Why Mr. Cool Guy From Army Of Thieves Looks So Familiar

"Army of Thieves" drops on Netflix on October 29, and fans of Zach Snyder's zombie films are eagerly anticipating the spinoff prequel to the filmmaker's "Army of the Dead." Featuring likable safecracker Ludwig Dieter, played by Matthias Schweighöfer (who also serves as the movie's director), "Army of Thieves" follows a heist team as they plan to rob a series of high-security safes when the world becomes distracted by the emerging undead. Produced by Snyder and his wife, Deborah Snyder, the movie also stars Nathalie Emmanuel, Ruby O. Fee, Stuart Martin, and Guz Khan as the ragtag party of thieves. In addition to the main cast, viewers might also recognize the actor who plays Mr. Cool Guy.

Portrayed by Trent Garrett, Mr. Cool Guy's given name currently remains a mystery, and it's unknown if we'll find out what it is when "Army of Thieves" debuts. Garrett has had a decent career on the small screen, appearing in several big-name projects over the last decade. 

Trent Garrett got his break on All My Children

According to his IMDb profile, Trent Garrett had a 90-episode stint on the daytime soap opera "All My Children." He portrayed Asher Pike on the popular ABC drama from 2010 to 2011, a role that didn't require the long wavy locks he currently boasts. Asher was a former computer hacker who got into some trouble at college for changing the grades of top athletes. His talents carried over when he began working at Chandler Enterprises as an IT technician.

Asher's parentage was revealed during his stint on the show, which was a mystery for quite some time. It turns out he is the son of Caleb (Michael Nouri) and Sonia — a character who never appeared onscreen. Despite appearing for 90 episodes, Asher was eventually written out, and it was explained that he went back to school. Despite not staying on the series for too long, it was the jumping-off point Garrett needed to land bigger and better roles.

Sitcoms were the name of the game for Trent Garrett

After his successful run on "All My Children," Trent Garrett began nabbing short episode stints on some of the most popular sitcoms on television. In 2016, he played the recurring role of Donovan on "New Girl." As Schmidt's (Max Greenfield) workout partner and a male model, Donovan was a potential love interest for Jess (Zooey Deschanel), but their relationship was over before it started.

Additionally, Garrett appeared in five episodes of "Splitting Up Together," the failed ABC dramedy starring Jenna Fischer and Oliver Hudson. Garrett played Wes, the short-lived love interest of Lena (Fischer). The two have a brief fling which unfortunately doesn't work out.

Garrett also had a one-off appearance on "Kevin (Probably) Saves the World" that same year but also did work in TV dramas like "Hanna," "Carnival Row," and "Lodge 49." It would only be a matter of time before the actor landed one of his most significant roles ever on a Disney Channel series.

Trent Garrett had a long run on Andi Mack

"Andi Mack" was a successful Disney Channel series that ran from 2017-2019 for three seasons (per IMDb). Trent Garrett played Bowie Quinn, the father of Andi (Peyton Elizabeth Lee), who wasn't even aware she was his child until much later in his life. Bowie was always under the impression Andi was the younger sister of his former flame Bex (Lilan Bowden), who lied about her daughter's actual parents.

Once Bowie finds out he's the father of Andi — he becomes involved in her life. Bex and Bowie rekindle their relationship in Season 3 and get married before the series closes out. During the happy couple's wedding, Andi finds out she was accepted into art school, which gives every character a very happy and satisfying ending. Garrett was a part of a groundbreaking Disney Channel series, which marked the first time on the network that someone said, "I'm gay" (via Deadline). It remains one of Disney's most successful series of all time.
