Jason Aldean Makes Acting Debut in ‘Sweetwater’ – Exclusive First Look [NSFW]
Jason Aldean is making his acting debut in 'Sweetwater,' and from the looks of it, he's playing a pretty tough character. The film isn't in theaters until Oct. 11, but readers of The Boot get to see the star's acting chops a little early in this exclusive preview.
'Sweetwater' stars Ed Harris, January Jones and Jason Isaacs. Jones plays a former prostitute who moves to New Mexico with her husband, where they run afoul of a religious fanatic played by Isaacs, who also played Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter film series. The film features quite a bit of violence and bloodshed as Jones' character exacts revenge on everyone she holds responsible for her husband's demise.
Aldean plays Daniel, a henchman for Isaacs' character. And though he doesn't have that many lines, this clip certainly shows that he has some screen presence, as he looks and seems completely believable as a menacing strong-arm type. The clip also features some strong language that might not be suitable for all audiences.
“I get to shoot a couple of people and I end up getting put down as well in the film,” he explains (quote via Taste of Country).
The 'Night Train' singer was offered a larger role, but chose to take on a less challenging task for his first acting gig. “It’s one of those things where if I do a movie, I don’t even know if I’m any good,” he explains. “So, I may do one and it sucks and I’m a horrible actor, and I’ll never do another one.”
'Sweetwater' was released to video on demand on Oct. 4, and will be in select theaters on Oct. 11.
