When you consider the leading men in today’s roles, few manage to capture the true essence of their characters. We so often are subjected to a constant barrage of the same garbage-roles, written in the same garbage-manner — the underdog always wins, the bad guys always lose…
Well when is comes to Walton Goggins career in both TV and Film, none of the aforementioned statements ring true. This guy has made a career out of making small-roles huge.
The best example I could give is Goggins’ portrayal of Shane Vendrell in FX’s gritty cop-drama The Shield. From the start of the series, Shane serves as a sort of right-hand-man to the main character, Vic Mackey (played by Michael Chiklis). Over the course of the 7 seasons, Shane goes from being a dude with some cool scenes and a moderate amount of screen-time, to the ultimate show-stopper. Literally. If you are familiar with The Shield you know what I’m talking about. If you aren’t, let me just say that Goggins trumps his colleagues on screen — and this cast included Glenn Close, CCH Pounder, Forrest Whittaker, etc. When I expressed my admiration for his performance on The Shield, Goggins just humbly laughed and diverted the conversation towards his experiences on and off the set with the other cast members.
As much as I admired and continue to admire Mr. Goggins’ work, his professional rapport and approach to the industry is one that Hollywood can learn from. Every time we referenced one of his roles he has this expression of thankfulness that I have rarely seen. The “movie-star” sense of entitlement just doesn’t exist with this guy. What I mean to say is: THIS GUY IS JUST A NORMAL DUDE.
I think that has a great deal to do with his Southern upbringing. Goggins is a native Atlantean, though since moving to L.A. he says his tastes have gradually shifted from “pulled-pork to sushi.”
In the upcoming Predator sequel, aptly entitled Predators, Walton is playing “Stans,” a vicious, sociopathological serial killer. As with many of his other projects, Predators is made up of a stellar ensemble cast; a huge asset to Walton considering his style seems to be so in touch with the people around him.
Keep your eye on this guy — I’m promise you he is going to be the biggest character actor of the new generation in Hollywood. Microwave some popcorn, pop a squat in your favorite chair and get comfortable, Walton Goggins is the newest household name, and he’s here to stay.
I’ve added 106 captures of Walton’s guest role on CSI’ Season 7 episode “Empty Eyes” from 2007. I’ve also added the video of his scenes only, which I have to say is really worth watching simply because of how greatly he portrays his character, though when does he not? However, if you watch toward the end he seems to have channeled a little bit of Michael C. Hall’s character from Dexter, which I personally loved. If you watch Dexter, you’ll see what I mean. 🙂
It’s great being a character actor. You don’t have to go through the ups and downs of an A-list star or worry about your star distinguishing and being left for dead by Hollywood. If you make a name – or face – for yourself, you just keep on working…
Walton Goggins is a great case in point. The man’s been at it since the early 90s, appearing in over 50 movies and t.v. shows. He’s mostly been a “that guy”, but now he’s turning into “ohhhh THAT guy!”, which is perhaps the highest achievement for a character actor. Most recently, he’s had big turns in the t.v. shows “The Shield” and “Justified”, and he’s soon to be seen in Fox’s PREDATORS. Slowly but surely, he’s getting out there in bigger, cooler projects.
Goggins has just nabbed another plum role, this time in Jon Favreau’s COWBOYS AND ALIENS. It’s not been revealed just what role he’ll be tackling, but my first guess would be someone shady, as is his forte. Still, being on a set with Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford and Olivia Wilde (pictured below) must be so awesome, you probably wouldn’t mind being typecast. Typecasting can be a character actor’s best friend…
COWBOYS AND ALIENS opens in July 2011.
