- Real Name
I suspect Stevens did that deliberately, to keep the Jett Rink character aloof and apart from the other characters (even though he so wanted to be accepted and loved by them )Much as I appreciate GIANT, Dean almost ruins the film for me because of his hammy, method-acting performance which is totally out of place amongst the traditional "Hollywood" performances of stars Taylor & Hudson ( who I thought were absolutely terrific in their roles ). It's not hard to imagine why the characters in the film wanted nothing to do with him. Surprised Stevens didn't direct his performance to be more in line with the tone of the rest of the cast.
