Moving from abs to Southern charm, dance moves to pure, unhinged intensity, the History channel has replaced Joe Manganiello with  Justified and The Hateful Eight's Walton Goggins in its upcoming Navy SEAL drama series Six. The eight-episode series tracks the lives of a group of SEALs after a 2014 attempt to eliminate a Taliban leader goes awry. Goggins will play Rip Taggart, a former squad leader who now works in Africa, protecting a small village from Boko Haram and probably spitting out witty Southernisms along the way. Revenge's Barry Sloane, Kyle Schmidt, Edwin Hodge, and Dominic Adams fill out the rest of the cast. If any of them asked you, "Hey man, you wanna fight?" You would do best to huddle into a defensive position and creep away.
