Mary Steenburgen made her first appearance on Fox's "Last Man on Earth" last Sunday night and although her name was fleetingly mentioned in a couple casting story, the Oscar winner has mostly kept mum. "I would give me a B," Steenburgen told me when I asked how well she did at keeping that secret. "I would give me an A if I hadn’t told my family that I was in it, but they kind of would have wondered where I was going every day at 5:00 a.m. So I’ll just give myself a B. I think my closest friends and my family knew what I was up to but I never said anything publicly about it. And I think I followed all the various instructions from my superiors." On thing that isn't a secret -- Sorry for that segue -- is that Steenburgen has been having a »

Happy Thursday, Boys & Girls. As promised, it's time for an all-"Justified" installment of The Firewall & Iceberg Podcast. By now, we've given you all a chance to watch the finale, either live or in the subsequent 24 hours, so you should be ready for a solid 85 minutes of talk about our favorite villains, our favorite episodes, what the future should hold for Timothy Olyphant and more. We cover a lot of ground and yet all I've been doing since we finished recording is thinking about all of the good stuff we didn't get around to discussing, which is probably the mark of a mighty fine TV show. And if you don't watch "Justified"... Well, that's Ok. We already posted a regular podcast on Monday! This should tide you over for a few extra days, since next week's podcast will probably be on Thursday as we talk "Mad Men," the "Americans" finale »

With so many plates still spinning on The Americans, it's almost unfathomable that "I Am Abassin Zadran" is this season's penultimate episode. And yet, I said the exact same thing about Justified, and it managed to not just wrap up a season, but an entire series really well in its finale. So we'll see what happens. There were many swirling subplots to "I Am Abassin Zadran" (including Zadran himself), but the most captivating story continues to belong to Paige. Last season, The Americans incorporated a season-long mystery that connected to the premiere's brutal murders. The revelation that it was surviving son Jared who had actually killed both of his spy parents, Emmett and Leanne, as well as his younger sister Amelia, was horrific on a number of levels. But what it really spoke to were Philip and Elizabeth's deepest fears.

According to Walton Goggins, the tears shed during that scene was real. I'm also glad that Ava, Boyd and Raylan made it out alive. FrozenBarbie: I just knew that was what Boyd was going to say at the end, and it made me tear up. A perfect ending. Couldn't have asked for anything better. Walton Goggins deserves to be nominated, and deserves to win, in my opinion. Sam Elliott and Mary Steenburgen deserve noms in supporting, too. And as long as I'm dreaming, this show also »
“We dug coal together.” - Boyd Crowder Justified has come to an end. Damn. With all of the open-ended plot points left hanging at the end of “Collateral,” this could’ve easily been a 90 minute episode. Instead, Graham Yost and his longtime writers Fred Golan, Dave Andron, and Benjamin Cavell crafted a finale that wrapped up everything early and left plenty of time for a glorious epilogue. The pace of the finale revealed a lot about what has been going on this season as far as Markham goes. He was never meant to be a big baddie – just a side note to Boyd and Raylan’s inevitable showdown. For the moments where he did disturb things in Harlan, Sam Elliot was flawless. His range from being so cool as Raylan sat across the desk from him to putting a gun to Ava’s throat – Christ, Elliot nailed it.

Judging a TV series by its finale is like judging a meal by the dessert course. The right finish can send you out into the night with a song in your heart or leave you with a sour taste in your mouth, but still: It's the meal that matters. I don't know if you could call "Justified's" "The Promise" one of the show's best episodes, but as a series finale, it was just about perfect. Showrunner Graham Yost and co. gave us satisfying but not pat ends to the major characters' stories while avoiding widespread expectations of a bloodbath — expectations that, Yost admitted afterwards, he purposefully did nothing to discourage. Full of simple but resonant moments and plentiful callbacks to the show's rich history, it gave us a sense of finality without slamming the lid shut too tight. Even feeling that "Justfied" was ending at just the right moment, »

Sorry to get your hopes up, but as you can see from the video above, the Justified star is jokingly referring to his failed Iron Man audition a number of years ago (which actually took place on the same day as Robert Downey Jr.'s). It's interesting to wonder "What If?" when it comes to the possibility of Timothy Olyphant playing Iron Man, but with any luck, he'll land a big Marvel or DC Comics role at some point in the very near future. Who would you guys most like to see him as? »
“You're not going to get all sentimental on me, are you?” Art asks his soon-to-be-ex-employee Raylan, in the surprising and delightful finale to Justified. The answer is yes; in fact, the whole episode felt a bit sentimental, as finales often do, but not in a bad way — not at all. Titled “The Promise,” this final chapter was written by Graham Yost, Fred Golan, Dave Andron, and Benjamin Cavell (whew!), and directed by regular helmer Adam Arkin. It was a fitting tribute to Elmore Leonard, who created this world in his novella, Fire in the Hole, nurtured it as an executive producer, and whose own career took him from Westerns to crime thrillers, the twin generic strands of this show’s DNA. Leonard was known for situating eccentric, vibrant characters in a world imagined with such laid-back detail that the bigger emotions just sort of crept up on you, in much »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Jon Cryer, Grace Helbig, and Freida Pinto were on "The Late Late Show with James Corden" Tuesday night. Jon, aka Duckie, did a "Pretty in Pink" routine with James. They recreated his record store dance to Otis Redding's "Try a Little Tenderness," and even took it into the audience. Jimmy Fallon must be biting his fingernails over these fun bits -- especially since "The Tonight Show" is on repeats this week and James is having a blast. Here's the new "Pretty in Pink" dance and the original from the movie: In other "Late Late Show" news, the group talked about Uber. Freida has lived in L.A. for three years now, »

“We dug coal together.” In the pantheon of pairs of characters that worked best together over the course of a television series, you’ll have to put the Justified duo of Raylan Givens and Boyd Crowder right up there. The two achieved a grandeur, almost in spite of the deficiencies that surrounded them. That is to say, Timothy Olyphant, Walton Goggins — whose character was supposed to die in the first season but was brought to life with such authority by the immensely talented Goggins that plans were changed — and a bevy of writers under the deft stewardship of series creator

(Spoiler alert: Please do not read on if you haven’t watched Tuesday’s finale of “Justified”) It’s never easy to say goodbye, even to fictional characters. After six seasons airing on FX, the “Justified” series finale on Tuesday was bitter sweet for many fans. While two characters were literally killed off in the last ever episode, the drama bowed out gracefully overall with Deputy U.S. Marshall Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) choosing to arrest nemesis Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) rather than shooting him.

Justified, Season 6, Episode 13: “The Promise”
Directed by Adam Arkin
Aired Tuesdays at 10pm Et on FX
Midway through “The Promise,” the final episode of Justified, a dog-eared copy of George V. Higgins’ The Friends of Eddie Coyle is passed between Marshals Raylan Givens and Tim Gutterson. While there are stricter parallels to be drawn between the novel, which tells the story of the dwindling fortunes of an aging, low-level hood trying to turn informant (or with the excellent film of the same name, featuring a stellar performance from the legendary Robert Mitchum), the prominent placement of the novel is a nod – one of many in this episode – to a mostly bygone era of genre storytelling, one which placed a premium on character, wit and dialogue above flowery prose or postmodern structural games. “The Promise” shows us the Higgins »

No show wears its love for language and land more proudly than FX's Justified, which ends its six-year run on April 14. Based on a novella by Elmore Leonard and starring squinty-eyed sex symbol Timothy Olyphant, the hillbilly noir never received the critical adulation or the audience one might expect for such a consistently moving and entertaining series. Boasting some of the best writing, acting, directing, and mythologizing anywhere on television, Justified left the innovations and the boundary-pushing to its more self-serious Golden Age cohorts, delving instead into the familial histories and economic dysfunctions that make its setting, Kentucky's Harlan County, such a dangerous place to call home. Justified's soul rests not in its heart, but at i »
FX has produced noisier series over the years that “Justified” has graced its schedule, but none better. The final season has been a particular treat, with terrific cast additions (topped by Sam Elliott and Mary Steenburgen) that augmented the central focus on the trio of Raylan, Boyd and Ava. Expectations were thus high for the series finale, which stayed true to the program’s modern-cowboy ethos as well as the heady mixture of drama, comedy and tension that has always defined the dynamics among its key players.
As usual, this adaptation of an Elmore Leonard story (which included a classy ending-credits thank-you to its late pappy) juggled a multitude of plots, and even by this season’s standards had to hustle to bring resolution to most of them. At its core, though, the entire finishing flurry has been devoted to the determination of U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant »

On the occasion of the series finale of Justified, we gave a holler to the series' executive producer Graham Yost to talk about Harlan County, crime, cowboys, coal mining, Ava, Boyd, Raylan, the eternal flame of Deadwood, the prospect of a Wynn Duffy spinoff, and the late, great Elmore Leonard, of course. It was a good run. We tip our hat and raise our glass in salute. Not apple pie, though — that stuff'll kill you. At last it’s finished, eh? Yes, sir. It’s crazy. What was the last scene that you shot? You know, I’m kind of blanking on it! It was in the drawing shed, it wasn’t Raylan or Boyd — his last day was the Wednesday of that week, Raylan’s last day was the Thursday. So it was just Sam Elliott, Boon, Loretta, and Ava. And we did all the stuff when she makes »

Spoiler Alert: This story contains details of tonight's Justified series finale. After the six-season cat-and-mouse chase between Deputy U.S. Marshall Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) and his longtime black hat nemesis Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins), FX's Justified ended not so much with a bang, but rather a nice bow. The final 17 minutes of the show jumped ahead four years showing us where the series’ prime three characters reside. Boyd is once again behind bars for a… »
Spoiler warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen the “Justified” series finale, “The Promise.”
In what was perhaps the most unexpected twist of “Justified’s” six season run, once the dust had settled on the unpredictable series finale, all of our favorite characters actually succeeded in leaving Harlan alive. Despite the bloodshed and violence that punctuated our core trio’s lives (as is the case with most characters written by Elmore Leonard), all three managed to achieve the closest thing to a happy ending they were ever likely to get, with Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) moving to Florida to be close to his daughter, Willa; Ava (Joelle Carter) making a home for herself and her son Zachariah in California; and Boyd (Walton Goggins) finding some modicum of peace in jail after regaining his faith, despite being left unaware of his son’s existence and being told that Ava had »

[Warning: This post contains spoilers from Justified's series finale.] Justified concluded its six-season run with a subdued series finale Tuesday that may not have have been as deadly as many had come to expect. Although the FX drama regularly featured elaborate and alarming death sequences, only two characters of note ended up being killed off in the show's final hour: Markham (Sam Elliott), who — after taking Ava (Joelle Carter) hostage — was killed by Boyd (Walton Goggins); and Boon (Jonathan Tucker), who was on the losing side of a gun duel with Raylan (Timothy Olyphant). Raylan, however, did have
