Garret will make an appearance on this week’s episode of Blindspot, which airs on Wednesday (April 5) at 8 pm on NBC. He and his wife did a podcast together and it doesn’t sound like they’ll be sharing any scenes this time around. You can listen to the podcast below.
The Raising Hope and Justified alum will play Travis, an Iraq war veteran who spent years running from his problems and is now suffering the consequences. On a chance encounter with Special Agent Reade (Rob Brown), the two men bond, and Travis encourages Reade not to make the same mistakes.
Elsewhere, Mindy has been picked up for its 6th and final season. New episodes will be released in September so, between that and The Guest Book, which premieres some time in August, there’s a lot to look forward to this summer/fall.
Mindy is back today with a new episode, called “Hot Mess Time Machine.” Garret isn’t in it, but it’s a fun one. You can watch it here.
Elsewhere, it’s less than a month until Amazon releases the second season of Hand of God. From the press release:
Hand of God Season 2 – March 10
Created and written by Ben Watkins (Burn Notice), Hand of God returns with Golden Globe winner Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy), starring as Judge Pernell Harris. The hard-living, law-bending king of San Vicente, “Judge Maximum” has finally hit bottom as he faces trial for the murder of a cop. While his visions and the ghost of his dead son will slowly lead Pernell through a conspiracy that is bigger than he could have imagined, they will threaten his relationship with his wife and everything he holds dear. This season, Judge Maximum must fight on two fronts – to restore his sanity and gain his freedom. Hand of God also stars Dana Delany (Body of Proof), Garret Dillahunt (Justified) and Andre Royo (The Wire).
Just a reminder that you can catch the Mindy season 5 opener, “Decision,” on Hulu today.
And from the looks of it, Garret will be making an appearance in The Guest Book, Greg Garcia’s new show that premieres on TBS in January. Here is a quick description:
The Guest Book is based on fictitious stories Garcia had been writing in the guest books of various rental cabins in an effort to freak out the next renters. Garcia will write all 10 episodes and will executive produce the TV series, which centers on a small-town vacation home and its visitors. The house and cast of characters living in this mountain town remain the same, with each episode featuring a different set of guests renting the house. — Deadline
Garret has been cast as the lead in Monsters of God, a new pilot for TNT produced by Plan B Entertainment. It is a post-Civil War drama written by Rod Lurie (The Contender, Resurrecting the Champ, Commander in Chief), who will also direct it. A few fun details from Deadline:
In Monsters of God, written and to be directed by Lurie, savagery and violence are the cornerstones of Colonel “Terrible” Bill Lancaster (Dillahunt)’s holy war against the Comanche in post-Civil War Texas. Despite the peaceful co-existence between the Comanche and local townspeople, Lancaster sets out on a quest to kill off every single member of the tribe, bringing chaos to the town of Slater.
Vicious, relentless, and a tower of a man, Colonel “Terrible” Bill Lancaster is the newly in-charge leader at Fort Thayer, a military base in Texas that exists to make peace with the nearby Comanche tribe. A fighter for the North in the Civil War, Lancaster’s morals stopped there; he now focuses on the total extermination of the Comanche, a goal in contrast to his orders. — Deadline
Monsters of God is also the silver lining to Hand of God not getting picked up for a third season. The second and last season of that show won’t be released until 2017.
In the meantime, here is a brief synopsis for Wheelman, the Netflix movie Garret is currently filming with Frank Grillo:
Grillo plays a getaway driver thrust into a high stakes race for survival after a bank robbery goes terribly wrong. With a car full of money and his family on the line, the clock is ticking to figure out who double-crossed him, and the only person he can trust is his 14-year-old daughter. — Variety
Here is a pic Grillo posted on Instagram last week:
Wheelman was written by Jeremy Rush, who is also directing.
Elsewhere, The New York Times is reporting November 11 as the release date for Come and Find Me, so we should probably start seeing and hearing more on that front soon.
COME AND FIND ME Aaron Paul (has it really been three years since “Breaking Bad” ended?) stars as a man whose wife disappears. It turns out she was living a double life, so finding her isn’t simple (or necessarily advisable). With Annabelle Wallis and Garret Dillahunt. Zack Whedon wrote and directed.
And The Mindy Project is coming back with its fifth season next week. The first of 16 episodes will be released on Hulu on Tuesday, Oct. 4. Here is a new trailer:
