“True Blood” star Ryan Kwanten hosted Veuve Clicquot’s “Yelloween” celebration on Friday, October 29th at Tao Nightclub inside the Venetian hotel in Las Vegas. Hundreds of fans turned out dressed in some elaborate costumes to see the handsome star. Kwanten, sporting a “Public Enemies”-inspired look, was greeted by cheers from his fellow Australians in attendance.
Kwanten plays Jason Stackhouse in the hit tv show, but his next gig will take him to a world free of Vampires and Werewolves. He will play Shane Cooper, a police officer, in “RED HILL”. Young police officer Shane Cooper relocates to the small country town of Red Hill with his pregnant wife Alice to start a family. But when news of a prison break sends the local law enforcement officers – led by the town’s ruling presence, Old Bill – into a panic, Shane’s first day on duty rapidly turns into a nightmare. Enter Jimmy Conway, a convicted murderer serving life behind bars, who has returned to the isolated outpost seeking revenge. Now caught in the middle of what will become a terrifying and bloody confrontation, Shane will be forced to take the law into his own hands if he is to survive. A taut thriller which unfolds over the course of a single day and night, and told with explosive action and chilling violence, Red Hill is a modern-day western played out against the extraordinary landscapes of high-country Australia. The film will open in the U.S. on November 5th. For more information on the film check out www.redhillmovie.com.
