I have been a fan of Timothy Olyphant ever since his small stint as a drug dealer in the film GO. In the last few years Olyphant has really picked up steam by playing the coolest porn king since Burt Reynolds in Girl Next Door and a rough and tough sheriff in the HBO series Deadwood. This guy can do it all.
Olyphant, Eckhart for Bill
According to Variety, Timothy Olyphant and Aaron Eckhart have been picked up by Gotham-based GreeneStreet Films to star in the indie comedy Bill.
Melissa Wallack (The Dallas Buyers Club) penned the script and will direct the film with her husband, Bernie Goldmann.
Bill revolves around a man (Eckhart) going through a mid-life crisis whose wife has an affair with a local newscaster (Olyphant) that is caught on tape and broadcast over the Internet. The female lead has not yet been cast.
A female lead is expected to be selected soon as Bill is set to begin filming later this month.
Olyphant, who you can still catch on HBO's Deadwood, can also be seen in the upcoming film Catch and Release.
