Known mostly for his roles in Deadwood, Justified, and a rather dark, creepy drug dealer in Go, it’s fair to say that Timothy Olyphant hasn’t really played a light character with the exception of maybe The Office.
Well, it doesn’t get much lighter than playing a professional skateboarder who almost runs over Mindy Kaling in The Mindy Project. He then asks her out after such an affront, in case you were wondering.
In case you’re wondering what a man in his forties is still doing as a professional skateboarder, those are Justified questions, not Mindy questions. Mindy questions are things like, “How good does he look at 45? Heavens, GURL.”
Or something like that. I really don’t know what questions are apropos when watching The Mindy Project.
