdered by U.S. Deputy Marshall Rayland Givens, played by Timothy Olyphant. I have not counted, but Marshall Givens has to have killed twenty people by now, and seldom misses a day of work as a result. The shootings are always self defense.
I went looking for some background on Olyphant, only to find that he is scrubbed clean, as are his parents. We are told he was born in Hawaii in 1968, moved to Modesto, California, where his father worked as a VP for Gallo wineries. His mother (now divorced) is a Gideon, and we are told that his father now owns an ‘extensive’ cattle ranch in Arizona. They too are scrubbed.
Here is his Geni search result:
Here is his photo, the thing that caught my eye:
The most striking feature of these Matt Damon Batch members is the hairline, usually offering almost perfect alignment. In the case of Olyphant, we also get perfect ear, eyes, eyes, nose, mouth and jaw alignment. Damon and Olyphant are two years apart in age, we are told, and were born of different mothers. Other than that, they appear to be replicas.
Welcome aboard, Timothy Olyphant. Batch membership is growing quickly. It has become predictable, and frankly, is getting a little tedious.
