Garrett: (on showing his behind in Four Brothers) I couldn't care less. I am sure I have done other things in my life that have been more shocking.
Garrett: (on his Four Brothers' movie's director) I definitely feel that John Singleton is one of the great passionate directors to work with...He's a great energy to be on set with.
Garrett: (on his Four Brothers' co-star Mark Wahlberg) He treated me with respect and I really looked up to him, and he really sort of played the older brother role around the set too, he was the oldest guy there and the most distinguished actor.
Garrett: (on his film Friday Night Lights) It's really a film that I think touches a lot of people and there's emotion in it and there's brilliant, happy moments in there. I think people will like it – I love it.
Garrett: (on his character Jack and his other roles) Yeah, I have a good time getting roles. I've been fortunate enough to work with a lot of good people to sort of sit back and take from them and learn. It's definitely different characters in those films. This character takes a lot of criticism and half the time I would be looking at the screen and I don't even recognize who that is. So that was fun.
