Ryan Locke in The New Twenty!

Ryan Locke's new film The New Twenty had its world premiere at Outfest. The storyline revolves around the relationships of five college friends many years after graduation. According to the Hollywood Reporter, "the picture has an attractive cast and some sharp, intelligent writing.... the film may prove to be an effective calling card for Johnson and several of the actors.Andrew (Ryan Locke) is an investment banker engaged to Julie (Nicole Bilderback), a rising executive. Their relationship is tested when they meet Louie (Terry Serpico), a ruthless venture capitalist who promises to set Andrew up in business. This triangle provides most of the movie's drama."

Ryan competed at IMTA’s while he was still in high school and won Male Model of the Year! His exclusive contract with Nautica made him one of the highest paid male models in the industry and a celebrity figure. You’ve seen him in every major fashion magazine modeling for such industry giants as for Michael Kors, Gucci, Donna Karan, Versace and Nautica. He was named Male Model of the year by the VH1 Fashion Awards in 1998. Ryan has crossed over into acting and appeared in various projects such as Supercross, Gingerdead Man, Life, Wanted and American Black Beauty. His first appearance in a feature film was in American Gun with James Coburn.
