Walton Goggins

An intense method actor who spent many years struggling in supporting roles as good-natured Southerners, Walton Goggins first gained widespread attention by portraying the corrupt and erratic Detective Shane Vendrell on the gritty cop drama, "The Shield" (FX, 2002-08). Prior to his star-making turn on "The Shield," Goggins logged numerous guest spots on television series before landing his first major film role opposite Robert Duvall in "The Apostle" (1997). In 2001, he won an Academy Award as one of the producers of the acclaimed short film "The Accountant," which he made with fellow actors Ray McKinnon and Lisa Blount while tackling character roles in hits including "Shanghai Noon" (2000) and "The Bourne Identity" (2002). After "The Shield" ended, Goggins landed an even more acclaimed TV role as emotionally complex career criminal Boyd Crowder on the modern western "Justified" (FX, 2010-15) while co-starring in films including Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" (2012) and "The Hateful Eight" (2015).
