Are you the film’s 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:
I’m also really looking forward to G.I. Joe: Retalliation next year. Do you have a good character in that?
Great, man, it’s a great character! It’s great! I play the warden and it’s just so much fun. John Chu directed it and Lorenzi [di Bonaventura] produced it. Everybody involved, Channing and The Rock, it’s 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 don’t know. We’ll see what happens but I don’t think so. I don’t 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?
