Another interview with Garrett, give us some info we already know from previous interviews, BUT also provides new interestings facts about Gary.

Click Read More!. :biggrin:

Posted by Brosa. :cool:

Some other facts:

*Gary says his dad is proud his son got to work with John Goodman — aaawww!

*The “gang” did extensive research for the role by gathering as a “gang” at strip clubs and bars — I am guessing that was really “hard”. :wink:

While Kevin Bacon was absent from the Death Sentence breakfast, we did manage to corral Garrett Hedlund over eggs and … bacon. He talked to us about starring in the movie, his relationships with co-stars Kevin Bacon and John Goodman, how he grew up with guns, and shooting very long action sequences with a lit cigarette in his mouth.

Garrett Hedlund isn’t a household name just yet, but you’ve probably seen him on the big screen at Patrocles in Troy. He played the brash, young cousin of Achilles (Brad Pitt), and is somewhat of a chameleon. He’s also been in Friday Night Lights, Eragon, and Four Brothers. With a shaved head and tribal neck tattoos in Death Sentence, he’s looking to extend that streak. Click on his picture for the audio interview and read the highlights below.

He plays Billy Darly, the son of Bones Darly (John Goodman) and is the older brother of Joe Darly (Matt O’Leary).
He leads a gang of thugs who run a meth lab in an abandoned insane asylum. Sounds like a nice place.
There is a great scene between John Goodman and Kevin Bacon in the movie, where John realizes that Kevin Bacon is after his son … who in turn had killed Kevin’s son.
He’s worked with everyone from Brad Pitt, to Terrence Howard, to Billy Bob Thornton, but his dad was most impressed when he told him he was working with John Goodman. “He finally feels proud of me.”
“I don’t care for working with actors that just come in and read the lines and pretend that the character is them, instead of them the character. A lot of people think that they’re the one to bank off of, as their personality as a celebrity. They feel that people just want to see them. Where I like trying to do something different with each role.”
They did extensive research for the role by gathering as a “gang” at strip clubs and bars, and calling each other by their gang names.
“I had my rifle permit when I was eleven, kids couldn’t wait to deer hunt … even girls. I grew up with an environment of guns. I’ve always used them, and always learned how to be safe with them. If I did something like pointing the gun at the sun or did anything stupid with it, I’d get slapped in the back of the head.”

… or was he talking about himself.. because there was a little pause and silence before he said it, so I don't know if someone asked him a question and then he answered it with that answer

it's hard to believe that garrett might be a virgin, but if he was i't would only make me like him more. i heard he was raised semi -religous so maybe he doesn't believe in pre-marital sex. i don't, and i know alot of people who don't either.

Yeah, he seems very shy Even though he is probably not a virgin. He doesn't seem like the type that just goes to bars all the time and has random sex. At least from what I can tell and I hope not. I just don't personally agree with that kinda stuff.
