Ryan on “Sway in the Morning” (Video)

Remember when Shia Labeouf came by Sway in the Morning and lit our mics on fire with his crazy bars?! Around that same time Ryan Phillippe popped up on our TL — who knew he was such a hip-hop head?!

Today, Philippe joins us in our Shade 45 studio to talk about, ‘Shooter,’ the TV series on USA Network and “Wish Upon,” his new film hitting theaters this Friday.

While in studio, we dive a little deeper in his love for hip-hop, how he met Post Malone and directed 2 of his videos and… he enters the valley of the HYEENAS!!

Ryan Talks “I Know What You Did Last Summer” and New Film “Wish Upon”

Ryan Phillippe talks 20th anniversary of ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ and new film ‘Wish Upon’


Ryan Phillippe is starring in the upcoming supernatural horror film “Wish Upon.”

The actor stopped by ABC News’ “Good Morning America” today to discuss his role as a father who gives his daughter a mysterious music box, not knowing the dark powers it possesses.

“It’s got shades of ‘Mean Girls’ and ‘The Craft,'” Phillippe, 42, said. “The cool thing about it is it’s scary, but it’s not gory. It’s not like ‘Saw’ or something. It’s a little more fun than that.”

Phillippe plays the father of a 17-year-old girl. Having a 17-year-old daughter in real life helped him relate to his character, he said.

“It made it so easy for Joey and I to connect, and she’s absolutely wonderful,” he said of his daughter, actress Joey King. “This girl has got a massive career ahead of her.”

Phillippe, who appeared in the 1997 film “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” said he has memories of the slasher movie, which turns 20 this year.

“I remember it was a really exciting time because Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze [Jr.] and Jennifer Love Hewitt and I were all kind of starting our careers out, and it felt like it was our first big-studio movie at the time,” he said of his co-stars.

“One anecdotal thing I remember from the shooting of it is that I had the great idea to take my rental car on the beach in North Carolina with Sarah Michelle and got it stuck in a sand dune and had to get it towed out before production realized. But you do a lot of dumb stuff when you’re young.”

“Wish Upon” opens nationwide Friday.

Ryan Phillippe to visit Capitol Hill to advocate for military caregivers

Ryan Phillippe is headed to Capitol Hill, joining former Sen. Elizabeth Dole (R-N.C.) at a hearing to advocate for military caregivers.
The 42-year-old “Crash” actor — an ambassador for Hidden Heroes, an initiative of the Elizabeth Dole Foundation — will testify Wednesday before the Senate Special Committee on Aging at a hearing called, “Military Caregivers: Families Servicing for the Long Run.”

Phillippe, the star of USA’s “Shooter,” will lobby for legislation that supporters say would increase the number of caregivers who have access to Department of Veterans Affairs services.

The hearing, hosted by Sens. Bob Casey (D-Pa.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine), is being held in the Dirksen Senate Office Building.
