Insider: In addition to those films, you also have a role in Looper which looks to be, pardon my french, a massive mindf*ck.
Garret: [laughs] I hope it is a mindf*ck – I loved this experience a lot. I’m incredibly jealous of Joseph Gordon-Levitt – he’s just so cool and together. I wish I was as cool and together at that age. Plus, he looks incredible in the makeup — but he had to drink shakes all the time because he couldn’t eat with the makeup on. But he’s so good and Emily Blunt is amazing. I mention them because those are the two I worked with.
Insider: Who do you play in the movie?
Garret: I play Jesse, who is one of the “Gatmen” – they’re the dudes in the long black coats that are the enforcers for the bad guys. I’m hunting Joseph’s character when he messes up and breaks the rules, which allows me to the baddest of the “Gatmen.” I had the real leather coat, just so you know – which was not the best in New Orleans heat [laughs], What I like about the characters in this film is that there’s no white hats. I’m just a guy with a family trying to do his job. I don’t want to get hurt, I just want to find him and go home.
