Walton Goggins - Boyd Crowder
Timothy Olyphant just oozes cool in this Leonard Elmore adaptation, it’s adapted from his short story “Fire in the Hole”. Olyphant is incredibly comfortable in the role of Givens and his slightly crazed stare fit perfectly here. The character rich locale is populated by all sorts of country folks who range from the clichéd to surprisingly deep. Walton Goggins delivers standout work as the conflicted Boyd Crowder. Character actors abound here and they all deliver fine work. A few of the episodes teeter on the edge of corniness but nothing terribly distracting.
