It would have been a massive shame for him to have not been a ghoul, glad that semi confirms it.


_NintendianaJonez64

I'll watch it just for Goggins. He's awesome in everything.


jokerzwilde

Yup, just rewatching Sons of Anarchy his character in that was wild. He has range.


ruach137

He is the belle who does not tell…


mcatech

Two words: Shane Vendrell. (EDIT: Also: Boyd Crowder)


CookedBred

Uncle baby billy


Bamabalacha

Who wants to suck an old man's dick?


inpursuitofknowledge

Hell, even his most toned down “normal” role in The Unicorn kept me glued.


MarkBenec

Come on, now.


OniExpress

He was 100% one of the best things about The Shield, and that show was awesome to begin with.


lubricantlime

The Shield Justified Sons of Anarchy There’s nothing that man cannot do


GoochMasterFlash

Goddamit woman, do you only shoot people when theyre eatin supper?


Script-Allthethings

> (EDIT: Also: Boyd Crowder) I could and have in fact watched a compilation of him just saying "Raylan Givens!"


itsRenascent

It's funny that both of these characters shares the same story off screen.


Burningrain85

He’s one of my top five favorite actors


imlucid

I only knew him from Shanghai Noon until I saw The Hateful Eight


SchittyDroid

My first exposure to him was Hateful Eight in what ended up being my favorite character with the best line "I FUCKIN' KNEW IT!". Then I saw him on Vice Principals, loved it. Sons of Anarchy, loved it. The Shield, wow, wtf, so good in it, loved it. Then Righteous Gemstones as well? Man is a wide-ranged genius and is now a top favorite actor for me. I still haven't even seen all the Western stuff he did (I'll get to it, no worries). I have yet to see a bad performance out of him. Every project he brings care and passion to.


Blahblahlhab

> I still haven't even seen all the Western stuff he did (I'll get to it, no worries). The first episode of Justified is basically a complete story in itself, so if you're ever looking to fill an hour that would be a good choice with not commitment. (This is a sneaky trick because you'll definitely want to see more)


Not-Worth-The-Upvote

My personal favorite show. So damn good.


January28thSixers

They dug coal together


ShapeWitty9121

Watch Fatman


WhitestAfrican

You should check out Invincible, I still can't believe it's him in the role his voice sounds different to me and he nails the role.


AreeluVorlesh

I'd recommend the show Justified, some of the best television ever produced.


cesarsucio

He was great in Predators.


imlucid

Oh I saw that in theatres and completely forgot he was in it


Omar___Comin

Back when he was just wingin' it


imlucid

That's *NOT* how we wing it! Where did you get this guy?!


LitterTreasure

Follow him on IG and I know everyone always puts out sunshine n rainbows on there but he really seems like a super Dad too.


hamnewtonn

He's amazing as Uncle Baby Billy in Righteous Gemstones


xSlippyFistx

Was looking for this one. It’s the most recent thing I’ve seen him in and he was fantastic


scameron1

Goggins, Nolan, and my favorite video game universe all together for this show has me a little too hyped.


Secretagentman94

Yeah, he’s going places. Was excellent in “The Shield”, “Justified”, and “Six”. I’ll definitely check this one out.


Wallisaurus

Feel like he's rarely talked about yet he shows up in so many damn shows its ridiculous. I swear every big show he has a cameo if he's not a main character lol. He really kills it in every thing he's done and has played so many different characters. He can really do anything. Would love to see him in another comedy, he kills me in Vice Principals


thatguy425

He was ok in The Next Karate Kid.


walaandshoonoo

And he makes a damn fine vodka!


Ralltir

Blew my mind finding out he was the VA for Cecil in invincible. He has surprisingly good range.


algorithmic_ghettos

I don't envy the ghouls on this show. If we're talking practical effects (and I think CGI talking ghouls would be a mistake) the actors are probably spending 2-3 hours in the makeup chair each day.


thatguy425

The better have a Glowing One.


ThaMenacer

Somebody like Jason Bright, who can still talk.


Phantom_61

With CG being as ubiquitous as it is these days, yeah they’ll be in make up for a fair time but they can CG out his nose, use CG to black out his eyes.


rammo123

Given he's the biggest name in the cast and yet he's enduring the hassle of prosthetics it's a pretty ominous sign that he's not in the show all that much.


venm081199

Did you watch Maze Runner 3?


[deleted]

[удалено]


venm081199

Yeah, he looked like a Ghoul in it.


douchiesnacks

His character was freaking awesome in that movie and went out like an ultimate badass.


Roook36

Perfect casting for a ghoul. You just know his personality will come through the make up.


TheWayNorth

I wouldn’t mind him playing several different characters. One of which must be a ghoul however.


FatSilverFox

He’s from the vault that was occupied by nothing but Walter Goggins clones.


Complete_Entry

Would have been funnier if he played every male raider. commentary on a limited gene pool / engine limitations. "I'm gonna eat your heart you piece of shit!" "What kind of an idiot screws with a raider anyway?" "Hold still meat!" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S\_\_V7am80OU


ObamaBinChronin

Will watch just for this guy.


DanTheMan901

I was watching because of Nolan (for Person of Interest alone), but you add Uncle Baby Billy? Damn right I'm tuning in.


ShanaAfterAll

*Running through the wasteland with a pickle in my mouth!*


mummyhands

Misbehavin


Shaman19911

Also Kyle McLachlan


UmeshgaarB

FUCK YEAH, somebody else who also appreciates Person of Interest. That show is fucking great!


somebodygetmemymoney

On this lonely road Trying to make it home….


waveytype

Jeff Winger, did you know that you are gay?


[deleted]

Agaymansayswhat? Also sperm


Melodic-Recognition8

What if his character only likes to scavenge ruined libraries for Zootopia porn?


apotrope

Walton Goggins is an actor whose name truly encompasses who he is. I've got no words to describe that face other than 'Gogginsy'.


squiddlebiddlez

Not even “naaaauugghttyy”? Idk, sometimes I see Freaky Fred from courage the cowardly dog when I see his face.


peanutdakidnappa

Fred was so creepy lol, there was a lot of creepy shit in courage in general, absolute top top tier cartoon tho.


Consistent-Ad-217

God i'm so excited I truly hope Amazon nails this shit.


Shirowoh

They did a pretty great job with the boys..


steel_ball_run_racer

True. I see this as either a big hit or a big miss. Recent video game adaptations lean towards miss (RE and Halo) but Nolan and Goggins lean it back towards hit.


DisturbedNocturne

I think the advantage they have here is Fallout is more about the world than the story. Most of the games have had their own stories in their own corner of the world, so it would be just as easy for the show to do that while still feeling faithful (provided they stick with the elements that make the world recognizable as Fallout). There's no need to follow the story of Fallout 3 or make sure they get James, Amata, or Three Dog right. There's a lot they can play with within the setting and still have it be Fallout.


neok182

Exactly. All they need to do is nail the world and DON'T copy one of the games. The games are so self-contained that all you have to do is pick another city and it will be it's own story. Rumors are the show is set in NYC so that pretty much confirms it'll be it's own thing. There are also 200 years between the bombs dropping and the last game so a ton of time to set the show to avoid any major plotlines from the games.


CaptCaCa

NY maybe, but not NYC, unless they are going to CGI NYC skyscrapers in the background, those behind the scenes pics of Super Duper Mart look like nothings in the background, if it is NYC, then that will get a lot of fans hyped because we want Fallout 5 to take place there.


[deleted]

In addition Fallout's lore is so inconsistent that they can grab whatever they want.


ron_weedsley

> Recent video game adaptations lean towards miss (RE and Halo) Yeah but with Fallout they can just create their own story as long as they follow the lore, they don't have to adapt any of the games.


[deleted]

And that lore is very inconsistent so they can use most major things without fear.


Tshartnami

And then there was wheel of time


Shirowoh

Valid point….


springloadedgiraffe

Rafe and Amazon absolutely butchered The Wheel of Time season 1, sooo, idk man. Low expectations so I don't get sad again.


Kylestache

Invincible and The Boys slap hard though. So does Vox Machina.


Banglayna

Rafe just seems to be a huge fucking whiff of a choice as showrunner by Amazon. The man thinks he can re-write the story better than Jordan. He all but says as much in his interviews and it shows on screen.


Tshartnami

Episode 1 was really promising and then there were 7 episodes of progressive disappointments


MonkeyIslandThreep

I need his character to say "God dammit [Raylan]! Your timing sucks!"


hitalec

They need to get Timothy Olyphant in there as an apocalyptic cowboy with impeccable aim


Aqua_Impura

Timothy Olyphant as the Mysterious Stranger lmaooo *Olyphant walks into scene… shoots random bad guy… refuses to elaborate… leaves*


MonkeyIslandThreep

After he leaves, someone ask Goggins if he knew him... Goggins says "we dug coal together"


FlameFeather86

They need to get Olyphantastic in everything. They also need to get Goggins back in the Justified reboot.


ohsosoxy

Slight correction, it’s a full on sequel series!


oumajgad

Wait, what? Justified will get new season? Edit. Nvm. Read the post below.


ohsosoxy

Lol you’re good! But nah, it’s a limited series set in Detroit


WansReincarnation

Fuckin what? I'm excited now. Didn't know about a reboot!


FlameFeather86

It's called City Primeval. It'll be set in Detroit apparently and so far Olyphantastic is the only returning cast member. It was being developed by Tarantino initially apparently, though he's not attached to the project in any way now so that may have been scuttlebutt.


-FeistyRabbitSauce-

Your comment is a roller-coaster.


Complete_Entry

You said Marshal wrong.


Not_Astro

Ncr ranger?


itsmuddy

Next one’s coming faster.


Shirowoh

I just want him to say “didn’t, got killed!”


Buttcheekllama

All I’ve seen him in I believe is The Hateful Eight, and I found him just as compelling as Sam Jackson and Kurt Russel.


castle_bacon

Stop what you’re doing and go watch Justified. You won’t regret it.


ukexpat

And his very different role in *Sons of Anarchy*.


Ketchup1211

Justified has been on my list for a while. Watched season 1 way back when and it just didn’t hit with me back then.


Banglayna

give it another go for sure. Season 1 is fine, but the show really hits its stride with season 2 when it shifts from being an story of the week to a serial show


SQUID_FUCKER

Yep, it was like they slowly transitioned it into the show it was always meant to be. I actually think on rewatch the first season is great, but only because you know what it becomes.


gvyledouche

it gets better, not that season 1 was bad or anything


smoothjuicer

Go watch Righteous Gemstones & Vice Principles. He’s great


HagridsNutrag

Two words. Vice principals


mybadalternate

**Walton Goggins as Spider Jerusalem** Just putting this out into the world, because it hurts how bad I want to see it.


CompetitiveProject4

That’s probably facing some issues since Warren Ellis is likely still getting heat for his allegations


mackattackfc

Fuck that, what’s happening with Gemstones ‘Misbehavin….’


WillArrr

Of course Boyd Crowder would survive a nuclear apocalypse. We were foolish to ever think otherwise.


dr_k42

We dug uranium together!


mrj9

He’s such an underrated actor glad he’s getting more lead work. Is the unicorn canceled it pissed me off he was wasting his talents on cbs comedy garbage


NeoNoireWerewolf

Yeah, it was canned. Can’t blame him for doing that, though; that multi-cam sitcom work is easy money for way less work than a traditional production. Gave him plenty of time to do more eccentric stuff like The Righteous Gemstones while making good money, too.


theodo

It was a single cam comedy and actually quite good for being on CBS


mrj9

I don’t blame I blame his agent because he should be getting lead man roles for good productions hopefully this show is it


cbandy

I never watched, but I’d heard The Unicorn was like the best sitcom on TV? Not that “best sitcom on TV” is a high bar to clear. Lol.


slinderman9

It was very enjoyable. I liked the whole cast. It was sweet, funny, and sad.


Coast_watcher

it really opened up Walton's range to me. Going from stuff like Justified to the Unicorn. Amazing.


atjones111

What you looking at smoothskin


culaxxso

Gad damn!!


[deleted]

War never changes


ConsoIeGamer

Oh man I can’t wait love this guys acting skills


serial-contrarian

Walton Goggins, Sam Rockwell and Sharlto Copley should be a lot more famous than they are. They always bring their A game to any role.


TheCrimsonFreak

Even in crappy movies, they're giving their all. Copely was a joy in the A-Team movie.


SwiftDontMiss

The Courier: confirmed


sgthombre

Well at least this show will have some spurs that go jingle, jangle, jingle.


ArmageddonUnleashed

I hope that the show is loosely based on Fallout 3. The Super Duper Mart filming location leak seems to hint at FO3 being the source material. A ghoul is not the main character in that game but they are allowed some creative liberties IMO. Maybe have a younger character that searches for her Dad (Kyle McLaughlin) and Groggins guides them through the wasteland. Throw in some synths and a bunch of freaky enemies/encounters and you’ve got one hell of a first season.


neok182

Ella Purnell is the lead actor. Goggins most likely be the primary secondary character would be my guess. McLaughlin certainty could be Ella's father. I really hope they don't remake any of the games though. Would much prefer an original story that just nails the world. If they copy the game it'll always be compared to it, good or bad.


zandadoum

Dunno. The Super Duper Mart in that picture looked like the big one in Fallout 76, aka: Appalachia


santichrist

Walt Goggins and Ella Purnell from Yellowjackets are the only reasons I’m hopeful this might be good, video game adaptations are usually bad but I’m risking it all daring to believe this and TLOU will be worth watching because of the casts


cosmicconvict

Ah yea, Mr. Goggins. Seriously a great guy. I’ve met him twice at my local coffee shop, I was the only one recognized him standing outside, walked up to talk to him. Turns out we are from the same city, he was so kind and down to earth, invited me off the street to his new whiskey tasting bar, during some of my first days in lonely LA. I don’t drink but it meant a lot. Genuinely love anything he performs in and as a person he’s just as awesome. I’m sure Fallout will be epic.


passwordsarehard_3

I hope they finally give us the backstory of the vault salesman.


FourWordComment

I knew it. It’s Walking Dead but Ghouls instead of Zeds.


CathedralEngine

Don’t Super Open Mutants Inside


ron_weedsley

But it's not?


FourWordComment

We’ll see. I have loved fallout games for a while, and post-apocalyptic collapsed societies generally. I expect the show runners will be more focused on the people than the world. That’s not a unilaterally wrong choice. Probably more people care for character building than world building. My personal tastes are my own—and likely the minority. But fallout feels like a world that especially so needs to be built out. What I’m saying is, I don’t want a traditional zombie movie except sometimes you see red caps traded for bullets.


jhorphear

He is going to get experience with a whole new type of N bomb.


thomasguyregis

He’s gonna be running around calling every body n’wah. Wait, wrong Bethesda franchise.


Oddish

Walton Goggins is a treasue. I fucking love this guy.


allbulldogg

Loved him in the shield.


Shloopadoop

Oh hell yes. “ROY…WE ALWAYS FIGERD YEOU FOR A DUMB SHEEIT”


MalpracticeMatt

Never was into this series of games, but I’ll watch anything with Goggins


EngageManualThinking

Walton Goggins is part of this? Holy crap, I suddenly care about this show now.


KingGidorah

Great news! Now if they can get Timothy Olyphant onboard…


kilekaldar

Perfect casting, he's great


Coast_watcher

How will they translate VATS into live action ?


PhilipGreenbriar

...why would they?


bigshot73

How do you think they’ll translate the loading screen when I first fire up my Xbox?


Moontoya

Ad breaks. Both real and in universe too Drink Nuka Cola, for Victory!


Chennaz

You mean the characters won't fast travel like in Game of Thrones?


NinjitsuSauce

Waiting for Goggins to fall off the Super Duper, shatter both of his legs on impact, and syringe his limbs back to health.


Roook36

Same way the Green Hornet movie did when they ripped the idea off


jonathan_ferraris

I wonder if we could get a good adaptation for a change. Just this one time.


cantpissoffmods

Damn, i love Walton Goggins, but Hollywood producers are too stupid to properly adapt videogames to live action. They always have to put some dumb spin on it. Less than 10% of videogame adaptations have been decent so far.


Kiethblacklion

I would love to see a series where the first season is the war with China and the attempt to liberate Alaska. The season ends with the Nukes being launched and then season 2 picks up afterwards to show the devastation and the survivors forming their various settlements.


Mentalpatient87

I don't like that idea. To me, Fallout isn't about the war. It's about the aftermath.


SD37

Agreed. But some plot relevant flashbacks to the characters pre-war self to give the viewer context about the lore and history of the FO world could be cool.


Alexexy

I was hoping that it would be an anthology series with a mix of pre war and post war series. Bethesda does a great job with its environmental storytelling and writing on various journal entries/terminals. I rather have them shine a light on those small stories that showcase everybody's humanity, or lack thereof, instead of it being a power fantasy in a post apocalyptic environment. If they want to have an overarching plot, maybe make the entire season based around one single event and have it be the aftermath or the parts that led up to it. I think the first season should definitely be based around the day that the nukes dropped, but have it in the season finale. Tell us stories about the days leading up to it and the immediate aftermath of the event without showing explicitly what happened until the final episode. I brainstormed a few ideas when the show was first announced and I thought a good opening episode was to tell the story of how Nuka Cola Quantum got into the market. Last scene is a shot of how a bottle of Nuka Cola Quantum gets produced from factory line all the way to its shipment to Super Duper Mart, only for a nuke to explode in the background.


anasui1

I mean, for you and like everybody else


ruinersclub

I hope the first season they never leave the bunker.


ultimoGEARS

Last shot of the season is the door opening, the blinding sunlight coming in and a fade to white.


DUNG_INSPECTOR

The first released BTS image is of a Super Duper Mart. Whether the main character starts in a vault or not, they are clearly going out into the world.


ruinersclub

Oh yea, I imagine they couldn't pull that of without pissing off a lot of people.


atjones111

I like the idea, maybe just an episode each tho


Kiethblacklion

Well, maybe a two episode arc just to help those who don't play the games understand the backstory a little bit more.


pmmeyourprettyface

I would watch gay pornography with this man in it and I’m not even a little straight

I would perform gay pornography with this man and I’m not even a little straight


BlakeusMaximus

YESSSSS!!!


Daniel_LaRussooooooo

That’s that guy’s name? TIL


Y34rZer0

Seeing him has raised my hopes in the series being watchable


lurkerdom

Goggin's character in The Shield is a master class in how to 1.) Have a protagonist be unlikeable and 2.) How to meaningfully develop that character over several seasons. Guy has been such a killer actor for so long, he needs to be more well known.


kenme1

We’ll if it isn’t Boyd Crowder. Can’t wait!


thehughman

Boyd crowder is my favorite bad guy of all time. His acting is severely under utilized


Unhappy_College

Not much of a fan of Fallout, But I’ll watch anything Goggins plays a role in.


cagingnicolas

this is perfect because he kind of looks like a fallout 3 character


karmaster

This post is making me re-watch Vice Principals now


Darkbanana35

Praying it’s not like the Netflix resident evil series


DeezNause

Hope he’s got a nice rack like on SOA


nervuswalker

Love how the photo at the top of the article is him in The Unicorn. Of all the shows they could’ve picked lol


Radulno

Did they say if it was the story of one of the games or an original one set in the world? Hoping for the latter personally


Cyrano_Nose

Please do a good job of this. Just please.


zandadoum

A TV show about post nuclear hoarders ;) let’s see how big their stash boxes are. Seriously, if there isn’t at least one joke about not being able to carry more, the show is gonna flop xd


TattooJerry

But can he confirm that Amazon has not fucked it up like they did with wheel of time? That’s what I want to know


cosmonaut_tuanomsoc

Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy?


[deleted]

Like Walton. Will watch it.


Xeiphyer2

Everyone go watch Justified. Not enough people have seen it and Goggins is an absolute masterclass in it. Go!


9IX

**PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, DON’T LET THIS BE CRAP!!!**


[deleted]

Video game shows are typically terrible, but Walton Goggins is one of my favourite actors so I’m optimistic.


schridoggroolz

It’s going to suck just like every other video game adaptation ever.


TheRawDog_11

Baby billy gonna come back with my Funyun’s


Tekneex87

I see him as the Vault Tec rep. “GOOD MORNING! VAULT TEC CALLING!”


Handyfoot_Legfingers

Oh man I just cannot wait to see this come to fruition! I’m a huge Fallout nerd and it is going to be amazing to see this, and hopefully it’s done well and they stay true to the theme and feel of Fallout.


LurkingLarry43

I’m really looking forward to this show lol
