The final season of ‘Justified’ will return in 2015 with a beefed up cast as legendary actor Sam Elliott and Garret Dillahunt join the show…
The man with the best mustache in all of Hollywood aka Sam Elliott will join the final season of ‘Justified’ in a recurring role where he will be playing a big bad returning to his roots.
Elliott will play Markham, a gangster from Kentucky who returns home after making a new life for himself selling marijuana legally in Colorado. He’s returning to the Bluegrass State to reclaim his empire and get back his wife — Katherine Hale — played by Mary Steenburgen. The character was teased towards the end of last season so Elliott’s casting not only signals his arrival, but considering the type of actor they’ve chosen, Markham will play a serious role in the upcoming year.
Also added to the cast on Friday is Garret Dillahunt, who will recur in several episodes playing Walker — a former special ops and combat specialist — who goes to work for a semi-legal businessman as the new head of his security team.
The next season — and final season — of Justified will debut on FX in early 2015.
