One of the most brilliant actors working today is without a doubt Walton Goggins and today is his birthday!!
He got his big break as Shane Vandrell on The Shield. He’s absolutely brilliant as one of the dirtiest cops in a show full of dirty cops. He imbued his performance with a great menace.
His most famous role is easily Boyd Crowder in Justified, the main villain on the show. Astoundingly, he was supposed to be killed off in the first episode. It was only after they saw his performance that they realized they had to keep him alive for the entire run.
He’s currently starring as the conniving Lee Russell in Vice Principals with Danny McBride. He is absolutely hilarious in the role, getting many of the best laughs in the show.
He’s appeared in several movies as well, giving performances in films like Cowboys & Aliens, the Straw Dogs remake, and Machete Kills that were better than the films’ deserved. He’s joined Tarantino’s roster of actors, appearing in Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight. He’s particularly great in The Hateful Eight.
Also, he was the only reason to watch later day Sons Of Anarchy, other than misguided devotion. He was amazing as the transgender Venus Van Dam.
Hope you all have fun posting here tonight and have a great night.
