No stranger to cast shake-ups, Django Unchained is once again losing a few marquee names. Sacha Baron Cohen announced yesterday that The Dictator publicity tour will require him to show up places and throw ashes on the unsuspecting rather than take the small slave owner role he’d previously agreed to. That’s a bummer. I was eager to see how he’d set back civil liberties on the red carpet at the premiere.

Also peace-outtying the production is Quentin Tarantino‘s Death Proof star Kurt Russell. An anonymous source claims they witnessed Russell storm off set apparantly unhappy with his role. However, if that was his standard practice how do you explain all of those Kurt Russell movies? Luckily, Walton Goggins is on set to lend a hand.

Goggins, who plays a different evil son of a bitch in the film, will absorb the evil deeds that Russell’s son of a bitch was slated to commit. Thanks for being a team player, Walton. (Cinema Blend)

Fans of the FX series Justified know that there’s more to the show than cool-looking hats, guns, bullets, and explosions. Fortunately, though, that’s not the case in this clip. You’ve got Raylan Givens and Boyd Crowder creeping through an alley, but the situation isn’t as simple as you might think. Anyway, if this appeals to you (and why the hell wouldn’t it?), the new season premieres, Tues. Jan. 17 on FX.

‘The Shield’ Alums Chiklis And Goggins Find Some Work http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-shield-alums-chiklis-and-goggins-find-some-work/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-shield-alums-chiklis-and-goggins-find-some-work/#comments Mon, 11 Jul 2011 20:44:01 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=219649 Chiklis will be playing the villain in Jason Statham's 'Parker', while Goggins and his teeth will play...a progressive democrat. Fun!

If you’re pursuing an acting career, think long and hard about at least an internship with The Shield’s Strike Team, as it seems to offer a wonderful springboard into high-profile acting gigs for its graduates.

Deadline reports that Michael Chiklis will be taking his brand of “stocky and bald” to Taylor Hackford‘s Parker, playing the villain opposite Jason Statham‘s hero. Two bald men enter, but only one will leave…

Walton Goggins, who has made a fair amount of noise as the ambivalent Boyd Crowder on Justified, will be taking his homespun southern mannerisms and batshit crazy hair to Spielberg’s Lincoln, where he will play Ohio (not southern, I know) Congressman Wells A. Hutchins, a rep who champions the abolishment of slavery. Nice work there, Boyd. This role comes on the heels of this summers Cowboys and Aliens and the Straw Dogs remake. This guy just loves all things southern! And who can blame him? It’s a wonderful cardinal direction!

When “Justified” premiered on FX, a lot of viewers were just excited to see Walton Goggins back on TV after “The Shield.” “Justified” quickly earned its own audience and Goggins made guest appearances as the show found its legs. “Justified” returns for season two on Feb. 9 and Boyd Crowder is back full time. I caught up with Goggins at the Fox party for the Television Critics Association in January for the scoop.

Q: Are you back as a featured character this year or the same number of appearances as last year?

WG: No, no, I’m back. It’s my show now with Tim. Yeah, it’s both of us. I’m signed on for good. It’s good.

Q: So how does that change the role and the commitment for you?

WG: Well, the commitment will be I can’t do another movie simultaneously. They kind of bought me, I’m there. I think it’s going to allow for the relationship between Raylan and Boyd to really take off and become more nuanced and complicated.

Q: Movies aside though, is that what you wanted all along?

WG: It is what I wanted, yeah. I think it’s what these two characters deserve.

Q: Are they sort of reflections of each other in a way?

WG: I think so, yeah. I don’t think Raylan can really exist without Boyd and Boyd can’t really exist without Raylan. They wear a similar hat, even though they look different on the surface.

Q: How soon might we get that confrontation we’re waiting to see?

WG: You know what? Sooner than you might expect and not quite the way you might expect.

Q: Well, we might expect it in the first episode and we might be wrong.

WG: You would be wrong but I would say by episode 2.

Q: What is the energy like in those face-off scenes with Olyphant?

WG: They’re a dream. He’s a dream actor. We just kind of show up and he’s so easy and fluid and it’s so nice to work with an actor who’s so fuckin’ confident and carries that ease about him. He continually challenges me. All I have to do is sit and listen to Tim talk and I’m a better actor.

Q: Do you get to carry a gun this year?

WG: Yeah, Boyd might find his way to a six shooter, yeah. I think he may use it too.

Q: Do you prefer the western style standoffs or full out action sequences?

WG: I like the western style quiet standoffs personally. I think there’s power in stillness and I like watching behaviors, but after being on “The Shield” for eight years, there’s something to that too. I like those volatile kind of angry all over the map emotional scenes as well. It’s nice to step back away from that with Boyd though. He’s a contemplative dude. He’s a very smart guy.

Q: What is it about the southern region that makes the western setup work in modern day?

WG: I think there’s still a certain amount of history and mystique that revolves around being from the South, or being from the hills. This occupation has been around for a very long time and it’s a very insulated culture. People don’t get an opportunity to see inside of that culture very often because it’s not really reflected in our art or entertainment, except one dimensionally. So I think that what we’re trying to do is really paint it three dimensionally. People are enjoying that, I hope. That’s what we’re trying to do.

Q: Have you gotten as attached to Boyd as you were to Shane?

WG I am. Yeah, already. I think that has something to do with age. I quite like the characters that I get to play and I get attached to them much quicker. Boyd is someone unlike any other person that I’ve played before. It’s nice to play that kind of intelligence.

Q: I never got a chance to ask you before, how did you feel about Shane’s fate in “The Shield?”

WG: You know what, initially it broke my heart but ultimately it couldn’t have gone any other way. I thought it was a genius move by Shawn Ryan. My biggest concern was to have people feel some empathy for Shane after that seven year journey. And they did. I think that’s more than I could ever ask for.

Who’s Your Daddy Now, ‘Predators’ Trailer? http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/whos-your-daddy-now-predators-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/whos-your-daddy-now-predators-trailer/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Brody faces off with a Predator disco ball. Now you all can finally see what those lucky f*cks at SXSW saw last Saturday. I'm considering being on board for this new Predators installment, but I can't yet fully commit. I have to first suspend my disbelief that Adrian Brody can play a mercenary (isn't that nose a hazard in the field?), and that Lawrence Fishburne can't stop a Predator cold in its tracks by simply shooting it the stink-eye. Here's your context from IGN:  Brody plays Royce, a mercenary who reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who come to realize they've been brought together on an alien planet... as prey. With the exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers – mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members – human "predators" that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien Predators. Yakuza and death squad members finally working together. And they say progress isn't being made in the world. Isn't that right, Walton Goggins? Walton: "Who's your daddy now?!" Man, I hope his character dies in the first act... Check out the trailer after the jump. Predators rips theaters a new asshole July 7.
