The first time we see Garrett Hedlund in Walter Salles’ film adaptation of On the Road, he’s answering his apartment door—completely naked. And while we all adored Hedlund as an achy-breaky crooner in Country Strong and as Jeff Bridges’ slick hacker son in Tron: Legacy, it’s his Dean Moriarty, the Benzedrine-pumped, woman-chasing protagonist of Jack Kerouac’s largely autobiographical 1957 novel—the defining work of the jazz-and poetry-fueled Beat generation—that will finally make the actor an A-list sex symbol. “You couldn’t not have the camera on him,” says Salles, who cast Hedlund next to Kristen Stewart (as Moriarty’s first wife, Marylou) and Sam Riley (as narrator Sal Paradise) after the 27-year-old road-tripped from his Minnesota farm to the L.A. audition, stopping along the way at gas stations, bars, and strip clubs, and chronicling the journey in a notebook that he read with his assigned lines. “He’s a soulful, affectionate [actor], much more interested in living every single moment than anticipating what he’s going to be doing in two or three years,” Salles says. “He’s not guided by a sense of career.” Or by whether or not this dream role, to which he brings a beguiling ruggedness, will make him a lust object come awards season, a question Hedlund laughs off, saying, “I just hope that people pick up the book and get inspired by this man’s vibrant, rich life.” You’re welcome,book publishers of America.

“The weird balance between good and bad”

Friday, July 6, 2012

My mom and I were visiting her family in New Jersey because my cousin Danielle just got married and the celebration party was the next day. So my aunt agreed that she would take us to New York City, where Lullaby was filming. I had already known of this beforehand and found out more information so we could possibly stop by. The four of us- me, my mom, my aunt, and my cousin Andrew- took the subway to the city. Soon enough we stopped at Bellevue Hospital, where they were filming. We were told it was on the first floor so my mom and I went up there to see if we were allowed to hang around for fan pictures. We were!
