History’s Navy SEAL Drama Series ‘SIX’ Gets Season 2 Premiere Date

Deadline.com — History has slotted Memorial Day, Monday, May 28 at 10 PM for a special premiere of its hit Navy SEAL drama series Six. It also will air a second new episode during its regular timeslot on Wednesday May 30 at 10 PM.

From A+E Studios, the ten-episode second season follows Navy SEAL Team Six in a mission to destroy the terrorist network responsible for the shooting of their former team leader Richard “Rip” Taggart (Walton Goggins). Led by Joe ‘Bear’ Graves (Barry Sloane), the Navy SEALS will join forces with cunning and tenacious CIA officer Gina Cline, played by newcomer Olivia Munn, to scour Eastern Europe, infiltrating hostile territory and terrorist hotspots like Chechnya as they track the mastermind behind Michael’s (Dominic Adams) jihadist network. The chase will bring the Navy SEALs to the border of Russia, where the consequences of their actions could spark World War III.

Also returning for season two are series regulars Kyle Schmid, Juan Pablo Raba, Edwin Hodge, Jaylen Moore, Brianne Davis and Nadine Velazquez. In addition to Munn, newcomers to season two include previously announced Eric Ladin and Nikolai Nikolaeff and recurring guest star, Erik Palladino.

Six was created and written by William Broyles and David Broyles, a military special operations veteran. William Broyles, David Broyles, Bruce C. McKenna, Alfredo Barrios, Jr., George W. Perkins, Meryl Poster and Barry Jossen are executive producers. Arturo Interian serves as the executive producer for History.

Walton Goggins to Play Kevin Spacey Role in CBS’ L.A. Confidential Pilot

Walton Goggins to Play Kevin Spacey Role in CBS’ L.A. Confidential Pilot

CBS’ new take on L.A. Confidential has booked a big name to star.

Emmy nominee Walton Goggins (Justified) has signed on to headline the buzzy pilot, according to our sister site Variety. Goggins will play the role of Detective Jack Vincennes, the flashy and morally questionable LAPD cop played by Kevin Spacey in the Oscar-winning 1997 film.

Like the film, CBS’ L.A. Confidential — which scored an official pilot order earlier this month — is based on the novel by acclaimed crime author James Ellroy, and follows a trio of homicide detectives, a reporter and an aspiring actress as their lives intersect in 1950s Los Angeles. Jordan Harper (Gotham, The Mentalist) will pen the pilot and serve as an executive producer on the project, should it go to series.

Goggins is best known to TV fans as charming criminal Boyd Crowder on FX’s Justified, a role that earned him an Emmy nomination in 2011. He also memorably played detective Shane Vendrell on The Shield and transgender prostitute Venus Van Dam on Sons of Anarchy. Recently, Goggins co-starred on History’s Navy SEAL drama SIX and with Danny McBride on HBO’s Vice Principals.

IGN: Walton Goggins Explains ‘Tomb Raider’ Villain’s Motives

“I suppose his vendetta, if there is one, really comes from anger and frustration at the last seven years of his life, at the mundane kind of aspect of his life, which is looking for this tomb, you know? He’s wasted his life and has missed his family, looking for this thing that Lara Croft’s father had the coordinates for,” Goggins said of what drives Vogel in the film. “And you meet him not at the nascent stage of his journey or the apex of his journey, but literally on a Wednesday of the longest week of his life. And he’s just exhausted.”

He added, “This man is ready to get off of this island, and he will do anything to achieve that end.” As for how much of a bad guy Vogel is in the grand scheme of the story, Goggins would only describe Mathias as “a cog in the wheel, and what the audience doesn’t know is how big of a player he truly is. And I won’t ruin that for you, because I think that you need to see the movie in order to answer that question.”

Goggins, by his own admission, is not a gamer nor has he seen the original two Angelina Jolie Tomb Raider movies although he was aware of them. The actor — whose credits include Justified, The Shield, Vice Principals, and The Hateful Eight — explained why he didn’t feel the need to familiarize himself with the actual Tomb Raider games once he booked the role.

“I didn’t play this game initially, and I certainly didn’t play this game once the opportunity came to kind of go and tell this story. Because I knew that everyone else would have done that, and therefore that voice would have been served,” Goggins said. “I felt the way I could best contribute to this story is to have someone that wasn’t beholden to the mythology of Lara Croft. Someone that looks at the story based on the merits of the story. And I think you need a lot of different voices in order to try to pull something off like this.”

He continued: “And my job, the way that I saw it, to service my director, my studio, and most importantly, my fellow actor, Alicia, and the audience, was to be as authentic and three-dimensional as I could be with the parameters which I was asked to play in. And for me, that didn’t necessitate learning this game. It, for me, necessitated learning, for Mathias, what his life had been like up until that point. And I felt like we did that. You know, I think the world of Alicia and I am just blown away by her very realistic interpretation of Lara Croft. And, you know, I’m so grateful I had the chance to tell this story in this way.”

Goggins is a huge admirer of his co-star Alicia Vikander, calling her “one of the greatest actors of her generation.” He said that “she already had a fan in me, and now she has a friend for life” after making Tomb Raider together: “I genuinely believe that Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, that this new incarnation, this kind of origin story of this very, very, very powerful, powerful woman is, what you’ll see is, on screen, is a true reflection of the time that we had, man. I mean, we were in South Africa for almost four and a half months, you know? And when I wasn’t working, I mean, I traveled all over Namibia and Mozambique. And just – we worked really hard, and we played really hard, and tried to tell the best story that we could.”

Tomb Raider opens in theaters March 16th.

‘Maze Runner’ Star Dylan O’Brien on Working with Walton

‘Maze Runner’ Star Dylan O’Brien on Working with Walton

heraldsun.com.au — Now the trilogy concludes with Thomas determined to save every one of the Gladers, including Teresa (Kaya Scodelario), a turncoat now working for WCKD. That will require breaking back in to WCKD’s heavily fortified HQ.

“He’s got a problem, he needs to go to rehab,” O’Brien laughs of Thomas’s saviour complex.

“It’s the heartbreaking piece of my character’s journey. He just believes so badly that he can protect and save everyone that he cares about. The fact that is never true is something that really weighs on him.”

As the trilogy has gone on, it has bolstered its young cast with classy veterans such as Patricia Clarkson, Giancarlo Esposito, Barry Pepper and Aidan Gillen. O’Brien considers himself lucky to have great moments with all of them in this final chapter.

He got even luckier third time out with Walton Goggins — star of Justified, The Hateful Eight and a certified dude — joining the world as an anarchist rebel leader.

“He’s a super cool dude,” O’Brien grins. “He was really complimentary of our films, too. I was geeking out because I love Walton Goggins, he’s a great actor, so it was cool to see he that this wasn’t just a job he was taking, he did like what we were doing.”
