Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • 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.

    • Garrett: (on his musical tases, and Four Brothers) I was a big fast Outkast before Andre joined the film and I was very excited to work with Andre on this; to work with a great cast and a great director and I feel very fortunate.

    • Garrett: (on his character Murtaugh from "Eragon")There's something about Murtagh that lies under the surface... Murtagh has a secret and a past he's not necessarily proud of.

    Garrett Hedlund has always prayed troubled characters, with the exception of Georgia Rule, where he was a fateful Christian. Along with his role in Eragon , however it is highly speculated that Murtagh was abused. However in everything else he was beaten, or killed violently. Regardless in everything he does he researches his role properly to better understand what he is doing. For Eragon he read the books, and for Troy did research along with like minded tasks for his other movie roles. Though all this characters have been similar they are all very different too. Patroclus in Troy was a periodic movie, and he trained extremely long days in different fighting tactics. Friday Night Lights made sure he was very good at Hockey. Which came a little handy for a few scenes in Four Brothers. In Eragon his sword training came back into play. And in Death Sentence he had to sport a shaved head [Skinhead] for the whole move, and was completely unrecognized by viewers when he went to the premiers for all the showing of it. However Garrett Hedlund is an amazing actor but is very low key about his personal life. The main reasons he's never on any talk shows, and doesn't like doing a lot of personal appearances for most things he does. He doesn't like the spot light. Much like the late Heath Ledgermoreless
