Tim McGraw just posted this on youtube and Twitter.  We’ll have to wait and see if Garrett takes the challenge – he has 24 hours to respond.  For those of you not familiar with The Ice Bucket Challenge, it’s being used to raise money for ALS, aka Lou Gehrig’s Disease and it’s become viral these last couple of weeks, raising millions of dollars for the ALA Association.

‘Calvary’ Director John Michael McDonagh In Talks With Guy Pearce For Next Film ’War On Everyone’

The U.S. may have a few more weeks to wait before “Calvary” opens on August 1st (our review is here meantime), but we were lucky enough to get to meet the director, John Michael McDonagh, of “The Guard” and “brother of playwright and director Martin” fame, at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. A lot of what we chatted about was more germane to “Calvary” and so we’ll save that up for a date closer to August, but McDonagh was also extremely forthcoming about the other projects on his horizon, and included a little bit of new casting information for his next directorial outing “War On Everyone.”

As reported earlier this year, Michael Pena and Garret Hedlund are attached, and the film will be “shot hopefully in Texas or New Mexico, about two corrupt cops who go around blackmailing criminals and ripping them off. And they eventually cross a criminal who’s more dangerous than they are…or is he? So it’s ‘The French Connection’ but with more jokes,” explained McDonagh.

Fifteen Ways of Looking at Garrett Hedlund
A Heartfelt Unpeeling Process

 

I

The blackbird whirled in the autumn winds.
It was a small part of the pantomime.
—Wallace Stevens, from “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird”

II

It’s good to have Garrett Hedlund standing next to you upon discovering a brunch reservation is required and no brunch reservation has in fact been made. They’ll seat you anyway. You can brunch anywhere.

III

Perhaps best known as the face of the Tron sequel, 29-year-old Garrett Hedlund is that strange and beatific embodiment of Hollywood lore, the flesh-and-blood protagonist of an old tale, that of the dreamy Midwest farm boy with stars in his eyes, looking to make good on big-screen aspirations.

At 14, he left his father’s remote cattle farm in Wannaska, Minnesota and began heading west. First, to his mother’s digs in Phoenix, Arizona, where, over the next couple years, he became an unabashed cold-caller of agents and managers, repeatedly taking the ninety-minute flight to Burbank for any audition he could get.

Then he swam out to the deep end—drove to Los Angeles. Within two weeks of moving, the script for Troy fell into his lap. All that paddling apparently paid off. Rather than sink or swim, Hedlund seems to be coasting on a deluxe inflatable with built-in beer koozies.
