Jay Ryan lands major US TV lead

Go Girls’ Jay Ryan has landed a lead role in the CW’s upcoming show Beauty and the Beast and will star alongside Kristin Kreuk.

The CW’s version of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ is a reboot of the popular 1980’s CBS version that starred Linda Hamilton and Ron Perlman. In this modern update, Ryan will play Vincent Koslow, the survivor of a military experiment that went disastrously wrong. According to plot details from Movie Hole, Vincent used to be a New York University Hospital doctor and became injured while working during the Twin Towers attack. While at a medical clinic, they inject him with a DNA changing drug but it turns him into a super soldier. He is sent to Afghanistan to fight but while there, realizes that the drug’s side effects cause his features to change and hair to grow everywhere on his body. When he returns to the States, he decides to hide from society with the help of his best friend T.J. (played by Austin Basis).

Ryan has had roles in a number of shows down under including Sea Patrol and Terra Nova.  

The biggest question is how will this affect Go Girls as he has narrated the series for the last four seasons and is a pivotal character to the story.
