JUSTIFIED FX RELEASE: Developed by Graham Yost (Boomtown, Speed) and starring Timothy Olyphant (Damages, Deadwood), Justified is based on the works of crime novelist Elmore Leonard, including Leonard’s short story Fire in the Hole. Fresh off the epic gun battle that concluded season one, season two of Justified finds Bo Crowder dead, and the Crowder criminal grip on Harlan County broken. Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Olyphant) must now face off against the criminal organizations that are moving to fill the void, and finds himself entangled once again with the mercurial Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins). The series co-stars Nick Searcy (CSI) as Givens’ longtime friend and boss ‘Chief Deputy Art Mullen;’ Jacob Pitts (21) as ‘Deputy Marshal Tim Gutterson;’ Erica Tazel (Life) as ‘Deputy Marshal Rachel Brooks;’ Joelle Carter (CSI: Miami) as ‘Ava Crowder;’ Boyd Crowder’s sister-in-law; and Natalie Zea (Hung) as Raylan’s ex-wife ‘Winona Hawkins.’ Walton Goggins (The Shield) also stars as ‘Boyd Crowder.’ Yost (Boomtown, The Pacific, Band of Brothers) wrote the pilot and serves as Executive Producer/Writer on the series. Leonard (Cuba Libre, Rum Punch, Get Shorty) is also an Executive Producer on the series along with Fred Golan (Boomtown, Raines), Sarah Timberman (Kidnapped), Carl Beverly (Kidnapped) and Michael Dinner (Karen Sisco), who directed the pilot episode. Justified is produced by Sony Pictures Television and FX Productions.
I spoke with JOELLE CARTER about her role as “Ava Crowder” in JUSTIFIED. Some of my favorite scenes in JUSTIFIED are when “Ava” and “Boyd” get to interact. It was a pleasure to be able to speak with Joelle about her character. Joelle has been featured in various series and films, a few of which are: “Monk”, “Three Rivers”, “Cold Case”, “CSI: Miami”, “Third Watch”, “American Pie 2”, “High Fidelity” and “Law & Order”. Watch JUSTIFIED every Wednesday night at 10 PM EST only on FX.
