Neal McDonough recalls his villain role on Justifed

During a brief interview with Variety, Neal McDonough discusses his stint as a villain on the hot FX television show “Justified.” The “Captain America” co-star confessed he wasn’t there to make friends.

“I didn’t even talk to people. I didn’t want that camaraderie. I wanted them uncomfortable around me,” McDonough says. “When I did the first scene with Tim (Olyphant), it was so tense and awkward. He knew, and (director) Jon Avnet knew, we were chipping away at gold.”

Robert Quarles was evil in a suit, coming from Detroit to take over the drug trade from the hicks, described as a carpetbagger with a penchant for torturing male hookers.

The “Boomtown” star has an intense scene with Quarles fulfilling his male pedophile desires with the “rent boy” chained in a bathroom.

“All I was thinking about was brushing my teeth. You’ve got to keep it simple,” McDonough says. “If you try to go too far, that’s when the problems set in. I did the scene with no malice, and it was scarier that anything we could have shown him doing.”

“As people know, there are certain things I’m not comfortable doing,” McDonough says, “but Graham lets me dance around it.”
