After galvanizing the first season of the FX series Justified with a character that morphed from avowed enemy of Tim Olyphant’s federal Marshall Raylan Givens, into a not entirely trustworthy wingman, Walton Goggins will spend his hiatus time shooting at extraterrestrials. He’s joined the cast of the DreamWorks/Universal film Cowboys and Aliens, which shoots this summer with Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig starring. Goggins, who’ll also be seen shortly in Fox’s Predators, will then hopefully reprise his Boyd Crowder character, since Justified was renewed for a second season.
Justified’s Timothy Olyphant spoke of Walton in a recent interview and here is what he had to say:
Do you enjoy working with Walton Goggins, who plays Boyd?
“He’s fantastic. And he just gets better and better. The story between Boyd and Raylan really becomes the major story of the season. Walt’s performance is just spot on and just so entertaining. I think it was Elmore who said after watching one or two of his episodes, ‘You know what, I don’t think I believe a word of what this guy’s saying but I can’t take my eyes off him’. You know, he’s just so entertaining. A real captivating performance.”
I’ve added over 200 captures of Walt in the 1998 movie “Major League: Back to the Minors” 🙂

One of actor Walton Goggins’ earliest moments on stage came at a Georgia hog-calling competition when he was just 10 years old.
“I walked up onstage, and they had to adjust the mike for sure, and just leaned up on my tiptoes and just let out the biggest hog call that has ever been heard in my family, certainly,” he tells Fresh Air’s Terry Gross. “And I won — I got a big trophy with a large hog on top. I have it in my office.”
Goggins says his days on the hog-calling circuit certainly helped propel him toward an acting career. Though he’s played many characters over the years, he is perhaps best known for his roles on The Shield — where he played a member of a corrupt narcotics squad — and the current FX series Justified, where he plays a white supremacist turned born-again Christian named Boyd Crowder.
Crowder also happens to be a fugitive bank robber hiding in the hills of eastern Kentucky, and an old buddy of the county’s newest U.S. marshal, played by Timothy Olyphant — who’s now on the other side of the law.
Acquiring the long drawl he uses to portray the quick-witted Crowder, says Goggins, took quite a bit of time.
