Ryan Kwanten warns 'Twilight' vamps: 'We fight dirty in Bon Temps'

Ryan kwanten true blood twilight Heads up to the Cullens and the wolf pack -- if "Breaking Dawn" films both parts in the South this fall, look out for the scrappy creatures of "True Blood."

"We fight dirty down in Bon Temps," Ryan Kwanten said  Tuesday night, of the fictional town in Louisiana where Alan Ball's HBO hit is set. "You're dealing with Southern vampires, and we're real dirty."

Rampant rumors abound that director Bill Condon and Summit Entertainment will take the final two chapters in the "Twilight Saga" to New Orleans -- infringing on "True Blood's" territory.

Kwanten, who plays hot-headed human Jason Stackhouse on "True Blood," has no real-life qualms with another undead posse moving in. "They're paying the bills at the moment, so I'm not sick of vampires yet," he said of the bloodsucker phenomenon.

The actor played host to Ubisoft's video game launch of "Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands" at L.A.'s Skybar, with Break Media and Wodka Vodka. Kwanten palled around with geek pinup Olivia Munn, actor Jesse Metcalfe and singer Macy Gray.

Kwanten says he is a big video game buff in his down time, and usually with a few friends.

"We've been know to do it together, and I've been known to do it alone," he said of his gaming.
