Hey guys! Looks like Walton will be a guest on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers next week on September 13th to promote the final season of HBO’s Vice Principals which premieres on September 17th.
Wednesday, September 13: Guests Jeffrey Tambor, Walton Goggins and Action Bronson. Elaine Bradley sits in with the 8G Band.
The Sundance Institute’s Next Fest kicked off on August 10th at The Theatre at Ace Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles with the presentation of the vanguard leadership award to lauded filmmaker Quentin Tarantino, along with a 35 mm 25th anniversary screening of his film “Reservoir Dogs.”
Clad in his trademark brown leather jacket, Tarantino accepted the award to a packed house and received a standing ovation as he took the stage. True to his gregarious self, Tarantino treated the crowd to a near-15-minute acceptance speech and brought actors Tim Roth and Michael Madsen, who both starred in “Reservoir Dogs” and “The Hateful Eight,” on stage. He also saluted producers Monte Hellman, Richard Gladstein, and Ronna B. Wallace, who were in the audience, and gave a shout-out to Los Angeles. “I’m an L.A. boy, I mean I was born in Tennessee, but I moved at like two, so give me a f—ing break,” he said. “There are New York crime films, and other crime films, but (‘Reservoir Dogs’) is a Los Angeles crime film.”
Tarantino was so animated that at one point midway through his speech, he accidentally knocked the vanguard award off the podium. Thankfully, he caught it, the audience laughing along with him, and relocated it to his side. Finally, he yelled, “On with the show!” and the screening commenced.
Tarantino has been nominated for five Academy Awards and won two, the first in 1995 for best original screenplay for “Pulp Fiction,” and the same award in 2013 for “Django Unchained.”
Get ready for the final semester. Danny McBride and Walton Goggins star in Vice Principals Season Two — premiering September 17th on HBO
While it was previously announced the Walton Goggins would be appearing in Ant-Man and the Wasp, it was largely thought he’d play a character such as Crossfire or Taskmaster but at tonight’s panel, he was confirmed to be playing a character by the name of Sonny Burch.
He has traditionally been a character rooted in Iron Man lore but now that Cross Technologies itself is based within the Ant-Man franchise, once could assume that Burch will want to get back at Lang and Co. for the destroying the company he so feverishly worked for.
Walton Goggins has joined the cast of Marvel’s “Ant-Man and the Wasp.”
Paul Rudd is returning in the title role with Evangeline Lilly coming back as Hope van Dyne — aka the Wasp. Michael Douglas and Michael Pena are also expected to reprise their roles from the original. “Black Mirror” star Hannah John-Kamen and Randal Park have joined the ensemble as well.
Marvel had no comment on the casting.
Peyton Reed, who helmed the first movie, is back in the director’s chair with Rudd and Gabriel Ferrari penning the script. Kevin Feige is producing.
The plot is being kept under wraps, as are details about Goggins’ character. Marvel will be unveiling the film at this week’s Comic-Con.
Goggins stars opposite Alicia Vikander in the “Tomb Raider” reboot, which bows March 16, and he just wrapped “Maze Runner: The Death Cure.” He was most recently seen in the History channel Navy Seal drama “Six.”
He is repped by ICM Partners and manager Darris Hatch. Deadline Hollywood first reported the news.
