Timothy Olyphant ("Justified," The Crazies, "Deadwood") has hopped on I Am Number Four after Sharlto Copley had to drop out to promote The A-Team. Which makes sense. You don’t want to leave "Rampage" Jackson alone in a room full of reporters.
Olyphant will be stepping into the role of "guardian and mentor" to Alex Pettyfer‘s alien refugee Number Four. I see no mention of this guardian being kick-ass Southern lawman, but the casting of Timothy Olyphant would suggest that’s the case. Must be a typo. (Variety)
