Win Tickets To Ryan Kwanten’s Movie Griff The Invisible in Sydney

November 11, 2010

Create Your Own Superhero Name and Win!

Griff The Invisible PosterFans of True Blood know that Ryan Kwanten has been a very busy man during his hiatus from the show.  Between movie releases, shooting movies and interviews it is unlikely he has had any break at all. 

This weekend in Sydney, Australia there will be an exclusive in-house media screening of Kwanten’s new movie Griff the Invisibleand you could win two passes to attend!  Kwanten and co-star Maeve Dermody will be at the screening to introduce the film. 

Griff the Invisible is a romantic comedy about Griff (Kwanten) who is an office worker by day and a superhero by night.  His world is turned upside down when he meets Melody who shares his passion for the impossible.  Early reviews are already praising Kwanten for his role saying:

Ryan Kwanten, in an “incredibly strong performance… effortlessly sheds his True Blood persona to convincingly become this low-key, decidedly antisocial character… an almost revelatory performance.” –

It has heart and humour and a touching romance” – Screen Daily

Sweet and spirited with an unexpectedly profound underlying message, Griff had me smiling throughout and, like its lead character, was quietly moving and fully heartwarming in its own special way” –

…surprisingly sad, beautiful story; it’s about the power of connection and being special to someone in a world where uniform blandness and banality are the status quo. Few films manage to communicate this feeling so effectively…” – Robert Bell,

it’s a very cute story, and one of the best movies I’ve seen so far at the festival. Ryan is brilliant, just brilliant. And I find myself both loving and hating him for being both so Good Looking and such an amazing actor. I hope he has like, terrible foot odor, or bad typing skills, or something...”

1)  Become a Fan of Griff the Invisible on Facebook by clicking here

2) Create your own superhero name

3) Write it on the Griff the Invisible fan page on Facebook

Joe Manganiello and Lindsay Pulsipher Heat It Up in South Florida

October 24, 2010

Joe Manganiello and Lindsay Pulsipher Cause Mayhem in South Florida!

Joe Manganiello (Alcide Herveaux) andLindsay Pulsipher (Crystal Norris) made an appearance at the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek on October 16th.  Lines  for the meet and greet were so long people were literally sent home even though both stars stayed later than they were scheduled to!  

Lindsay was asked by if she could give us some hints about the werepanther story line and all she had to offer us was this:

“I wish I could tell you but I can’t!  Alan Ball is so good about keeping us in the dark.  We don’t know until we read the script.”

Lindsay does reveal that it will be action packed and that she hears mention of witches, which goes along with some of the spoilers that we have heard so far.

Joe revealed that Season 4 is going to be a lot tighter storyline wise and jokes that they killed a lot of people in Season 3so there is room for more storylines.

Click here to view the videos with Lindsay and Joe and to check out more photos from this event.

It was a great night for the stars and fans alike and some pretty awesome pictures were taken.  Hopefully we’ll be seeing a lot more of these two in Season 4.

To make matters worse, Sookie has her own troubles to deal with after she learns that the Fairy King has his eyes on removing her from the equation.

Charlaine Harris is creator of the books the HBO series True Blood is based on so be sure to get your signed copy of the latest installment. With True Blood Season Two in full swing – now is a great opportunity to catch up with the Sookie Stackhouse series this summer.
