Still reeling from the reveal of Rob’s golfing hobby and the squee-tastic new trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, it’s all about vampires today at VH1. Well, let’s be real. Every day is a vampire-obsessed day … so naturally when VH1 News hit the red carpet of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, we just had to know: Who does the cast think is the hottest vampire ever to grace the silver screen?
While we admittedly were fishing for answers involving a name that rhymes with Smattinson, we were shocked and awed that not a single red-carpet attendee fell into our trap. Dominic Cooper and Jimmi Simpson rep’d their generation with Kiefer Sutherland in The Lost Boys, while director Timur Bekmambetov, writer Seth Grahame-Smith, Robin McLeavy and Abe himself Benjamin Walker went with OG vampires like Nosferatu. Erin Wasson and Mary Elizabeth Winstead left us less confused with Brad Pitt in Interview With a Vampire. Watch the interviews below and let us know in our poll who really is the hottest vampire of all-time.
I started my day at the Spike Scream Awards on a shuttle bus, which carried press past Wisteria Lane (so cool!) and the Jaws set all the way to the outdoor amphitheater which housed the show. I ended the night washing down a slider with some red wine after a bear hug from Cuba Gooding Jr. Wanna know what happened in between? Read on for my account of the 11 Best Behind-the-Scene Moments at the Spike Scream Awards. I was there. For eight hours. And I screamed a lot…in a fangirl-y sorta way.
11. Everyone freaking out over Drive star Ron Perlman hanging out backstage. Nino, guys. Effing NINO. Press and stars alike stared in awe at the celebrated character actor, and I’m going to assume we were all thinking the same thing: “OMG the guy who plays Nino is here. He is so badass. Yep, I’m going to listen to the Drive soundtrack for the 202o13013560th time on my drive home tonight.”
10. Teen Wolf-ers Tyler Posey and Colton Haynes surprising their co-star (and candidate for prettiest redhead in the world) Holland Roden on the red carpet. She screamed – which was more than appropriate considering the night.
9. Lena Headley and Sean Bean from Game of Thrones sharing smokes and beers with Dr. Who star Matt Smith. Beautiful Brits stick together backstage.
8. Joe Manganiello — AKA Alcide on True BloodÃ‚Â — asking me if he could swear on camera after he won Breakout Performance. Obviously I said yes. “It’s f*ckin’ awesome!” was his reply. He is an absolute delight.
Vampire hunting…it’s not just for fairy tale characters! Death Proof‘s Mary Elizabeth Winstead has signed up to play Mary Todd Lincoln in the upcoming Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, where she’ll be teamed with Benjamin Walker (already playing a bad-ass president in Broadway’s Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) as honest Abe. Dominic Cooper is also lined up for a role in the adaptation of last year’s novel.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter should not be mistaken for the upcoming Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton, which should not be mistaken for those three Snow White movies in pre-production. Since we love both Walker and Winstead (last seen in Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World), we’re hoping Lincoln doesn’t get lost in the old-school ass-kicking shuffle.
