Last December, when director Nimród Antal’s Predators was filming at Robert Rodriguez’ Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas, I got to visit the set along with a few other online journalists. As I said in my set report, I was very impressed with what they showed us and think fans of the franchise are finally going to get another great Predator movie.
When we were on set, we got to speak with most of the cast and after the jump is the interview we did with Walton Goggins. During the interview he talks about his character Stans and why he’s obsessed with the number 38 (it’s how many people he’s killed), what it’s like to walk around in real life with a ton of fake tattoos, his thoughts on how The Shield ended, how he got involved in Justified, and a lot more.

A dynamic if occasionally confusing confectionary of Clint Eastwood, David Lynch, John Hughes and George Miller, The Wraith remains one of the definitive guilty pleasures of 80’s sci-fi horror and a perennial favorite for those nostalgia nights in the company of a few select friends, a six-pack of beers and a bag of chips. In spite of its dated synth/soft rock score, awkward dialogue, bewildering concepts and – for the most part – unsympathetic teenage ciphers, it does retain a sleek brio and self-confidence that continue to hold the attention.
The literal borrowings from High Plains Drifter, Shane, The Road Warrior and The Thing are often distracting, but if its influences are plain to see, less visible to the casual viewer are the pain and tragedy involved in its troubled production. With the recent special edition DVD release of The Wraith (review here) from Lionsgate and the 25th anniversary of the film fast approaching, »

Walton Goggins talks about his role as Boyd Crowder in the new FX series
Actor Walton Goggins enjoyed much success on the cable network FX with his seven-season run as Shane Vendrell on the groundbreaking cop series The Shield, which ended its run in 2008. Now Goggins is back on the network with its brand new series Justified, which makes its debut tonight, Tuesday, March 16 at 10 Pm Et on FX. Goggins recently held a conference call to discuss his role as Boyd Crowder on the series and here's what he had to say.
I so enjoy your take on bad boys. You have so much fun with this character. It's hard not to like "Boyd" even though he's vile, and I was wondering if you could talk about how you see him, his character and share with us your interpretation of "Boyd Crowder."
