Die Hard Wiki

Timothy Olyphant (born May 20, 1968) is an American actor known for his role as main villain Thomas Gabriel in Live Free or Die Hard.


Olyphant is also known for his roles as Seth Bullock in HBO series Deadwood, as Agent 47 in video-game based action movie Hitman and as Raylan Givins in the FX series Justified.

Prior to portraying Thomas Gabriel, Olyphant had previously played a villain a decade earlier as Ghostface impersonator and psychotically greedy fame-seeking murderer Mickey Altieri in the Wes Craven horror film Scream 2 (which coincidentally featured a music score by Marco Beltrami, who later scored Live Free or Die Hard).

He also voiced a Delta Force commando known as Grinch in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, from the popular Call of Duty video game series.
