Ryan Phillippe Takes It Off In The Restored Version of “54”

You’ve waited 17 years to watch Ryan Phillippe make out with Breckin Meyer, so what’s a few more hours? The two actors shared a passionate kiss as thirsty young men on the make at Manhattan’s most notorious nightclub in the 1998 drama 54, only to have it end up on the cutting room floor. Now the make-out sesh is back, along with approximately 40 additional minutes of footage that compromised director Mark Christopher’s cinematic vision when the film was initially released.

54: The Director’s Cut  will be available on Digital HD tomorrow but whet your appetites with the trailer below.

    I want the Blu Ray disc, please.

  • Avery Alvarez

    mmm I have so many spank bank memories as a teenager from Ryan Phillippe. He’s still a beautiful man.

  • Andrew Rankin

    Bring out the BluRay & a CD pack. I did have the CD but it’s one of the CDs that mysteriously vanished from my collection. Thankfully have it on my iPod but I’d love to have the CD again.

  • Chevelter

    BLU RAY PLEASE! For those of us who don’t stream and/or want to own a physical copy, and there are a lot of us.

  • Luis Collazo

    Damn I wanna see he’s so fine!

  • Billy Budd

    I live in Brazil and my only connection with the civilized world is through Ebay and Amazon. Therefore, I need a Blu Ray Disc of this movie!

  • Roberson Randy

    I’ve been waiting for this to become available.

    The film was awful but Ryan was total perfection.

  • SteveDenver

    I still love him in Little Boy Blue — crap film, but he bares full butt.

  • Fleuron

    I met Ryan in 1992 at a luncheon in Manhattan while he was playing gay teen Billy Douglas on “One Life to Live.” Nice guy! He participated in a Q & A session, signed autographs, and posed for photos.

    Here is a compilation of some dramatic scenes from OLTL where Billy tells his parents that he’s gay.

    Fleuron..I just watched the link you provided…
    Nobody, but nobody has the right to be that good looking AND that talented.

    I saw him in the original Studio 54, but this blew my mind.

    I’ve never been a fan of ‘soap operas’ I didn’t know what I was missing.

    Thank you for providing the link.
