Date of Birth : Sep 3rd 1984
American actor known for his role in the movie Four Brothers.
Hedlund was born in Roseau, Minnesota, the son of Kristine Anne (née Yanish) and Robert Martin Hedlund. He has two older siblings, a brother (Nathanial) and sister (Amanda). His family then moved to Scottsdale, Arizona when he was in the nineth grade. It was here that Garrett began taking private acting lessons and modeling for LL Bean and Teen Magazine. At school, Garrett participated in track/field, wrestling, & football. Garrett also enjoyed listening to punk rock, and went to various concerts to photograph the bands and their fashions. He enjoys hunting and the outdoors, so when he starred in Four Brothers, he was already pretty handy with a gun. He ended up graduating from Horizon High School a semester early to pursue his acting career. One month after arriving in Los Angeles, Garrett landed the role as Patroclus, the younger cousin of Achilles, in Troy. He currently resides in an apartment (that he bought with the money he earned from Troy) in Los Angeles where he enjoys staying and cooking pasta.
Gained at least 30 lbs. of muscle for the role of Patroclus in Troy (2004), then gained another 20 for the role of Don Billinsley in Friday Night Lights – only to slim back down for the role of Jack Mercer in Four Brothers.
