Walton Goggins on his new compelling FX role and why he almost didn't take it
And if you thought he couldn't do better than Shane Vendrell on "The Shield," well, he thought the same thing.
"[Michael] Chiklis and I have had many conversations about Vic Mackey and Shane Vendrell and thinking, well, that was it," Goggins said. "It happens once in an actor's career and you can celebrate it and continue to work but you'll always have that one thing. Once in a lifetime. To get the opportunity to sit at the table again with a character that I can't wait to show up to work for is one of the greatest gifts in my life, certainly. And to be back on my network, my home, that's a rarity for an artist and it was just too good to pass up."
To think he almost did.
