Rogues Gallery: Walton Goggins | Billy Crash - Django Unchained (2012)
Billy Crash - Django Unchained (2012)

There’s pre-Quentin Tarantino in an artist’s life, and then there’s post-Tarantino. His passion about what he does will forever influence how I approach my work – and I’m a passionate dude, but his love of his work ran circles around mine. His ability to craft story and scene is fuckin’ invaluable, man! I’ll never be the same.

There were two or three really long scenes that didn’t make the final cut of the movie, where you’d really have gotten to see Billy Crash in the way that Quentin originally crafted him. One of them was between myself and Calvin Candie, Leo’s character, and you really saw the dynamic between them. It was so Tarantino: extremely violent but also nuanced and extremely funny at the same time. Then in the torture scene, which got cut for time, Billy had this really long monologue about how he sees the world and why he’s going to do what he’s going to do. You understood the institution of slavery from the working white-man’s perspective: it was the only corporation in town, and the only way a guy like Billy Crash could secure a place for himself monetarily, through the subjugation of an entire race of other people.

You realised that Billy wasn’t that different from Stephen, Sam Jackson’s character. They were kind of cohorts in holding up this awful institution because they had a vested interest in it. That’s really fascinating. You get a sense of it in the film, and it’s enough, but my experience was even bigger than what you saw on the screen.

1 RE: VENUS VAN DAMME
Was having a marathon of the Bourne trilogy the other week, and I just noticed Goggins plays one of Conklin's analysts in Identity. Small role, but still it was pretty cool to see him in that h, and I can't be the only one who'd love to see a longer cut of Django with all those scenes he mentioned and more. Won't ever happen, but still. More
