Breakout movie star Jason Collett makes a statement in the upcoming star-packed midwestern gothic drama THE DEVIL ALL THE TIME opposite Tom Holland, Haley Bennett, Robert Pattinson, Bill Skarsgård, Jason Clarke and Riley Keough, written and directed by Antonio Campos (THE SINNER), premiering globally on Netflix on September 16th. Collett is also featured in HBO's hit series "Watchman" in the episode "This Extraordinary Being" episode, the critically acclaimed episode which was just nominated for eight Emmy awards.
THE DEVIL ALL THE TIME, based on the novel of the same name by Donald Ray Pollock, takes place in the 1960s after World War II in Southern Ohio amongst a group of bizarre, compelling and disturbed people who suffer from the war's psychological damages. Collett plays Gary Matthew Bryson, a naïve partner-in-crime to husband and wife team of serial killers, Carl and Sandy Henderson (played by Clarke & Keough, respectively), who troll America's highways searching for suitable models to photograph and exterminate. Executive produced by Jake Gyllenhaal, the dark and gritty film intersects storylines with a sickly and unsettling ability to entangle viewers into its spell. A colorful array of delightfully nasty, dirty and chaotic characters awaits you upon your first watch, and while each person has their own story, characters are inexplicably linked in the most peculiar of circumstances. The highly anticipated psychological thriller is scheduled to be released on Netflix later this year.
Collett has been acting on film and stage for over 15 years and is also a trained stunt professional. His appearances in television include HBO's "Watchmen," in an episode that was just nominated for eight Emmy awards, he's also appeared HBO's "Hung," and NBC's "Chuck." His film credits include "Stay at Condor Beach," the action-thriller "Military State," and the faith-based film "Inheritance", starring alongside legendary actor Robert Miano. Jason also played the lead role of Jamie Nabozny in the documentary "Bullied: A Student, A School, and a Case That Made History" for the Southern Poverty Law Center's Teaching Tolerance program. Jason has studied under some of the most influential teachers in Hollywood, including Alice Carter, Joseph Pearlman, Robert D'Avanzo, Sandra Merril and Sara Mornell.
Collett has extensive stunt experience and has trained in pole climbing, weapons, hand-to-hand fighting, prat falling, bungee harness, high falling and ATV riding. Some of his stunt experience has helped him not only in the acting industry, but he has also dressed up as Spider-Man to visit local children's refugee camps outside of Atlanta, his current hometown, to help bring some simple joy to the children who need it most.
