Rollin Jarrett Career
Jarrett began his career as a prominent theatre and commercial actor and print model in South Florida.

Jarrett also hosted many nationally syndicated television shows for SportsChannel America, including “Flight,” “American Automotive,” and “Better Farming,” as well as an exercise video called “Boxercise” with world champion boxer Alexis Arguello. Jarrett relocated to Los Angeles in 1992 and began writing screenplays. Laws of Deception, based on his screenplay, was produced into a film in 1997, directed by Joey Travolta and starring C.

Scott Reeves and Aaron Benward, the country music duo known as Blue County, commissioned Jarrett in 2004 to create a script in which they would co-star as brothers in a fictional region called Blue County. The film was postponed as the duo’s music got more popular, and Benward and Reeves used the name for their band.
