Walton Talks ‘Django Unchained’, Shooting Movies Around His ‘Justified’ Schedule, and Tarantino vs. Spielberg

django unchained movie poster teaser 545x807 Walton Talks Django Unchained, Shooting Movies Around His Justified Schedule, and Tarantino vs. SpielbergQuestion: What can you say about your character in this film?
WALTON GOGGINS: I play one of the coolest cowboys. I play Billy Crash, who’s the chief overseer on the Candie Land plantation, owned by Calvin Candie, who is played by Leonardo [DiCaprio]. Calvin has a penchant for watching Mandingos, or black men, fight, and it’s a violent fight to the death. I’m his Mandigo fight trainer, extraordinaire. He’s a ruthless guy. He’s a tough motherfucker. But, he’s also really cool.

How did you prepare for this role?
GOGGINS: Getting comfortable with the gun. It’s a big part of who he is. Quentin calls this movie a Southern, but part of it is a real Western. I’m very lucky that Billy Crash is one of the main antagonists, in the Western scope of the movie. So, I had to get really, really good with my gun ‘cause this guy is one of the fastest draws in the west, and he’s smooth. Your personality is dictated by how you hold and holster your weapon, and what you do with it, in between, so I spent a lot of time on that. I also spent a lot of time thinking about his walk and the way that he stands. I wanted to infuse this man who does these barbaric things and have him stand very elegantly. When you put that gear on, you just walk a certain way. I thought it was really cool.

How did this movie fit in with your Justified schedule?
GOGGINS: I did Lincoln in the Fall, while we were working [on the show]. John Landgraf at FX and Graham [Yost] really wanted it to happen for me, so they were very accommodating. That happens, from time to time, on shows. They were going to accommodate this too, but it got pushed a little bit. We wrapped on March 1st, and this started afterwards. The thing about cable, that you’re not afforded in network, is that we do 13 episodes, so we work five months out of the year. I have seven months to do movies, and I love both. I love going to work every day. I love my show. I love Boyd Crowder. I don’t want to leave that. But, I love telling stories in this format, too.

Walton Talks Playing an Outlaw Betrayed, In Love with Entertainment Weekly

Written by Carol

Make sure you check out the interview in its entirety over at EW.com

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: First things first: When I talked to Graham Yost [exec producer of Justified] for an upcoming Emmy Watch item advocating for the show to break into the Best Drama category this year, he said there’d be dancing if that happens. He agreed to get you to clog on-camera for us. Are you in?
WALTON GOGGINS: (Laughs) Alright, alright. If the show gets nominated, I will clog for EW.com. You have my word. I may have to generate my own video. I may have to be in control of the shot and the lighting, but I promise you will have something you can upload to the site.

Excellent. Now, let’s talk about landing you another nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Tell us about the scene in the episode “The Devil You Know” when Boyd kills Devil (Kevin Rankin) for betraying him by joining forces with carpetbagger mobster Quarles (Neal McDonough).
People have written about it in ways that it kind of reminds the audience that Boyd is a bad man. On one hand, I agree, and on the other, I take issue simply because Boyd killed a man who was there to kill him. Boyd took no pleasure in that experience whatsoever. It broke his heart because he had to kill a person that he cared a great deal about, even though their worldviews had long since parted ways. You can’t leave someone like that alive in the perimeters of this outlaw world. Devil walks in full of this bravado and confidence thinking that he had pulled the wool over a very smart man’s eyes, and he was sure that it was going to end with him walking out of that room. What I got off on so much as an actor is that the first three-quarters of the scene really put Boyd in a very, very weak position. It’s the first time, at least on paper, that Boyd appears to be back on his heels, and in trouble, and there is no escape for him. It was important to do it that way — that was the only way that it really could be played to allow Devil to make the decision for himself. [Boyd's basically saying] “I am your friend. I can find it within myself to forgive you if you, having all the power, at least in your mind, decide not to use it. Then we can talk about it.” Boyd just asks him over and over again. But Devil decided that he was going to have to pay for the betrayal that he was committing. This isn’t an actor trying to justify his character’s actions. It really isn’t. As an outsider looking at the scene, to me, that’s a benevolent leader… in a perverted sorta way. (Laughs) To me, it’s very a benevolent way of taking another man’s life.

It’s amazing how far Boyd and Ava have come in three seasons.
I know some tent pole issues that we’re going to be dealing with going forward, and we still have a lot of story to go. That’s what I’m so grateful for. We’re still going up the hill.
