"Vamps" is one of those upcoming films that we just keep getting more and more excited for, the more we hear about it. The Amy Heckerling comedy is currently filming in Detroit, but that isn't stopping them from adding a whole slew of new, exciting actors.
To refresh, the film already boasts Alicia Silverstone and Krysten Ritter as two beautiful female vampires living the "good nightlife" in NYC, which is interrupted when love comes into the picture. Sigourney Weaver plays the vampire queen who turned them, and a whole bunch of pretty men like Dan Stevens and Justin Kirk will be there for the ogling. What could make this cast any better, you ask?
Malcolm freakin' McDowell, that's who. The man who terrified us in "A Clockwork Orange," "Heroes," "In Good Company..." heck, we're sure he'll probably even give us the spooks in "Easy A," has joined the cast as none other than Vlad the Impaler, also known in this universe as Vlad Tepish. Did we mention his character loves wearing velvet jogging suits and knitting? Count us in.
In addition to Malcolm, two other cast members have recently joined the fold. Marilu Henner will play a vamp named Angela who was recently awakened to her former hot self. And there's Zak Orth (he's been in lots of things even if he wasn't a notable actor in them), who will play a nerdy friend of the girls who thinks he's much more hardcore than he actually is. And if we can guess how these things will go, he'll probably end up being a romantic interest for either Alicia or Krysten's character.
Did we mention Malcolm McDowell will be in this?!
Does "Vamps" casting news get you as excited for this film as it does for us?
