GOGGINS UPDATE

In addition to its regular function of pop-culture punditry (or whatever-the-hell-I-want punditry), this blog aims to be your one-stop source for news related to our favorite rugged young Southern actor, Walton Goggins. Today's Goggins update is an exciting one! Mr. Goggins has lent his sly, offbeat charisma to a new film, That Evening Sun, which has recently been announced as a competitive entry in this year's SXSW Film Festival. Congratulations to Walton as well as the rest of the cast and crew, which includes star Hal Holbrook. SXSW synopsizes the film thusly: "A ruthless grudge match between two old foes. Lines are drawn, threats are made, and the simmering tension under the Tennessee sun erupts, inevitably, into savagery." Intriguing! That Evening Sun is based on a short story by acclaimed Southern author William Gay. We are familiar with Mr. Gay's reputation thanks to the recommendation of our blogging inspiration (and Facebook friend), hilarious author Jack Pendarvis. So it all comes full circle! That's all for today's update, but keep checking in for all your Goggins needs. (Pictured: Walton Goggins looking pretty stressed out. Hang in there, Walt!)
