Walton Talks Justified Season 5 with TVWise

Check out the rest of Walt’s interview over at TVWise.co.uk now!

TVWise: How would you explain Boyd’s frame of mind as we begin season five with Ava unjustly imprisoned?

Walton Goggins: I feel that Boyd is cornered. He’s a man with no real options and he is impotent, he is without power and that’s a very scary place for a man like Boyd Crowder to be. In that situation – which has never really happened to him – it’s a new paradigm for Boyd. He’s acting out in ways that he normally otherwise would not. He’s been reduced to a man who is reactive instead of proactive. So, when you are the kind of person that Boyd Crowder is, that can be very dangerous.

TVWise: Your character has gone through many ups and downs over the past four seasons, as an actor, how has it been to play this role?

Walton Goggins: It’s a dream come true. I’ve been in television now for almost 12 years in this way, on a series. To go from my first experience which was 7 years to this experience, I feel like I am one of the most blessed actors working because I’ve had an opportunity to play two guys back to back that are never static, always moving and always changing and tragic in similar, but very, very different ways. I understand what this opportunity means and what this experience really means. Michael Chiklis said something to me during the first season of The Shield and it’s been a mantra of mine for the better part of a decade now. He said you should never be cavalier with success. It is something to be honored and respected and to be grateful for every single day. I feel that way 5 years into this show and all the friendships I’ve made and getting to work with Tim Olyphant and all the other actors. It will be a sad day when I no longer button my shirt all the way to the top as Boyd Crowder.

TVWise: Has there been a scene or moment that occurs this season that stood out to you and might surprise us fans?

Walton Goggins: There have been multiple [scenes] this season. At the end of episode 1 and what Boyd does at the end of that episode really surprised me. It went through several different incarnations before we settled on that one. It was the choice that was most organic to Boyd and the journey that he finds himself on. This is a man whose greatest sword is his tongue and for the first time when faced with the truth about his own responsibility for Ava’s incarceration, he has nothing to say and that never happens to a man like Boyd Crowder. When it did happen, he resorts to brutality and the response of an animal. Once that is over as you see in episode one, once he has exercised those pent up emotions, he’s able to go back to being himself and that was very surprising to me. It’s something I’ve always known was there if he was forced in a corner, but it’s the first time it’s ever really happened to that degree.

Special thanks to Troy of TVWise.co.uk for the opportunity to assist in his interview.

TVLine: Executive Producer Graham Yost dishes on Justified Season 5!

Check out this exclusive scoop on the all-new season of Justified, courtesy of TVLine.com!

PREVIOUSLY ON… | ?Ava was prison-bound for the murder of Delroy, Nicky Augustine’s reign of terror came to an end in a hail of bullets, and Winona’s was still with child.

COMING UP NEXT | Season 5 will introduce us to Dewey Crowe’s extended crime family, and his brood is every bit as dysfunctional and deplorable as the Bennetts of Season 2. But there’s one major difference between the two crazy clans: Whereas Mags’ bloodline “had a history in the region,” Dewey’s Florida-based kin (led by Michael Rapaport’s ruthless Dale) “are an invasive species,” notes exec producer Graham Yost. An unhinged-as-ever Boyd, meanwhile, is doing “everything he can to get Ava out of jail,” a pursuit that “forms the story for the first five episodes” and beyond, notes Yost, who promises that Ava’s struggle behind bars will be less Orange is the New Black and more, well, Justified (translation: expect a healthy dose of jailhouse savagery). And there’s big news for Raylan on the personal front. Not only does he meet a special new lady (an insightful, shrewd social worker played by Amy Smart), but he’s finally a father. Yep, when the new season picks up, Winona will have already given birth to a healthy baby [spoiler]. But don’t expect a reunion between mom and dad to follow, partly because Natalie Zea has other commitments (including Fox’sThe Following) and partly because, as Yost points out, “They know being together is just too hard.”

CinemaBlend.com — Season 4 offers some of the shows very best episodes, and the drama continues to be the best adaptation of Elmore Leonard’s writing voice to date.

The set itself should be a pretty good one. Blu-ray copies of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s release will come with a segment tracking the script, as well as a segment featuring Walton Goggins discussing his character, Boyd Crowder. DVD copies will come with fewer extras, but those extras should still take the viewer some time to get through. The DVD sets will include a whopping 10 commentaries, along with several featurettes. You can pre-order the sets over at Amazon or check out the list of bonus features, below.

Walton Talks Justified; Says “There’s a Season 5 Scene that ‘Permanently Altered’ How I See Boyd.”

Walton Talks Justified; Says “There’s a Season 5 Scene that ‘Permanently Altered’ How I See Boyd.”

TVLine.com — Production on Justified‘s fifth season (bowing in early 2014) has only just begun, but already Walton Goggins has been pushed to the limit by the direction the acclaimed FX drama is taking his Harlan County outlaw, Boyd Crowder.

“I’ll say this: I filmed a scene [for the season premiere] until almost 1 a.m. that has permanently altered the way that I see Boyd Crowder,” he tells TVLine, careful not to spoil it outright. “I’m as excited about it and scared by it as I’ve ever been, as an actor. But it’s done and that’s what it is. Boyd will have to deal with that emotion.”

“This is a headset that I’ve never been in for Boyd Crowder,” shares Goggins. “I don’t think he’s ever been as cornered or felt as impotent as he feels right now. That emotion for a man like Boyd is a dangerous place to be.”

The Sons of Anarchy scene-stealer and Oscar-winning filmmaker notes that “while Boyd may not be able to break the glass ceiling after what happened last season, that glass ceiling will definitely take some of his bullets.” And in the meantime, “Between [executive producer] Graham [Yost], the writers, Tim [Olyphant] and myself, we’re just trying to figure out who Boyd is right now. It’s still a mystery to me five years in, but I’m closer to solving it than I’ve ever been.

“Tighten your belt,” he adds with a laugh, “because it’s going to be pretty bumpy on the Crowder train.”

Justified Season 4 Finale Post Mortem – Index Post

Check out snippets of what Justified show-runner Graham Yost had to say about the season four finale and what’s to come in season 5! Plenty more under the cut!

They show up to the spot and find police have already found the body. Instead of leaving, Boyd goes up to talk to Officer Mooney (William Gregory Lee), which I thought was a surprising choice.
He’s Boyd. They can’t arrest him for just driving. So he’ll just go up. His relationship with Mooney has been on and off. It seemed like a smart way for him to find out more.

Boyd then decides to use Mooney and Lee Paxton (Sam Anderson), whose funeral home serves as storage for law enforcement, to help him switch bodies so it’s not Delroy’s body that was found.
That came out of the room. What would Boyd try to do? Okay, so, they’ve got Ellen May, she could testify, but if they don’t have a body, then the case might fall apart. So let’s take care of the body and get it out of there. We can’t? Okay, where is it? We’re still not done yet. It’s just that Boyd sense of he’ll always keep working a problem until it’s absolutely impossible to do so. And believe you me, at the beginning of next season, we’re gonna see him continue to work the problem. How can he get Ava out of jail? And what will he do in order to accomplish that?

Boyd and Jimmy digging up the grave for a replacement body was a surprisingly fun scene with Jimmy falling through the coffin.
Those guys in a graveyard at night, in a potter’s field, digging up a corpse, stuff comes up. I don’t know exactly the origin of Boyd’s run about who that is in the ground. The little behind the scenes thing is Jesse Lukens, on one take, when his foot went through, he actually damaged his foot quite badly. At the cast party, he was on crutches. He was in real pain. But we use that on Justified — if a character’s in real pain, we use it.

While that’s happening, Boyd is driving Raylan to the airport for the meeting. That’s another crucial scene that’s all dialogue.
That scene had a lot of talk between the writers, and Tim, and Walton. What can we get out of here? Tim is always interested in being clear that Boyd is a bad guy, but as he basically says, “You’re a white supremacist, you’re leading a church out in the woods. Who are you, and what do you really believe in? So if you say you love this woman [Ava], how is that different from all the other stuff that you’ve said?” Of course, Boyd maintains that it is different. We wanted to play up that dynamic, and then the whole notion of Boyd going at Raylan is something that we’d established pretty nicely in the opening of episode 10 when he says, “Raylan, you are an asshole, you should have been an outlaw.” And that just goes back thematically to Raylan and Arlo: Who is Raylan? How much is he like Arlo? Is he really just Arlo with a badge?
