    I searched for a thread thinking surely you'd be talking about it but nothing? I watched the pilot and was hooked.

    I wanted to watch it, but I just couldn't see Goggins as a SEAL team member. I should give him a chance but he's so typecast in my mind that it's hard to be open.

    It's almost as if someone had said that Justin Bieber was going to be the new lead singer for AC/DC.

    I'm confused. Typecast as what? I've seen him play a bunch of different type characters and honestly he's really killing it here. Then again I've loved everything I've seen that he's been in and think he has a vast amount of talent.

    Can't speak for RGM1138, but I can understand how Goggins could always be Boyd Crowder to some people. He was so fantastic.

    Glad to hear you are liking the show. I TiVo'd it and am letting it build up specifically because of Goggins. I knew nothing about it but one night came across Goggins on the screen and that made me stop. Turned out to be the pilot. Set up an immediate SP.

    Or Shane Vendrell from "The Shield".

    I've recorded the show but haven't watched it yet.

    My strongest impressions of him come from Cowboys and Aliens and especially Predators. With a sprinkling of Vice Principals. I agree that he's very talented. It's just hard for me to see him as a hero-type.
    In any case, I'm d/l the pilot so I can I check it out. He deserves it.

    Damn, you beat me to it. LOL, once you've seen him in that role you'll never envision him in any other role.

    FWIW, I've been watching SIX from the start and so far it's a keeper.

    I've had a hard time watching it because of all the guide data screwups related to this show: it keeps disappearing from my To Do list no matter what SPs I set. However, after struggles I did manage to watch the first two episodes.

    I'm not sure I'll watch the whole thing; Goggins was definitely the only reason I started it because it's not really my kind of show. But, I'm in for another one at least: it's on a show-by-show basis for me.

    I agree with photoshopgrl; I don't think Goggins has a problem playing this character. In fact I was surprised they used Joe Manganiello; he seems more miscast as this character than Goggins.

    I wonder if that pre-existing health issue was being offered more money to play Deathstroke in The Batman.

    Pretty unlikely, since The Six is long done and The Batman hasn't started filming yet...

    Probably more likely that he just has no energy left after each night with his new wife, Sofia Vergara.

    Ah, so The Six is a mini-series? I literally know nothing about it. That makes sense. I was thinking of him being stuck on a TV show with no time for movie commitments.

    I did see that Affleck dropped out of directing The Batman. A shame. I'd rather him drop out as Batman and direct the movie himself.

    (FYI it's SIX not "The Six"--for SEAL Team 6) It's a limited-run show on The History Channel. I don't know if it's intended to be one-and-done series or if they hope for more seasons. I'd assume the latter.
