Garett's first role was a small appearance in the Robin Williams film "The World According to Garp" at the age of nine.

Garett gave a memorable portrayal as Weird Bruce, a radio producer on the highly rated "Frasier". He also had a recurring role on the NBC daytime drama "Days of Our Lives" and was a host for cable TV's musical variety series "Live From the House of Blues", which gave Garett a chance to indulge his love for playing the guitar and drums.

  • Quotes (15)

    • Garett: Actually, it consists of getting up at six o'clock in the morning, six or seven o'clock in the morning, working for twelve to fifteen hours, sixteen hours, going home, sleeping, waking up and doing it again. Weekends are spent sleeping and studying.

    • Garett: I went to high school, I graduated high school in Darien. Darien High School. And then I moved out to Los Angeles, and then to come up here was actually almost somewhat of a throwback to the east coast because it's a little bit colder and it's rainier and there's snow and so it took me a little while to adjust but it's beautiful up here. In Vancouver. This is where we're shooting.

    • Garett: For me, it (his favorite episode) was the pilot, just getting it all started. It was my first big part in terms of being the second lead, so it was a lot of pressure and it was so much fun. The production was so big, I couldn't tell you amount wise what they spent on the pilot. Just the explosions alone and flying to Canada to do it, the whole experience, not only the script itself, the actual experience of shooting was my favorite.

    • Garett: My mother actually had to go in for a parent teacher conference because my kindergarten teacher thought I was a little crazy, because I kept telling her that my father lived in the television set. She thought a vivid imagination was good, but that might be going a little too far. (on his father Brandon being on Sesame Street)

    • Garett: I was a little upset that if that's the way the show was going to end, that I was dead. I mean, that's a drag.
