Garrett Hedlund Interview -- 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 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.

    He is rather charming at this point.
    I saw a interview he did for the Daily 10 on E news you should check it out…
    they asked him about Lindsay
    who he worked with in Geogia Rule
    he played her love interest in it.
    He seems like he doesnt know how to handle interviews yet which is rather cute and seemed to get very nervous when they asked about Lohan he needs more press training but like I said the fact that he is still a bit green is rather charming.

    LOL at #9 and #10. Garrett and Kristen sounds interesting… But I doubt that. Still… I think that their chemistry in On The Road will be so mind-blowingly SEXY! Can’t wait! Garrett looks perfect to me. <3

    Laki Says:

    If he starts dating Kristen Stewart after filming On The Road,he is so off my crush list.
    I’m sure he wouldn’t care one way or another,but still.

    I love this actor since 2005 when I saw Four Brothers even if it is still little known in Europe
    I am glad that thanks to Tron Legacy, the press began to talk (even if I am forced to go on sites in English to know the news
    (Sorry for my English, I’m Belgian)

    lola Says:

    loved this guy since four brothers. He’s rawrrrr handsome….I can’t wait to see him in Tron. And He’s gonna be amazing in OTR, loved that book. Him and Kristen I think will have effing hot screen chemistry(I don’t see them hooking up offscreen though, I could see him being like a big brother instead)….
