Ryan Kwanten (‘Jonah’) - The most important thing for me is, firstly, does the script work, and secondly, is it going to challenge me as an actor? Is it something I’ve never done before? And working with talent. I knew within minutes that Peter had a really unique vision.
i hate peein’ in those damn cups…

Ryan Corr talks about his character Gus, and acting opposite Ryan Kwanten in Not Suitable For Children.

At the Movies with Margaret & David

Gives Ryan Kwanten’s latest movie Not Suitable for Children 4 out 5 stars.

What lifts this Australian romantic-comedy above the level of most of its Hollywood counterparts is the reality of the characters and the situations and the honesty of the film’s approach. Once you accept the fact that Jonah has this strong desire for parenthood, everything falls into place.

Sarah Snook on Working with Ryan Kwanten
Had you met Ryan Kwanten before, or worked with him?  No. The first time I met him was on the screen chemistry test. I went to the States and worked with him there for a screen test.
What was he like as a leading man and a love interest in this film?  So lovely. And such a good spirit. Very playful, very happy, very easy to go with anything. Super creative and always thinking about what else could happen within a scene. And trying things with the other actor and making a very safe space to work.
You guys have some interesting sex scenes.  Yeah. [Laughs]
if this doesn’t come to the states… i’ll be crushed

Kwanten will next appear on Australian cinema screens in Not Suitable For Children as Jonah, a free-spirited party lover whose body clock starts ticking loudly when he learns he has testicular cancer and will be infertile when he is treated for it in a month.
"I think it’s a really good point that we, as men, have just as many issues as girls. We’re just not as good as expressing it sometimes."

The Australian Way Ryan Kwanten for Mambo

As the ambassador for Mambo, what do you love about the line? Would you be interested in designing a special Speedo for them (I’m just kidding)!
Hahaha, no I’ve moved on from my Speedo days and more into the board shorts! I love that Mambo, as much as it is a fashion label, it approaches fashion with a sense of humor. There’s far too many fashion lines that take it too seriously. So here’s a brand that’s doing great stuff but isn’t afraid to have a bit of a laugh. That’s sort of the Australian way, we don’t take ourselves too seriously.

Yes! Just as cool as being in chess club! It makes everyone love you more. Last random question: What is your best pick up line?

True Blood’s Nicest Bad Boy Fills Us In.

Your southern accent is so authentic-sounding on True Blood! Was it difficult to learn? That’s one of the few traits I have, I have this weird talent to pick up random accents [laughing]. I can do lots of voices, and I have a good ear for listening. I think that’s part of being from Australia is that you’re exposed to tons of different cultures and ways of speech.

What was the hardest word for you to learn to say? “Body.” The way I say it is very flat. In the south, it’s more like, “bawwwwdy.” It kind of describes exactly the visualization about, like the curves of the human body. That’s my unscientific opinion, at least [laughing].

Where do you see Jason in a few years? I feel like….

Sleep Isn’t a Priority for Mr. Kwanten…He Just Keeps Going and Going

How did you get involved with Mambo?

Well they originally approached me in the beginning of this year.  I obviously had heard of Mambo- they’re very, very big in Australia.  In fact, I recently read an article where in the last thirty years they’ve [become] one of the most influential apparel labels ever [there].

Do you skate or surf at all?

I do both.  I grew up on the beach so mainly surfing. Believe it or not, [I grew up] in the same small little beach town where Mambo is made, which is called Manly. I actually grew up in what we call “Poor Man’s Manly,” it’s the same little stretch of beach but just at the other end.

You play Jason Stackhouse on True Blood, which is such a great show. What’s your favorite episode that you guys have filmed?

Alan Ball Q&A Down Under

Is it true you sought out Kwanten to play Jason Stackhouse?

It is. I went to see this movie called Flicka, a family movie about a brother and sister and a horse, and he was the handsome, charming, not-so-intellectually developed brother. He was Jason. I called my casting director that day.

So Kwanten is particularly good at playing dummies?

Ryan is tremendously underrated. I think that because he is so good at portraying Jason, who is not the brightest bulb in the drawer, people tend to think that that just must be who he is … Ryan is actually really intelligent. He’s a really eloquent, deep, smart guy but he doesn’t have the vanity to feel like he has to let us know that he is not as dim as Jason. I also admire Ryan’s ability in a very clean, very economic way to let you know exactly what his character is thinking.
