Matt Ryan, The Actor Not The Football Player

Apparently a lot of other people have also found themselves wondering about actor Matt Ryan. He’s set to play Mick Rawson, a Supervisory Special Agent — and possible former British Secret Service agent — in the Criminal Minds spin off, if it gets going.

The problem with hunting up any information about him is that he shares a name with a famous football player here in the U.S. who is a quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons.

Ryan the actor, who I imagine doesn’t play American football, had a small part in The Tudors as Mr. Pace, one of Wolsey’s spies in the first season.

I haven’t seen anything else he’s done, and all IMDB has about him personally is that he graduated from the Bristol Old Vic school in Britain in 2003 and joined the Royal Shakespeare Company in 2004.

I’ve been getting some queries about him so I thought I’d try to get you all at least a little more information. Hope this helps.
