Deadline reports that Garret has joined Ron Perlman in Amazon’s new pilot, Hand of God. I guess he really wasn’t kidding when he typed this. The pilot was written by Ben Watkins (Burn Notice) and directed by Marc Forster (Monster’s Ball, Stranger Than Fiction, The Kite Runner, World War Z).
Here is what it’s about:
It centers on the powerful Judge Harris Pernell (Perlman), a hard-living, law-bending married man with a high-end call girl on the side who has a religious awakening and starts having visions and hearing voices through his ventilator-bound son that could be God speaking to him. Dillahunt will play KD, a young man who went looking for religion to cure his raging temper. He thinks he’s found God, but he is still a sociopath, and his temper is still raging. Pernell (Perlman) is a godsend for KD, as he gives him an intense singular focus, and an outlet for his violent tendencies. — Deadline
