Elmore Leonard: Justified Gets It Just Right

Elmore Leonard doesn't waste words on the page or in conversation.

So when asked what he thinks of Justified, the FX series based on one of his characters, anachronistic U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, the prolific author's response is simple and direct: "I like it a lot."

6 Reasons you should be watching Justified

For Leonard, whose 43 novels and countless short stories have inspired decades of TV and movie adaptations, dialogue has always been the key to the 84-year-old writer's success. And Leonard thinks that's one of the reasons Justified works.

"When he delivered the lines, the ones that I wrote, they were just the way I heard them when I wrote them," Leonard says of series star Timothy Olyphant. "That doesn't happen very much. They're sticking right to my sound, and I think it's really good."

Family, Friends Say Goodbye to Paul Newman

Paul Newman's family and friends say goodbye to the screen legend, businessman and philanthropist:"Paul Newman played many unforgettable roles. But the ones for which he was proudest never had top billing on the marquee. Devoted husband. Loving father. Adoring grandfather. Dedicated philanthropist," Newman's three daughters Elinor, Melissa and Claire, whose mother is Oscar-winning actress Joanne Woodward, said in a statement."Always and to the end, Dad was incredibly grateful for his good fortune. In his own words: 'It's been a privilege to be here.' He will be profoundly missed by those whose lives he touched, but he leaves us with extraordinary inspiration to draw upon. During this difficult time, we ask for privacy for our family," Newman's family said. "There is a point where feelings go beyond words," Robert Redford told ET. "I have lost a real friend. My life — and this country — is better for his being in it.""I was blessed to have known him. The world is better bec... read more

Paul Newman, Screen Legend, Dies at 83

Paul Newman, the screen legend whose rebellious roles, steely delivery, and radiant blue eyes made him a star across seven decades, has died. He was 83. Newman was surrounded by his family and close friends when he died Friday at his farmhouse near Westport, Conn., following a long battle with cancer, publicist Jeff Sanderson said. Newman's career on the stage, screen and television included nine Oscar nominations and a win for The Color of Money. After establishing himself as one of his generation's greatest leading men, he turned to other interests, including racing cars and philanthropy. Newman was one of the few actors who remained in demand from the 1950s until the 2000s, when he filmed his final onscreen role, playing a conflicted mob boss in Road to Perdition. His most famous line may have been in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, when Robert Redford's Sundance Kid tells Newman's Cassidy he won't jump hundreds of feet into a river to escape gunfighters — because he can... read more

Paul Newman Pal Denies Cancer Quote; AP Stands Firm

In recent days, several media outlets reported that Paul Newman, 83, has been diagnosed with lung cancer and is receiving outpatient treatment at a hospital in New York. On Wednesday, the AP quoted writer A.E. Hotchner, a longtime business partner and neighbor of Newman's, as saying the actor told him about having the disease some 18 months ago: "I know that it's a form of cancer. And he's dealing with it."Hotchner has since denied making that statement, claiming he has "no knowledge of any diagnosis," but the AP is standing by its story.Last month, Newman bowed out of directorial duties for a production of Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men, citing health reasons that were not specified. Newman responded to previous reports on the cancer with a cryptic, non-confirming message delivered by his spokesman: "Newman says he's doing nicely." — Anna DimondUse our Online Video Guide to see some of Newman's stellar performances. read more
