Alan Ritchson's star as an actor is on the rise and it is becoming more apparent every day. The handsome actor is currently being seen in the box office hit "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" where he plays the role of Raphael, the angry hothead of the group who is quick to act and less thoughtful of the feelings of others.
In an interview with Comic Book Resources he revealed that he and his brother used to play the Ninja Turtles arcade games so there was some connection with the movie and then when he had the opportunity to learn about his character there developed an even greater connection because the personality of Raphael and himself are in some respects very similar.
He sees his character as one who has no problem "swimming upstream" to make his own honest life and find his own truth. Alan Ritchson notes how people in the world are very accustomed to going by the rules no matter how nonsensical they are but now people are slowly becoming more accepting of those who think differently.
He is one of those individuals who is not going to travel in one direction just because everyone else is doing it and follow certain rules without thinking first. Alan Ritchson like Raphael is someone who someone who makes quick decisions and then acts and does not spend much time worrying about the consequences.
His decisions have made him one of the most desirable and in-demand actors in Hollywood. For the past several years he has been known for his impressive physique but now he is being looked at as an actor who is more than just a gorgeous physical specimen thanks to his role in "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles which in its first weekend has become one of the box office hits of the summer of 2014.
Alan Ritchson is an actor who seems primed to become a 'major' movie commodity in the upcoming months. He is scheduled to start filming a starring role in the movie "Blue Mountain State" due out in 2015 and also has another "The Wedding Ringer" in post-production so fans can expect to see him on the big screens throughout the next year and that is a pleasant thought for many men and women.
