Timothy Olyphant might be chasing down the Crowder gang now as badass lawman Raylan Givens, but that role didn’t find him easily. Olyphant worked his way up through Hollywood, playing lots of dirtbags and hapless romantics over the years — in addition to honing his gunslinger chops on Deadwood, of course.

I guess you could say that Olyphant’s 46th birthday is a “justified” reason — no more puns, I promise — to look back at some of his earlier roles. Deadwood aside, here are 20 times you’ve probably seen real-life Raylan Givens and didn’t even realize it. It all started with a computer geek named “Scooby.”
