Biography

An intense method actor who spent many years struggling in supporting roles as good-natured Southerners, Walton Goggins emerged as a star by portraying the corrupt and erratic Detective Shane Vendrell on the gritty cop drama, "The Shield" (FX, 2002-08). For seven seasons, Goggin's Vendrell amassed a laundry list of sins, not the least of which was the murder of a fellow cop out of fear he might reveal the misdeeds of the notorious Strike Team, a four-man crime fighting force led by the implacable Vic Mackey (Michael Chiklis). Prior to his star-making turn on "The Shield," Goggins logged numerous guest spots on television series, including "In the Heat of the Night" (CBS, 1988-1994) and "JAG" (NBC, 1995-2005), while he landed his first breakout role opposite Robert Duvall in "The Apostle" (1997). In 2001, he won an Academy Award as one of the producers of the acclaimed short film, "The Accountant," which he made with fellow actors Ray McKinnon and Lisa Blount. Though he made career strides with big-budget features like "Shanghai Noon" (2000) and "The Bourne Identity" (2002), Goggins would be forever identified with loose-cannon Vendrell. He did manage, however, to branch out after "The Shield" ended with another career-defining role on the hit series "Justified" (FX, 2010- ), all of which proved Goggins' ability to wow audiences was limitless, regardless of what role he tackled.
