Brent Jennings Interview

Interview: Brent Jennings on ‘Lodge 49’, His Long Career and Working Through the “Lean” Times

“You always want to start a character at the moment. If you walk out on stage, you wanna bring with you that moment that happened to you before you walked out on the stage.” – Brent Jennings

Brent Jennings is one of the most recognizable character actors working today. With a resume that includes commercials, theater, TV (Modern Family, Shameless) and film (Moneyball), it’s a sure bet that you seen his always stellar work over the years.

He’s now starring in AMC’s, Lodge 49, about a “disarmingly optimistic local ex-surfer, Dud (Wyatt Russell), who’s drifting after the death of his father and collapse of the family business.” Jennings plays Ernie, a middle-aged plumbing salesman who feels like life has passed him by. He’s a character who he connected with almost immediately. “You get these kinds of opportunities every five or six years, maybe 10, in a career, where something is really special,” he said.

In this interview, Jennings talks about Lodge 49, why he quickly felt a connection to the role, his long career and why he passed up an opportunity to become a school teacher.

Can you talk about your character? How do you like playing him?

Brent Jennings: Well, I love playing the guy. When I first read the script and saw the character, I couldn’t really believe that what I saw on the page was real. And I just got excited about playing this guy who is so multi-faceted, and so three dimensional. There are so many sides to Ernie, but at the heart, he’s someone that I can relate to, being a middle-aged man who feels like his life hasn’t lived up to the hopes and dreams that he had for his life. And he wants to try to, sort of recapture … not even recapture, but capture some of those things and achieve some of those successes before it’s too late.

He feels the clock ticking. I know from his backstory that he had lost his family, mother, and father. He had a relationship that ended up not working, and a child was lost in that relationship, that ended up breaking up the relationship. So he’s alone in the world. And the Lodge is the family that he’s adopted. It’s a place that he has made his … What’s the word I’m looking for? His home, his place where he receives some sort of comfort, a sense of belonging, as he would in a home, or around family, or around close friends. That is what the Lodge has become for him.

He’s at that point in his life where he’s just kind of construct something that makes him feel proud of himself. He’s a salesman, so he’s obviously had a lot more of, I’d say, defeats, than successes as a salesman. He’s had the ups and downs, the roller coaster ride like it is for a journeyman actor, who has seasons where he’s going from job to job and seasons where he just can’t get arrested.

And so, he’s sort of worn out a little bit, but at the same time, he has an extreme vigor, an extreme lust for life. And he’s just going for it with all his might. He’s just really going for what he wants, no holds barred. And I admire that drive that he exhibits in the story as we see him and as we meet him.

So he was just a fascinating character. Not a stereotypical character in any way. A very unique person, just like the show and just like the other characters in the show.

You mentioned backstory. Did the creators give you anything to work from or did you create it on your own?

Brent Jennings: Well, they actually, to show you how thorough and well thought out the show is, they gave each of the regular characters biographical sketches. I don’t wanna say, outlines, but information, on each of the characters, what their past was, where they were before we meet them in the story.

So, there were things that I knew about Ernie going into the first episode. I knew about his experience in the Navy. I knew about his life, his romantic life, his failed marriage, the loss of a child, where he grew up, what the relationship with Connie stems from, where that started.

So I knew all of these things, and like you do in the theater, which is where I’m from, you either make it up yourself, or the writer gives it to you. Because you always want to start a character at the moment. If you walk out on stage, you wanna bring with you that moment that happened to you before you walked out on stage. You wanna know where you’re coming from. You want the audience to see you with some history of where you’ve been. You don’t start anything with just where it starts in the script. So, this is what we use when studying acting. It was impressive because this rarely happens on television. That the characters are that well developed and the actors are given all this information to bring to the table.

You mentioned that you really connected to Ernie. Did you get that when you first got the sides for the audition?

Brent Jennings: I did. I grew up in Little Rock, Arkansas. I’m there now because I have a mother, she celebrates her hundredth birthday tomorrow.

Wow, congrats!
