Justified

Mags & Me

Last night, thanks to the thoughtfulness of my friend & costume designer to the stars Terry Gordon, I attended a Q & A with the cast of Justified at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

The Academy screened the season finale of the second season of Justified. After the screening there was an entertaining Q & A. Among those in attendance were sexy female heartthrob Timothy Oliphant, the amazing Walter Goggins, Graham Yost (the producer of the show) and one of my favorite actresses, the incredible Margo Martindale.

After the Q & A I was eager to meet Margo. I consider her Mags Bennett character one of the greatest screen villains ever created. She surprised me when she told me her first feature film was The Rocketeer. I surprised her when I revealed that The Rocketeer was created in my studio (by Dave Stevens, of course). Margo was the most illuminating person at the Q & A. I learned some new insights into acting from her entertaining answers.

Margo just got her own series. I can’t wait to see it! I’m sure she’ll be fantastic.

I love living in Los Angeles! Stuff like this happens all the time.

    I don’t know who’s more jealous – me because you got to meet Mags or my wife because you met Raylan.

    I thought it would have been thoughtful for the management to have handed out drool cups to the women before they entered the theater. I haven’t seen such a universal response by women to a guy like this in a very long time.

    Timothy didn’t say much (I had the feeling he didn’t want to be there) but every time he smiled it lit up the room.

    Ken and I love that show! Can’t wait to see what Margo does with her new series. We were first amazed by her in The Riches, another F/X series. You have such a cool life, Bill!
