Patton Oswalt Is Going To Be On ‘Justified’

This news is like Alison Brie agreeing to be on Game of Thrones, like Louis C.K. deciding to give a meth a shot on Breaking Bad, like Tom Waits and a resurrected Biggie collaborating with a verse from Bill Murray, like honey mustard replacing ketchup as the main condiment at your favorite restaurant, like the casts of Anger Management and Two and a Half Men being buried in the same ironic avalanche of poop, like a corgi breeding with a bunny to make a borgi: Patton Oswalt will have a recurring role in the upcoming season of Justified.

Patton Oswalt is set to pop up on one of TV’s acclaimed dramas, with a recurring role in Justified‘s Season 4.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Oswalt will appear on the FX series as Bob Sweeney, a local constable who went to high school with Raylan and has been hired by the lawman to watch Arlo’s house.

Lest anyone suspect Oswalt is dialing it down completely for this visit to Harlan County, know that Bob has a single football tale he tells over and over from his high school glory days, Al Bundy-style, while a bid to help Raylan capture a bail jumper are humorous — and maybe even successful!

This news is like Patton Oswalt on Justified as a constable whose character description includes the phrase “Al Bundy-style,” is the way we’re going to describe two amazing things coming together from now on.
