Garrett Hedlund stars in "Tron: Legacy," opposite Jeff Bridges, as Sam Flynn, and in "Country Strong," opposite Gwyneth Paltrow and Tim McGraw, as Beau Hutton.

Garrett Hedlund is currently in production in "On the Road" opposite Sam Riley and Kristen Stewart. The film, based on the novel by Jack Kerouac, will be directed by Walter Salles and is scheduled for release in 2011.

Hedlund made an auspicious motion picture debut as part of the all-star cast in Wolfgang Petersen's "Troy," the big-budget movie based on The Iliad, Homer's epic account of the Trojan War and the bloody battle between the Achaeans and Trojans. Hedlund, who portrayed Patroclus, Achilles' teenage cousin who aspires to become a warrior, co-starred opposite Brad Pitt, Eric Bana, Orlando Bloom and Diane Kruger.

Hedlund also played Harlan in Garry Marshall's "Georgia Rule" (2007), starring Jane Fonda, Lindsay Lohan, and Felicity Huffman and Billy Darley in "Death Sentence" for 20th Century Fox.

Hedlund's other screen credits include the film "Eragon," co-starring with Djimon Hounsou, Jeremy Irons and John Malkovich; Paramount Pictures' "Four Brothers," costarring with Mark Wahlberg, André Benjamin and Tyrese Gibson for director John Singleton; and Universal Pictures' "Friday Night Lights," directed by Peter Berg and produced by Brian Grazer and Imagine Entertainment. Garrett Hedlund starred as tailback Don Billingsley, co-starring with Billy Bob Thornton, Derek Luke, Jay Hernandez, Lucas Black and Tim McGraw.

Only 18 when he debuted in Petersen's epic film, Hedlund was born in northern Minnesota and spent his high school years in Scottsdale, Arizona. He began taking private acting classes while in high school and prepared by reading screenplays of older films, watching those films on video, then pretending he was auditioning for one of the roles in the film. Hedlund also spent countless hours reading the Hollywood trade papers at his local bookstore, as well as calling agents in Los Angeles. Hedlund graduated from high school a semester early and immediately packed his bags and headed for Hollywood.
