His world Alien it just got a whole lot sexier with the addition of the actor Timothy Olyphant. The Justified star, who recently dipped his toe into another major universe science fiction as a Cobb Vanth up The Mandalorian and The Boba Fett Bookit has been cast in Noah Hawley's upcoming show on FX which in his universe alien, AliensAlien 3, Alien Resurrection, and Prometheus.

If you're wondering, "WTF are they talking about?" we learned almost two years ago that this show is placed well before any of the Alien movies. It's 70 years in our future and we're exploring Companies που χρησιμοποιούν τεχνητή νοημοσύνη και τεχνολογία για να προσφέρουν αθανασία.

After the completion of his current season Fargo, Hawley began shooting the sci-fi show in Thailand this summer with British actors not affiliated with SAG, which was on strike at the time. Ultimately, though, it had to be called off, and now filming is scheduled to resume in early 2024. Hopefully when that happens, Olyphant isn't just a glorified cameo and we'll see him go down with some acid-drenched killers.
