FANBOLT: Interview: Elmore Leonard From 'Justified'

by TVBrittanyF on January 29, 2011

As '[Justified' returns for its second season on February 9, I sat down with the man we owe it all to - legendary novelist Elmore Leonard - to talk about one of the best dramas on television, how it got to be that way, and the already much-anticipated next literary adventure of Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens...

... Q: We heard at Justified's TCA panel that the show inspired you to pen a new Raylan Givens novel for next year. It's been ten years since you wrote "Fire In The Hole." What was it like picking up the character after so long?

EL: He's easy, because I just know him. I've written so many Westerns - he could fit into any one of those. I'm using the same rhythm that I write everything in. For the most part, I'm writing about cops and robbers. I try and make them different; I try to give everybody a sense of humor, of not saying everything straight, to make them interesting. I just get a feel for the characters. I know them.

Q: Can you give us an idea of what we can expect from the new novel? Is it going to reflect a little more of the TV series?

EL: I'm writing [it] in three parts. In the very first scene, they go into a motel to arrest somebody for marijuana and he's in the bathtub naked with a bandage on his stomach. Raylan doesn't know what it is. One of the other Marshals says, "Oh, he's had his kidney removed." They're stealing kidneys...

TV GUIDE - Matt's TV Week in Review

Jan 28, 2011
by Matt Roush

... FRIDAY NIGHT DELIGHTS: Let's hope Fringe continues its winning ways on Friday nights. The first episode back was a great emotional workout for John Noble's Walter Bishop, manipulated by the Observers to put Peter at risk to show them that he would be willing to let his son die — again — "when the time comes." How ominous. (Fringe catches another break this week, because of CW's last-minute decision to postpone the return of Supernatural and Smallville for a week, a ripple effect from major-market pre-emptions of Thursday night's shows.) ...

TV GUIDE: Matt's TV Week in Review

Jan 28, 2011
by Matt Roush

Much of the TV landscape is, and has always been, devoted to comfort-food formula. Some of us, though, live for those moments when a show breaks formula and delivers the unexpected. This week gave us some excellent examples of that in the most popular formula of the moment: the crime/police drama.

... We get a chemistry lesson on ABC's Castle, as a deadly new twist in the cold case of Beckett's murdered mother forces Beckett and especially Castle to take a long, hard look at what their partnership is all about. Leading, naturally, to a long, hard kiss. Which isn't real, except it's really real. In a rare somber moment early on, mama Martha advises Castle, "You can't charm your way out of a bullet. Be honest with yourself about why you're doing this." Castle admits, "It's not about the books anymore." Unless we're talking The Book of Love, I suppose. When Beckett is kicked off the case, and Castle joins her to go rogue, he cockily boasts, "Fear does not exist in this dojo." (This is why we love this guy.) Beckett tells the would-be Karate Kid that this isn't his fight, but he argues, "I don't hang around you just to annoy you." Which is when we get to the meat of the matter: "Then why do you keep coming back, Rick?" When Beckett calls Castle anything but Castle, that gets our attention. As does the long, lingering smooch they perform in front of the bad guys who've taken Esposito and Ryan prisoner. It's a mock-drunken decoy kiss that turns into something more when Beckett initiates a second round, and there is serious heat here than has nothing to do with Nikki Heat. Castle is taken aback, but not so flustered that he can't save the day in the violent showdown that ensues. More of this, please...
