Garrett Hedlund Interview -- JustJared.com Exclusive

Garrett Hedlund visits his movie Tron: Legacy‘s booth during Comic-Con 2010 at California’s San Diego Convention Center on Friday (July 23). The 25-year-old actor gave JustJared.com an exclusive interview. Check it out below!

JJ: How does this Comic-Con experience compare to last year’s?

GH: It’s funny. When we were here last year, it was just a week after we had finished filming so we didn’t know what to expect. We knew there was a huge reaction from the year before with the VFX footage. Comic-Con is the whole reason this film exists. It’s because of what [director] Joseph Kosinski did and what he’s shown at Comic-Con. Last year when we did our press conference, before the Hall H panel, there were about 23 people sitting in the room. This year, it was hundreds of people in a board room, so you get to see the growth of anticipation and curiosities.

JJ: How exciting was it to be cast in this film?

GH: It was so nerve-wracking! I had never done a film where I was in every scene all day every day. I always wanted to be a piece to the puzzle, to sort of formulate a great puzzle. I didn’t care to be the whole picture. Maybe I just wasn’t ready for it at that point.

When I was doing table reads with Jeff [Bridges], Olivia [Wilde] and Joseph Kosinski, I started saying “maybe I can do this”.

Once we started filming, I knew it would be a long tedious process, very strenuous and hard at times but incredibly exciting. Its such an exciting experience to be involved with Joseph Kosinski, who I feel is the biggest genius of the next generation.

JJ: Any fun stories from set?

GH: The [glowing] suit fit like a glove! It was tight as all hell, but fantastic wardrobe to wear. We even had to wear a full body harness underneath it to get wired up to do wire work. Then there were shoulder rolls, looking left, looking right, standing up, catching a disc, and throwing a disc. If you were watching from the sidelines, it was quite the show.

JJ: Because inquiring minds want to know, are you single? Dating?

GH: Oh, I’m single. I can’t date! I’m working.
