Walton Goggins has made quite a name for himself on the small screen, leaving an indelible, villainous mark as corrupt La cop and livewire Shane Vendrell in The Shield, and currently as U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens’ complex and contradictory nemeses in Justified, Boyd Crowder.
A much-needed breath of fresh air in both 2010’s bloated Predators and the following year’s sci-fi western mash-up Cowboys and Aliens, his cinematic career is now firmly on the ascendent, thanks to parts in Steven Spielberg’s upcoming biopic Lincoln and Quentin Tarantino’s much-anticipated Blaxploitation-infused western, Django Unchained.
We recently had the opportunity to chat the great man himself about the latter.
HeyUGuys: How did you become involved in the film?
Walton Goggins: Quentin and I meet through a mutual friend at a barbecue, who set it up specifically to put the two of us together. We had a nice long conversation about Django, »
