The days when Ryan Kwanten was best known for playing Jason Stackhouse on True Blood may be coming to an end. This year alone, he’s toplined three films — the upcoming action thriller Section Eight, last month’s Glorious (a two-hander with J.K. Simmons), and Expired. Here, Ryan shares what drives his project choices and performances and tells us why he feels seen by Maximus Decimus Meridius (as well as a fun and surprising alternate pick!).
Then, Jordan has one quick thing — breaking A24 trilogy news!
About the show
On Feeling Seen, writer and general enthusiast Jordan Crucchiola invites filmmakers, writers, comedians, and artists to discuss the movie characters that made them “feel seen.” It’s about that instant when a person connects to a piece of art so deeply that they see themselves reflected in it. Every week Jordan gabs it up with a guest about those magical moments when they were watching a film and realized, “That’s me!” It’s an informative, funny, and comforting show about our intimate relationship with movies, the impact they have on our lives, and how they influence our art.
