Say hello to Raylan Givens.

Played by Timothy Olyphant, he's a Deputy U.S. Marshal. FX describes the character as a "modern-day 19th century-style lawman." His style places a target on his back with his enemies, but also with his bosses.

Givens is based on the popular character created by author Elmore Leonard.

Givens currently lives in Florida, raising his fifteen-year-old daughter, Willa. He and Willa's mother, Winona Hawkins, have parted ways but share custody.
