Career Highlights

Goggins received an Emmy® nomination and three Broadcast Television Journalists Association (BTJA) nominations for Best Supporting Actor for his role as “Boyd Crowder” on Justified.

Goggins most recently reprised the (BTJA) nominated role of transgender escort “Venus Van Dam” on the FX drama series Sons of Anarchy. The role reunites Goggins with series creator Kurt Sutter who was also a writer on The Shield.

In the last ten years, Goggins has also taken his turn behind the camera. He recently collaborated with writer Adam Fierro (The Shield) on the pilot Gringo which sold to FOX. Goggins’ prior collaborations with his partners at Ginny Mule Pictures include winning an Academy Award® for their short film, The Accountant, which he produced and starred in.

For their third collaboration, Goggins produced and starred in the feature Randy and the Mob, which won the Audience Award for Best Feature at the 2007 Nashville Film Festival.

Goggins and his Ginny Mule partners completed their fourth feature, That Evening Sun, starring Hal Holbrook and Goggins.

The busy actor enjoys traveling the world and has spent time in Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Central America, Morocco and India last spring. Goggins is an avid photographer and has captured many of his journeys on film.
