Monday Morning Man: Ryan Doucette!
I had an outstanding time at the Long Beach QFilm Festival over the weekend and will be posting about some of the films I saw and which won awards in a post later today.
But first things first!
This uncommonly beautiful man is actor Ryan Doucette who was on of the stars of the opening movie, Cloudburst.
I was expecting kind of a sad drama but instead it was a touching movie with plenty of comedy. Olympia Dukakis and Brenda Fricker play an aging lesbian couple who escape from a nursing home in Maine and take off to Nova Scotia to be legally married.
They kind of reminded me of Thelma & Louise but instead of picking up a sexy hitchhiker played by Brad Pitt, they picked up a sexy hitchhiker played by Ryan Doucette! And instead of scamming them, he ends up as kind of an adopted son who joins them for their adventure.
Since landing his first major role Cloudburst, Ryan has made three more features: Roaming, The Disappeared and Copperhead.
He describes himself on his Twitter account as an “actor, writer, clown, procrastinator.”
Ryan is from Nova Scotia and began his career performing with a theater troup and appeared in many stage productions in his hometown including a production of Cloudburst.
I have a feeling we’re going to be hearing a lot more about this talented young guy! Here is a LINK to his website.
