‘Six’, History Channel: Meet the Cast

Walton Goggins as Richard "Rip" Taggart

Rip has served 11 of his 16 years as a soldier and commanding leader on SEAL Team Six, but his time at war has taken its toll. After he's exiled from the team for "anger and vengeance", Rip cuts his ties with his family and teammates, and begins doing contractor work in Nigeria. But when he's captured with a Nigerian school teacher and her students, Rip must revert back to his SEAL identity to save them. Actor Walton Goggins is perhaps best known for his role in the 2001 film The Accountant, for which he won an Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film. He also played Shane Vendrell in The Shield and Boyd Crowder in Justified. (Getty)
