The politicians running for the Republican nomination are all doing their best to emulate Ronald Reagan, but it'd be a lot more fun if they were working on their best impersonations of Abraham Lincoln.... Vampire Hunter.
Ben Walker plays the blood sucker-killing 16th President of the United States in the upcoming big screen adaptation of the Seth Grahame-Smith novel; having already played a funky president in the Broadway rendition of "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson," Walker now packs a wooden stake and a mean sense of vengeance as Honest Abe. The film, directed by Timur Bekmambetov, tells the story of Lincoln's "secret life," which involves, from an early age, stalking down and eliminating as many vampires as he can.
And you thought he just defeated the Confederacy!
Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Mary Todd Lincoln), Anthony Mackie (Lincoln's friend William Johnson) and Dominic Cooper (Henry Sturges, his vampire mentor) co-star in the film, which is due out in June. Check out a special behind-the-scenes video, and then a poster from the film below.
