FX’s hit drama, Justified, is starting its fifth season and Raylan has some new rivals to deal with!
In season five, U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) heads down to Florida to confront the Crowe crime family as they plan to settle in his hometown of Harlan, Kentucky and set up their drug-dealing organization. Meanwhile, Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) has to free his fiancée Ava (Joelle Carter) from prison while partnering up with Wynn Duffy (Jere Burns) of the Dixie Mafia.
You’ll see the return of your favorite characters and also several new stars coming along for the ride. Michael Rapaport (My Name Is Earl, Prison Break) plays Daryl Crowe Jr, the big-bad leader of the Crowe crime family while Edi Gathegi (Twilight) plays one of the Crowe’s henchmen, Jean Baptiste. Actress Amy Smart (Shameless) steps in as Allison Brander, a possible love interest of Raylan, and funnymen Will Sasso (MADtv) and David Koechner (Anchorman 2) will also be making appearances, not to mention several more familiar names.
