Garrett Hedlund Lands Title Role in Upcoming Drama 'Burden'

Garrett Hedlund tries to keep a low profile as he takes care of his to-do list on Wednesday (September 28) in New York City.

Earlier this month, the 32-year-old Tron: Legacy actor was spotted going out for dinner and drinks with Diane Kruger in the same city.

It was recently announced (via Deadline) that Garrett will be starring in the upcoming drama Burden as the title character, Mike Burden.

The film, inspired by true events, tells the story of an orphan raised inside the Ku Klux Klan who attempts to break free when the girl he falls in love with pleads with him to escape so they can find a better life together.

Set to begin production soon, the movie also stars Forest Whitaker, Tom Wilkinson, Usher, and Tess Harper.
