VIDEO: 90210's Ryan Eggold Is Proud of His Trophy Kids
Ryan Eggold with Tahyna Tozzi, Trophy Kids
Ryan Eggold spent his summer vacation from 90210 filming Trophy Kids, an indie that he describes as "a commentary on Generation Y, these kids who sort of... have a sense of entitlement."
Eggold plays Max, a guy "who's been on Easy Street his whole life." Bored and looking to stroke his ego, Max "arrives at the idea of making a film" — about his hard-living, party-boy self, of course, says Eggold.
As Max enlists an aspiring screenwriter (played by 7th Heaven's David Gallagher) to tell his tale, "Drama ensues, and there's a girl in the middle — as there always is!"
Tahyna Tozzi (X-Men Origins: Wolverine's Emma Frost) plays the beauty battled over by the boys, while Tania Raymonde (Lost) and Nathan Lee Graham (The Comeback) also have roles in the film.
Ultimately, Trophy Kids' filmmakers hope to get the finished product showcased at film festivals, where "you hope somebody sees it and falls in love with it," says Eggold.
