Garrett Hedlund Unleashes His Dark Side in "Death Sentence"

Posted by Fara Kearnes on August 31, 2007 2:35 PM |

HedlundGarrett Hedlund fans are about to be blessed again as the 23-year-old heartthrob returns this weekend to play bad boy Billy Darley in Kevin Bacon's disturbing new thriller "Death Sentence."

Garrett, who had to gain 30 pounds and shave his head for the role, says: “Playing a bad guy is fun. You get to unleash a little bit more, dive into your bad conscience. It’s really kind of therapeutic.”

He recently told an interviewer that he enjoyed going to a local Wal-mart during filming while in full make-up - which included scars and tattoos: "It was a weird experience because in real life I really don't intimidate many people, but when I was made up like Billy Darley, people noticed, people were afraid."

As for his rapid rise in Hollywood, he says he tries not to take it for granted. Garrett graduated early from high school in Scottsdale, Arizona, in December of 2002, and moved to L.A. at 18. He immediately landed a role as Brad Pitt’s sidekick Patroclus in ‘Troy.’

His other movies in the past five years have included “Friday Night Lights,” “Four Brothers,” “Eragon” and “Georgia Rules.”

“When I moved out here my mom gave me a tub of household cleaning supplies and a big box of Ramen noodles. I never had to dig too deep into the noodles, but every now and then I break out a package and cook them up. It reminds me of how lucky I’ve been.”

Garrett's fans can look forward to his first starring role in "Hectic" where he'll play a DJ who has just 24 hours to repay a large debt to a gangster before hell breaks loose.
