Interview by Rafy Mediavilla, w/ actor Gattlin Griffith from Lionsgate’s movie “Catch The Bullet”. Where we chatted about how western always seem to work, cowboy suits, family & the beard.

This powerful western starring Peter Facinelli (Twilight franchise) shows what happens when you push a good man too far. Britt MacMasters (Jay Pickett), a U.S. Marshal, returns from a mission to find his father (Tom Skerritt) wounded and his son, Chad, kidnapped by the outlaw Jed Blake. Hot on their trail, Britt forms a posse with a gunslinging deputy and a stoic Pawnee tracker. But both Jed and Britt tread dangerously close to the Red Desert’s Sioux territory, which poses a menace far greater than either can imagine.

“Catch The Bullet” Out Now On Digital & VOD, Blu-ray & DVD On Sept 14.


 Criticólogos:

I got to ask you first of the beard, how, how long did it take you to grow the beard? Because he looks so different?

Gattlin Griffith:

Yeah, I have my parents to thank for that. I guess it took me like a month. Probably I showed up there and I wasn’t sure what Mike the director was going to want. So I was just kind of growing it out and apparently, I can play much older with the beard so it kind of just worked out like that.

Criticólogos:

Westerns, They seem to never get old, What is it about this western specifically that drew you to the to the story and to the character itself?

Gattlin Griffith:

Mean Jet is all over the place Is doing everything so. Yeah, I think underneath the genre you know it’s still storytelling. It’s still, I mean, inject perspective about regret and revenge, and I think. The Western as a drawer just allows us to kind of visually see something that helps embrace that a little bit. Just being out on your own, plus the place that we shot was beautiful up there in Buffalo, WY. So I think it just lended itself a lot to being able to kind of fit in that it feels very much like an old Western.

Criticólogos:

I’m glad you mentioned the location, I wanted to talk about the place, I think it was beautifully shot right, but also the place you know lens to itself for it to be to look beautiful. But it wasn’t hot, I mean  for some reason I felt that you know everybody there with everything on was like sweating, orr just going nuts with all the props and everything you have to go through?

Gattlin Griffith:

You know there’s like a connotation of Cowboys being like upset all the time, and they have every right to be, so it’s so hot in those like vintage outfits. Luckily, up in Buffalo, WY around this time last year, on like August last year, iIt wasn’t too bad, but I mean, if you turn your camera anyway, you’re gonna get like a visually stunning shot. So it was pretty easy to shoot up there and make it look good.

Criticólogos:

 I wanna talk about the props and I mean obviously Westerns. It’s just something that you see props all over the place. The whole cowboy suit and the whole everything. Did you manage to keep something from that movie?

Gattlin Griffith:

My dad has been collecting Western authentic gear for the last 40 years in the live show business and in the movie business so all of my outfit was mine that I brought from home, so it was very comfortable to get into it. I tried on like a few different outfits before traveling up there and I kind of decided this is ot. This is the look that I wanted to have for Jed.

Criticólogos:

You work with your family on the movie, your brother. How was it?

Gattlin Griffith:

It’s funny ’cause we never share a scene together, but like we stayed in the same room or conjoining rooms and I really enjoy having you know a comfort there. You know we can kind of come back together and share our days and have some sort of familiarity in this new landscape.

Criticólogos:

I think jed all through the movie, was convince that he is going to get away with it I mean he has this vendetta against the Marshall MacMaster. Did Jed felt that he was going to get away with it?

Gattlin Griffith:

It didn’t matter like that was the only choice that he had. It was live or die behind that choice, you know. So the stakes were that high for Jed, I think it was so personal to him that choice to go after this man Son. He’s going after MacMasters and then he chooses the kid and it just was, you know, a built up of this regret that he had through his life that had to come to fruition in one way or another.
