True Blood Season 7: Ryan Kwanten Talks About THAT Scene in Episode 2

June 30, 2014

What Happens When Alexander Skarsgard and Ryan Kwanten Suggest They Work Together:

Ryan Kwanten (Jason Stackhouse) and Alexnader Skarsgard (Alexander Skarsgard) star in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 2 (entitled 'I Found You')Fans of HBO’s True Blood have heard many rumors about a certain scene that finally appeared in True Blood Season 7 Episode 2 (entitled I Found You). It entailed a certain sex dream involving Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) thanks to a vampire blood healing Eric performed on Ryan in True Blood Season 6.

Well, fans were not let down with this scene tonight!

And, according to Ryan Kwanten, the idea was, mostly, his and Alexander Skarsgard’s:

There was word on the street that a scene was coming, and to be honest, Alex and I had been — not necessarily begging to work together — but we’d been pondering the thought, “What if we were ever put in a scene where it was just the two of us? What would happen?” And this is what our illustrious writers came up with.

While it took a while to set this scene up, the filming of it only took a couple of hours. And most of that time was spent laughing. The scene has been described as ‘elegant’, Ryan was not expecting the scene to turn out that way at all – but he’s happy it did.

But why is Jason all of a sudden dreaming of Eric Northman? After all, it’s been a while since they shared blood – more than six months in fact! Kwanten had this explanation:

Well, obviously, Jason has had these dreams before, with other vampires whose blood he’s had. I mean, Eric’s gotten himself into some trouble, and I think Jason sensed that.

It all makes sense now. What were your thoughts on this scene? Let us know in the comments below!

VIDEO: Ryan Kwanten Gives Us The Rugged Rundown on True Blood Season 7

June 20, 2014

True Blood’s Ryan Kwanten Has a Drink With The Wrap:

Ryan-Kwanten-stars-as-Jason-Stackhouse-and-Chris-Bauer-stars-as-Andy-Bellefleur-in-HBOs-True-Blood-Season-7Fans of HBO’s True Blood often wonder just how much work goes into maintaining a body like Joe Manganiello’s, Alexander Skarsgard’s and Ryan Kwanten’s. Considering how much naked time many of these men have on True Blood, maintaining a ripped physique is obviously important.

This question was also on The Wrap’s mind when they interviewed Ryan Kwanten recently for their Drinking With The Stars segment. For Ryan (who plays the dimwitted but delicious Jason Stackhouse), his exercise regime appears to be a little more obtainable than one might think:

Being an Aussie, I’m much more of an outdoors kind of guy. So any time I can kind of get outside, running, hiking, swimming, all that kind of stuff. So, yeah, I kind of avoid the gym.

So there you have it Truebies, all we need to do is get outdoors and get exercising!

As well as his workout regime, Ryan was quick to point out just how much HBO’s True Blood has changed his life. And even though the recipe for the television series seemed a good one all those years ago, he was still nervous that fans might not be receptive to True Blood.

You can find out what he thinks of the rest of his cast members by watching the full video interview Ryan Kwanten did with The Wrap below:

New Photograph of True Blood’s Ryan Kwanten in Northmen – A Viking Saga

November 7, 2013

Northmen – A Viking Saga Due for Release in 2014:

Northmen - A Viking Saga promo posterRyan Kwanten is probably best known as Sookie’s (Anna Paquin) hot but (mostly) clueless brother, Jason Stackhouse in HBO’s True Blood. As for Vikings, the hottest one we know goes to Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) – but that just may be about to change!

Kwanten is starring as Conall in Northmen – A Viking Saga, due for release in 2014. While technically not a Viking, Conall is actually a Christian monk who likes his sword as much as his Viking counterparts. You can read the synopsis below:

A gang of Viking marauders under the command of their young leader, Asbjörn, bear down on the coast of Britain, intent on pillaging Lindisfarne of its gold. But, caught in a vicious storm, their longboat is dashed to pieces on the rocks off Scotland. Trapped deep within enemy territory, the shipwrecked mens’ only chance of survival is to reach the safety of the Viking stronghold Danelag.

With only the enigmatic Conall, a monk who preaches with his sword to help them, they cut a bloody swath through anyone who gets in their way. But the journey becomes a race for their lives when the King of Scotland sends his most feared mercenaries, the Wolf Pack, after them. Traversing an unfamiliar and hostile land, they are pursued relentlessly. However the hunters become the hunted when the Vikings, eager for battle, set deadly traps and mercilessly decimate their pursuers one by one…

Wow! This sounds good. While the movie is still filming, the principle photography has just been completed. You can check out the first official promo still below.

True Blood’s Ryan Kwanten Talks About His Shark Attack

November 2, 2013

Tune in to The Getaway on the Esquire Network to Find Out More:

True Blood's Ryan Kwanten and Anna PaquinLuck for fans of HBO’s True Blood, Ran Kwanten escaped without harm when he had a run in with a shark when he was a child, otherwise we would never have had the chance to see him bring the role of Jason Stackhouse to life.

But this is no laughing matter, considering many people do not live to talk about their tale, or end up seriously maimed when encountering a shark. Kwanten talks to The Getaway on the Esquire Network about how this chance run in his home country of Australia, led him to train for Surf Life Saving:

I started competing in Surf Life Saving at the ripe old age of 5 back in Australia, which happens to be where the sport was invented in 1907.

Ryan Kwanten will explore Los Angeles in his episode, not only discussing his passion for Surf Life Saving, but taking in all the other sights, sounds and gastronomical delights from this amazing place. The Getaway airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on Esquire Network. You can view a sneak peek of this episode below:

True Blood’s Ryan Kwanten Gets an Extreme Makeover for His New ‘Vikings’ Role

September 15, 2013

Kwanten Will Play the Role of a Christian Monk in Northmen – A Viking Saga:

Recently we announced that Ryan Kwanten (who plays Jason Stackhouse in HBO’s True Blood) will join the cast of Northman – A Viking Saga. There was no news, at the time, of which role he would be playing in this latest movie of his, yet many people were wondering if he would in fact be a Viking. Well, since he arrived at the TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) premieres for his latest movies, The Right Kind of Wrong and Mystery Road, sporting a shaved head, there are now reports that he will be playing the part of a Christian monk! There is no official confirmation on this though, with IMDb.com still not listing the name of his character in the Viking movie.

And with True Blood finishing up with Season 7 in 2014, Ryan told the Toronto Sun, during the Toronto International Film Festival, that he is very lucky to be employed in a career where 99% of actors are unemployed or struggling. He also had this to say about being an actor:

In terms of being an artist and being able to express myself physically and emotionally, I think it’s such a real liberation. In a weird way actors are these eternal kids. We get paid to play out this innocence, and our emotions. And quite often in ways we wish we could in real life.

It’s a great thing that a talent such as Ryan Kwanten is still in the limelight and with so many movies of his coming up in the near future, I don’t think we have to worry about that light dimming just because True Blood is coming to a close!

Ryan Kwanten stars as Jason Stackhouse in HBO's True BloodNo, Jason Stackhouse is not teaming up with Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard)!

Dietrich Daniel Hoeltschi, Marco Del Bianco, Frank Kaminski, Ulrich Stiehm and Rolf Wappenschmitt. Deitrich had the following to say about the movie:

Northmen – A Viking Saga is a film that is close to all of our hearts.  It tells a timeless story of courage, camaraderie and adventure, with exciting historical roots that have stimulated significant, and ever increasing, interest in the last few years. This is an epic and ambitious project but we could not feel more confident about the cast and crew that has come together to bring the story to life.

Kwanten is currently on location in Brazil (for the movie Rio, eu te amo), but once that is over, he will head to South Africa and Germany where filming for Northman – A Viking Saga will take place over the course of eight weeks. Claudio Fah (of Sniper: Reloaded and Hollow Man 2 fame) will be directing.

Magnolia Buys the Rights to True Blood’s Ryan Kwanten’s Latest Movie

September 8, 2013

The Right Kind of Wrong Gets Snapped Up Before its Premiere at TIFF:

Ryan Kwanten stars as Jason Stackhouse in HBO's True Blood Season 6True Blood fans will be able to get their Ryan Kwanten (who plays Jason Stackhouse in HBO’s True Blood) fix thanks to Magnolia Pictures (owned by the Wagner/Cuban Company) snapping up the rights to his latest movie, The Right Kind of Wrong.

The movie will make its debut at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on Thursday September 12th 2013, but it appears the hype surrounding the movie was enough for Magnolia Pictures to grab it early. Magnolia’s president, Eamonn Bowles, has described the movie as being a ‘well directed crowd pleaser’.

The Right Kind of Wrong tells the story of Leo Palamino, a failed-writer-turned-dishwasher who’s main claim to fame is the fact that his ex-wife made a video about him called Why You Suck and then posted it to YouTube. Leo then meets the girl of his dreams – except it is her wedding day and she is getting married to Mr. Perfect!

The movie is produced by Robert Lantos and Ari Lantos. It also stars Catherine O’Hara and Will Sasso. The Right Kind of Wrong is adapted from Tim Sandlin’s novel Sex and Sunsets. 

If all goes according to plan, then fans should be able to see The Right Kind of Wrong in cinemas early in 2014. I certainly can’t wait for this movie – how about you? Let us know in the comments below!
