While the reviews of Allan Ball's new HBO show True Blood have been mixed, there's been nothing but raves for actor Ryan Kwanten in his role as "Jason Stackhouse," the series male sex pot. And it doesn't really take more than one quick look at this hunky 32-year-old to see why everybody's talkin.
Ryan is, by no means, a newcomer. He's been acting for the last 16 years, starting on TV in his native Australia where he quickly earned a loyal (and lusty) following with his longtime portrayal of lifeguard Vince Patterson on the hit series Home and Away. His move to the U.S. in 2003 basically kickstarted his film career and he continued to appear in a wide variety of international television projects.
Starting with his earliest TV appearances, Ryan has traded heavily on his beachboy good-looks and surfer bod, providing a plentiful dose of skin in nearly every one of his performances. But it wasn't really until True Blood that we've gotten the opportunity to see Mr. K. in the buff on a regular basis. It's gotten so bad (that is, good) that some critics are actually complaining that there's too much naked Ryan! Go figure!!!
We're totally pleased to have the biggest haul of Ryan Kwanten flesh on the planet with lots of pictures and video clips, especially from the new series. Here's just one from the Starmale archive:
