Walton Goggins On GI Joe Retaliation [Updated]

Walton-Goggins-GI-Joe-Retaliation
I am ROGUE has posted an exclusive interview with Walton Goggins, who plays a supporting role in GI Joe Retaliation. He's one of the comic reliefs:

What can we expect from your role of Warden Nigel James in G.I. Joe: Retaliation?

Goggins: Funny.

Are you the filmís comic relief?

Goggins: I'm one of the comic reliefs, yeah, absolutely. He's got some really good one-liners and we were able to go off script a little bit and improvise some stuff with director Jon Chu. It's just a visual extravaganza, it's so much fun, and it's a really good movie. I've seen it and I'm really excited for it to come out.


Update: Walton Goggins shared some more info with Crave Online:

Iím also really looking forward to G.I. Joe: Retalliation next year. Do you have a good character in that?
Great, man, itís a great character! Itís great! I play the warden and itís just so much fun. John Chu directed it and Lorenzi [di Bonaventura] produced it. Everybody involved, Channing and The Rock, itís just a visual extravaganza. I get to just make people laugh.

Were you involved in any of the reshoots earlier this year?
No, no. Everything that I had done was there and in the movie. No need to do reshoots for me.

Did The Warden have an action figure back in the day?
I donít know. Weíll see what happens but I donít think so. I donít know that he is capable of jumping the way that the other action heroes are able to jump in a G.I. Joe movie. Maybe if you had an action figure whose special skill was walking.

Are you looking forward to seeing Goggins in Retaliation?

Hicks_Royel:
... This is smelling like Cowboys and Aliens.
Kaboomskie:
are we gonna get an action figure of this guy?
Falcone:
Never even heard about this character until now.
percehonson:
I remember seeing some greeting card where it had some guy in an air filled suit that said something like "He liked his farts so much he invented a special suit to sniff them". I think Walton Goggins would be a good name for that fart sniffing man.
ssgjasonw:
I'm looking forward to seeing him in the movie. He was great on The Shield and on Justified, so he should be good in Retaliation, IMO.
GI Joe Eternal:
Click that photo of him.

He holds a gun like a girl scout. The comic relief is already working.
Kujo:
Comic relief is absolutely unnecessary in my opinion. In a movie that I take seriously, I don't want shitty one-liners or nickel jokes.
neapolitan joe:
Welcome to You too Mister Goggins...

Yes we will, but you will have to use your imagination because the packaging will say the figure is and looks like Storm Shadow, Duke, Snake Eyes or Road Block.
RogueReSCuE:
He was great in The Shield
Troops of Doom:
Yeah, he did a fantastic job in The Shield. On the other hand he was very disturbing in Sons of Anarchy.
Deftones1982:
Never heard about this actor. I asume his role isn't that big?
atomatron:
the fact he is in it at all tells me...bomb
MB Ferret:
I don't expect much out of him in Retaliation.

That said he does a nice job on Justified.
Cobra Terrorist:
"ONE of the comic reliefs"?

So, now were gonna have The Rock, Bruce Willis, Channing Tatum, this guy (and probably others too) all cracking one-liners constantly throughout the movie?


Great.

Have you seen Justified...no...well he is pretty hardcore in that, but this may come as a surprise he is acting in this and that so we have no idea what he is like. Oh yeah girl scouts don't carry guns.

Owner of a Lonely B.A.T.:
Oh my god the Joes have been slaughtered....WHA-WHA-WHAAAAAAAA.

The film revolves around Moe-block, Curly Eyes, and Larry Duke...and mainly revolves arounf them trying to get Moe-block out of a well he fell in.

Why?
He has one of the main characters on The Shield and Justified, and both series are great, and his characters are the reason.
I highly doubt taht the movie "bombs" because he plays a secondary character.

Great.
I guess you didn't saw The Avengers. Most idiotic longest list of cracking one-liners.

Actually I did see it! I thought there was a little too much of that in Avengers too. I guess I'm a grouch, lol.

I just shot water out my nose, lol.
Troynos:
Am I looking forward to seeing him in Retaliation?

No, because he's a bit part.

He's a good actor, like what I've seen from him in Justified, but I doubt his role will make or break Retaliation.
alcoholic ewok:
won't be as funny as his role in Django Unchained

"Comic" and "relief": two words that, when used in conjunction, strike terror into my heart if associated with a film I plan to see...

IMO it is necessary to have funny bits in movies like this.
Case in point the new total recall which sucked did not have any humor in it what so ever. but u look at Arnies one there are one liners all over the place and it adds to the movie.

Great.
I approve of Bruce Willis one-liners
Python_Puckman:
And I guess this means that Wayans gets all blow'd up. He was the "supposed" comic-relief of ROC
Stuart_Selkirk:
I'm not sure if I should be happy about the appearance of yet another clownish character in a GI JOE movie.
As if Wayans wasn't enough...
