Country Hunk Makes Acting Debut in Movie
Jason Aldean plans to make his acting debut next month, in the 1800s-set western flick,Sweetwater. The film will include A-list actors such as Ed Harris and January Jones, and Jason admits he was a bit nervous the first time he stepped on set. (Audio) “To go in and step into their world was a little weird. I didn’t want to be thesinger that they’d say, ‘Okay here’s another singer trying to come here and act,’ you know? So I just tried to go in and learn from those guys – that’s really what I tried to do. Even when I wasn’t working, I would go in and watch them work.” Jason will play a henchman in the film Sweetwater, which made its debut at the Sundance Film Festivalthis past January. The singer even appears on the poster for the film, which hits theaters and Video On Demand, on October 11th.
In the late 1800's, a beautiful former prostitute (January Jones: "Mad Men") is trying to build an honest life with her husband in the rugged plains of New Mexico. When she catches the eye of a sadistic and powerful religious leader (Jason Isaacs: Harry Potter series), her life is violently turned upside down. She embarks on a bloody course of vengeance with the assistance of a renegade sheriff (Ed Harris: Pollock, The Hours, A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13) who has pretty violent tendencies of his own.
