Ryan Kwanten Enlists With “Knights”

Aussie hunk and “True Blood” star Ryan Kwanten has joined the cast of Joe Lynch’s new feature “Knights of Badassdom” reports Access Hollywood.

Asked to describe the film, Kwanten says “it’s sort of a comedy … like ‘Shaun of the Dead’ meets ‘Role Models’. it’s that real black comedy that I really love.” The story follows a group of live-action role players who conjure up a demon from hell by mistake and must deal with the consequences.

Peter Dinklage, Douglas Tait and Steve Zahn also star in the project which begins filming this Summer. Lynch (“Wrong Turn 2: Dead End”) helms from a script by Kevin Dreyfuss and Matt Wall.
