Olyphant’s appearance on last night’s episode of the Conan O’Brien show (to promote the third season of “Justified”) would confirm as much, for Olyphant reveals that he had an interesting Emmy speech planned if he’d have won in 2011: “Kyle Chandler won the Emmy, it was lovely, I was very happy for him.
I feel like he deprived some people of a good speech.
My opening line — this was my wife’s idea actually — I was going to look at [the trophy] and then look out at my wife of twenty years and say, ‘Well, honey, this is it.
I’m finally leaving you.’” When I really stop and think about it, twenty years really is a hell of a long time (Timothy and Alexis were college sweethearts), so I’d think that the ability to joke about leaving his wife (and the fact that it was her idea in the first place) says something about Olyphant’s view of Hollywood.
Before I jump into this story, there’s something very strange that I’ve noticed about Timothy “Swagger” Olyphant, and it’s been bugging me for awhile.
