Jason Turned Down a Bigger Part for His Movie Debut

Jason Aldean's acting debut happens in just a week or so (Jan. 24) at the Sundance Film Festival in the new Western Sweetwater.

The country star tells radio station Country 92.5 in Hartford, Conn., that he'll be playing a henchman for a bad-guy prophet in the film. (Spoiler alert: Jason reveals what happens to his character in the next quote.)

"I'm 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," he says.

Jason at first was offered a bigger part in the movie, which stars Ed Harris and Mad Men actress January Jones.

"But, with it being my first time acting, 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," he said.

"If I was gonna be bad, I wanted to be on the film as least amount of time as possible."
