His Twitter page is filled with pictures like the one below, on set with Mel Gibson and Diego Luna.
They made the film Blood Father together, which is still in post production.

The caption of the happy image was, “Ready for another crazy day – working w/ & learning from the #legends #MelGibson & #DiegoLuna.”

His resume on imdb also includes TV roles in shows like Parks and Rec, Mob City, and Southland.

2. He’s Been Friends With Naya for 4 Years

Rivera posted the above Instagram picture with the caption, “Hey haters!!!” a few days ago while the couple was horseback riding on the beach.

The couple cleaned up nicely, with Rivera wearing a white Monique Lhuillier lace long-sleeved wedding gown and Dorsey dapper in a Dolce & Gabbana suit on their big day.

3. He Went to Drama School

Similar to Rivera’s character, Santana, on Glee, Dorsey moved to New York City to pursue acting.

The Charleston, West Virginia native attended the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts in Manhattan.

He later moved to L.A., where he met Naya.

His Instagram profile boasts the places he’s lived:

Born wild in WV NC NYC CA. DreamBig.LaughHard.

4. He Got Married in Cabo

According to People, the ceremony took place on the beach with just close family and friends in attendance.

The marriage surprised Hollywood, especially since people didn’t even know they were dating. Although media outlets did report the couple was spending time in Cabos San Lucas this past weekend, there was no mention of a wedding.

In fact, Us Weekly reported that the couple was on a “sexy getaway” on July 21.

The headline of their article was, “Naya Rivera Dating Actor Ryan Dorsey? Her Sexy Getaway After Big Sean Split.”

On July 22, the Daily Mail published pictures of Rivera posing for her man as he snapped a photo. They refer to their excursion as “holidaying.”

5. He Pretended He Was Single in May
