For Australian fans of True Blood’s Ryan Kwanten (who played Jason Stackhouse in the HBO vampire series), it was a double treat when they visited McDonalds in the Darling Quarter restaurant in Sydney on the weekend. Not only were they doing their bit by ordering a Big Mac (for every Big Mac sold, $2 went go directly to the Ronald McDonald House charity that aids sick children and their families), but it was likely that had their burger passed to them by Ryan!

The True Blood star is this year’s Ambassador for McHappy Day and was more than happy to get his hands dirty for a good cause:

I’ll be doing anything in my power to rustle up some money. So whether it’s making some burgers, serving fries, getting on the drive through, carrying around the donation bucket, eating a big mac, I’m willing to do it all.

He also had this to say about the effect visiting the sick children had on him:

You see first hand the effect it has on the kids. It goes beyond [them], to see the mums and dads smile and to give them an ounce of hope.

As well as helping out with McHappy Day, the ex pat Aussie also had some time for interviews. You can view his interview on the Sunrise show below:

He also did a radio interview with KIISFM where he discusses a possible return to his soap opera roots. Currently there is no podcast for this interview, but keep checking back here often and we will post it as soon as possible!

However, you can still donate to McHappy Day by clicking here.

Nelsan Ellis Joins the cast of ‘The Stanford Prison Experiment’

October 19, 2014

The Stanford Prison Experiment is Based on an Horrific True Experiment:

Nelsan Ellis stars as Lafayette Reynolds in HBO's True BloodTrue Blood’s Nelsan Ellis (who played flamboyant Lafayette in the HBO vampire series) will join the cast of The Standford Prison Experiment alongside actress Olivia Thirlby.

Set in 1971, this true story is based on a psychological experiment conducted in which college students were sorted into ‘prisoners’ and ‘prison guards’. The results recorded shocking and sadistic behavior from these students.

IMDb lists the full movie synopsis as:

The Stanford prison experiment was ostensibly a psychological study of human responses to captivity and its behavioral effects on both authorities and inmates in prison. It was conducted in 1971 by a team of researchers led by Philip Zimbardo of Stanford University. Undergraduate volunteers played the roles of both guards and prisoners living in a mock prison in the basement of the Stanford psychology building. Within one day things got out of hand, and the “guards” used unmonitored brute force on many of the inmates. The experiment was cancelled after 6 days instead of the planned 14.

Nelsan Ellis will play a character called Jesse Fletcher, but little else is known yet about what role his character will play in this movie. Olivia Thirlby will play Christina Zimbardo, the wife of Dr. Philip Zimbardo (played by actor Billy Crudup), the man behind the experiment who would later go on to write a book on the psychology of good and evil behavior. Also starring are Ezra Miller, Michael Angarano, Tye Sheridan, James Frecheville, Johnny Simmons and Ki Hong Lee.

Sandbar Pictures and Abandon Features will finance The Stanford Prison Experiment with Tim Talbott and P.W. Hopsidor having written the script. Brent Emery will produce along with Lizzie Friedman, Greg Little, Brian Geraghty and Lauren Bratman. Kyle Patrick Alvarez will direct.

Sounds like an interesting movie. Let us know if you will be watching The Stanford Prison Experiment by commenting below!

Marshall Allman who played Tommy Mickens in HBO's True BloodKen Jeong Made Me Do It tells the story of 22 year old Andy who finds out his girlfriend is cheating on him. This isn’t the worst part about his day though, he then goes on to crash into the back of Ken Jeong’s expensive car!  Feeling sorry for Andy, Ken (who will play himself) takes him under his wing in an attempt to teach Andy how to ‘man up’.

The part of Andy will be played by True Blood’s Marshall Allman (who played shapeshifter Tommy Mickens in the HBO vampire series). The MTV comedy pilot presentation is written and executive produced by Andy St. Clair and Paul O’Toole. Peter Segal will direct. Alongside Marshall and Ken will be actress Bonnie Dennison who plays the role of Molly, Andy’s best friend.

Justin Hires will round out the friends list for Andy. he will be playing a character called Paul, who Deadline described as:

…a ball of manic energy with no filter, a flaky goofball but completely dedicated to his job as preschool teacher.

First Still From Ryan Kwanten’s Latest Movie

October 16, 2014

From Bon Temps to the Voice of Australia’s Blinky Bill:

Ryan Kwanten will voice over Aussie Blinky BillRecently we announced that True Blood’s Ryan Kwanten (who starred as Jason Stackhouse in HBO’s vampire series) was cast as the voice of Australia’s iconic koala cartoon character, Blinky Bill. Now we have the very first movie still from this animated movie – what do you think?

The cast was also announced and it is an ensemble of some of Australia’s best film and TV stars; Toni Collette, Barry Humphries, David Wenham, Richard Roxburgh, Deborah Mailman, Barry Otto and Rufus Sewell. While British actor Rufus Sewell may look like the odd one out, it turns out his father was actually an Australian animator!

Producer Barbara Stephen (from Flying Bark Productions) had the following to say about the new Blinky Bill Movie:

The Blinky Bill Movie will introduce a whole new generation to Blinky Bill and his Australian bush friends. We are so excited that we’ve been able to attract such an impressive cast to the project.

Blinky Bill is based on the books created by New Zealand author Dorothy Ward. Australians have enjoyed the lovable koala in many forms since he was created in 1933, including cartoon strips, on television and even on postage stamps. In 1992 Blinky made it to the big screen for the very first time. This will be the second time he gets the silver screen treatment.

Let us know if you will be checking this out when it hits the movie theaters by commenting below!
