Here's the clip, with Kwanten as Griff and Maeve Dermody as Melody, a character just as odd and unconventional as the unlikely superhero.
Kwanten should be familiar to American audiences from Alan Ball's popular HBO series True Blood. The Australian actor has won legions of fans playing Sookie's brother and general man-floozy Jason Stackhouse on the sexy and gothic Southern vampire series. He also stars alongside the likes of Peter Dinklage, Danny Pudi, Summer Glau, and Joshua Malina in the upcoming LARP-horror-comedy mashup The Knights of Badassdom.
Leon Ford both wrote and directed Griff the Invisible. Ford is also an actor, and he appeared on the HBO miniseries The Pacific. His offbeat superhero tale has earned praise on the festival circuit, playing fests including the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival and this year's Berlin Film Festival.
Griff the Invisible hits American theaters today, August 19th.
