Walton Goggins Gets Medieval in Quentin Tarantino’s <i>Django Unchained</i>

Walton Goggins has been a force to be reckoned with on cable television for over a decade now, starting with his explosive turn as Shane Vendrell on FX's The Shield and continuing through that network's top-notch procedural Justified as Boyd Crowder, the frenemy of lawman Raylan Givens. This fall, Goggins has key roles in two major Oscar hopefuls as well, Steven Spielberg's Lincoln and Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, both of which deal with America's tortured history with slavery... albeit in dramatically different ways. In Lincoln, Goggins portrays Congressman Clay Hutchins, who wrestles with whether to support the passage of the 13th Amendment outlawing slavery. Django, meanwhile, casts him as Billy Crash, the appallingly racist henchman of plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio) -- a role that requires him to torture Jamie Foxx's titular hero in particularly memorable fashion. Goggins spoke with TWoP about making both movies back-to-back, what to expect from Justified's fourth season (which kicks off on January 8), and shares exclusive details about the TV project he has in the pipeline next.
