Based on the works of crime novelist Elmore Leonard and developed for television by showrunner Graham Yost, the FX drama series Justified is currently nearing the end of Season 5, which is also its penultimate season now that its been announced that the series will be ending with six seasons. This season, U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) has had to face the deadly and dangerous Crowe family while Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) struggles to free his imprisoned fiancée Ava (Joelle Carter), as his Dixie mafia partner Wynn Duffy (Jere Burns) grows increasingly impatient with him.
During this recent interview to promote his arc on the show this season, actor Michael Rapaport, who plays Darryl Crowe Jr., talked about how much fun it’s been to be a part of this show, what originally drew him to the role, how Darryl turns a blind eye to his family, much to his own detriment, what he’s enjoyed most about playing this character, the biggest challenges, working with Walton Goggins, his favorite Darryl and Boyd moment, why he’s cool with it, if Darryl doesn’t make it through the end of the season, what drives him as an actor, and the projects he’s been involved with that mean the most to him. Check out what he had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.
