Walton Goggins

Anyone who has watched the FX network shows, The Shield  or Justified,  is already familiar with the talent of Walton Goggins. And if anyone has never seen those shows, they have missed quite possibly the best actor on television. Or for that matter - in the industry.

Walton Goggins has been a working actor for over two decades and even though a lot of his film work has been in smaller roles, he has still managed to give worthy performances in many mainstream projects that range from The Apostle  to House of 1000 Corpses and from Shanghai Noon  to Predators.

His work on television has gotten him the most notice, but the bottom line is that this guy is as good as they get. His intensity and dedication to character makes him stand out time and time again. While not getting the mainstream movie roles that he deserves, Walton Goggins has thrived on the FX network and in small independent films like Randy and the Mob and That Evening Sun.

His most fascinating work to date, though, is as Shane Vendrell  on The Shield. Just watch the last three seasons and see for your self why Walton Goggins is Not Very Famous...but should be.
