    From Timothy Olyphant's first screen appearances, such as his two minute bit in First Wives Club, to Nicko, whose presence at times dwarfed the island in Perfect Getaway, he has been a force to be reckoned with.

    Born in Hawaii, Timothy was raised in Modesto California. He is of Scottish descent. His mother, Katherine, and his father Bevan. He has an older brother, Andy Olyphant, who is in A&R for Warner Brother Records, and a cousin, Matthew Olyphant, who was the lead singer for the punk rock group, Fetish, and is also an artist. Timothy quickly became Modesto, California's favorite son, competing as a pro swimmer and excelling at drawing. It was by chance that he enrolled in an acting course as an elective and decided to pursue an acting career. He took his family and headed to New York City, where he studied the craft and began auditioning for roles.From the beginning he tried to choose diversified roles and take chances with every genre and always approached everything he did with commitment, humor and grace.

    Timothy is married to his college sweetheart, Alexis Knief, and together they raise three children, one son and two daughters in California. He has managed to keep his personal life out of the tabloids. He obviously has his priorities straight, as this is no easy task in Hollywood.

    Careerwise, Timothy dominated the small screen with his riveting portrayal of sheriff Seth Bullock in HBO's hit drama, Deadwood. He now personifies intensity as complex Kentucky Marshal, Raylan Givens, in FX's Justified. On the big screen, in this year's The Crazies, he had the chance to infuse his character with doubts, fears and humaneness in an inhumane situation. Mr. Olyphant proved he could carry a major movie on his talent alone.

    Upcoming is I Am Number Four, a Steven Speilberg sci-if thriller in which Tim provides the adult mentorship, taking a back seat to the teen cast.
