Our teenage selves would have imploded with excitement at the thought of Ryan Phillippe and Casper Van Dien starring in the same film. Whilst it is certainly no longer 1999 – both handsome actors have aged like fine wines, as shown in the trailer for upcoming action thriller The 2nd. Check out the full synopsis below:
Secret-service agent Vic Davis (Ryan Phillippe) is on his way to pick up his estranged son, Shawn (Jack Griffo), from his college campus when he finds himself in the middle of a high-stakes terrorist operation. The daughter of a Supreme Court Justice (Lexi Simonsen) is the target and this armed faction will stop at nothing to kidnap her Vic quickly realizes that there’s no one coming to rescue them and must now use his entire set of skills to save her and his son from an incredibly dangerous and lethal situation.
Of course Casper is known as the chiselled Johnny Rico of Starship Troopers and has maintained a busy career in straight to video output since. Ryan has been a staple of the big screen since high profile turns in I Know What You Did Last Summer, Cruel Intentions, and Crash.
The film hits Demand and On Digital September 1st. To tide you over, we’ve compiled some of Ryan and Casper’s hottest moments below.
