The 25 Best Gunfighters in TV and Movie History

11. Raylan Givens

Appears In: Justified (2010-Present)
Portrayed By: Timothy Olyphant

Raylan Givens probably already made this list in his head. When you revisit old westerns from TV and film you realize that Givens is almost playing a role himself, some self-styled combination of all the duellists and lawmen he watched on TV growing up. In an America where the Old West is settled, Givens has to turn to Appalachia to practice his old-school style of hard justice.

We've loved watching Givens try to play the old-fashioned sheriff in a new world of bureaucracy and due process, and look forward to future seasons of Justified, especially if they can find more villains as compelling as Mags Bennett (Margo Martindale) and Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins). In honor of Givens' much anticipated return to gunfighting, get stoked with this cut of his gunplay from the first two seasons.
