Walton Goggins (“Justified,” “Predators”) has been set to replace the recently departed Joe Manganiello on History’s mini-series “Six”.
Goggins steps into the lead role of Rip Taggart, a former SEAL Team Six leader who now patrols an African village to protect its residents from the terrorist group Boko Haram. The eight-episode miniseries follows the elite squad on a mission gone awry.
Manganiello’s departure from the project is said to be due to an undisclosed health issue. Barry Sloane, Dominic Adams, Edwin Hodge, Kyle Schmid and Juan Pablo Raba also star.
The Weinstein Company and A+E Studios are producing and shooting resumes late next week.
