In 2012, he was interviewed for the documentary The Deliverance of Rabun County and stated that he never saw much money from his role in the movie, and that he was currently working at Walmart.

In 2009, he played the same character again in the film Outrage: Born in Terror. In 2004 he made a guest appearance on Blue Collar TV, playing a car repairman named Ray in a “Redneck Dictionary” skit. He represented the word “raisin bread” (as in Ray’s inbred).

Besides his acting career, Redden has worked as a tour guide for people visiting the filming locations of Deliverance. He has been married twice and has no children. He has kept his private life away from the media and is focused on his acting career.
