(griffith joseph burns)

"I love Meridian. It brings you down to earth. The South means a lot to me. I love the sweet tea."

Upon his arrival to Meridian, Dan became Griffith. "It was great to observe," said Purvis. "He was constantly driving around in this white pick-up truck, cranking the country music, and walking around barefoot." Dan has a medium build, with a full-head of dirty blonde hair and deep brown eyes. Dan's immersion into his character was incredible. "I have become Griffith," said Montgomery, "I've spent time in the barn sculpting, driving my truck around, and hanging out at the Echo Lounge listening to Jimmy Rogers."

"Griffith and I share many characteristics," says Tag, "and I couldn't have imagined a better choice than Dan."
