Walton Goggins Joins 'DJANGO UNCHAINED'
It looks like film and television character actor Walton Goggins is the latest addition to Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained. The actor confirmed this along that he'll be in the role of Billy Crash to GQ (via ThePlaylist). Billy is one of Calvin Candie's (DiCaprio) slave wranglers so it's expected he'll have scenes with DiCpario and Kurt Russell. Goggins is best known for roles on shows like The Shield and Justified but has also had supporting roles in films like Predators, Bourne Identity, G.I. Joe Retaliation, House of 1000 Corpses, Lincoln and Cowboys And Aliens.
"This movie is radical. It's like a kid walking into a candy store, to use a trite, overused metaphor. I can't believe it. I just started work this week, and my very first day, I'm looking up, and there's Quentin. I'm in Quentin's world, in his imagination. His cinematic acumen is unparalleled, and he's able to draw from all these resources, which are all the movies that have ever been made. He's seen most, if not all of them, and he really is an auteur. He's a savant auteur who is as passionate and as playful as any artist I've ever worked with. His enthusiasm is infectious, and the story is a movie that only Quentin Tarantino could make."
The rest of the stunning cast includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx (Colatteral, Miami Vice), Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds), Kerry Washington, Kurt Russell (Death Proof, Escape From New York), Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction), Sascha Baron Cohen (Hugo, Sweeney Todd), James Remar (Dexter, Warriors), RZA (American Gangster), Anthony LaPaglia (The Client, Empire Records), Don Johnson (Machete), Evan Parke (King Kong), Laura Cayouette (Kill Bill Vol.2), Gerald McRaney (Red Tails, Deadwood), Tom Savani (Machete, Dusk Till Dawn) and Tom Wopat (Dukes of Hazard).
