Walton is clearly riveting in that you wind up unable to get enough of him. He\\\'s the person you always watch on a show with so many captivating talents, \\\"(The Shield)\\\". His Southern roots of pure class, charm and warmth shine through his tough ch
It\\\'s quite a feat to be able to stand out in such a compelling, all around show as is \\\"The Shield\\\". Walton manages to succeed at this. Though fully committing to his hard core character, Shane Vendrell, I personally see a warmth and sincerity shine through underneath all that. The unconditional (platonic let me state!)love between he and Vic Mackie and their rocky, perilous relationship warms my heart.
I must say, personally he seemed to have \\\"Scorpio\\\" written all over him, as I am one myself, it easily resonated.
To read some basic trivia and find out he is a charming, Southern gentleman raised in a househole of women with a passion for interior design and lighting completely increased his appeal to me.
So, Walton, wherever you are, ironically it hit home to read your quote of how lighting greatly effects you, as my personal quote to the keys to life are such: 1) Timing. 2) Lighting!.
Best known for playing a redneck, racist, dirty cop on "The Shield", Walton hasn't shown me anything. The Shane character is very one dimensional to begin with so I don't see anything impressive at all about his acting work. If anything it's an easy gig since this character is always lying, stealing and being annoying all the time.
I'am surprised the character his played has lasted so long but thus the appeal of the show is watching characters that you hate eventually get what they deserve.
Anyhow, the guy is nothing special and nothing to write home about.
