Ryan Hansen plays Ben Lewis, a carefree bachelor on the lookout for a woman who meets his impossible standards, on NBC's new comedy, "Friends with Benefits."
Most recently, Hansen played Kyle in the Starz original comedy series "Party Down." He is probably best known to audiences as Dick Casablancas on the hit show "Veronica Mars." Since his work on that series concluded, he has shot leading roles in four films including "Superhero Movie," "Housebroken" opposite Danny DeVito, "818" and "Friday the 13th."
Hansen also starred in the online series "Rockville" created by Josh Schwartz.
Hansen and his wife, Amy, reside in San Diego and are especially proud of their work with the charity Invisible Children, which helps children in war-torn Northern Uganda.
