Guilty Pleasure: Ryan Kwanten

Known internationally for his portrayal of oversexed-ladies-man Jason Stackhouse, Ryan Kwanten is just one of the many residents of Bon Temps that I wouldn’t mind running into when I decide to visit the good state of Louisiana (And apparently, the good looking state).

Unlike his character on “True Blood,” Kwanten is no dumby. He is a graduate of the University of Sydney, where he earned a Commerce degree.

Kwanten got his start on the television series, “A Country Practice,” where he portrayed Ben Lloyd in a two-part episode arc.

He then continued to appear on television on shows such as “Hey Dad..!,” “Echo Point,” “Water Rats” and “Spellbinder.”

He got his Australian big break when he starred on the soap opera “Home and Away,” where he first made his appearance as Robbie Taylor in 1994, and then returned to the show in 1997 as Vinnie Patterson, a different character from Robbie Taylor.

After leaving “Home and Away,” and Australia, Kwanten made his American big break in “Summerland,” starring alongside Lori Loughin as Jay Robertson.

And then in 2008, he was cast as Bon Temps resident Jason Stackhouse.

Kwanten has also made his face known to moviegoers. He’s appeared in “Flicka,” “Dead Silence,” “Don’t Fade Away” and, more recently, “Not Suitable for Children.”

Like most of the “True Blood” cast, Kwanten has no problem dropping his trousers for his fans. Enjoy these series of pictures of nothing but Kwanten in all his glory.

Here are some of my favorite pictures of Kwanten, as an Angel.


And he’s got quite the backside, too. Now, this is what you call a bubble butt.

If you want to see more of Kwanten after the “True Blood” season finale this Sunday, you can catch him in a few of his upcoming movies.

Before this year is over, he can be seen in “The Knights of Badassdom,” where live-action role players conjure up a Demon from Hell by mistake and they must deal with the consequences.

In 2013, you can catch him in the horror film, “7500,” where passengers aboard a flight across the Pacific Ocean encounter a supernatural force. (Gee, he sure will be in a lot of supernatural movies).

In addition to “7500,” he is set to star in “Hands of Stone,” “Mystery Stone,” “Five Good Years” and “Sex and Sunsets.” All of these movies are set to be released in 2013. For more information on any of these movies, you can look them up on, or you can look Kwanten up on for more information on his upcoming movies and for more information on Ryan Kwanten.

Don’t forget to watch Jason Stackhouse and the rest of the residents of Ben Temps in the season finale of “True Blood” this Sunday at 9 p. m. on HBO. Like every other season finale of “True Blood,” it will definitely go down with a bang, and viewers will more than likely be left with a cliffhanger.

Here’s a preview of the finale.
