In a teleconference Q&A session at the beginning of this first season of FX’s Justified [Tuesdays, 10/9C], I had the opportunity to ask Walton Goggins, who plays Boyd Crowder, a couple of questions and found him to be articulate and witty. As a result, I requested an opportunity for a bit of one-on-one time with Goggins and the result was a lot of fun.
I’ve just finished screening the episodes that FX sent out, so I’m not the most prepared I’ve ever been.
Walton Goggins: Do you have a timeline? Do you need to do this today?
I finished the last ep about five minutes ago.
Goggins: And that would be?
The Hammer. The one with the combustible meth lab. So, yeah, I think I’m good. Let’s just do this while the eps are fresh in my mind.
Goggins: What did you think about the episode?
I thought it was great – but first let me congratulate you on becoming a series regular for season two.
Goggins: Thank you.Yeah, it’s very exciting!
When did you find out?
Goggins: We had been talking about it for a while, during the season, but I couldn’t commit because I was in negotiations for a few other things – and it came back around to my realizing that I’m on a show that I absolutely love doing; a character that challenges me, by the minute, on a network that is my home as an artist in a lot of ways. So it just made sense all the way around.
When we talked as part of the Q&A at the beginning of the season, you talked about how the pilot was shot with Boyd dying – how testing suggested that Boyd was a character who should be around – and you mentioned Timothy Olyphant‘s suggestion that Boyd would be too smart to be a racist @$$hole.
Goggins: Well, actually, I did not want to do Boyd as a racist @$$hole. Because I don’t believe that Boyd necessarily believes everything that he’s saying. Then Tim came up with the line – which was so wonderful – “I don’t believe that you believe anything you’re saying. I just think you like to blow $#!+ up.” Continue reading
*Spoilers for those who haven’t seen the finale.
Few were left standing at the end of Justified’s bloody first-season finale, but among the survivors was Walton Goggins’ Boyd Crowder, a character who has escaped death twice this season.
In the finale, Boyd, who was originally intended to die in the pilot, survived a shootout between his friend/nemesis Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) and two Miami drug-cartel assassins. Even though Raylan spent much of the second half of the season trying to put Boyd back in jail after he blew up a meth lab, he still lets Boyd give chase to an assassin instead of bringing him in.
“We hadn’t planned that the arc would be about Raylan and Boyd, but that became apparent when we decided to keep Boyd alive,” creator and executive producer Graham Yost tells TVGuide.com. “We knew the bad relationship would help form the spine of the season. Heading into the finale we knew we wanted to both resolve some things, get some answers, and yet throw open more questions.
“The big question is, ‘What’s going to happen with Boyd, what’s Raylan going to do?'” Yost continues. “He’s implicated in the murder of a confidential informant from the meth lab, but he has been, in his strange Boyd way, fighting a good fight to try to stop his father from bringing evil to Harlan. So what does Raylan do?”
In truth, Raylan could ask himself that question about many of his relationships. Also in the finale, Raylan learned that his ex-wife, Winona (Natalie Zea), had kicked her new husband out of the house, but Raylan still went to great lengths to protect current squeeze Ava (Joelle Carter).

Seriously, HUMONGOUS SPOILER ALERT!
Still here? Then you already know who bit the dust last night — Boyd Crowder’s (Walton Goggins) wily papa Bo (M.C. Gainey). And you saw how Boyd, the show’s resident scene stealer, reacted to Bo’s brutal murder of Boyd’s religious cohorts, which seemed to prove that Boyd had been sincere about the born-again proclamation he sprung on Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) and the rest of Harlan County’s denizens after his brief incarceration earlier in the season.
Goggins, who, we have to reiterate, so deserves an Emmy nod for his ‘Justified’ role (and will be among the contenders for a nomination in the Guest Actor in a Drama category … he becomes a series regular in season 2), talked to TV Squad before the finale, and shared his thoughts on Bo’s death, Boyd finding — and maybe losing? — his religion and where his recent losses might lead him in season 2.
So, Bo’s dead, and not by Boyd’s hand …
How crazy was that? And after the beating [that Bo ordered Crowder cousin Johnny to administer to Boyd]. Did that make you feel for Boyd?
Oh yeah, definitely. But I felt for Boyd several times throughout the season. The biggest was when he went back to camp and found his men dead, hanging from the trees. His reaction, and that he cut them down and buried each one of them … you could see he was crushed. And it was the first definite bit of evidence as to what his motivations really are. He cared about those men, and didn’t take lightly that they had pledged their loyalty and trust to him.
Exactly! That is exactly it. It’s between that moment, and a question that Boyd asks a few scenes later, when he says to Raylan, ‘Do you believe in God?’ He asks Raylan that question. And I think that’s the first question that Boyd asks over the course of the entire season — ever — maybe ever in his life — where he doesn’t know the answer to it. He genuinely doesn’t know. And so, for me, that was a clear indication of where his heart was along this whole first season.
Now that his father is dead, will it be freeing for Boyd, or will he be in even more turmoil, trying to figure out who he is without this imposing figure there?
I think he has to figure out who he is without his father’s presence there, both physically and metaphysically. Both his fathers, I think, are dead in his eyes … one being his earthly father, and the other being his spiritual father. I don’t know where this guy goes from here.
A person who has a world view like Boyd Crowder’s … I don’t know what they do when their foundation — a person whose foundation is rarely, if ever, rocked — gets rocked. It may change, but he’s able to transfer this weighty foundation … he’s always grounded in some truth or another that he’s able to live out, that gives him a purpose for living. And now, all of that’s been taken away. Everything has been taken away.
I suppose he will continue his journey. I don’t know if he’s going to become a Buddhist or [laughs], you know, if he will go back into a life of crime, or if he will be against all things spiritual. I don’t know if he will give up his faith in spirituality or humanity … I just don’t know what will happen with this guy. That’s what so interesting … all these unanswered questions, and it could go anywhere.
Have you started work at all on season 2?
No, no we haven’t. We’ve had some initial discussions about it, but we’re all just kind of letting [the first season] settle and see how it plays out.
Boyd is a leader, too, so it’s tough to imagine he’ll be kept down, however he decides to proceed next season.
Boyd is a natural-born leader. I think his actions, in many ways, were the same. He was engaging in the same kind of behavior, post-incarceration, but his motivations for doing it were different. And when a man feels righteous, there is no limit to what he is capable of doing. Now, all that’s been taken away from him. So, I guess I would end this interview with a big question mark. [Laughs]
