“I am a leaf on the wind, watch how I soar”
“Curse your sudden, yet inevitable, betrayal!”
Those two quotes were taken from the Joss Whedon movie Serenity and the television show that it was based on, Firefly, and said by the much favored pilot, Wash (played by Alan Tudyk).
But now, we learned that he has been cast in the upcoming movie, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter!
According to ComicBookMovie.com:
Alan Tudyk will be joining the cast of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter as Stephen A. Douglas, the man that Lincoln ran against to become the 16th president of the United States.
Stephen Douglas was known as “The Little Giant” due to his small stature, but was also a political strong man and gave Lincoln a good run for the 1860 election,which as we all know, eventually went to Lincoln.
For those unfamiliar with the story, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is a fictional take on the life of the 16th president and his on-going battle with vampires. When Lincoln was a child, his mother was killed by a vampire and from that moment on, Abraham vowed to rid the nation of the blood suckers.
Are you excited about the movie?
With the addition of Tudyk to the cast, which includes Benjamin Walker (as Abraham Lincoln), Dominic Cooper, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Anthony Mackie, Jimmi Simpson and directed by Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) … I’m beginning to!
The film is set to be released on June 22, 2012.
