'Justified': Walton Goggins on the return to a violent Boyd (and why Boyd was resurrected after the pilot)

“I don’t believe a goddamn thing you say, but I sure do enjoy watching you say it.” That’s how Walton Goggins remembers the great Elmore Leonard breaking the ice after he sheepishly introduced himself to the author at a party during Justified‘s first season as the man who plays Boyd Crowder, TV’s most eloquent badass. “It just made me howl,” Goggins says.

It’s fitting then that Justified‘s Jan. 7 season 5 premiere — which begins with a 90-second tribute to Leonard, who died last August — marks a return to the Boyd of the pilot. The season picks up roughly three months after his fiancée Ava (Joelle Carter) was busted moving Delroy’s body and she’s still in jail, impatiently awaiting her case to be assigned a judge so Boyd can get to threatening him. Problems with the heroin pipeline will quickly send Boyd and Wynn Duffy (Jere Burns, now a series regular) to Detroit. And after selling Audrey’s to Dewey Crowe (Damon Herriman) for a pretty penny, Boyd will eventually have to deal with Dewey’s interloping cousin Darryl Crowe Jr. (Michael Rapaport), the season’s Big Bad, who leads his Florida swamp family to Harlan after Raylan vanquishes their latest moneymaker in Miami.

'Justified': Michael Rapaport on playing the new Big Bad (and that time he saw a gator at Michael Jackson's house)

Justified fans have plenty of reasons to look forward to season 5 (which begins Jan. 7 at 10 p.m. ET on FX). Top on the list: Fan favorite Dewey Crowe (Damon Herriman) is back and we’ll be meeting his Florida swamp cousins — led by Darryl Crowe Jr. (Michael Rapaport), this year’s Big Bad. “It’s that sense that they’re carrion birds,” executive producer Graham Yost says. “They come in, they’re invasive, they’re hard to get rid of. We meet essentially all of them in the first episode, then they start coming up to Kentucky and settle on the wire one at a time. You just know that it’s bad news.”

Raylan (Timothy Olyphant), who we’ll learn has put Darryl away before, is called to Florida in the premiere to help locate and vanquish the Crowes’ latest moneymaker. Darryl’s next move after hearing his cousin Dewey has come into money? Harlan, where he’ll learn Dewey is now the proud owner of Audrey’s, having bought it from Boyd (Walton Goggins).

Rapaport was offered the role of the smart gator farmer/hustler contingent on him being able to do a Southern accent. He sent producers a clip of a tiny indie film he’d done (2004’s America Brown) and a fresh voice memo he’d recorded on his phone of a made-up monologue. He worked with a dialect coach and channeled his deep reality TV addiction: “Reality shows are a good resource for actors because there’s a lot of great accents,” explains the fan of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, Love & Hip Hop New York, The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and Shahs of Sunset. “Now I have an excuse: Moonshiners, those guys got thick, thick accents, so much that they sometimes have subtitles, and then there’s another one with snakes [National Geographic Channel’s Snake Salvation].” READ FULL STORY

'Justified' star Walton Goggins talks 'Community' guest role -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS

Oh, Boyd! Justified‘s Walton Goggins is headed to Greendale! Goggins will guest-star on the Jan. 16 episode of Community as Mr. Stone, an investigator with a connection to Pierce (ex-cast member Chevy Chase) who administers a lie-detector test to the study group. “I come with scathing criticism and an offer that even Boyd Crowder couldn’t refuse,” he says. “It’s really an opportunity for this group of characters that we’ve all grown to love to really look at themselves and to take a moment to reflect on who they are in this world. I don’t think people will view this show the same way afterward — because of the things that are said and because of what the characters say about themselves. And it does it in a way that only Community can do. It does it with biting humor and a real understanding of smart people understanding themselves. And it’s very touching in the way that it wraps up without telling you how it all unfolds.” READ FULL STORY

'Sons of Anarchy' postmortem: Walton Goggins talks Venus' revealing return

Spoiler alert! If you haven’t watched the Oct. 22 episode of Sons of Anarchy, “Sweet and Vaded” (read our recap),  stop now. We learned why Venus Van Dam (Walton Goggins) had returned looking for Nero: Venus’ 15-year-old “nephew” Joey, who was actually her son, had fallen into the custody of her mother, Alice — who’d launched a lucrative child pornography service back when Venus was a young Vincent. Venus needed SAMCRO to help her liberate Joey. Here, Goggins chats about Venus’ drama — and about that tender moment with Tig (Kim Coates). Special bonus for Justified fans: He also offers a juicy Boyd Crowder tease for season 5.  READ FULL STORY

'Justified': Joelle Carter previews tonight's season finale, takes the EW Pop Culture Personality Test

Season 4 of Justified wraps up tonight (FX, 10 p.m. ET) with another tense hour. Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) and Boyd (Walton Goggins) make their final plays to keep pregnant Winona (Natalie Zea) safe from Nicky Augustine (Mike O’Malley), and prevent Ava (Joelle Carter) from going to jail for Delroy’s murder. “I think she really feels responsibility for this situation because she’s the one who pulled the trigger and then didn’t potentially get rid of the body in the right way,” Carter says of Ava’s mindset. “She’s had help from other people, and it’s come back to bite her in the butt, so in this episode, by will and choice, she gets separated from the crew and has to take things on herself.”  READ FULL STORY

Patton Oswalt returns to 'Justified' and it's not pretty -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Tonight’s episode of FX’s Justified is, in the words of showrunner Graham Yost, “about as fun as any episode we’ve done.” The hour becomes a great Western as Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) and the Marshals try to get famed fugitive Drew Thompson (Jim Beaver) — who’d reinvented himself as the local sheriff — out of Harlan alive. That means keeping him away from Boyd (Walton Goggins), who’s under pressure from Nicky Augustine (Mike O’Malley) to keep Drew from ratting on Detroit mobster Theo Tonin.

“It’s Boyd’s version of a bullet,” Goggins said in a conference call with reporters. “I’m going after Raylan Givens to save my own hide and, more importantly, the love of Boyd’s life’s hide…. You will see Boyd capitulate in a way and have fear in a way that I’ve never had playing Boyd.”

The episode is high-stakes for everyone, including Patton Oswalt’s Constable Bob, who returns at an inopportune time. You’ll definitely want to see how he ends up looking like he does in the exclusive clip below. READ FULL STORY
