NYTimes: A Son of the South With Many Accents


Timothy Olyphant may embody the steely-eyed, white-hatted hero on “Justified,” the backwoods crime drama on FX based on stories by Elmore Leonard, but Walton Goggins supplies the show’s tortured soul.

His character, Boyd Crowder, began the series, which returns for its second season on Feb. 9, as a seemingly psychotic white supremacist. But as the show progressed, an apparent spiritual awakening led the character to break with his father, a crime boss, and, in the season finale, save his on-again, off-again adversary, played by Mr. Olyphant, in a climactic shootout.

Mr. Goggins grounded the pulpy twists with an understated portrayal that mixed the series’ florid dialogue with an unhinged ambiguity. Boyd’s motives were never entirely clear, and a character originally presented as a “stereotypical over-the-top redneck racist,” as Mr. Goggins put it, was revealed to be an intelligent manipulator and a cagey counterpoint to the United States marshal Raylan Givens, the protagonist, played by Mr. Olyphant.

The evolution happened on the fly. The original script killed off Boyd in the pilot, and when the producers decided to keep him around, Mr. Goggins helped them take the character beyond a stereotype. “I wasn’t interested in playing that person in the pilot,” he said. “I’m from the South — I’m not going to sell out my own culture for the sake of a television show.” Continue reading

Ask Ausiello: Who is Boyd getting romantic with? Find out!

I for one am very excited, as at the end of last season I suddenly wanted them together. And as Walton said, Boyd is very complex so seeing how he handles a relationship will be very interesting!

Question: Do you have any scoop on Justified? —Veronica
Ausiello: What if I told you that Boyd (Walton Goggins) was going to get romantically involved with his onetime sister-in-law Ava this season? Better yet, what if Goggins told you himself?! “It’s going to be an interesting relationship,” he says. “I talked [to the producers] about how Boyd would approach love, and how different that would be than Raylan. Boyd’s a really deep guy. He’s probably someone who would create a flower out of a napkin or just read poetry for hours.”

“Now he [Boyd] believes in nothing.” says Walton

“Justified” creator Graham Yost said the second season of his show, which is based on an Elmore Leonard short story, will be more serialized and will center on a family feud as well as the idea of second chances.

Character actress Margo Martindale plays Mags Bennett, the matriarch at the center of the family feud between Raylan Givens’ family and hers.

“I’ll be 60 this summer, so it’s great to be able to be a villain at my age,” Martindale said during the panel.

Timothy Olyphant, who plays Raylan and thinks “people are crazy” for naming babies after his character, said that Leonard’s original story and the writers’ scripts make it easy for him to fill his character’s shoes.

“If the writing is good, it just makes your job easier,” he said. “When writing’s not good, it’s harder to memorize. It’s harder to figure out what you’re doing. I find the character rather complicated and quite surprising, and that makes it fun to do.”

This season, Raylan and his ex-wife, played by Natalie Zea, become entangled in an affair. And Boyd Crowder, played by Walton Goggins, struggles with the fact that he no longer believes in God.

“He finds order in the universe when he believes fervently in something, whether it’s Nazism, which is [terrible] or God,” Goggins said. “And now … after going down this road of believing in God in order to make sense out of the universe, now he believes in nothing. That’s really interesting because I don’t know how this guy acts believing in nothing. If you don’t have that kind of rigidity for a character like this, then it’s absolute chaos.”

If you missed the first season of “Justified,” you can catch up with DVDs that go on sale Tuesday.

Fox Movie Channel: In Character with Walton

Here is a great interview with Walton about his character ‘Stans’ from Predators.

Justified coming to DVD, pre-order available!

The DVD currently does not have a release date but Amazon.com is taking pre-orders, so be sure to pre-order yours today! Pre-Order: HERE

Timothy Olyphant (Deadwood) stars as “U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens”, based on the character from the Elmore Leonard novels, in the FX Channel’s Justified. The show’s tenderfoot season aired earlier this year, and now Amazon is taking pre-orders for a release of Justified – The Complete 1st Season on DVD. In addition, the e-tailer is showing that a high-def Blu-ray Disc version seems to be planned as well, although they aren’t taking advance orders just yet. These listings are prior to the official Sony Pictures Home Entertainment announcement for the title, so instead of a street date Amazon merely says “This title has not yet been released. You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives” At least the cost is available for the DVD version of it, however, currently showing $49.95 SRP (you can, of course, guarantee your copy right away at a discounted price, if you order it using the above link). As we said, Amazon isn’t taking pre-orders for the BD version at this time, but they do show package art for that format, as well as the DVD version (both are seen below). There are no other details available so far at Amazon’s entries, but stay tuned and we’ll update you further on this title, just as soon as we find out anything more. Our thanks to longtime reader Kyle Stublen for the heads-up about this!

Ask Ausiello gives us a scoop on season 2 of Justified

Question: I have not seen anything on season 2 of Justified. Got any scoop on that? —Carolyn
Ausiello: Production resumes in mid-October, and newly minted series regular Walton Goggins tells me “the pendulum will swing in a completely different direction for Boyd, and religion may receive his ire. He may become an agnostic vigilante, [but] I won’t say against who.”
