Ryan Kwanten Admits He’s A Masochist

“I’m a huge fan of Westerns. It was originally pitched to me like that, so I was gleefully rubbing my hands together, flipping through the script. I realized pretty quickly on that even though my character is called Shane Cooper—after ‘Shane’ and Gary Cooper—he didn’t really have the iconic quality that a classic Western hero has. He’s very fallible. I mean, in the first frame, he’s forgotten his gun—this isn’t exactly a Clint Eastwood gun slinging guy who takes down any posse. I felt like he was more relatable, so everytime he’s knocked down, you’re hoping he gets back up again. I love it. Really and truly. My friends will attest to the fact I’m very much a masochist at heart.”

—”True Blood” eye candy Ryan Kwanten talks about his new movie, “Red Hill,” a role he says he took to show he could be something besides Jason Stackhouse. But wait, Jason is a bumbling police officer too, no? [NY Post]
