Twitter News Roundup!

It's been a while and although there have been no official announcements, Kris Holden-Ried has been dropping hints via his twitter feed of what our beloved lanky thespian has been up too. 

First seemed to be an indication he would be appearing in the sophomore season of Dark Matter. The evidence? Behold: 

On March 4th, he tweeted this image:

Then several days later he tweeted in response to Zoie Palmer a similar image of the set bathroom

Conclusion: Either he will be appearing on the show or he snuck on set to steal some props. You decide. 

Then in April, he unveiled an image of his new look. Hello face! He included a cryptic tweet about not wanting to to be "Taken" so either he's in the rumored TV series based on the Liam Neeson trilogy, a sequel to the SyFy mini series by the same name, or he's the cargo in the latest Transporter series. Can you imagine? A hard ass sexy female driver is contracted to deliver a package from point A to point B but along the way  gets curious and opens the trunk to find Kris Holden-Ried bundled up and gagged? Merry Christmas! But we'll see. I'm sure he'll give the details of whatever project it is as soon as he can. Until then, it's fun to speculate. 

I'm rooting for the Transporter thing. Only for the fun gender swap. Who should be cast as the driver though? Hmm... 

 

The Epitaph

Kris Holden-Ried's directorial debut was released on New Year's Day. A great way to ring in 2016. 

The short also stars Scott Cavalheiro as Luke with appearances by Grant Bradford and Jennifer Liao. So... what would you do if you knew they day you were going to die?
