Timothy Olyphant sports stringy, unkempt hair in NYC: would you still hit it?

Timothy Olyphant

Here are what I consider to be some unusually dreadful photos of Timothy Olyphant walking through a wet and windy New York City yesterday. Mister Olyphantastic is currently in the big apple to promote the last leg of season four of “Justified,” and he’s making the talk show rounds, which we’ll get to in a moment.

First though, I’d like to talk about the Olyphant hair situation that’s going on in these photos. Allegedly, Olyphant himself wanted his Raylan Givens character to have longish hair this season because it supposedly symbolizes the disheveled turmoil that he’s experiencing at this stage in his lawman existence.

(Bad move, Olyphant. Don’t make me permanently change my alliance to Walton Goggins and his alter ego, Boyd Crowder. Because I can, and I will.)

As much as it pains me to admit, the shaggy hair is truly awful and masks the cute greying temples that Olyphant has been developing of late. Mind you, I’d still hit it because at least the man still looks phenomenal in a pair of jeans, right? That’s the Olyphant’s saving grace — along with his ability to wear a hat. Hey, some people don’t have “hat heads,” and I am one of those unfortunate types. Olyphant, however, looks good in any hat, not to mention a hat and nothing else at all. Or so I imagine. The “Justified” producers have yet to show him shirtless and wearing a hat as well. Can we get on that, FX?

While in Manhattan, Olyphant stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and he was his usual charming self in the interview and even cleaned his hair up a bit. Amusingly enough, Olyphant reveals that he only ended up appearing in his breakthrough role as the drug dealer in Go because he got fired from the Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman movie, Practical Magic. I think he definitely came out on top in that tradeoff.

So Olyphant thinks he’s no good at romcoms, right? Well, was pretty unforgettable in Catch and Release, which was a romantic dramedy. Have you seen the way this man kisses in that movie? It’s the only time I’ve ever been envious of Jennifer Garner, and I mean that in the nicest way possible.

    I’m not sure I’d ever say no….

  2. T.Fanty says:

    Oh, I so would. I still have a crush on him from Go, and Justified hasn’t slowed my momentum.

  3. Anon says:

    When I get sick and tired of all the nitpicking about people’s looks and the constant “Would you hit it?” i go elsewhere and read things where people react normally, instead of like teenage girls.

  4. Miss so and so says:

    Come here honey and let me wash your hair and .. other things….

  5. lucy2 says:

    No is not an option, always yes.
    The hair is bad, but it’s all for the role, and he has been really amazing this season.
    I am also in the Walton/Boyd camp, but I see no reason a girl can’t love both.

  6. Kaye says:

    Who’s actually looking at his hair!?!?

  7. Holly says:

    I can’t recall if he was wearing a hat, but there’s one hell of a shirtless scene in 1 episode, I think season 1…? when Art/Nick Searcy comes to his motel room (and he’s either got Ava or Winona in there) to send him out on a job. He shuffles out to avoid letting Art in and is just leaning against the doorway with his jeans undone (and maybe the hat!), and it is everything! Might be the episode where Buster Bluth is the Art Dealer…

  8. Mom2two says:

    Oh yeah, I would. MIght not be my favorite hair style of his but he seems like a nice, down to earth guy. And he is a looker!

  9. Lee says:

    Yes, no question. Waiting for the 3rd season of Justified to arrive on Netflix in Canada, and not patiently, either.

  10. i'm french don't kill me says:

    he looks like my daddy when my daddy was younger

  11. Kristi says:

    Every day and twice on Sundays.

  12. Miss Kiki says:

    I totally would, even with the early 90′s Skeet Ulrich hair.

  13. kingkayski says:

    I can’t say no to a man who can kiss like him.i just can’t!

  14. Seagulls says:

    Those are the stumpiest man legs I’ve ever seen! Is it visual trickery, or is he that short legged?

  15. Jenna says:

    Yes. Always yes. I love his swagger too much not to.

  16. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Sexy sexy sexy. Whether sporting a moustache and a cowboy hat, clean cut and pretty boy or grunge-y, you just can’t minimize this man’s hotness.

    LOVE him.

  17. TQB says:

    Is this even a question? I dig the stringy scraggly. In fact, I prefer it to the cleaned up version on Kimmel. I like my Olyphant to look like he doesn’t mind getting messy, if you know what I mean.

  18. Alli says:

    I doth not understand why you even posit this. The longer the mane, the better grip for to pull it with.

  19. annabelle says:

    How is this ever in question?

    Hell yeah is always the answer.

    I fell in love with Todd the Drug Dealer in Go and I haven’t looked back. Scraggly Timothy just takes me right back there.

  20. Melissa C says:

    Uh, YEAH I’d hit that. I’d hit that all day long. I love love love him. And how he keeps his family life private… swoon.

  21. phlyfiremama says:

    Slobber, slobber, drool drool. I have loved him since Bullock on Deadwood!!! These comments make me want to check out his other work as well~

  22. mar says:

    I have always wondered why he is not A list.

  23. Alana Fajina says:

    “stringy & unkempt” HAHAHA, have you seen that super cheesy Hitman movie where he is ‘fake bald’ I’d hit That too, are you kidding?!! *wipes drool* ;) I love men with longer hair.. And beards? Oh my!

  24. NeoCleo says:

    He’s still awesome. What a face. What a body. I don’t care if he wears his hair down to his @ss.

  25. NEENAZEE says:

    Yes, absolutely. And even more so now that I watched that clip from Catch & Release…

  26. NEENAZEE says:

    I still love him best as the crazy pimp in The Girl Next Door…

  27. Renee says:

    No mention of him on Deadwood??? He was sooo crazy but very sexy.

  28. Sarcasmo says:

    Like a house on fire, and until we both dropped from exhaustion!!! ;)

  29. Hautie says:

    Is it wrong to admit I keep Justified saved on my TIVO? So when I need a pick me up, I just turn it on?

    And the thing with Boyd and Raylan… is that they both have slightly pigeon toed walks.

    So it gives then a swagger that is very becoming. Because a big part of their hotness, is how they move.

    If you have not watched the show, it is hard to understand their appeal. You got to see them moving, to really see why all the girls are crazy for them. :)

    Hi, boyfriend!

    Anytime, anywhere, long hair, short hair, whatever. I’d appreciate him bringing Deputy Gutterson along for the ride.

  31. Mami says:

    BEST POST EVER! I’m crushing on him so hard it hurts. Oh Raylan my Raylan!

  32. Meg says:

    i want him even more with the stringy hair-very river phoenix of him

  33. Elena says:

    Also he was smokin’ in sex & the city back in the days. Damn lucky SJP..

  34. Well, my initial response is ‘F..k yeah’ but what annoys one reader amuses me. ‘Would you still hit it?’ makes me smile, perhaps because I’m English and used to polite reserve.

    And particularly in that second pic, the rough edges simply add to his appeal. He can rock a suit too (as in Hitman, even bald he looks good) but I prefer him casual.

    Fun to read.
