The Righteous Gemstones is an upcoming American comedy television series. It is created by Danny McBride and is set to premiere in 2019 on HBO. The series follows a famous yet dysfunctional family of televangelists. Cast also includes Edi Patterson, Adam Devine, Cassidy Freeman, Tony Cavalero, Tim Baltz and GregAlan Williams.
Walton Goggins, who of course worked with McBride on Vice Principals, has signed onto the project. That’s great news, but even better? He’s gonna be dancing. Nothing can top that. He has been previously seen in Justified, Sons of Archery and Conan. Deadline reveals a description that sells this casting news: “Goggins will play Baby Billy, a former child star who clogged and sang for Jesus. As an aging man, he’s fallen on hard times and comes to the Gemstones for salvation.”
Goggins’ dance card is nearly full right now, as it should be. He’ll soon be seen as part of Quentin Tarantino’s vast ensemble cast in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. Goggins also just wrapped shooting the lead role on CBS comedy pilot The Unicorn. Goggins is repped by ICM Partners and Darris Hatch Management and Production.
Let’s hope he dances on each project well, but at least we can plan on watching him team up with McBride again.
