2011 Maui Film Festival Rising Star Award. 

The Rising Star Award honors a film artist who dares to dream big dreams and delivers brilliantly charismatic and revelatory performances every time that opportunity knocks.

Garrett Hedlund made an auspicious motion picture debut as part of the all-star cast in Wolfgang Petersen’s TROY, the big-budget movie based on The Iliad, Homer’s epic account of the Trojan War and the bloody battle between the Achaeans (Greece) and Trojans.  Hedlund, who portrayed Patroclus, Achilles’ teenage cousin who aspires to become a warrior, co-starred opposite Brad Pitt (as Achilles), Eric Bana, Orlando Bloom and Diane Kruger.

Hedlund recently completed production on ON THE ROAD opposite Sam Riley and Kristen Stewart.  The film, based on the novel by Jack Kerouac, will be directed by Walter Salles and is scheduled for release in 2011.

Last year, Hedlund starred in two films; TRON: LEGACY for Walt Disney Studios and COUNTRY STRONG starring opposite Gwyneth Paltrow, Leighton Meester and Tim McGraw.

Hedlund was most recently seen in Twentieth Century Fox’s DEATH SENTENCE opposite Kevin Bacon, Kelly Preston and John Goodman; Universal Pictures’ GEORGIA RULE for director Garry Marshall where he starred opposite Lindsay Lohan and Jane Fonda and in the film ERAGON co-starring with Djimon Honsou, Jeremy Irons and John Malkovich.  Hedlund also starred in Paramount Pictures’ FOUR BROTHERS, for director John Singleton co-starring with Mark Wahlberg, Andre 3000 and Tyrese Gibson and Universal’s FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS, directed by Peter Berg and produced by Brian Grazer and Imagine Entertainment.  Hedlund starred as tailback Don Billingsley, co-starring with Billy Bob Thornton, Derek Luke, Jay Hernandez, Lucas Black and Tim McGraw.

Just eighteen when he debuted in Petersen’s epic film, Hedlund was born in northern Minnesota and spent his high school years in Scottsdale, Arizona.  He began taking private acting classes while in high school and took a unique approach to his pursuit of the craft by reading screenplays of older films, watching those films on video and then pretending he was auditioning for one of the roles in the film.  He also spent countless hours reading the Hollywood trade papers at his local bookstore and calling agents in Los Angeles.  He graduated from high school a semester early and immediately packed his bags and headed for Hollywood.
