Garson appeared in three films from the Farrelly brothers, Kingpin, There’s Something About Mary, and Fever Pitch. Some of his other film work includes roles in John Malkovich, Freaky Friday, Labor Pains, and Out Cold.
Most recently, he was involved in the upcoming Sex and the City spin-off film, And Just Like That.
Speaking about the film recently, he said: “These are And Just Like That episodes…It’s an easy thing to talk about, you know — remake, reboot, they use all these horrible words — and for us, I don’t believe it’s either of those things. It’s new episodes about people that we know and their lives now, which has nothing to do with their lives 10 years ago.”
