'Justified' actor Nick Searcy asked us not to call him a 'Teabagger,' 'Ultra-Con,' or 'Bigot' in this headline

This is an actual e-mail sequence that we just had with Nick Searcy, a longtime character actor in Hollywood who is currently playing Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal Art Mullen in Justified. Nick has been in movies (Fried Green Tomatoes, Castaway) and plenty of television series (Easy Money, Seven Days).

We reached out to him once we noticed what a wild Twitter feed Nick has. Below, we've collected some highlights just from the last couple of days, where he calls atheists "pussies" and generally talks like your typical unhinged Internet troll, rather than a Peabody Award-winning actor. But hey, he was endorsed by Rush Limbaugh last year, so he has that going for him.

We thought, since he was so outspoken and rained down invective on people who disagreed with him on Twitter, that Nick might be up for an interview...

RAW: Hey, Nick. I just noticed what a no-holds-barred Twitter feed you have. What a riot. I'd love to do a short piece about you. Got time for a chat?

SEARCY: Frankly, I don't think I trust your website, after looking at it.

RAW: I'm going to put up some of your tweets and let them speak for themselves. I was just curious about what it's like to be an outspoken conservative in Hollywood. It would be great to have your actual response to that.

SEARCY: Are you going to headline it "Teabagger" or "Ultra-con" or "Bigot"?

RAW: How would you describe yourself in your own words?

SEARCY: Not playing. Go back to your hit pieces on Christianity and decent Americans who disagree with you.

Ah well. That's disappointing. We'll let Nick speak for himself in a sampling of his tweets from yesterday and today...

And here's a fun thing Nick did about working out. He's a card.
