Emmy roundtable: Walton will ‘never forget’ 1st nomination


Firsts only happen once.

“Justified’s” Walton Goggins likened his first Emmy nomination to being a baby — or rather, the child-like wonder of experiencing something new.

“I have an 8-month-old son, and I’m reminded that there are so many firsts in life,” Goggins said during a roundtable discussion with fellow first-time Emmy nominees. “Every single day, something new is happening in his life … and this experience for me has been one that I’ll never forget, because it may very well never happen again, and that would be OK. But it’s been an extraordinary type of experience.”

Goggins was joined by Josh Charles, Michelle Forbes and Johnny Galecki in the roundtable, which was moderated by Los Angeles Times TV critic Mary McNamara last week in anticipation of this weekend’s 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards

Goggins (“Justified”) and Charles (“The Good Wife”) will battle it out in the supporting actor in a drama category. Michelle Forbes (“The Killing”) is holding her own in the supporting actress in a drama category. In the comedic corner, Johnny Galecki (“The Big Bang Theory”) received his first Emmy nomination for lead actor in a comedy.

You see Walton very briefly at the 1:00 mark right after Harrison Ford. 🙂

Walton Featured in Dodge RAM Commercial

It’s the Ram truck counterpart to Chrysler’s Eminem commercial. The one-minute ad ties in Ram trucks with the “Code of the West”. If you’re an honorable cowboy, you should be driving a Ram.

Apparently bad guys drive Ford F-150s, including what appears to be a brief cameo by actor Walton Goggins, aka Detective Shane Vendrell from “The Shield.”

Walton Discusses Creating Boyd Crowder and More

For Walton Goggins, who plays Boyd Crowder on “Justified,” the show’s Southern setting and rich language from Elmore Leonard make him proud. The Alabama native says foremost in mind in joining the series was not to perpetuate any stereotypes of Southerners. And as for creating Crowder, well, Goggins says, the outlaw didn’t have to be the smartest man in the room, he just needed to be on par with the smartest man in the room. Here’s a clip from Monday night’s Emmy Week conversation with the cast of “Justified.” Check back later for more excerpts.

TVGuide: Is Boyd Really Teaming Up with the Bennett Clan?


Justified star Walton Goggins says that Boyd Crowder needs to keep his friends close and his enemies closer. How else to explain the strange alliance that is brewing in the remaining episodes of the FX drama’s second season.

In the April 6 episode, Boyd made a deal with the devil of Harlan County: Mags Bennett (Margo Martindale). Boyd secured some key tracts of land that allowed Mags to extort the mining company. “What Boyd is able to do as well as any other foe on television is understand the pieces on the board, the players in the game and how things move,” Goggins tells TVGuide.com. “He’s able to zero in on an opportunity, and when that opportunity presents itself, he’s able to take advantage of it.”

But should Mags — or viewers — really trust him? “He’s a wily guy,” Goggins says with a wry smile. “He understands that his strength lies in ambiguity and manipulation. Boyd Crowder will always have a thing or two up his sleeve.

“In Harlan County, duplicitous people make strange bedfellows,” Goggins continues. “People that [Boyd] starts off with as allies may not be allies when everyone is left standing.” Indeed, in Wednesday’s episode, Boyd begins assembling a crew to assist him in his master plan, none of which helps the Bennetts. Boyd’s ultimate goal: to restore the Crowder name to its former glory in Harlan.

“Harlan County is clan culture,” Goggins says. “Clans tend to be violent when need be. … The people that you see on-screen now might not be on-screen as the episodes continue.”

This imminent bloodshed will most certainly put Boyd back in the sights of U.S. Marshal Rayln Givens (Timothy Olyphant). “They will butt heads in ways they have never butted heads before,” Goggins says. “But at the end of that, they may see the world the same.”

Justified airs Wednesdays at 10/9c on FX.
