Jamaal Finkley sits down with the ultimate bad guy in Django Unchained, Walton Goggins who plays the role of Billy Crash a southern slave handler in Quentin Tarantino’s controversial flick whose back drop is the ante-bell um south.
Walt Goggins, who plays Billy Crash, comments on the complexity of Candyland’s hierarchy: “He’s a part of sustaining this plantation system, because Billy Crash has it pretty good. Billy Crash and Stephen have a real understanding that we have to keep this gravy train going because we’re getting paid, and life’s pretty good for us at Candyland.”
WALTON GOGGINS (Billy Crash) was nominated for an Emmy for his pivotal role as ‘Boyd Crowder’ on FX’s Peabody Award-winning Drama series, Justified. Goggins will next be seen in Steven Spielberg’s highly anticipated feature “Lincoln.” The historical drama focuses on the political collision of Abraham Lincoln (Daniel Day Lewis) and the powerful men of his cabinet on the road to abolition and the end of the Civil War. Goggins plays Ohio Congressman Wells A. Hutchins, a progressive Democrat who goes against his party and votes in favor of the Thirteenth Amendment to abolish slavery. The stellar ensemble cast also includes Sally Field, David Strathairn, Tommy Lee Jones, Hal Halbrook, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and James Spader.
Goggins most recently completed production in New Orleans on G.I JOE 2: RETALIATION, starring Bruce Willis, Channing Tatum and Dwayne Johnson. Paramount will release the film on June 29,
Goggins previously garnered acclaim for his riveting portrayal of Detective Shane Vendrell on
