The Hollywood Reporter had a brief announcement about Garret joining Keep Hope Alive the other day.
Garret Dillahunt has landed a co-starring role on Greg Garcia’s comedy pilot for Fox, “Keep Hope Alive.”
The show centers on Jimmy (Lucas Neff), a 25-year-old man raising an infant with the help of his quirky family after the mother of the baby, with whom he had a one-night stand, ends up on death row.
Dillahunt will play Jimmy’s dysfunctional father and boss, who is not thrilled to find himself a grandfather and worries that the baby might carry her mom’s homicidal gene.
Last week, they were looking for a couple of teens to play the young Garret and Martha Plimpton. [JaxObserver.com]

Just a heads-up to those living in or near New York – Last Pictures will screen three of their short films, including One Night Only, at the SVA Theatre on Saturday, November 14. For all the details, go here.
Last Pictures has released the trailer for One Night Only, the short film written and directed by Chadd Harbold, starring Garret, Kristen Wiig, Amy Seimetz and Brian Petsos. The film was shot over a weekend in mid-August in New York. Click on the picture below to see the trailer.
Okay, the film news, finally. Garret has several projects lined up, two of them in the very near future.
First up is One Night Only, a short film with Kristen Wiig, that starts shooting one of these days in New York.
The mystery project, Oliver Sherman, is a psychological thriller written by Ryan Redford that goes into production in September in Toronto. Garret will play Oliver Sherman, a “damaged soldier who seeks out an old platoon buddy and his wife and tries to put some demons to rest.” Molly Parker will also star.
The third film, still a few months away, is Unbound Captives, a western drama/romance/epic set in the 1860s, written by Madeleine Stowe, who is also attached to direct it. (Interesting story about that here.)
The film is expected to start shooting toward the end of the year on locations in New Zealand and New Mexico. The story follows a woman named May (Rachel Weisz), whose two children are kidnapped and husband killed by the Comanche. She is rescued by a frontiersman, Tom Dearborn (Hugh Jackman), who later helps her search for the kids. Garret will play Jackman’s brother Jack and Robert Pattinson (Little Ashes, Twilight) has been cast as May’s son Phineas. John Toll (Braveheart, The Thin Red Line) will be the cinematographer. Producer Ashok Amritraj recently told the Deccan Herald that they are targeting an early 2011 release date.
