Loved the series. Was cut short due to cost. The movie is bringing everyone back to finish the story.

I'm surprised more people aren't into this one. Deadwood is up there with the all-time greatest series.

This might be the best interview I've ever read/seen/heard from an actor.

Olyphant is so honest and candid. I encourage everyone to read it.

Here's a great exchange

Quote:

I've heard many conflicting accounts of the cancellation over the years, including one that pinned it to a panic that ensued after you bought a new house. Care to clarify?

I'll tell you my version, and I already said this earlier: I fully understand that my memory of how it happened may not be how it happened, even for me. This is a story I've told over the years and every time you tell it, it changes. And let me also preface this with, I've never been one to let truth get in the way of a good story. So, if you are holding onto facts and you're going to call me on these facts, go **** yourself.

Sure.

OK. Fair enough. Here is what I remember. First of all, Ian and I in Season Three were renegotiating our deal. We were getting ready to start the season and our deals had not been completed. At the time, the late, great James Gandolfini, God rest his soul, had been in the papers quite a bit for refusing to go back to work. Well, Mr. McShane and I didn't want to be those guys, so we're like, "We'll go back to work in good faith, and we'll work this out as we go." As I recall, we must have shot seven, eight episodes at least, before I remember getting the call that we had come to a new understanding. And the two of us got a lovely raise and back pay for all the episodes we had already shot. I say that only because when I did go buy a house, I felt confident that my conservative estimate was, "Only count on one more season, because anything more than that, even though they've just given us this big raise, you never know." See how funny it sounds now? So, yeah, I went and bought a house. I think a lot of cast members bought houses that year. Why would they give us a raise if they were going to turn around [and cancel it]? I wonder if the HBO people have an understanding that they gave Ian and I a big raise when obviously the show was going to blow up. They would never even have had those negotiations. It's hysterical to think how backward-ass that situation was. So anyway, I bought a house, and yes, I don't think I had been in the house but a few days when Mr. Milch called me in the morning and said, "Bad news, the show is over." And I said, "Really?" He said, "Yeah." And I told him he should come over and see the house before I sell it.


Now, as I understand it from others, no one else had been informed of that. So my then calling my rep to say, "Hey, the show has been canceled," led to a series of phone calls. It was a bit of a grass fire, if you will, that became difficult for the two sides to then walk back. In fact, the show was not over at all, but that by the time that spread around, no one wanted to back down from it. And so, it just became fact.

Did you wind up selling the house?

No. I'm a glass-half-full type of mother****er, and I said to myself, "Well, thank God I didn't know they were going to cancel the show. I would never have bought this house." And let me put this under the list of why these people owe me. What we have to thank for this is the villain in [Live Free or] Die Hard and a ****ing bald head in Bulgaria shooting Hitman. That's what that phone call led to. "How about the villain of Die Hard?" I said, "Sure." And they're like, "Do you want to read the script?" I said, " I get it. I'm in. I just bought a house. Did you not hear? They just canceled my ****ing show. Yes, I'll do it." "What about this video game adaptation?" "Yes to that too. I'm in. I've got to make up some TV money." You know what, though? Those experiences were equally valuable. Oddly enough, those kinds of experiences, perhaps arguably more valuable than these. You know? Find yourself bald in Bulgaria doing some pile of ****, that will get you up a little earlier in the morning and make you work a little harder.

If you loved this you'll love this episode of Dinner for Five back in 2004 right after Deadwood first came out.

Although Jon Favreau as the host can come off as a pretentious d-bag (especially chomping his cigar) the show was a great inside look at Hollywood and this one was one of my favorites. The five were Timothy Olyphant, David Milch, Jay Mohr, and Michael Rappaport (and of course Favreau as the host).

Milch is especially funny and candid. Excuse the picture quality and close-ups, not sure why they couldn't get the original format but definitely worth 30-40 minutes of your time:

I will read, watch or listen to anything involving Timothy Olyphant. He is just so entertaining.

I'm re-watching the first season of Deadwood in anticipation of the movie. It's even better than I remembered. And that story arc with the Reverend Smith is without a doubt the saddest thing I've ever seen on TV.

I've been watching this show for the first time over the last couple months and am down to the last episode before the movie. Really glad it's moving forward after the negative comments I've read concerning the ending. It's been a real pleasure, easily one of the most enjoyable shows I've watched.

About the lack of a proper ending, I'm sure.

Tied up the plot better but overall predictable and not as well written as the series.

I absolutely loved it. 13 years waiting for closure and I feel like they stuck the landing. Yes, it was beat for beat what you expected. But they executed it so well. If we aren't going to get a full season, you can't ask for much more than what we got tonight.

Because they wouldn't let Milch rewrite on the fly like he did during the show run

It wasn't the greatest thing ever broadcast but they did a damn good job of hitting most of the beats of the original show.

Now after the end of GOT and this Deadwood movie I can say I have officially reached the point of wondering why I should keep paying for HBO.
