Ryan Phillippe hit the streets in NYC last night filming Damages on location. He's been cast to portray an Internet activist, loosely based on WikiLeaks Editor in Chief Julian Assange, for the fifth and final season of the primetime drama. Ryan's not the only notable star joining the cast as Jenna Elfman's also committed to a reoccurring role. Work took a backseat to partying on Tuesday night when Ryan met up with Leonardo DiCaprio, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and Kanye West for an A-list soiree at Manhattan's Darby Downstairs. Ryan's reportedly been considering a part-time move to the Big Apple since last Spring, but with a new baby girl, Kailani, as well as his two older kids Ava and Deacon in California, he'll always have a base on both coasts.
