Vampires beware!

Earlier this month, we learned that a bunch of actors were screen testing for the role of Honest Abe, including some unknowns.

Now, it looks like Fox and director Timur Bekmambetov have found their Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter star, and his name is Benjamin Walker!

Pretty impressive that Walker was able to beat out the likes of Adrien Brody and Timothy Olyphant for the role, especially since he's been doing mostly Broadway work lately.

Congratulations, Benjamin! Give those vampires hell!

Do U think they made a good choice for President #16?

    I just saw him on Broadway this past December in "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson". You could tell he was going to be a huge star. Not surprised that he won this role. He is a great singer as well.

    Re: Catherine Morrison – Its actually based on a 2010 book. The book reached #4 on the New York Times Bestseller list. Strange? Yes, but popular. Hence the movie adaptation.
