A Cop in a Cowboy Hat: Timothy Olyphant, a Postmodern Eastwood in Justified

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    This chapter explores the strong relationship of the TV series 'Justified' with the Western genre, and the resemblance of star Timothy Olyphant to the iconic actor and director, Clint Eastwood. It argues that a media-related nostalgia is encouraged in the viewer of Justified by applying a range of concepts from postmodern theory and views this as one of the pleasures offered by popular culture.
