Ryan has been booked as a guest star for the New Girl Valentine’s Day episode next Tuesday as a love interest for Zooey Deschanel. Today on Good Day LA, Kwanten explained the surprisingly simple manner in which he landed the role.
“I was very much a fan of the show anyway, so I sort of reached out to them through my agent, and said, ‘Listen, if there was ever an opportunity to ever get on the show, I’d love to be able to work with Zoe … She is the cutest,” he explained. After Steve Edwards was surprised at the simplicity of how it all came together, Kwanten had to acknowledge that his other gig helped his effort considerably. “I guess being on ‘True Blood’ adds a little bit of cache,” he admitted.
