Ryan has been cast in the new indie film While We're Young, the latest from Squid and the Whale director Noah Baumbach. Although Ryan is best known for his multi-million dollar real estate dealings, this is, in a way, a return to his roots. After studying English literature and theater in college, Ryan appeared on As the World Turns in 2007 and 2008.
The Bravolebrity-turned-movie star will certainly be in great company. While We're Young stars Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, Amanda Seyfried and Girls actor Adam Driver.
The Wrap, which was first to report the news, notes that producers are mum on the details of Ryan's role.
After news of the casting broke, Ryan posted a screenshot on Instagram with the message: "Speechless. Thank you Noah Baumbach and Ben Stiller for believing in me and giving me this opportunity. I am beyond excited!!!"
