Justified's Walton Goggins, Boardwalk Vet Join HBO's Vice Principals Comedy

One of Justified‘s major players has already landed his next full-time gig.

Walton Goggins, who plays Boyd on the expiring FX drama, has boarded the cast of Vice Principals, a new 18-episode HBO comedy created by Eastbound & Down‘s Danny McBride and David Gordon Green.

Goggins will star opposite McBride as crafty politician Lee Russell aka one of the titular high school VPs, Shea_Whighamour sister site Deadline reports.

Also joining Vice Principals is Shea Whigham (Boardwalk Empire, currently Agent Carter‘s SSR boss), as the new husband of McBride’s character’s ex-wife.

Are you glad to see Goggins find a new TV home so soon?
