Welcome To The Ryan Phillippe Gun Show
While Ryan was out, he decided to give us a little something something to perk up our Monday morning. Ryan showed off his buff arms and bulged in all the right places.
Ryan has a film titled The Big Bang Club. The film tells the real-life story of the Bang-Bang Club, four South African photographers whose images documented the bloody end of apartheid. Phillippe stars as Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Greg Marinovich. which filmed in South Africa.
Phillippe described the filming process as "really run-and-gun. There were no comforts, and I actually appreciate that". He noted that the experience has impacted him, explaining that "we were shooting during the day in Soweto, and it was an endless procession of funerals—death is so common. Kids there have no quality of life. It has made me want to get more involved in Africa-based charities.
In the summer of 2010, Phillippe will begin filming The Big Valley, a movie based on the TV series, alongside Susan Sarandon, Billy Bob Thornton, Richard Dreyfuss and Bruce Dern.
Also in the works for Ryan is a Showtime project with his long-time friends Breckin Meyer, Seth Green, and David E. Siegal, with whom he runs a production company called Lucid Films. Phillippe is becoming more actively involved in his films as a producer, and he and Meyer are currently "getting a show going for Showtime", serving as producers.
