When it was announced that Jason Aldean would be making his acting debut in a new movie called Sweetwater, starring Ed Harris and January Jones, there weren’t many details available about Jason’s role in the movie.  He recently called into Broadway’s Electric Barnyard and explained that he actually pushed for a smaller role in the film than he was originally offered.  Because it was his first time to ever try his hand at acting, when they first presented him with a role, Jason says, “I basically turned that role down and was like, ‘You got something that’s a little bit less of a part?’  I just kinda wanted to try a smaller part, and see if it was something I was even interested in. I ended up taking a role, and it’s got a few speaking parts in it, but it’s not a huge part, which is exactly what I wanted to do. If I was gonna be bad, I wanted to be on the film as least amount of time as possible.”  As for his character in Sweetwater, Jason explains, “It’s kind of a western sort of thing and … Jason Isaacs plays this prophet who is not a very good guy and I’m kind of his henchman, I’m kind of his guy that does all the dirty work for him. I get to shoot a couple people, and then I end up getting put down as well later in the film.”  Sweetwater will make its premiere on January 24th at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
