After nearly 15 years of marriage, Adam Arkin's wife has filed for divorce, TMZ.com reports.
In the filing...
Timothy Olyphant, Erica Tazel
Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens' signature Stetson isn't the only hat Timothy Olyphant wears on the Justified set in Santa Clarita, California. He's got his proverbial producer's cap on as he peers at a monitor and shakes his head.
If "Slaughterhouse" is what you're going to call your season finale, after building up to a major bloody showdown all season, you'd better be able to justify it. Thankfully, we're talking FX's Justified here, and when does it ever not live up to expectations?
Even before he completely went off the rails ...
There's music that sticks with you — like Megan's can't-get-it-out-of-your-head "Zou Bisou Bisou" birthday party bump and grind from Mad Men — and music you can't wait to forget: as in whatever the hell Katharine McPhee was screaming on that revolving mattress-prison during the ambush production number on Smash's worst episode to date.
Which seems an appropriate way to begin our medley of some of the week's notable hits and misses.
Adam Arkin just can't quit Justified.
The actor had previously directed five episodes of FX's Western-themed series and will next guest-star on two episodes this season, EW reports.
G.W. Bailey, Tony Denison and Adam Arkin
I have seldom met anyone who didn't think earning a quick four thousand dollars — cash — for an hour or two of work, wasn't a wonderful idea. Of course, everything must be relative. I wouldn't shill for the tobacco companies, no matter what they paid. But serving a subpoena — a subject that we will visit again this summer under less pleasant circumstances — is just the ticket for Flynn and Provenza, who rope the erstwhile civilian tech, Buzz Watson, into their scheme by promising him a third of their take: two hundred dollars. For those who have a bit of trouble with division, Lts. Flynn and Provenza may have misrepresented their fee to the gullible Buzz. On the other hand, the love of money can do strange things to people.
For regular watchers, this is our seasonal Flynn and Provenza episode...

The Closer promotes Mary McDonnell for final season
Arkin will play Steven Hirschbaum, a Bernie Madoff-like businessman who is convicted in a massive federal fraud trial and is being sued by the former employees and investors from whom he stole.

Cheers to Adam Arkin for becoming one of TV's highest-caliber directors.

The veteran actor (Northern Exposure, Chicago Hope), who still does stellar guest shots on shows like The Chicago Code and Sons of Anarchy, has quietly emerged as one of the small screen's most reliable helmers. At FX, he's practically a house director, having shot episodes of The Riches, Dirt, SOA and Terriers. But his finest behind-the-camera work has been on Justified, and he outdid himself with this week's installment, "Reckoning."
The Chicago Code
The Chicago Code's Teresa Colvin (Jennifer Beals) has had the support of her fellow police officers in her fight to rid the city of corruption... until now.
The Chicago Code's Jennifer Beals: Superwoman hasn't come to Chicago
"There is the old guard who does things the old way, the corrupt way, and that's not good enough anymore," Beals tells TVGuide.com. "She has to raise the moral standard in her own department. There are people who understand what she's trying to do and a lot of very powerful people who don't and are trying to take her down."
