He is mostly known for his television work as Sheriff Seth Bullock in Deadwood, Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens in Justified, and Wes Krulik in Damages.

Olyphant was born in Honolulu, Hawaii to John Vernon Bevan and Katherine Olyphant. His father was a college teacher who worked for a winery. He is a descendent of Cornelius Vanderbilt. Olyphant was raised in Modesto, California, and began competitive swimming at the age of 6. At high school, Olyphant started training seriously under swim coach Darrell Lohrke, who came to Modesto via Arden Hills Swimming and Tennis Club. Olyphant became a nationally ranked swimmer. He was a finalist at the USA Swimming Short Course National Championships in 1986 in the 200 Individual Medley. He graduated from Modesto's Fred C. Beyer High School that year.
Olyphant continued swimming competitively at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, where he studied fine art. He took a beginning acting class as an elective at UC Irvine in order to fulfill the final credits he needed to graduate from USC. Olyphant then decided to move to New York City to study acting rather than pursue a master's degree in fine arts. He took acting classes with William Esper at William Esper Studio for two years, and then started looking for acting work.
