Thank you so much to Ily from Garrett Hedlund Italy for providing the translation.

Interview with Garrett Hedlund, the new James Dean (but just on the screen)

Just a coffee, thanks
And the cigarette he just lit. He doesn’t need anything else. Though his bloodshot eyes, hidden behind dark sunglasses, reveal an extreme need for sleep.

Look totally black, powerfully built, a rebel look: He’s apparently the new James Dean.

It is not surprising that Walter Salles wanted Garrett Hedlund to play Dean Moriarty, the most restless spirit of the Beat Generation: the perfect guy for OTR.

It is surprising, instead, to find out that he shares just the physical aspect of James Dean, because of his origins (He was born in Minnesota) he will remain a country boy.

“I grew up in a farm miles away from any other city. My father used to say that anyone who might leave the country was not normal. Probably it was his way to tell me: don’t go away from home.”

Rest of the article is under the cut.

Garrett sent me this picture a little while ago. He’s filming scenes today with Terrence Howard. As you guys know, Terrence and Garrett were in Four Brothers and On the Road together, so this is a reunion of sorts.

Huge thank you to Garrett for sharing this with us!

Another great picture from Neal Casal’s gallery

And this one is of Amanda Shires during filming.

Amanda was the fiddler in Gwyneth’s band. She’s a beautiful singer and I’m taking this opportunity to share one of her youtube videos.

Neal Casal appeared in Country Strong as a member of Gwyneth’s band and he also worked behind the scenes as Garrett’s guitar instructor. Neal is also a very talented photographer – he had a book a photography out a couple of years ago called Ryan Adams and the Cardinals: A View of Other Windows (he’s lead guitarist for the band) – and the gallery on his official site includes a great shot of Garrett.
