DUE SOUTH "Heaven and Earth" (TV episode)
A homeless mans visions provide a lead in the case of a kidnapped college student.
Garret wants to help save the girl, but also doesnt want to get involved. He struggles hard against the pain his gift has brought him. Ultimately he chooses to help.
Very powerful performance. The scenes in the interrogation room with Agent Ford, then with Fraser, and feeling the ransom note with the back of his hands, are great; also the big speech, and the scene in the pit when Fraser reachs down to him.
The whole show is excellent. IMO, this is the best TV role JB has had since Wiseguy, and provides ample opportunity to showcase his talents in an unusual role for him. Well worth watching.
JB got the chance to act with his old friend Davis Marciano in this episode. Years before, he suggested David for the role of Lorenzo Steelgrave in Wiseguy, which was Davids first television role.
Cold-climate street people clothes. He has a red watch cap.

"Id like to help. I have something about the girl."
"You dont understand. I wasnt there. I just see things."
"What I feel doesnt help people. I feel them. I feel them until they crush me. Other peoples lives, other peoples pain. I dont know whether its me anymore... I let them in and they swallow me until I feel like Im suffocating. I dont want their pain anymore. I dont care. I just want them to stop."
(About Diefenbaker, Frasers deaf wolf) "Good listener."
