Fantastic casting news today: my longtime love Carla Gugino will join Season 3 of another love of mine, “Justified,” as a woman who shares a past with my other longtime love, Timothy Olyphant.
In Season 3 of the acclaimed drama, Gugino will playa Washington, D.C.-based assistant director of the U.S. Marshals Service who used to work with Raylan back in Miami — and as such shares a history with our favorite trigger-happy lawman.

This makes awesome and wonderful sense. Not only has Gugino starred in another series based on another Elmore Leonard character in the U.S. Marshals (the unfortunately short-lived “Karen Sisco”), but she’s already established on-screen chemistry with Olyphant (banner image). Granted, like everyone else, I’ve never seen their scenes together in Elektra Luxx, but I’ve dreamed about those two having sex often enough that it automatically gets my approval.
I believe this calls for a gratuitous and unnecessary gallery of sexy Carla Gugino pictures. C’mon, you know you wanna click through. Daddy needs the ad dollars.
