On today’s Fresh Air, we rebroadcast an interview with Timothy Olyphant about the TV series Justified. (We also rebroadcast parts of our conversation with Walton Goggins, who plays Brother Boyd on the show.)
Walton Goggins, on playing the white supremacist turned born-again Christian Boyd Crowder on the FX series Justified: “It was very important for me as an actor not to play this guy as a white supremacist but to play him as a bit of a Svengali: a person who doesn’t necessarily believe all that he espouses. … [In one episode] Tim [Olyphant] says ‘Boyd, I don’t think you believe everything that you’re saying. I think you just like to blow stuff up.’ And that was very important to me.”
Today: Walton Goggins, Wanda Jackson.
